SA Introduces KODAK Unique DRO™ Progressive Lens

Carlsbad, CA (April 2018)

Signet Armorlite, Inc. (SA) is excited to announce the addition of Kodak Unique DRO™ Progressive Lens to the Kodak Lens Professional Series.

With the increasing use of digital devices, it has become important to have a lens that supports prolonged, comfortable use of the reading area. Kodak Unique DRO Progressive Lens is specifically designed to provide incredible vision at all distances while optimizing the reading zone to support prolonged viewing of mobile devices.

Kodak Unique DRO Progressive Lens builds upon the outstanding features and benefits of Kodak Unique Lens including a full backside progressive lens design, Vision First Design™, i-Sync™, 6 corridor lengths and availability in 60+ materials. And to accommodate the increased use of the reading area for mobile devices, Kodak Unique DRO Lens introduces Dynamic Reading Optimization™ (DRO). This new technology improves the overall optical performance of the lens while significantly reducing oblique astigmatic errors in the reading area. When compared to the Kodak Unique Lens, Kodak Unique DRO Lens increases the effective reading area an average of 17% and decreases total oblique astigmatic errors in the reading zone an average of 54%. Kodak Unique DRO Progressive Lens allows the eyes to comfortably focus in the reading area for longer periods of time.

Kodak Unique DRO HD Progressive Lens is also available. The ‘HD’ stands for ‘High-Definition’ and includes measurements to adapt the lens to the individual patient’s viewing needs. Depending on frame style and wearing habits along with prescription and viewing distances, Kodak Unique DRO HD Lens can dramatically improve the patient’s viewing experience.
