HOYA Vision Care Launches New GT 7000 Frame Tracer

Shaping the future with greater speed and accuracy


BANGKOK – 14th September 2023 – HOYA Vision Care, a leader in optical technological innovation, has introduced the GT 7000 Frame Tracer, designed to bring high accuracy and greater productivity to the frame tracing process. Linked to HOYA’s leading cut-and-edge technology, the GT 7000 allows users to trace frames with high accuracy, saving time and cost.  


Fully integrated into the HOYA order system, the GT 7000 Tracer connects to individual practice management systems, allowing Eye Care Professionals to align orders with their production schedule and process. This benefits both patients and business owners, as the ability to produce consistently high-quality eyewear in a reliable lead time is an important step in developing long-term patient satisfaction.  


With a variable stylus that adapts to the curvature of the frame, the GT 7000 provides precise measurement for more accurate production. The optimised balance between soft contact and precision measuring ensures that soft frames can be accurately traced as well. This boosts productivity while optimizing businesses’ operating costs. 


“HOYA Vision Care believes the GT 7000 Tracer will be an excellent complement to our customers’ technical skills.  This further demonstrates our commitment to providing cutting-edge technologies to help Eye Care Professionals achieve overall business success,” said Griff Altmann, Chief Technology Officer, HOYA Vision Care.   


The automatic 3D binocular tracing allows the GT 7000 to trace frames in 20 seconds or less, reducing workload while increasing the quality and accuracy of frames, and favorably contributes to professionalism and reliability. The tracer also has built-in storage for safe-keeping additional accessories, as well as a one-touch demo lens holder with a magnet mechanism.
