TECHNOLOGY > INNOVATION
Innovation has been a constant at HORIZONS OPTICAL since the company started. Great advances in terms of innovation are the result of the work carried out by our R&D department, under the discipline of Design Thinking.
HISTORY OF INNOVATION
I + D
Lens Design is the team that, since FreeForm was first created, has enabled the launch in the market of such groundbreaking designs, based on visual strategy or on ThinMax advanced design technology.
The patient's experience integrates the perspective in the entire process, for the design and evaluation of a product, system or service. The integration includes both emotional aspects of the patient (predisposition, expectations, needs, motivations...) and characteristics of the system designed (complexity, usability, functionality...) and the context in which the interaction occurs.
Lens treatments are dedicated to the research and development of coatings for ophthalmic lenses that provide advantages such as hydrophobicity, lipophobicity, scratch resistance, anti-reflective treatments or protective filters (HORIZONS OPTICAL patented) of infrared or blue light.
PROTOTYPES & METROLOGY
Prototypes and Metrology focuses on the search for new production processes and technologies; it seeks to maximize the level of accuracy in metrology applied to lenses. In this sense, our team is responsible for all developments relating to FreeForm technology and associated measuring to ensure the quality of products on all machines that produce FreeForm.
