Indoor MD - For indoors with balanced Mid-distance -

These are intermediate-distance custom-made lenses for inside with balance that makes it possible to see from the view close at hand to a little further out in the mid-distance

Indoor MD basic design<Back-surface progressive + Back-surface Aspheric Design>

Natural vision with little sensation of swaying or distortion / Expansive, bright, clear field of vision

Indoor MD features

It is possible to make a comparison the field of view in the tab.
  • Field of view of daily use progressive lenses

    Comparison of depths

  • Achiving a wide field of vision with depth at the same time as ensuring a near-distance field of vision

    Comparison of depths

  • A field of vision in which it is possible to see from the view close at hand to the mid distance

    Comparison of depths

  • A field of vision that takes into account maximum ease when using personal computers

    Comparison of depths

  • Field of view of the single vision lens

<Aspheric Adjustments according to Dioptric Power>
for comfortable vision for any power

Previous lens

With ordinary progressive lenses, a common semi-finished blank(※) is used at each base curve division, resulting in differences in optical performance.

Semi-finished lens material with shaping on one side completed, leaving the other side to be processed when an order is placed.

Back-surface progressive + Back-surface Aspheric design

Back-surface progressive + Back-surface Aspheric design

Indoor MD provides a wider field of vision and comfortable fit to customers needing all kinds of power with no difference in optical performance caused by power.

<Flexible Inset Adjustment>
for a wide near-distance field of vision that factors in line of vision movement

51 options for inset of near zone are available in 0.1mm steps

<Curve Pairing system>
for attractive pair lens appearance and outstanding optical performance

Significant differences in the powers of the right and left lenses produce differences in the base curves, adversely affecting appearance.
In cases where there is a significant difference between the base curves, the curves of Indoor MD are automatically matched to adjust the appearance at the same time as realizing outstanding optical performance.

When curves are matched

<Flexible Prism Thinning>for optimum pair lens thickness

Flexible Prism Thinning is carried out to achieve greater thinness and lightness of edged lenses to frame shapes.
The prism volume of Indoor MD is set by each additional power with the balance between appearance and optical performance. The prismatic volume of the left and right lenses are automatically matched.
In this case, the prismatic volume is matched to the smaller value.

Flexible Prism Thinning effect

<Advanced Aspheric Design>There is a reduction of blur caused by astigmatism

Advanced Aspheric Design

Clearer astigmatic field of vision.
Optimum aspheric correction is achieved using elements such as power, close work distance, base curve and the lens tilt angle in line with "Listing's Law" that determines the orientation of the eyeball when the field of vision shifts in upward, downward, left, right and diagonal directions.
Astigmatic field of vision wider by approximately 25%*

Lens appearance

Thin, lightweight and comfortable to wear

  • Previous lens
  • 1.60 lens
  • 1.67 lens

This is an image of S-6.00. SEIKO's previous lens used 1.50 monomer.

The numerical value that indicates the ability of the lens material to refract light is called the "refractive index" and the higher this index, the thinner the lens. Indoor MD features a lineup of 2 types of material: Ultra-high 1.74 refractive index material and 1.60 material. In addition, back surface aspheric design is used to achieve a thin lens. The synergy between material and design enables a lens that is thinner and lighter than previous lenses.
