Official Eyezen Partner

Our way of life has changed…

Lifestyles have changed a lot in the last decade for wearers aged 18 to 50 years old. Our eyes have to focus more intensively and repeatedly to adjust to close and variable distances with frequent switching between devices and increasingly smaller characters displayed by screens.

This new way of life has an impact on our visual needs, which Eyezen is addressing. Eyezen Boost lenses support visual efforts in front of digital screens, thanks to an exclusive power distribution technology called Eyezen Focus.

If you are like an increasing number of people experiencing asthenopia symptoms, (fatigue, pain around eyes, blurred vision, headache), especially following prolonged reading, computer work or close activities, why not call down to discuss your suitability.
