Eye care patients often own two pairs of prescription glasses: clear glasses and sunglasses. This allows them to adapt to the environment throughout their day without sacrificing the quality of their eyesight. However, many patients who go from their progressive clear lenses to their progressive sun lenses experience an imbalance.
We’ve heard it before: “My reading isn’t as good in my sunglasses as my clear glasses.” The reason? Every progressive lens is unique. And up until now, there hasn’t been a very efficient solution for this niche problem. That’s why HOYA has taken the iD LifeStyle® 3 progressive lens design a step further — now offering it in polarized.
Your patients who utilize iD LifeStyle® 3 lenses in their clear glasses can now get that same exact design for their sunglasses. Let’s talk more about why and how we combined these two powerful forces, iD LifeStyle® 3 + polarization.
The benefits of iD LifeStyle® 3 lenses going polarized
With the new announcement that iD LifeStyle® 3 is now available in polarized lenses, you can offer HOYA’s premium progressive technologies to your patients in their clear glasses as well as their sunglasses.
Maintaining progressive design consistency allows for a more comfortable adjustment when switching between glasses. Your patients will be able to take advantage of our:
- Integrated Design (iD) and Dual-sided optics for premium optical clarity
- Binocular Harmonization Technology (BHT) for superior reading comfort
- Personalization to choose the best design option to match their lifestyle
iD LifeStyle® 3 offers three unique design options: Indoor (near vision focus), Urban (equal focus on all main vision areas), and Outdoor (primary focus on distance). With this progressive lens, patients experience a clear, relaxed vision for all distances, but why add polarization?
The importance of polarized lenses
Polarized lenses improve vision by virtually eliminating glare and reducing eye strain.
- Safer driving
- Less eye fatigue or eye strain
- 100% UV protection
- Fewer headaches from squinting
- Better visibility (especially during sports)
