Shaw Vision® is the world leader and largest supplier of iseikonic and isophoric prescription eyeglass lens technology. Shaw Technology is available in single vision, bifocal and progressive addition lens designs. Shaw Vision utilizes wavefront digital ray path technologies to provide not only clear vision in all gaze directions but also maintains coordinated eye movements through the elimination of static and dynamic aniseikonia. Shaw Vision’s founder and chief scientist, Dr. Peter Shaw, (optometrist and adjunct research professor at the University of Waterloo, Canada) received patents for the technology in 2013.
Aniseikonia is an eye condition that is defined by an inequality of images perceived in the brain and causes a loss of binocular vision. It’s chief cause is from the use of ordinary prescription eyeglasses for the correction of anisometropia. Anisometropia is a common ocular condition wherein the prescription for each eye is of a different numerical value. Studies indicate that anisometropia affects about one in five individuals and is the leading cause of problems associated with eyeglass wear. Problems associated with aniseikonia include non-adaptation to glasses, headaches, dizziness, poor reading, suppression and loss of depth perception.
SHAW Vision Technology is the gold standard in treating refractive amblyopia the leading cause of blindness in North American children. SHAW Vision technology is the preferred eyeglass therapy for individuals with prescription changes due to refractive surgery such as LASIK® or cataract surgery with intra-ocular lenses.
