Eyezen™ Start benefits

A new generation of single vision...

Regular single vision lenses only consider the prescription in far vision meaning the lens is only optimised through the optical centre. The wearer’s prescription is not maintained when looking at close distance creating power error and unwanted astigmatism in near vision. Wearers may not identify this loss of acuity, but their eyes are working harder and this can cause eye fatigue(1)

For the first time in our single vision lenses a new parameter is taken into account in the lens calculation: the object's distance according to the gaze direction.

The technology

Eyezen Dualoptim improves acuity in near vision

Eyezen Dualoptim™ Technology

Eyezen™ Start is the only single vision lens taking into account 2 reference points: Distance and near vision. The whole lens surface is optimised according to object distance and gaze direction, bringing the right power throughout the lens.

Blue-violet and UV light protection with Eye Protect System


Eye Protect System protects eyes by absorbing UV and selected blue-violet light into the material of the lens.



Enhanced blue-violet protection with Crizal Prevencia


When combined with Eye Protect System, Crizal Prevencia offers additional protection by cutting even more harmful blue-violet light.
