HORIZONS OPTICAL products cover a wide range of technologies applied to design that allow us to offer a variety of solutions to improve users’ visual health.










ThinMax is the exclusive technology patented by HORIZONS OPTICAL for optimizing thicknesses. With this technology it is possible to make changes in the curvature of the lens which allows to overcome the limitations of FreeForm manufacture and achieve a complete optimization of the lens according to the shape of the frame chosen by the user.

With standard pre-calibration, it is only possible to obtain the optimum edge thickness in the pre-calibrated lens.

ThinMax technology achieves the optimum thicknesses at the edge of the bevelled lens.


With Binocular Balance optimization technology, there is greater control over the location and value of unwanted astigmatism of progressive lenses.

The Binocular Balance technology balances the level of astigmatism on both sides of the corridor making the amount of blur perceived by each eye is similar and the lowest that can be reached.

Studies carried out at HORIZONS OPTICAL on visual behaviour and coordination of the gaze and head provide a solid foundation for choosing the specific designs for each user.


In many cases, the user's eye doesn't perceive the required and it happens because the position of the lens on the user's face has not been taked into account.

The lenses calculated for position of use correct the difference in power between the theoretical prescription and the resulting prescription when the user is wearing the lens.

•   Greater lateral field of vision (compared to a standard PAL)
•   More comfortable
•   Immediate improvement in vision
•   Larger and easier reading area
•   Optimised vision for each position of use

ClearView is a design optimisation technology exclusive and patented by HORIZONS OPTICAL that provides optical improvements.

The ClearView technology modifies the distribution of aberrations and reducing them dramatically within the lens's useful area.


The result is that we obtain a lens that has reduced aberrations between 15% and 40%. Furthermore we obtain up to 40% more lateral field of vision in the usable area of the lens.


•   Reduction of aberrations.
•   Incomparable fields of vision.
•   Reduction of the swimming effect.
•   Maximum adaptation, in less time.
•   Maximum visual sharpness and comfort.

Lens designs with fixed height have certain limitations when adapting the lens to different types of glasses. Using designs with variable height it is possible to customize the height of the corridor according to each type of frame.

The inset is the decentering of the near zone considering the convergence of the eyes when they are looking at close objects. To get a optimum near vision it is convenient to select the inset.

User needs are changing, the use of near and near-intermediate vision is the most demanded and where the user needs to have extra comfort allowing them to perform any activity in a stable way without eyestrain appearing.

The DIGITAL PROFILE concept allows for both graduation and fitting height, both the addition and progression are located at the optimum point to offer a new visual experience up close in progressive lenses, with very wide areas of fence both horizontally and vertically.

• Greater vertical area with 100% of the addition
• Easy transition between near and far vision
• Comfortable vision whilst reading
• Better adaptation
• Ergonomic design that eliminates uncomfortable positions
