Approximately 8 percent of men have a congenital color vision deficiency (“CVD”), while 0.5 percent of women are affected. Although CVD patients may comprise a smaller percentage of your practice’s appointments, their needs should not be overlooked.
Patients with CVD have historically only had a few lens options available to assist with color perception. R&D Optical is proud to offer the newest technology in color lenses, Chemistrie Color, which provide our eyecare professional customers a convenient and cutting-edge solution for patients with CVD.
What Is Chemistrie Color?
Chemistrie Color lenses are patented, specially designed lens filters. These CVD lenses differ from old technology which used surface tinted lens products that relied on heavy red or pink-tints. By selectively filtering portions of the visible spectrum, Chemistrie Color creates a color separation which allows CVD patients to discern additional shades and hues. Chemistrie Color is available in three lens types or strengths:
Each lens is designed for red-green CVD (deutan or protan). The lenses feature an anti-reflective coating on the backside of the lens to reduce unwanted glare.
For added versatility, Chemistrie Color is available as a custom clip-on, ready-to-wear glasses with plano lenses, and as plano uncut lenses that can be edged to fit into any frame on your frame board.
The custom clip-on option utilizes the patented Chemistrie Magnetic Lens Layering system, which allows the wearer to attach a clip on via micro magnets embedded in their prescription lenses. The Chemistrie Color clip is extremely lightweight and uses ultra-thin polycarbonate lenses to maximize comfort.
These custom clips are designed to fit 99 percent of frames. Chemistrie Clips are customized to match the base curve of the patient’s prescription lenses, ensuring the optimal fit. A variety of magnet and titanium bridge color options are available for an extra layer of customization.
The Chemistrie Color ready-to-wear line is available in three fashionable sunglass frames and is available in Indoor, Outdoor Moderate, and Outdoor Severe polycarbonate lenses.
Plano Uncut Lenses
Provide your patients with more flexibility by offering Chemistrie Color in a frame of their choosing. Uncut lenses have a 73 mm diameter and a 1.5 mm thickness which fit nearly any frame. The lenses are available in 4 and 6 base curves. Let your patient choose any frame from your board, and we can easily transform them into a CVD product.
