Carl Zeiss is presenting a new system technology at the OLA fair in Indianapolis this month that allows opticians to handle numerous laboratory tasks in-house, including coating. The German company is also gearing up to unveil a 1.74-index version of its Gradal Short I multi-parameter progressive lens technology at the Opti-München fair next January. A photochromic version will follow soon as well. Its laboratories in the UK and the USA are being upgraded to provide various types of Gradal lenses for the local markets.
