“Essilor Canada is convinced that everyone needs and should have access to blue light protection.” Outdoors, these lenses have a mirror finish and provide intelligent visual comfort and hassle-free protection from UV and harmful blue light. Indoors the mirror fades to a light reflection with a hint of colour. “They are ideal for those who are especially sensitive to light, as they are extra dark outdoors to protect from even the darkest sun and they darken behind the windshield of the car,” says Tremblay-Dawson. Kodak Unique DRO and Kodak Unique DRO HD progressive lenses with Dynamic Reading Optimization are now available in Canada. Centennial Optical and Riverside Opticalab have teamed up to produce these digitally customized progressive lenses. DRO - Dynamic Reading Optimization, improves the overall optical perfor- mance of the lens while significantly reducing oblique astigmatic errors in the reading area. Kodak Unique DRO lenses allow greater precision and wider clear fields of view, while the Kodak Unique DRO HD progressive lenses take customization to the next level, using position-of-wear measure- ments to highly customize the lens to the individual patient’s viewing needs. The DRO technology greatly reduces off-axis viewing, allowing the eyes to comfortably focus in the reading area for longer periods of time.
