    Reading Time: 2 minutes

    ZURICH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In a test, Vivior determined individual visual habits using the
    Vivior Visual Behavior Monitor and, based on this objective data,
    provided customized vision correction lenses to each of the test

    As the first company in the history of the optical industry, Vivior has
    used data gathered by test persons to calculate an optical design for
    progressive spectacle lenses (also called Progressive Addition Lenses or
    PALs). This design was then used to manufacture the spectacle lenses
    which are currently being tested. Vivior’s new PALs are calculated and
    produced through an objective measurement of the real-life visual
    behavior and not based on statistics or studies.

    Mario Stark, CEO at Vivior, explains: “This test shows that it is
    possible to use objective data about individual visual behavior to
    customize the vision correction solution. It opens new opportunities and
    new business models for Vivior.”

    Paul Soye, PhD, MBA, member of the Board of Directors at Vivior and
    former Global Head R&D of Alcon Cataract Surgery, adds: “We are thrilled
    to offer anybody seeking vision correction the option to receive a truly
    individual, customized solution. Everybody has a unique viewing
    lifestyle, therefore needs unique vision correction.”
