What do neuroscience and optics have in common?
Looking triggers stimuli in certain parts of the brain, creating specific reactions.
Tokai decided to develop a progressive lens that takes these neurological stimuli into account.
Thanks to the results of special neurological monitoring, Tokai was able to adjust the design of a progressive lens, which is perceived as pleasant by the brain of the wearer, thus creating a smoother adaptation to the lens.
Result: the Tokai Resonas.
The aberration zones of this progressive lens with Back Surface design have been pushed to the far regions of near and far vision, resulting into a smoother transition of the power.
Moreover, a softer design is obtained through power compensation.
A new flexible inset design makes accurate use of both individual eye characteristics and viewing distance, improving binocular near vision from 25 to 80 cm.
