Single Vision lenses for a Digital Lifestyle
Relaxing your customer’s eyes in a digital world
Many people spend an average of 8-10 hours a day looking at digital screens.1 This can cause digital eye strain, also known as computer vision syndrome. Symptoms can present themselves in only two hours2 and may include irritated eyes, blurred vision and headaches.
Offer your customers the relaxing power of Hoya’s third-generation enhanced single vision lenses which are specifically designed to relieve digital eye strain. This is ideal for your customers aged between 13 and 45 who spend two or more hours a day focusing on digital screens. It is also beneficial to people focused on near sighted tasks.
Sync III lenses have the distance power for everyday use and a ‘boost zone’ at the bottom of the lens, optimized for the way your patients use their eyes today. The boost zone has a slightly increased power, which helps the eye muscles to relax and focus more easily, enhancing visual comfort during prolonged screen time.

In a recent study**, the severity of eye strain symptoms was reduced with 84% for those people wearing a Hoya accommodative support lens such as Sync III.
One of the best things to do is to offer your patients solutions such as the Sync III lens
