Technical information and glazing instructions

Glazing instructions for SuperAR TopCoat treatment

TopCoat SuperHydrophobic coating comes together with a blue adherent layer which permits the glazing of the lens without the need of special adhesive foils. The adherent layer ensures the sticking of the standard glazing foils to the lens and fix them firmly when polishing.

After glazing, wet and clean the lens with a microfiber cloth or a paper tissue to remove the blue adherent layer. The lens regains the original aspect given by the SuperAR anti-reflection layer - green shade.

For glazing of lenses which have TopCoat SuperHydrophobic treatment please follow these steps:

  • Don't clean the lenses before glazing. The blue layer offers adherence for fixing the lens. It is necessary to avoid water contact before blocking the lenses.
  • The blocking of the lens is done with normal cups, directly on the blue layer. Check if the lenses are well blocked to avoid detaching of the cup before polishing.
  • After polishing, the cutted lenses will be passed through a water jet, and the adherent blue layer will be cleaned with a smooth paper tissue. The lens regains it's original aspect given by the SuperAR coating, green shade.

Glazing instructions for 1.6 and 1.67 hi-index material lenses

Organic material lenses, 1.6 and 1.67 index, are more sensitive to high temperatures than 1.5 index organic material lenses.

When glazing in celluloid frames an increased attention is required, lens exposure to heat sources deteriorates their surface (the organic material lens will extend more than anti-reflection layer, which is a metallic layer, resulting in "crimpling"  the anti-reflection coating).

We recommend not to heat the frame with the lenses applied, in order to avoid any problem, the most frequent case is met for adjustments following the glazing of the lenses.

In order to avoid this situation, the frame has to be adjusted before the glazing of the lenses.

Glazing instructions for Office degressive lenses

The measuring is done following these steps:

  1. The frame is put on the client head in wearing position
  2. Measure the pupillary distance for reading for each eye
  3. Mark the position of the inferior eyelid on the frame demolens

Important to remember: Your eyes have to be at the same height with client's eyes so to avoid measuring errors. Position yourself central (not left or right) in front of the client so your sight is perpendicular on the frame.

      4.   The glazing of the Office degressive lenses into the frame is done taking into account the pupillary distance for near. Use the vertical line for centering. The lens is glazed so the horizontal line to correspond with the inferior eyelid previously measured.

Glazing instructions for Excelit Progressives 

The minimum frame height has to be 33 mm for L variant, 29 mm for XS variant. The progressive lenses have to be centered taking into account the pupillary distance for each eye, so the visual zones to be ideally used at all distances.

The measuring is done following these steps:
  1. The frame is put on the client head in the wearing position
  2. The measuring is done in a normal, relaxed position of the head and body, looking straight and horizontal
  3. The center of the pupil is marked on the frame demolens, this point is the centering point. For near it is not necessary to do any other measurement.
Important to remember: Your eyes have to be at the same height with client's eyes so to avoid measuring errors. 
Position yourself central (not left or right) in front of the client so your sight is perpendicular on the frame.

      4.   The glazing of the Excelit progressives in the frame is done taking into account the centering point and the pupillary distance for each eye. The lenses are glazed so the center of the glazing cross to overlappe over the centering point on thedemolens of the frame. Remember that Excelit progressives do not have predecentration.
