How EnRoute lenses enhance the driving experience

As time changes and we spend more time behind the wheel, our eyes are taking the strain. HOYA EnRoute lenses are designed specifically for motorists, minimizing stress and providing a more relaxed driving experience.


For patients who spend prolonged periods behind the wheel of their car, EnRoute single vision and progressive lenses for driving can offer the visual support they need.


EnRoute progressive lens incorporates our renowned technologies: Integrated Double Surface Design for more expansive visual fields and fast switching between distances. Balanced View Control gives stable image perception in dynamic driving situations.


A high-performing driving solution

The big question is: “If a patient's vision has been corrected to the optimum level with spectacles, what else could we do to make the driving experience more comfortable?"


Driving conditions have become more demanding. But how many people spend more time behind a car wheel? 9.7% of commuters in Canada experienced extreme commutes, defined by having a one-way commute greater than or equal to 60 minutes.


With these driving challenges, an eye product inevitably had to be designed to aid in more comfortable driving.


EnRoute technologies

If you have a car, you're driving daily. Driving has become an essential everyday activity. To minimize eye strain, HOYA developed lenses specifically for motorists.


Developed to meet the visual demands of today’s drivers, EnRoute lenses are equipped with a specially designed Glare Filter. This filter significantly reduces light scatter, significantly reducing light scatter and distracting glare from the dashboard, streetlights, and LED and Xenon headlights of oncoming traffic. At the same time, it enhances the transmittance of necessary light, improving contrast and brightness perception, even in poor light and bad weather. The result is more comfortable, relaxed vision even in stressful driving situations. The anti-reflection treatment is scratch resistant and easy to clean with water and dirt-repelling properties.


With EnRoute, patients benefit from:

  • Reduced glare and reflections from oncoming traffic and streetlights
  • Better contrast and brightness experience while driving in low light conditions
  • Clear vision in the far distance, the dashboard and in mirrors
  • Easy switching between distances
  • Relaxed and comfortable driving

The EnRoute Pro: Progressive Lens

The Progressive products in the EnRoute Pro range are customized to be driving-specific. The lens is distance and dashboard biased with an overall balanced design. If patients feel increased visual fatigue and stress from driving, the EnRoute Pro Progressive primarily focuses on the visual demands of driving for extended periods of time.


For the real road warriors

For long-haul drivers drivers, Hoya has developed EnRoute Pro. It offers all the benefits of EnRoute and adds:


  • A contrast-enhancing filter for improved contrast and color perception, and even better glare reduction
  • A lens design that is further optimized for the viewing distance to the dashboard and mirrors, and includes optional tailoring to the individual wearing conditions, for a natural, relaxed driving posture


The EnRoute Pro

The EnRoute Pro has all the features of the Hoya EnRoute product but with the added benefit of a specially developed contrast-enhancing filter. This extra filter improves contrast in low-light conditions such as fog and bad weather driving.


The EnRoute Pro was originally developed for professional drivers (bus drivers, semi-trailer truck drivers, taxi drivers, emergency service drivers, and delivery drivers). However, the extra filter is beneficial to anyone who has issues with light sensitivity. The contrast-enhancing filter appears as a brown/yellow tint to an absorption level of 10-12%.

  • A dedicated solution to cater to the specific needs of your patients
  • High performing driving solution available in single vision and progressive designs.
