B U Y E R ' S G U I D E 86 E y e c a r e B u s i n e s s . c o m October 2016 { S P E C TAC L E L E N S E S } Handy Reference… en Español Tambien Transitions Optical, Inc., has released two new Family of Brands product reference cards that eyecare professionals can use as a reference tool when discussing which Transitions lens is right for a patient. ECPs can choose an English card, which also includes answers to commonly asked questions, or a bilingual English/Spanish card that is helpful for effectively communicating with Spanish-speaking patients. Each reference card features information on the three Transitions everyday lens options and provides details on color availability and key product benefits. They are free to ECPs. I N F O: 800-848-1506, mymulticulturaltoolkit.com, transitionspro.com/pos TRANSITIONS OPTICAL, INC. / reference cards { E Q U I PM E N T } FastCoater Open for Orders Super Optical International is opening presales for its FastCoater, a tabletop hard-coating machine designed with the independent ECP in mind. FastCoater is an affordable coating machine with on-the-block technology that complements the company's FastGrind all-in-one lens surfacing unit. The hard coat, Total Shield, has scored well in independent testing for adhesion and thickness of the coating, as well as quality coating coverage, SuperOptical reports. With a small footprint of only 22"W x 27"H x 22"D, FastCoater utilizes the same three-stage process as larger hard-coating machines. In total, the process takes less than three minutes per lens. A signal notifies the user when one process is finished and the lens is ready to be moved to the next stage. I N F O: 513- 321-2456, superoptical.com { S P E C TAC L E L E N S E S } Finished Blue Light Optima (a division of PFO Global) has released its Vitaris blue light protective lenses in a finished single-vision option. The fin- ished Vitaris lenses are available in 1.60 and 1.74 indices, with 1.67 launching in late 2016. They feature a premium AR treatment and complement the existing line of semi-finished Vitaris products—identity uncut free-form PAL, free-form SV upgrade, and SFSV. The blue-light-blocking technology is in the lens material, not in the coating, and offers wearers clear protection without any color absorption, the company reports. Vitaris 1.60 and 1.74 finished lenses are available in wide power ranges. I N F O: 866-996-7849, pfoglobal.com PFO GLOBAL / Vitaris FSV SUPER OPTICAL INTERNATIONAL / FastCoater
