What this means for YOU as a Nikon customer…

Nikon lenses are handcrafted, made one at a time in order that to fit YOU comfortably.  If you choose advanced Nikon prescription lenses, it will take a few days to get your glasses made, because the lenses are custom-made with an optical design created just for YOU.

From the moment they’re ordered to the time you receive them, Nikon prescription eyeglass lenses go through a process that’s ensures they provide YOU with the sharpest, most comfortable vision. Here’s how it works:

  1. You send your eye correction needs; your unique parameters to your Nikon creator. This includes your lens refractive power and information about other parameters to help customise your lenses just for YOU. (We call to discus these if you are unable to provide the information with your order)
  2. Once your order is received and all information gathered the Nikon Optical Design Engine (aka optimisation calculator) takes all your personal data into account and calculates an optical surface for YOUR eyes only.
  3. This information then means high-precision digital tools go to work, surfacing and polishing your lens to fit your exact personal parameters. 
For the most frequent correction needs, such as simple myopia, lenses can also be cast in high-precision aspheric molds.
  4. The lens is then coated, tinted or treated in vacuum chambers according to the various options that you have selected (of which there are many) It’s checked to ensure conformity to the highest Nikon quality standards.
