We are always on top of eye care innovation at Kodak Lens | Toronto Eyecare. We would like to introduce Specsy.
Together, we are offering bespoke​ ​3D​ ​printed​ ​eyewear designed and made specifically for you.

On October 6, 2017, Specsy has announced the launch of their technology driven 3D printed custom eyewear line. Offering custom frames that are designed in-store with augmented reality and crafted through 3D printing, Specsy is leading the way in frame innovation. On June 23, 2018, Specsy provided us with training and a retail ready app to design custom glasses tailored to the patient’s aesthetic preferences and technical requirements. The Specsy app uses augmented reality, allowing patients to design frames on a live image of their face. We use Specsy’s patent pending measurement tool to verify all dimensions of the patient’s custom frames, including bridge and temples.

“After extensive research and development, we are thrilled to be introducing cutting edge innovation and technology to the optical field” said Milan Madhavji, Specsy’s Head of Product Development.

Based out of Ontario, Specsy utilizes an in-house multi-colour 3D printer to craft their frames. By taking advantage of the most cutting edge technology available in 3D printing, Specsy frames achieve a durability level previously unattainable in 3D printing. Kodak Lens | Toronto Eyecare is offering a custom Specsy frame for $450 CAD. Click here to receive 10% off on your order. With a plastic resin frame forming their core collection, Specsy has their eyes set on offering a custom metal frame in the first quarter of 2018 and new innovative materials into the future. More information is available on their website specsy.com.

About​ ​Specsy

Based out of Toronto, Specsy was started with the belief that glasses are one of the most intimate items you share with the world. So why, in a land full of curated coffees, personalized playlists, and customizable everythings, are we still mass producing glasses? Using our expertise for 3D printing in the field of healthcare, we decided that it was time for a shift. Our goal is simple: craft 3D printed, one-of-a kind glasses that are the perfect fit for your style and shape. Specsy uses cutting edge, multi-colour, 3D printers to create a foundation. After the 8 hour printing process, the one-of-a-kind frames spend 3 days going through a multi-step finishing procedure while being assembled and inspected by hand.

MiSight 1 day lenses

Do you have myopia (nearsightedness)? In a typical eye, light focuses on the retina for a sharp and clear image. In a myopic eye, the eyeball grows too long. This means light focuses in front of the retina making distance vision blurry. As your child grows, their eyes continue to grow meaning their myopia is likely to worsen. This can have significant impact on their everyday life and possibly lead to future eye health problems.

What you should know about nearsightedness:

Myopia usually starts around 8-12 years old and continues to get progressively worse until the child stops growing. The younger a child is when they first become nearsighted, the worse their prescription is likely to become. Most children who become nearsighted at a young age are often totally reliant on glasses to see by the time they have stopped growing.

Being reliant on glasses to see well leads to greater challenges in many aspects of everyday life – especially when growing up. Later in life, nearsightedness can lead to eye heath and vision issues; the more nearsighted you are, the greater these risks become.¹ It’s really important to look at solutions to slow down the speed at which nearsightedness progresses.

Do you know the impact myopia has on the world?

More than 50% of the global population will develop myopia by 2050²

What you can do about nearsightedness (Myopia):

Catching and treating myopia early can slow its progression, reducing the severity of myopia and in turn reducing the associated risk of developing these more serious eye conditions.²,³ Our Optometrists understand the importance of keeping myopia under control. There are many current treatment options available:

  1. Multifocal Spectacles
  2. Orthokeratology (ortho-K)
  3. Soft Multifocal Contact Lenses
  4. Atropine

Slowing myopia progression can significantly reduce the risk of myopia-related complications and vision loss later in life.

  • High levels of myopia can lead to substantial vision loss due to axial elongaton³
  • Myopia significantly increases the risk of retinal detachment and myopic maculopathy³
  • Even low myopia levels are associated with an increased prevalence of glaucoma and cataracts³

Millions of children across Canada are poised to benefit from a breakthrough therapy that addresses the fast-growing issue of myopia (nearsightedness), which is projected to negatively affect more than 50 percent of the world’s population by 20502.

CooperVision MiSight® 1 day contact lenses are now available for fitting by our Eye Care Professionals. It is the world’s first one-day soft contact lens clinically proven to substantially slow the progression of myopia in children. They look and feel like ordinary one day soft contact lenses, but they have a very different optical design called ActivControl™ Technology. Our Optometrists have been trained and educated to offer this unique contact lens solution.

MiSight 1 day contact lenses were studied over three years in children as young as age eight

MiSight® 1 day has been shown to reduce myopia progression by more than half versus a single-vision one-day lens1,4. Over three years, children wearing MiSight® 1 day had 59 percent less myopia progression and 52 percent less axial elongation on average than those wearing a single-vision one-day lens1. The innovative contact lens is designed for children who have a myopia prescription from -0.25 to -6.00. Its ActivControl® Technology addresses both axial elongation and refractive error4.

