NIKON OPTICAL LENSES AND COATINGS

Nikon lenses designed  for computer vision syndrome and blue light toxicity and overall optical performance are just one example than Nikon venture beond their famous camera lens.
Just as your favourite nikon digital slr has its cameras accessories so can advanced spectacle lenses have coatings as accessories.
Just as mirrorless cameras have evolved  so have spectacle lenses and coatings such as the nikon blue blocking lenses for computer vision syndrome.
Computers,smart phones etc  employ Light Emitting Diode (LED) backlight because it is brighter .
But due to user proximity and prolonged staring without blinking , the more intense the light exposure, the higher the risk of possible damage.
When staring at a computer monitor for long periods of time, align yourself so that your eyes are at the same level as the top of your monitor. You should be able to look down slightly at the screen and wear prescribed lenses for the right focus and filter.

• Follow the 20-20-20 rule. Stand up from your desk every 20 minutes, look into the distance for 20 seconds and blink 20 times is recommended.

Our visual environment has evolved rapidly in the past decade-75% of us regularly engaged in multi-tasking across multiple screens and devices.
The  huge rise in myopia (short-sightedness)  is also due to  lack of time spent outside .
Approximately 65% of digital users experience physical discomfort as a result of spending two or more hours in front of a digital screen^.

NIKON lenswear is famous for optical quality. Nikon have a large portfolio of spectacle lens designs. Just as not all lenses are the same from prior to the early DSLR ( digital single lens reflex) to those in the latest nikon DSLR camera bag nor are spectacle lenses which have to be compared to be appreciated.

Nikon Blue Blocking lenses and multicoats for digital eye strain

Variation in macular pigment means that some people have more susceptibility to  blue light and Macula Degeneration. People with more sunlight exposure are  more at risk of AMD especially from the blue end of the spectrum. This dose of blue light, as with UV radiation, is cumulative over our life-time. Blue light protection may be even more important after cataract surgery as the lens can block some short-wavelength blue light as well — the type of blue light most likely to cause damage to the retina and lead to macular degeneration and vision loss. ​Such as the SLR camera and DSLR camera has evolved with coatings so have spectacle lenses. The advanced digital camera of today has technology employed in modern spectacle lens coatings and designs. So depending upon how much blue light protection the IOL provides  you might benefit from eyeglasses that have lenses with a special blue light filter — especially if you spend long hours in front of a computer screen or using other digital devices.

Multifocal anti fatigue lenses

nikon neo

Home&Office Neo’s design has been improved thanks to Nikon Optical Design Engine (NODE) optimisation. As a result, wearers can benefit  from 11 % less  aberrations,  48% wider  intermediate  vision  and 41 % wider  near vision  compared to the original design.

 Just as a nikon dslr  employs the best designs and protective anti reflective coatings to its camera body nikon coatings can be employed on spectacle lenses.

Multifocal anti fatigue lenses can be employed for the relief of symptoms of visual fatigue brought on by long periods of close work specifically on hand-held or portable digital devices.

 For different accommodation /  binocular vision issues and  occupational needs we can tailor different lens solutions  eg Near = computer + mobile phone; Mid = computer + desk;Room = computer + around the office.

The H & O Neo standard is the same as the original H & O using 25% of the add in front of the pupil. The Long and the Wide are as the names implies:

  • Long has only 15% of the add in front of the pupil so giving a much longer focus at pupil height
  • Wide is 40% of the add in front of the pupil so the depth of field is less but the wearer should have a nice wide field for that distance.

The Soltes wide Neo is designed to spread the the change across 19mm of the surface and place half of the shift directly in front of the pupil usually for computer use,but can suit other occupational uses, particularly when there is a demand for intermediate vision for objects above eye-level.

 

Of the Soltes Neo it is type 1 and 2 that are most commonly prescribed and of the Home and office Neo it is the standard (25% of the add) that is the most widely used followed by the  Long (15% of the add.)
The specific design chosen will depend upon an individuals prescription and needs.
The effective power changes take place over:
  • Nikon Soltes 19mm  
  • Nikon Home & Office  22mm 
  • Varilux  Digitime by comparison is more compressed  over 12mm from near to intermediate / working distance power (for direct comparison with Soltes and Home and Office) and 24 mm including  the Ultra near power (+0.50D  for the Near and +0.25D for the Mid version +0.12D for the Room version) 
Nikon Spectacle lenses have the sophistcated technology made famous by Nikon albeit with camera lenses such as 
ED VR Nikon in-lens technologywhich improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. 
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “travelling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics.



Home & Office 15%, 25% or 40% of the addition at the pupil height (Long,Standard,Wide) where power reduces above the pupil and increases below spreading the change across 22mm of the lens surface.

The main differences between the Home and Office Neo and the original Home and Office are:
