Caledonian Optical and SHAW Lens have partnered together to bring optometrists the first major lens innovation since the introduction of freeform digital lenses.
SHAW Vision “Binocular by Design” technology can be applied to Caledonian Optical’s ZONE range of freeform, digital lens offerings.
Mark Robertson, Commercial Manager for Caledonian Optical, said: “We are excited to be able to offer a true state of the art solution for all glasses wearers. The SHAW patented enhancement eliminates the aniseikonia and anisophoria typically experienced by glasses users wearing ordinary freeform, aspheric or conventional lens therapies
“SHAW technology addresses the unique therapeutic requirements for patients with amblyopia, strabismus, anisometropia, post-surgical refractive error, concurrent contact lens wear or just general dissatisfaction with glasses, especially progressives.”
Dr Peter Shaw, Developer of the SHAW lens system added: “As an optometry student I was taught how to solve aniseikonia – but the maths needed to design lenses lens was arduous so I invented an automated computerised design method. Over the past 10 years, I’ve been successful in making very complex lens design technology easily integrated into every eye care practice.
“The SHAW lens uses doctor measured motor fusion (vergence) limits and sophisticated maths to create lenses that takes into account how the eyes move together as it balances the image sizes. This solves many distortion problems. As a result, many patients report better vision comfort and fewer headaches.
We are excited to be able to partner with Caledonian Optical to be able to deliver these lenses within the UK.”
Opticians interested in finding out more about the benefits of the lens can participate in a free webinar to learn how to prescribe and fit SHAW technology in their practice. Plus Caledonian Optical are offering a new users a complimentary pair of lenses to demonstrate the benefits.
