Nikon Presents Two New Products

Nikon Optical Canada launches the Nikon Lite DAS, the first lens of its kind inCanada. This digital double aspheric single vision lens delivers an ultra-thin design and improved optical performance, using Nikon Digital Surfacing™ technology.

The Nikon Lite DAS is the thinnest lens available, with thickness reduced by up to 14% compared to a conventional lens. Furthermore, the double aspheric design controls the aberrations generated towards the periphery of the lens, achieving a natural and clear vision.

The ultimate in thin sophistication, Nikon Lite DAS is available in indices 1.60, 1.67 and 1.74, stock and surfaced from total sphere +10.00D to -12.00D, cylinder -4.00D. The lens is available in Nikon coating SeeCoat Plus and, for surfaced lenses only, in SeeCoat Blue, ICE and HCC coatings.

Nikon has also developed a new generation of their Online lenses, the Online Wide. The latest design for extended near distance with superior optical quality for up-close materials and digital device-related tasks.

As compared to the conventional Online design, Nikon Online Wide now offers an improved visual experience by utilizing state-of-the-art Nikon Digital Surfacing technology, offering a new degression option of 2.5D and is available in index 1.74. Online Wide greatly reduces peripheral distortion by 40%, and at the same time increases the clear near vision zone by 35%, for a sharper and wider vision for up-close materials such as a newspaper or a large computer screen.

Online Wide is ideal for anyone who works at arm’s length (i.e. electricians, plumbers, etc.), often reads up-close materials, works with computers for long hours, uses large computer screens, experiences eye fatigue from desk work, needs a more comfortable posture at the computer, wants unrestricted reading vision, an upgrade from reading glasses or an additional pair to complement their progressive lenses.

Online Wide is available with all degressions in indices 1.50, 1.60, 1.67 and 1.74, from total sphere +7.00D to -8.00D, cylinder -6.00D. The lens is available with Nikon coatings SeeCoat Blue, SeeCoat Plus, ICE and HCC.
