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.
