It’s for patients with low vision or high prescriptions.

DALLAS – Eyecare professionals with patients who have complex prescriptions that cannot be corrected with ordinary lenses have a new option.

Essilor’s Specialty Lens Lab offers custom-made designs for patients with low vision or high prescriptions. Specialty Lenses are suitable for patients with complex refractive errors including high sphere power, high cylinder power, special parameters, extreme powers and extreme prisms and strong ametropia. They also help address vision challenges for people with lazy eye, cataracts and other rare eye conditions.

“It’s our commitment to ensure everyone who needs better vision has access to it through Essilor of America” said Rick Gadd, incoming president of Essilor of America. “Our Lab Network can now, for the first time ever, help people who need power ranges -100.00 D to +90.00 D see the world around them. It’s just one more way our Lab Network delivers on our mission of improving lives by improving sight”.

The expanded range of Essilor Specialty Lenses is available now through Custom Eyes Lab of Sauk Rapids, MN. ECPs can call their Essilor lab to place their specialty lens order, and a lab customer service representative can determine if the customized lens requires additional measurements. Specialty Lenses are available in a variety of materials and power ranges from -40.00 D to +50.00 D depending on the material, and SL Lab can accommodate from -100.00 D to +90.00 D working through its sister lab in France.
