Seiko's patented design is the first to use a
perfect sphere on the front surface of the lens.
Conventional progressive lens designs place or
split the power between the front and back
surfaces. This elegantly simple, but complex
step eliminates the magnification factors that
cause virtually all of the swim and sway
distortion found in conventional progressive
addition lenses. Wearers experience stable,
smooth vision throughout the lens, with no
|At the basic level of internal
design technology, Succeed lenses are highly
advanced. This design customizes aspheric
compensation in the progressive channel based on
the patient's complete Rx. The result is a much
wider viewing areas throughout the lens.
Seiko Succeed has a soft design that is enjoyed
by first time wearers. It is recommended for
people with active lifestyles and for
prescriptions with low to medium add powers.
Advanced software guides the machines used to
create a free-form lens. Seiko software

account the entire prescription--sphere,
cylinder, axis, add power and prism--and creates
a "three-dimensional" map which is then
processed onto the back surface of the lens.
One advantage of this design is that the

wearers are amazed by the clear and stable
vision and experienced wearers appreciate the
extra-wide visual fields--near, far and
