Your Vision is our main goal

We develop products that can satisfy your needs and improve quality of life

All we see is the result of the light reflected from the objects, passing through the pupils, guided, processed and projected onto the surface of the retina. The retina is able to perceive shapes and colors and to give precise and accurate information of the space that surrounds us. All the information gathered by the retina is then processed by the brain.

We can define the brain as the true organ of vision

he light that is reflected from an object crosses the conjunctiva and the cornea passes through the anterior chamber and pupil. Arriving at the lens, it is "collected" and then reaches the retina which, once the information is processed, transfers it to the optic nerve, which then transfers it to the brain which interprets and forms the image that we finally see.

An eye without visual defects focuses on the retina objects at various distances thanks to the accommodation, the elasticity of the lens.

Accommodation is always in action when objects are not perfectly focused then blurred on the retina.

Common eye disorders

Contact Lenses

effectively correct visual defects

Contact lenses are medical devices that nowadays are able to correct refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.

When worn they adhere to the anterior segment via the tear film layer. With each blink, the lens has a small movement that allows the tear to deliver oxygen and lubrication to the underlying cornea.

Soft contact lenses, are the most used, and are made of flexible polymers, silicones or other similar materials ensuring good wettability, passage of oxygen and general comfort. They adapt to the shape of the anterior segment and maintain their placement, therefore are optimal for sports and active social life.

The recommended replacement schedule of this Medical Device can vary from one day to a month. Shorter replacement intervals increase safety, hygiene and comfort.

Rigid contact lenses are often indicated for complex visual disorders, irregular corneas and re-shaping of the cornea. The materials, the dimensions of the lenses and the geometries may vary according to the corrective purpose and the needs of use.

Contact lenses are a safe and comfortable alternative to prescription glasses

Contact lenses do not fog up, do not collect moisture and are ideal for outdoor activities

They guarantee a better peripheral vision, a better perception of distances and a real size of objects

Contact lenses can be of soft or rigid material, of various sizes, with different methods of use


After the age of 40, vision begins to change. Besides the presence of other visual defects, one begins to have problems in close activities, such as reading the newspaper, a book, using smartphones or digital devices in general.
Presbyopia is a completely natural condition.

The lens begins to lose elasticity, flexibility, reducing the accommodative capacity, and as a consequence there is more difficulty in passing focus from afar to closer objects.
Presbyopia can be compensated for with "reading" glasses or prescription glasses that may compensate to the presence of presbyopia in association with other ametropias.

In recent years, the combination of new geometries with soft or gas permeable materials already used for the correction of ametropias such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism has made it possible to compensate very well both initial presbyopia and consolidated presbyopia. Also when in combination with visual defects already present or appeared with the advent of presbyopia.

Digital Eye Strain

Light discomfort, headache, eye fatigue when reading, tearing and dry eye are some of the symptoms related to digital visual stress, or fatigue caused by prolonged use of digital screens.

Some jobs require periodic eye check-ups (e.g. video terminals users), but too many people, partucularly youngsters, stare at digital devices such as screens of tablets and smartphones for many hours a day at close range without any sort of control nor professional advice.

Important tips
  • Ambient light should be similar to that of the digital screen, avoiding the light coming only from the screens
  • The reading distance of the computer monitor should be equal to that of your arm, keep the mobile phone about 60 cm from your face
  • ake breaks, look away from the screen and look into the distance at about 20 meters for 20 seconds every 20 minutes (20-20-20 Rule)
  • Place the screen at eye level or slightly lower while maintaining proper posture
  • Remember to close your eyelids (blink) regularly as staring at the screen reduces blinking considerably
  • Use only glasses or contact lenses indicated by eye care professionals, as glasses or a contact lens with the wrong dioptric power increase visual fatigue
  • The use of suitable tear substitutes, such as eye drops, helps to constantly lubricate the ocular surface

    Development & Well-being

    Contact lenses accompany us for a long part of our day and our life, as a natural consequence of this we think that, from now on, these devices must have a double role, that of correcting visual defects, but also that of being a vehicle for beneficial substances that can be released directly on the tear film:


    In the last decade many researchers and many scientific publications have directed their attention to better understand which mechanisms influence the normal physiological development of the eyeball. A physiologically normal bulb reduces the causes of the onset of ametropias and tends to remain effective and healthy.

    A new approach foresees that a soft contact lens, with unique characteristics, can be the vehicle and union between the optical and biological functions, using the same approach that is used in the world ofsupplements, by acting on the natural metabolic cycles, in order to favor them.

    Lachryceuticals (amino acids, vitamins, polysaccharides, etc.) are inserted inside the matrix of the contact lens during the manufacturing process and then, thanks to the patented controlled release, delivered from the contact lens guaranteeing the bioavailability of these substances to the eye for the entire wearing period.
