Digital Ray-Path 2: An Evolution in Freeform Design
Oblique aberrations, found in any lens, include astigmatic and spherical power errors. These errors create an out-of-focus image vision as the wearer’s gaze moves away from the optical center of the lens. Eliminating them completely is not mathematically possible. Some residual power error remains, causing a slight blur.
Power of Accommodation
Accommodation is the wearer’s natural ability to focus on different distances, without moving their eyes or head, by stimulating or relaxing the lens within the eye. IOT Digital Ray-Path 2 incorporates this factor into each individual lens calculation. IOT Digital Ray-Path 2 also considers the accommodative object space, the volume defined by the points within the clear visual range, for each direction of gaze.
An Evolution in Freeform
IOT Digital Ray-Path 2 pushes the limits of geometry in lens personalization by incorporating the wearer’s accommodative capacity in the final lens calculation to further minimize oblique aberrations.

Digital Ray-Path 2: How It Works
IOT Digital Ray-Path 2 calculates a unique back surface design for each lens with three-step optimization process.
1. The eye-lens system
First, it creates a simulation of the complete system that includes eye movement and considers all available information on the wearer, frame, and lens blank.
2. Accommodative object space
Next, it incorporates the wearer’s natural ability to accommodate including the accommodative object space, the visual range associated with each direction of gaze.
3. Minimization of oblique aberrations
Finally, it analyzes and minimizes oblique aberrations at various distances and for each direction of gaze over the entire accommodative object space.
The result: extremely clear vision and precise focus.

Digital Ray Path 2 Features
Enhanced by a complete set of individualization parameters that take into consideration the unique attributes of the frame and the preferences of the wearer.
Calculated point by point to ensure wearers perceive the proper power when looking through their lenses at every distance and direction of gaze.
wearer’s accommodative ability into the traditional calculations. Oblique aberrations are minimized more effectively than ever before.
The perceived power distribution remains stable, regardless of the prescription or base curve. This is especially beneficial for high prescriptions and large or wrapped frames.
Integrity Freeform Lens Technologies
Basic is the entry-level technology to make digital lenses. Progressive lenses made with this technology will have the progressive surface on the back of the lens, and a simple curve, typically a sphere, on the front side. The progressive surface is calculated using IOT's Steady Methodology providing improved performance over conventional progressive lenses, with the accuracy and flexibility of the digital freeform process.
The most advanced technology to make digital lenses. Advanced-level technology uses both IOT's Digital Ray-Path® 2 and Steady Methodology to take into account the real measured or default wearer position of the lens and the natural movements of the human eye. The result of this innovative calculation method is a progressive lens that is personalized and provides better vision in all zones of the lens.
Camber Technology combines the Advanced technology with the unique, continuously changing surface of the specially designed lens blank allows expanded reading zones with improved peripheral vision. When combined with a back surface design using IOT's Digital Ray-Path® 2 and IOT's Steady+ Methodology, both surfaces work together to accommodate an expanded power range, offer better cosmetics for many prescriptions, and yield user-preferred near vision performance.
