As the first company in the history of the optical industry, Vivior has
used data gathered by test persons to calculate an optical design for
progressive spectacle lenses (also called Progressive Addition Lenses or
PALs). This design was then used to manufacture the spectacle lenses
which are currently being tested. Vivior’s new PALs are calculated and
produced through an objective measurement of the real-life visual
behavior and not based on statistics or studies.

Mario Stark, CEO at Vivior, explains: “This test shows that it is
possible to use objective data about individual visual behavior to
customize the vision correction solution. It opens new opportunities and
new business models for Vivior.”

Paul Soye, PhD, MBA, member of the Board of Directors at Vivior and
former Global Head R&D of Alcon Cataract Surgery, adds: “We are thrilled
to offer anybody seeking vision correction the option to receive a truly
individual, customized solution. Everybody has a unique viewing
lifestyle, therefore needs unique vision correction.”
