"We feel that our recent agreement is an exciting change for both companies and for low vision practitioners," says Ken Bradley, President of Eschenbach Optik of America. He adds, "Eschenbach Optik of America brings its expertise in marketing and distribution of high-quality low vision products to the relationship and Unilens brings its expertise in the design and manufacture of high quality optics. Together, the two companies will have more impact on the market and more value to deliver to low vision practitioners and consumers."

The UniVision(R) Low Vision Lens is a 22mm acrylic lens that can be quickly and easily adhered to the surface of any eyewear. It provides the low vision practitioner with the ability to turn any eyewear into a high-quality, prescription-corrected microscopic solution for their visually impaired patient in a matter of minutes. In addition, the simple application process for the UniVision(R) Low Vision Lens allows the candidate to try the lens on their eyewear in the position desired before permanent adhesion and purchase. The UniVision(R) system offers lenses from +8.00D to +40.00D and they can be removed to allow for repositioning or for attachment to a different pair of carrier eyewear. A new UniVision(R) diagnostic system, created through a collaboration between Eschenbach and Unilens, will be introduced to the market beginning October 1.
