SunRx blue lenses are available in 4.00, 6.25 and 8.50 base curves.

“Consumers want more color options so they can personalize their look while still protecting their eyes from the sun’s harmful rays,” said Jeff McCurrach, vice president product management at VISION EASE. “Our new blue SunRx lenses respond to this demand for fresh color options in polarized lenses.”

The full SunRx SFSV line also includes gray, brown and classic green colors in a variety of base curves. All SunRx lenses feature 100 percent protection from UV rays while eliminating 99 percent of all reflected glare. For more information, visit





Multi-FLEX – powerful polisher for high volume lens production

Satisloh’s automated Multi-FLEX soft tool polisher only uses a single tool for all standard processes, eliminating process steps and complexity.  The tool features a lifetime of up to 14.000 sec. The standard tool covers working ranges of 0-14 diopters and 55-85 mm diameters (optionally up to 18 dpt.; 48-90 mm diam.).  With three independently-controlled polishing chambers, three lenses can be polished simultaneously, regardless of geometric or material differences. Because every polishing chamber has two tool spindles, customers can choose how to utilize them:  for a second polishing step or for doubling the time between tool exchanges (when using both tool receptions for the standard process). The Multi-FLEX represents true innovation in terms of throughput, costs and versatility. For more information visit
