The Vision Council announced on April 6 the publication of ANSIZ80.1-2020, a new set of recommendations by the American National Standards Institute’s for prescription and plano lenses, contact lenses, ophthalmic instruments and ocular medical devices. The new recommendations, which serve as reference for the eyewear and optical industry, update and replace the previous standards established in 2015.
