Hoya Vision Care Launches Latest Light Reactive Technology in the Photochromic Category
LEWISVILLE, TEXAS, (July 30, 2020) Ophthalmic lens technology leader and ALLY of the ECP, HOYA Vision Care, announced today the launch of Sensity Fast light reactive lenses.
“The number one complaint people have about light reactive lenses is the time they take to fade back to clear,” said Eduardo Martins, President for HOYA Vision Care, North America. He continued, “We listened to what patients have been saying and developed technology to solve this problem and eliminate a barrier. It should now be much easier for ECPs to successfully offer light reactive lenses to their patients.”
Sensity Fast is one of the fastest light reactive lenses, rapidly changing from dark to clear, eliminating that awkward in-between period that most other lenses have. Patients will enjoy a seamless experience moving from outdoors to indoors.
As the Ally of the eye care provider, we designed this new product to provide ECP’s with differentiating new technology.
- Sensity Fast1 has 47% faster fadeback from dark to clear than the leading competitor and 77% faster fadeback than original Sensity.
- Sensity Fast2 lenses are clearer indoors AND more than 1.6 times clearer than the leading competitor after 1 minute of fadeback AND more than 2.5 times clearer than original Sensity after 1 minute of fadeback
“As practices are recovering from the lack of revenue over the last several months, differentiating new technology is a great way to re-engage patients,” Martins continued, “By offering a product with a technology advantage they can command a higher price and maximize vision plan reimbursements.”
