Digital Eye Lab Recognized as VSP's Unity Independent Lab of the Year


HAWTHORNE, N.Y. (May 30, 2017) – Digital Eye Lab (DEL), a division of ABB OPTICAL GROUP, has been named VSP® Optics Group's Unity Independent Lab of the Year for 2016.

DEL earned the award, which is presented annually to an independent optical laboratory that demonstrates exceptional quality of work, exceeds Unity sales targets and provides superior customer service, in its first full year as a Unity enabled laboratory. DEL first began manufacturing Unity lenses in mid-2015.

"This is an honor for the DEL team, particularly since we received this award in our first year," said DEL Managing Director Scott Pearl. "We look forward to supporting the continued growth of the Unity brand by providing world class service and quality to our IECP customers."

In recognition of the honor, VSP Optics Group donated $2,500 on behalf of DEL to the Arc of Westchester Foundation. The organization supports children, teens, and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities by providing programs to foster independence, productivity, and participation in community life. Arc of Westchester recently honored DEL with its New Business Partner Award for hiring employees through the organization and for promoting a diverse workplace.

"We are so thankful to the entire Digital Eye Lab team for their ongoing support of Arc of Westchester," said Maria Varga, Arc's Careers Supports Coordinator, who extended her gratitude on behalf of Arc for the donation during a joint VSP-DEL celebration at the lab earlier this month.

Unity Via Launch
Known as a technological pioneer throughout its 10-year history as the country's first fully automated optical lab dedicated solely to digital lens fabrication, Digital Eye Lab just recently launched fabrication of VSP's new Unity Via progressive lenses.

Unity Via's intelligent technology brings a new approach to fitting and delivers precise vision correction with exceptional ergonomic comfort. Crafted with the most sophisticated lens design software in the optical industry, Unity Via is easy to fit and offers patients a truly customized lens. Rather than forcing the eye to adjust to the lens, the new lens designs follow the natural path of the eye for a comfortable fit. With a few simple measurements, eye care professionals can be confident that whatever their patients' visual needs are, Unity Via will provide them with accurate and effortless vision. The portfolio includes five new progressive lens options in the F, N, and O categories, including designs for frames with high-wrap, and for patients who use mobile devices for more than four hours per day.

"We understand the importance of investing in innovative technology and the impact it has on our customers and their business," said Nan Meehan, Vice President of Eyewear for ABB OPTICAL GROUP. "As the Unity brand evolves, we are confident that a growing number of IECP customers will recognize the benefit of providing Unity's high performance customized digital lens solutions to their patients."

Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, Digital Eye Lab is a division of ABB OPTICAL GROUP dedicated to producing eyewear that is truly personalized to patients' needs and lifestyles. Founded in 2007 as the first fully automated optical lab dedicated to digital lens fabrication in the United States, DEL prides itself on utilizing the most advanced technologies to deliver innovative products, extraordinary service and the fastest turn-around times in the industry. The independent optical lab has been named one of Vision Monday's Top 20 Labs every year since 2013.
