Polarized lenses are finally available in high index materials for high prescription patients.
With the release of NuPolar in 1.74 from Younger Optics, eyecare professionals can now offer ultra-thin polarized sun lenses to high plus and high minus prescription patients.
Previously high prescription patients either had to choose heavy and thick polarized lenses, or forgo polarized lenses completely.
The benefit to wearers of the newly released NuPolar in 1.74 is lighter polarized eyewear for greater comfort and improved aesthetics with lenses looking more attractive in the frame.
NuPolar 1.74 polarization characteristics are the same as all NuPolar products: excellent heat stability, superb adhesion characteristics virtually eliminating the possibility of delamination, consistent true curve control, high polarization efficiency, and unrivalled colour uniformity.
The lenses are manufactured MR-174 resin, a high-performance material with good processing and stability characteristics. NuPolar 1.74 – in Grey and Brown – is offered in four base curves with precise film placement to allow for minimum thickness over a very wide Rx range
(-13.00 D to +9.00 D). NuPolar 1.74 semi-finished single vision lenses can be processed digitally or with traditional processing equipment.
