HORIZONS OPTICAL products cover a wide range of technologies applied to design that allow us to offer a variety of solutions to improve patients’ 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 overcome the limitations of FreeForm manufacturing and achieve a complete optimization of the lens according to the measurements and shape of the frame chosen by the patient.

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 beveled 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 as similar and the lowest that can be reached.

To ensure a great visual comfort it is essential to guarantee optimum user ergonomics when looking at objects. ErgoPath technology provides the ideal corridor that offers optimum ergonomic position to each user.  


In many cases, the user's eye doesn't perceive the required correction and this 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
•   Optimized vision for each position of use

ClearView is a design optimization 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 swim 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.

Since many years almost everyone uses hand held devices, there is not just a percentage of the population, the use of these devices is nowadays generic.

Digital Profile optimizes the lens progression modifying not just the corridor length, but also the corridor configuration and design, to offer comfort and sharp vision for using digital devices.

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