Nikon Improves and Expands

Today’s digital screens are usually equipped with power light sources such as Light Emitting Diodes (LED). Long exposure to this light can increase eye strain. To address this problem, Nikon now offers SeeCoat Blue, an alternative coating specifically designed to cut blue light by 10 per cent. SeeCoat Blue improves contrast and reduces screen brightness, flickering and eye fatigue, offering a stress-free visual experience.

SeeCoat Blue transmits 97.5 per cent of light, which equates to that of a standard AR coating.

All other features of SeeCoat Plus are maintained, so that in addition to cutting blue light SeeCoat Blue provides scratch resistant, anti-static, anti-reflective and smudge resistant properties. 

SeeCoat Blue is available on all Nikon Rx single vision, Nikon Relaxsee, Nikon Online and on all Nikon premium progressives (SeeMax Power AP, Presio Power and Balance Digital). 

Furthermore, in response to the ever-increasing demand for high base frames, Nikon introduces bases 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 on Balance Digital 12. Fitting the wrong lens curve in a given frame creates warpage and distortion. These new base options now allow the transfer of a given prescription to a different base curve to match the frame’s profile.

Balance Digital 12 1.60 is now available in bases 4 and 7 for its polarized version from total sphere -6.00D to +7.00D, cylinder -6.00 up to an addition of +3.50D, as well as, in bases 3, 5 and 6, for its clear and Transitions® versions from total sphere -8.00D to +5.00D, cylinder -4.00 up to an addition of +4.00D. 

Balance Digital is available with its renowned Nikon coatings SeeCoat Plus, HCC ICE and HCC in addition to SeeCoat Blue.

Balance Digital is offered in 10-mm, 12-mm and 14-mm corridor lengths in a choice of index 1.50, 1.60, 1.67 and 1.74, in both clear and Transitions, with polarized 1.60 available in corridors 12-mm and 14-mm.
