Evolving with the customer: Yuniku, a leader in 3D-tailored eyewear
When Hoya Vision Care, a key player in the global market for ophthalmic lenses, launched Yuniku in 2016, a revolutionary platform was born. It’s the world’s first 3D tailored eyewear designed entirely around the wearer’s vision. Customization, sustainability, comfort and self-care are at the center of Yuniku’s journey of progress. It’s a system that evolves with the customer’s needs.
“See tomorrow. Today.
The future of eyewear is here.”
Yuniku uses a revolutionary vision-centric approach. It begins by assessing the wearer’s visual needs and facial features using 3D scanner technology. Advanced software calculates the ideal position of the lenses in relation to the eyes, then designs the frame based on those unique parameters. 3D printing allows to further tailor the frame. The result is ultimate vision and comfort for the wearer.
AN EVOLVING EYEWEAR PLATFORM
The successful partnership with Materialise, a leading provider of 3D printing software and services, and several collaborations with innovative eyewear brand designers are key elements to Yuniku’s success. Since the beginning, the company has been constantly evolving to enhance the experience during the optical consultation process. They came up with an exclusive selection of frame designs, colors and finishes, complemented by a choice of a premium progressive, single vision and digital lens designs, for optical and sunglasses solutions. Five different pioneers in eyewear design are now part of the platform. They include the in-house brands Yuniku base and UNITi, the Belgian Hoet Design studio, Danish eyewear brand Ørgreen, and most recently, Meyer Eyewear from Germany. Unique eyewear styles, a selection of design languages and different product features make Yuniku an ambassador of high-performance comfort.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY – 70% LESS WASTE
With their tailored eyewear, Yuniku generates up to 70% less waste than traditional frame producers. In fact, this means that just the materials actually required for the frames are needed. Powerful selective laser sintering creates each Yuniku frame with over 600 layers – completely waste-free. Yuniku appeals to the power to go green without having to compromise on design or fit. Yuniku represents the future of eyewear, and the future is climate conscious.
HYGIENIC, CONTACT-FREE FITTINGS
COVID-19 has not only changed our daily life but also shaped our future. As safety has become our number one priority, contact-free fitting systems have become indispensable. And here’s how: The Yuniku face scanner system empowers customers to virtually try on frames. During the consultation process, the customer can explore the frames virtually on the screen. With just a few clicks, he can generate a complete eyewear solution entirely without human contact.
