EAST SYRACUSE, N.Y.—US Optical Laboratories and Hoya Lens of America have announced that US Optical has installed Hoya iD Lifestyle and iQ Free-Form production in their facility here.

US Optical has been digitally processing lenses in-house since 2008. Now with Hoya’s iD Lifestyle and iQ Free-Form technology, they can offer customers more options for their patients. Hoya’s iD Lifestyle and iQ series of lenses incorporate advanced mathematical algorithms during the fabrication process of the lenses, which offers enhanced visual acuity, reduced distortion and wider fields of vision, according to Hoya.

“As an independently owned lab, we feel it’s important to offer our customers a wide range of quality products,” commented owners Ralph, Robert and Ronald Cotran. “We believe in Hoya lens technology. Likewise, we are confident that our in-house processing of the Hoya iD Lifestyle and iQ series of lenses will provide the quality and quick turn-time our eyecare professionals need.”

US Optical Laboratories is the fourth largest independently owned, wholesale optical laboratory in the U.S., according to Vision Monday’s 2012 Top Labs Report. US Optical is a family owned and operated business and has been servicing the eyecare industry nationally, as well as internationally, since 2008.
