More about Double (Bi) Aspheric thin lenses: Designed to be thinner and flatter than traditional plastic lenses whilst optimised both cosmetically and optically with vision being almost distortion free right up to the lens edge. These Freeform lenses provide exceptional clarity in a wider field of natural vision enhancing both wearer comfort and optical performance. Single vision wearers can now benefit from the same technical advantages of digitised lens plotting.

  •  

Bi Aspheric lenses are up to 10% thinner than a normal aspheric lens of equivalent power & index.

Super flat Freeform Double Aspheric Tokai 1.76 high index plastic lens + £249

The ultimate thin lens and currently the thinnest plastic lens material on the market. Individually crafted to your prescription, these lenses are manufactured with aspheric front and rear surfaces to enhance optical performance and to flatten both the front and rear surface of the lens to reduce lens thickness. Supplied with our super duper 4 in 1 coating as standard, these ultra thin lenses are excellent for prescriptions above +/- 6.00 Sph where you wish to have the thinnest and lightest plastic lenses available manufactured by the worlds leading thin lens manufacturer - Tokai.

Super flat Freeform Double Aspheric Bespoke Tokai 1.76 high index plastic varifocal £345

This is the thinnest most advanced varifocal lens available. Our bespoke freeform varifocal is crafted individually to suit your prescription with the advantage of back surface technology; the most advanced varifocal design currently available. Manufactured with aspheric front and rear surfaces, this enhances optical performance and allows both the front and rear surface of the lens to be flattened to reduce lens thickness.This ultra thin lens also has its varifocal shape machined into the rear surface of the lens, providing a much wider viewing angle. You will benefit from a wider field of vision with enhanced visual acuity and optical performance. Supplied with our super duper 4 in 1 coating as standard, these ultra thin lenses are excellent for prescriptions above +/- 6.00 Sph where you wish to have thethinnest and lightest plastic lenses availablemanufactured by the worlds leading thin lens manufacturer - Tokai.


1.8 Index Glass Thin Lens - New £353.50 (Varifocal Only)

Only available in varifocal for highest +/- prescriptions. This is the thinnest material for a varifocal, however it is around 2 times heavier than both the 1.67 lens and the 1.74 lens index in plastic. Unless you have a minus prescription of between 15 and 20, we would always recommend that you have a 1.76 index lens instead due to the weight disadvantage. This lens can only be applied with an anti-reflective coating as an additional extra.

1.9 Index Glass Thin Lens - New £343 (Single Vision Only)

The thinnest lens material available for very high prescriptions. Should really only be used on the highest type of  prescriptions, for example +10 or -17 sphere as the weight disadvantage makes it impractical on lower prescriptions where 1.74 thin lens or 1.76 thin lens plastic would be more suitable. This lens can only be applied with an anti-reflective coating as an additional extra.
