Production tool

SwissLens has numerical lathe with nano-metrical precision specifically designed to manufacture contact lenses made to measure, and in particular for the toric lenses stabilized with bumps. These lathes enable the production of lenses with precision and quality never reached before. This tool, as well as the driving softwares, were developed by SwissLens, in collaboration with EPFL (Ecole polytechnique de Lausanne) and various high technology Swiss companies. Since it is protected by various patents the company benefits from its exclusive exploitation.

Made to measure

The SwissLens lenses can correct the usual spherical type ametropia (myopia, hypermetropia), astigmatism, presbyopia and all the combinations of those. The Classic range offers an unlimited choice for parameters and materials, as well as the possibility to modify the geometry of the lens in order to adapt to all cases.

Ecology and quality

The nanotechnology makes it possible moreover to be freed from the operations of polishing, therefore increasing reproducibility and optical quality of the lenses while reducing the use of chemicals to a strict minimum.

Materials

We collaborate with the main raw material suppliers: Contamac , Vista Optics, Boston (B&L), Paragon Vision Science. Each lens can be created in the most adequate material. Of course, we always watch and follow the evolution of new materials.

Working conditions

Manufacture, control and conditioning are carried out in buildings specifically designed for the production of contact lenses:  gray room at controlled temperature and hygroscopy.

Traceability and reproductability

Every SwissLens lens has its own serial number, which guarantees a follow-up and a perfect reproducibility. The appropriate information for every lens is at the adapter disposal.
