    You can now order using a HEIGHT. This is ideal for those wanting UNCUTS, challenging frame shape or those wanting to take it.

    Like many of you folks, I am very skeptical of anything new in this business. We have all heard and read all of the marketing jargon and corporate word salad promotions of new lens designs. I have followed this lens design with interest for about a year now, but had about zero interest in trying one. This thread and JerGuinnip's offer to try a pair got me really curious and eager to try a pair.

    I have had my pair for about a week. I have not worn them much because most of my days at work and home are spent in near variable focus style progressive lenses.

    ***I was concerned about them as soon as I read the job ticket and saw the compensated rx. YIKES! I figured that there was no way these are going to work***

    My first impression was........WOW! No swim! I mean really......NO SWIM!

    Second impression------the "intermediate zone" is wide! Very nice!

    Third impression--------reading is sorta weird. The "reading zone" seems pinched. Not bad, but noticeable. Think inverted triangle nd you are trying to read out of the upside down pinnacle of the triangle.

    Overall impression---------I like the lens a lot and can see this as a valuable tool in my optical toolbox! I think a lot of my patients would benefit from this design as well.

    Final thought---------The design reminds me a bit of the Seiko Surmount because of the W-I-D-E "intermediate zone" and it's barrel shape design.

    I want to thank all that participated in this thread and especially to Jeremy and the crew at Quest for offering us an evaluation pair to "See for ourselves"!
    I want to thank you for being open to trying this new lens and sharing your thoughts on it. I completely understand the hesitation because so much of what is out there these days is all marketing hype which is why we insist on putting lenses on faces. One thing that may help a little bit with the the reading zone is adding a little panto. I am really happy to hear your overall positive experience. Also we do have a computer version of the lens that is meant for about 2.5ft but the regular NAL can be customized for any distance you are looking for, so for example we could also do one that will give you vision to about 10-12ft. It also has the ability to do an antifatigue lens as the add power can be put as low a 0.10. You can cover almost anything with just the one lens. Thank you again for being open to trying it and if there is anything else you need please let me know.

    Quest Specialty Lab in Largo FL was the first to offer it and specializes in difficult prescriptions like high power, high prism, Franklin segs, sectoral prisms, prism segs, pilot lenses, dive masks, swim goggles, optical telescope inserts, ptosis crutch and glass lenses. Essentially you name it we do it. Since there is a patent to the NAL there are a number of independent labs across the US who have been licensed to make it. They may not always use the Omnilux name though because they are given the option for them to market under their own name. For example POG (Precision Optical Group) in Iowa sells it as Omnilux as does Best Price Digital in Pensacola FL, MJ Optical in Nebraska and Collier Optical in North Carolina. There are other labs Iike Doctors Optical in Las Vegas that have their own marketing name or Eye-Kraft in Minnesota who call it the DLS-EZC. That is just to name a few and there are more being setup everday but if you need a complete list send me an email (Jeremy.G@QuestOpticallab.com) and I will get you that information. Your other option may be to ask for the Natural Accommodation Lens at your current lab. Since it is a free form digital lens design we can license it to any lab you may currently use so you can always request them to reach out to me and we can get them in touch with the correct sales person. Since the Lens Design Software is cloud based we do not have to go on premises to setup like every other lens design software out there. Which means in some cases, depending on their lab management software, it can be setup for them to run in a few hours.

    NOW Available with Mesured Height!!!

    The Omnilux NOW has a custom design, where a HEIGHT CAN BE MEASURED. This is for those that want to order UNCUTS, have a different frame shape or just ant to measure it. The MINIMUM height is 19mm.

    If you want to try a pair, reach me at kevinw@eyevoc.com.

    There is no way for me to give that because the Attitude Sport is a progressive design but the NAL (Omnilux) is new multifocal concept that has a utility patent. Any of the progressives out there that have patents have design patents but they are all based off the original Bernard Maitenaz utility patent which are essentially no line trifocals. Since this has a continuous curve that mathematically calculates the amount accommodation needed at every distance from 20ft to 1ft along a 22mm backbone there is nothing like it out there.

    I received my sample pair yesterday. After wearing them all afternoon and now this morning I am already impressed. The flow from my distance Rx to the reading is pretty well seamless, I will say there seems to be just a little bit of adaptation (maybe not the best word, just getting used to), but about the same as putting on a pair of Eyezen + lenses for the first time or a change to a new Rx. Driving I had full clear visibility of my dash and odometer, looking at the road felt just as natural as when I used to wear single vison glasses! These feel very natural to my eyes, sitting at the computer I can already tell I am not straining as hard to read continuously and am hoping to see less eye fatigue at the end of the day. If you are iffy still I say give them a try, I am extremely intrigued by this lens and honestly very impressed. Thank you Jeremy and Quest Labs for the opportunity to try these first hand!
