Course Title: “Camber Technology – The Next Generation of Digital Progressive Lenses”
Presenter:  Barb Malobabich
Camber lenses were recently developed to address some of the design and fabrication challenges that have arisen in the age of back-side digital progressive lenses created on a spherical front curve lens.  
Camber Technology combines complex curves on both surfaces of the lens to provide excellent vision correction. The unique, continuously changing surface curvature on the front surface allows expanded reading zones with improved peripheral vision.  When combined with a sophisticated back surface digital design, both surfaces work together to accommodate an expanded Rx range, offer better cosmetics (flatter) and yield user-preferred near vision performance.
10:15 – 11:15 am
