The GP Wide lens was HOYA’s original
breakthrough in expanding the reading zone.

Progressive lens wearers often focus their
complaints on the width of their reading and
intermediate zones, especially if they have
higher prescriptions. The GP Wide was
designed specifically for those who spend a
lot of time reading or working at arm’s
length, expanding the intermediate and
reading zones of the lenses.
Transmission Based Design simulates vision
to project how clearly images will appear
through every point on the lens.
Horizontal Asymmetry is also incorporated to
balance the clear areas of the lens,
improving peripheral vision and minimizing
the sensation of “swim” often associated
with older progressive designs.
Combining these technologies broadens the
intermediate and near zones, and reduces the
size and intensity of the blur zones at the
edges of most progressive lenses.
