The new Eyezen DualOptim Kids technology takes into account two reference points to optimise the surface of the lens for all children’s gaze directions (not only for the optical centre), while maintaining their prescription to give them better quality vision through a larger area of the lens.
Eyezen Kids has been designed around three main parameters to provide a lens that is truly optimised for children. These parameters are:
Their facial morphology
A child’s facial anatomy should not be considered to be a shrunken down version of an adults’. Due to the difference in parameters such as their nose shape (smaller and closer to the eyes), Essilor R&D discovered that when fitted to a child, the lens fitting measurements will very often show a different vertex distance, pantoscopic angle, and wrap angle. A growing child is also typically shorter than an adult, giving them a lower point of view. This means that children will tend to look through the upper part of the lens to see the same thing as their parents.
Further to this, a child’s working distance is typically noticeably closer to that of an adult. These two points combined with how children move their eyes while looking through a spectacle lens mean that Eyezen Kids lenses provide exceptional quality vision for children through their design. The lens provides much improved areas of clear vision compared to a traditional single vision lens, allowing children to use the lens more naturally and comfortably.
