Freeform Lenses

Caledonian Optical Ltd is committed to investing in the latest progression in lens technology in order to provide our customers with the highest quality lenses. Using our complete line of Schneider freeform manufacturing equipment, we have the ability to produce Digital Freeform Lenses.

Compared to conventional varifocals, the new process of back surface design allows varifocals with wider zones and greatly improved clarity. Freeform enables cutting of power curves to one hundredth of a dioptre, multiple corridor lengths and fitting heights to suit patients using a wide selection of materials including CR39, Transitions, Polarised, Trivex, Hi Index & Polycarbonate.

Conventional Lenses

Conventional lenses do not account for eye dynamics:

  • Calculations are based upon a universally standard design
  • The individual patient’s visual experience is not optimal
  • Poor optical quality noticeably reduces user’s visual quality in near vision and lateral distances
