Advanced lens technology delivers nearly twice the crossfading speed of its first generation
Demand for light-adaptive lenses increases by two-thirds1 of patients now report sensitivity
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, November 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The leader in ophthalmic lens technology, HOYA Vision Care, today announced the next generation of its light sensitive lenses. Two out of three eye patients are sensitive to light, making light-adaptive lenses a practical and comfortable everyday vision solution for most patients. A significant improvement over the previous generation of Sensity lenses, Sensity 2 lenses offer almost twice the crossfade speed – approximately 42% faster.
Building on more than five years of success with its first-generation Sensity® lenses, HOYA Vision Care has created a product that darkens quickly to a Category 3 sunglass tint, fades almost twice as fast to a clear lens on the inside, and still offers the same comfort, convenience and protection as the entire Sensity family – with 100% UV protection, reduced sun glare when activated and indoor and outdoor blue light protection2.
Available today, Sensity 2 lenses are available in three intense natural color options: Silver Grey, Bronze Brown and Emerald green. They are compatible with HOYA’s Single Vision, Backside Progressives and iD designs, as well as all current HOYA anti-reflective coatings.
Two key technological innovations underpin improved lens performance: Stabilight technology provides consistent performance and UV protection regardless of the climate, cold or hot. Precision technology ensures a microscopically precise spin-coating process, creating superior adhesion for high scratch resistance.
“We are excited to bring Sensity 2 lenses to market, providing an even faster fade that ECPs and their patients will greatly benefit from,” said Nick La MannaDirector of Product Management for HOYA Vision Care, North America. “Our continued focus on improving our products has made us an industry leader in light-adaptive lens technology, and these are no exception.”
