Hoya Corporation has announced a partnership with Jacques Denis, which claims to be the biggest independent lens fitting laboratory in France and in all of Europe, specializing in rimless frames, with more than 15,000 optional shapes in its system for the optician to choose from. Opticians can place orders for any of Hoya's organic lenses to be edged and drilled in Jacques Denis' lab through its dedicated Maestro Lab software, which they can download free of charge. The order is automatically transferred to Hoya and Jacques Denis. Hoya produces the lenses and sends them to JD for edging and drilling. Once they are processed, the lenses are then sent directly to the optician in a Hoya-branded package. The new service, called PERL for “precise edging for rimless lenses,“ costs €15 per pair, ensuring maximum drilling quality and saving time for the optician that he or she can dedicate to sales. The service is limited for the moment to the French market, but Jacques Denis is planning to extend it later on to other European countries, where it already has some clients.
