VSP Optics Launches New Single-Vision Lens for Digital Eye Strain Relief

Unity Relieve Rated Superior to Eyezen in Wearer Trials


RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., November 14, 2018 – VSP Optics has launched Unity Relieve, an innovative solution to help single-vision patients combat digital eye strain.

Unity Relieve provides visual comfort for single-vision patients who use digital devices for two or more hours a day. The unique design offers unrestricted distance vision and a slight power boost in the bottom of the lens to help alleviate symptoms like dry eyes, headaches, blurred vision, etc., often caused by viewing screens, tablets, and smart phones. Unity Relieve lenses are automatically paired with TechShield Blue, a next-generation anti-reflective coating that reduces blue light exposure.

In wearer trials, Unity Relieve rated superior to Eyezen for relief of visual fatigue symptoms. In fact, Unity Relieve was rated higher than Eyezen 4 to 1 among patients with symptoms of digital eye strain.

“With the immersion of technology in our everyday lives, exposure to digital devices is much more universal. Unity Relieve uses advanced technology to help single-vision wearers reduce the impact of those devices on their eyes,” said Randy Dannewitz, senior vice president of strategic development for VSP Optics. “Unity Relieve was designed using extensive testing and the latest technology to develop an innovative product unlike anything currently available. The result is a lens designed to meet individual patient needs, with the fit and feel of a single-vision lens.”

There are two Unity Relieve designs available, based on the severity of patient symptoms.

  • Unity Relieve 50 is recommended for mild-to-moderate digital eye strain symptoms
  • Unity Relieve 70 is recommended for more severe digital eye strain symptoms

Unity Relieve is now available for order in CR-39, Polycarbonate, Trivex, 1.60 High-Index, 1.67 High-Index, and 1.74 High-Index. Visit www.unitylenses.com for additional information.
