Human eyes have much more potential than we think

Whether you’re new to glasses or have worn them for years you’ve probably come across the term glasses prescription. Your prescription is the result of your eye examination and allows your optician to dispense the right lenses to correct your vision.

Eyesight and corrective lenses are measured in dioptres, a unit of power. For decades eyes have been measured to a quarter of a dioptre(D), you may have seen your lens prescription ends with .25D, .50D .75D or just .00D. This abides to the current correction standards, but it limits the precision corrective lenses can deliver and fundamentally it can limit your experiences as your eyes can perceive a much higher precision(1). It's like wearing a suit or dress that is your size category but it doesn't quite fit to your exact measurements.

AN OPTICAL BREAKTHROUGH

After five years of scientific research and analysing more than 100,000 vision parameters(2), we have developed a breakthrough in high precision vision: AVA™, Advanced Vision Accuracy™.

Advanced Vision Accuracy technology for better sight

Thanks to a new highly accurate and simpler way of testing your vision, our partner opticians can now measure your eyes to 0.01D, and with AVA™ technology we can develop your lenses specifically to your exact prescription. No matter what your lens prescription; +2.21D, -5.32D or -11.11D, your new glasses can be made to 0.01 dioptres instead of being rounded up or down. Our latest research shows that 95%(1) of people have more sensitive vision than the current correction steps of 0.25 dioptres.

HUMAN EYES HAVE MUCH MORE POTENTIAL THAN WE THINK

You don't put up with the clarity of standard definition on your television, so why would you with your lenses? With the most refined correction and lenses your eyes can for instance identify 200 shades of blue(3).

See the world as it’s meant to be seen with no restrictions from your lenses. Every detail will be captured thanks to AVA™ technology, available with a range of Varilux varifocals and Eyezen single vision lenses.
