Nikon is harnessing camera lens technology to upgrade progressive lenses in its eyewear, improving contrast and giving wearers clearer vision. 

Nikon began making spectacle lenses in 1946, when it launched the Pointal Lens, and in 1983 it introduced the first anti-glare coating with built-in scratch resistance. An immediate success in Japan, nearly 100% of lenses in the country now use this resilient coating.