MiSight 1 day contact lenses are child-friendly and fit their active lifestyles

The lens is designed for children’s ease of use and parental peace of mind. In a multi-center study, 100 percent of children who had never worn contact lenses before found MiSight® 1 day easy to remove after one month of wear4. After a single month of wear, 85 percent of children said the lenses were easy to insert4. Children were found to have not changed their daily activities, and their wearing experiences were similar to those of children wearing a single-vision lens1. Children as young as age eight and new to contact lenses reported ease of handling‡. 90% of children said they preferred wearing their MiSight 1 day contact lenses over wearing their spectacles.* ≥ 98% reported seeing well while playing outdoors.* 90% of children reported seeing well while doing schoolwork, reading, watching TV, and playing video games.‡

Children agreed that MiSight 1 day gave them clear vision at a variety of distances during everyday activites. Parents in the same study also had a highly positive response, noting their children could mostly manage their lens wear independently. Prior to dispensing contact lenses, less than half of the parents were extremely at ease with their child wearing contact lenses, but this increased significantly to 79 percent after just one month and remained high through the two-year mark4. After their children had worn MiSight® 1 day contact lenses for three years, 100 percent of parents rated their children “happy” with the overall experience1,5.

After 1 month of wear 100% of the children found the lens easy to remove and 85% of who have never worn contact lenses before find the lenses easy to insert. ‡ From one-week through three-year visits.

Dear Member,

Kodak Lens Vision Centres is pleased to partner with Northern Financial Group Wellness to offer you an exclusive eye care benefit. All members can receive the benefits below. To receive these benefits, visit or call us and let us know you’re a Northern Financial Group Wellness member when booking an eye health exam appointment or ordering new prescription eyewear.

Known for quality and superior optical technology, Kodak Lenses is a dependable brand you know and trust.

Have you wondered how your lenses are made? In general, there are two types of ways to make lenses using advanced technology.

The two types are:

  1. Pre-manufactured Lenses
  2. Custom Manufactured Lenses

Pre-manufactured Lenses

These type of lenses also commonly known as “Stock” lenses undergo a cast moulding process where plastic is injected into a mold of a single particular prescription. After the mold cools, the lens is popped out and polished. These lenses are pre-manufactured with a certain base curve, prescription and blank size. The lenses are then coated with anti-glare, anti-scratch or both, and packaged for retail. Once the lens is finished, optical or optometry retailers will offer these lenses for customers based on their visual needs.

Custom Manufactured Lenses

Digital lenses aka. Surfaced lenses are made by taking a blank piece of plastic (without any prescription in it) and grinding the prescription into the plastic. These lenses are custom made from a mold that can be manufactured with a custom base curve, prescription and blank size. Digital lenses have a more advanced manufacturing process using top of line technology to enhance quality and performance. Our digital Kodak Lenses use i-SyncTM Technology to create a single vision lens that delivers greater clarity and performance at all prescription powers. This technology allows 1/100th diopter prescription lens accuracy that provides incredibly clear vision for a truly unmatched visual experience.

Free Form lenses are a special type of digital lens that gives the absolute best possible optical quality. Free Form is a revolutionary digital manufacturing process that uses computer-aided design and surfacing to create high-level, customized eyeglass lenses with your unique prescription.

Think about the first time you saw high-definition television. Remember how it made your old analog TV picture seem pixelated and blurry? High-definition makes colours brighter, shapes sharper, and brought everything keenly into focus. Now imagine having the same experience with your eyeglasses. Sure, you can probably see fine with the ones you have, just like watching analog TV was fine, but what if you could upgrade to high-definition for your eyes? If you want to experience high-definition, try Free Form Kodak Persona HD lenses that are made specifically for your eyes and eyewear.

Advantages:

  • Great for Single Vision Prescriptions (SPH: +3.75 to -6.00 & CYL: 0.00 to -2.00)
  • Faster Turnaround Times (convenience)
  • Affordable (Least Expensive)

Disadvantages:

  • Limited prescription and blank sizes
  • Average optical quality due to increased internal stress in the lens
    • As the mold cools, different parts of the lens harden at an unequal rate creating internal stress which leads to minor visual distortions. Noticeable for certain prescriptions and eye sensitivity.
  • Does not factor in frame point of wear measurements such as OC/seg height, pantoscopic tilt, wrap angle, back vertex distance

Advantages:

  • Can create almost any prescription this way (high SPH, CYL, ADD and Prism)
  • Lack internal stress, so have better optical quality than stock lenses
  • Customized prescription with base curve and OC/seg height specification
  • Can fit any frame shape and accommodate wrap for less distortion (blank can be made in any size)

Disadvantages:

  • More expensive, as these are custom made lenses

Advantages:

  • Exceptional night/low light vision: Free-form lenses can reduce glare and halo effects caused by light sources at night, such as car headlights
  • Exceptional contrast perception: Free-form lenses can sharpen vision
  • Exceptional colour vision: Free-form lenses can maximize the optics built into your lenses, providing brighter and more intense colours
  • Can create almost any prescription this way (high SPH, CYL, ADD and Prism)
  • Lack internal stress, so have better optical quality than stock lenses
  • Customized prescription with base curve and OC/seg height specification
  • Customized prescription with eyewear point of wear measurements such as pantoscopic tilt, wrap and back vertex distance
  • Can fit any frame shape and accommodate wrap for less distortion (blank can be made in any size)

Disadvantages:

  • More expensive, as these are custom made and high definition lenses

Stock lenses are like buying a one-size-fits-all suit, a digital/surfaced lens is buying a suit in your size off-the-rack, and freeform lenses are like getting a tailor-made suit

We offer all these visual solution lenses to our customers and would like to educate you about all the different lenses available.
