Hoya's Gizmo Simulates Sight with New Lenses--Before Purchase
Hoya has introduced its Vision Simulator, which enables wearers to experience their new lenses before they buy them, right in the store. Using wearers' actual prescription, the device provides an accurate, 3D vision experience, visualising the optical effects of the various lens designs and treatments. It is controlled by an application downloaded onto a smartphone that is
placed into the headset. Wearers look through the headset and see a
virtual environment. Opticians apply the wearing parameters and exact
prescription (every prescription type and cylinder is accommodated) and
adjust for accurate pupil distance. A tablet serves as a remote control.
Opticians decide what wearers see and experience, and can demonstrate
and explain the different options available. Read more.
