Rochester has upgraded the lenses' AR to its Blue AR, which blocks high- energy visible blue light. This coating minimizes digital eye strain and may reduce the risk of early-onset macular degeneration. Blue AR is also anti-glare, anti-scratch, and anti-smudge. In addition, Rochester Optical has designed a Smart GOLD prescription lens insert for Microsoft's HoloLens, breakthrough wearable tech that allows users to interact with high-def holograms. The Rx insert will also allow users who need vision correction to enjoy the product. I N F O: 800-820-6616, rochesteroptical.com ROCHESTER OPTICAL / Smart GOLD lenses COOPERVISION / Avaira Vitality
