Through an agreement with Opulens S.A., a leader in the development and production of ophthalmic lenses, Coburn now offers the Novar Freeform Designer on an exclusive basis in the U.S. and Canada, as well as a non-exclusive basis in the rest of the world.
“We are excited to offer Novar Freeform Designer in our product portfolio,” said Alex Incera, president of Coburn Technologies. “We have been exploring and testing various lens design systems for several years, and found that the Novar Freeform Designer is a perfect fit for labs wanting to offer a premium quality, private labelled digital designs or offer lower cost, non-branded lenses. With the advanced technology of the Novar Freeform Designer, laboratories are able to compete on an equal footing with the biggest and best lens companies in the world.”

The software can be implemented on a broad variety of laboratory management systems and surfacing platforms, including Coburn’s Cobalt System, as well as that of other major equipment manufacturers.
Advantages of the Novar Freeform Designer include:
• Continuum Design Technology, a novel and proprietary approach developed by Opulens, which allows the modelling of a continuous optical surface without resorting to interpolation and with an infinite amount of control points for wider visual fields, higher levels of comfortability, and a greater degree of personalized ophthalmic lenses tailored to each users requirements.

Even occupational designs, such as Office, depending on the customer’s preference.
