Lens Quality is Important in Glasses

Based on our history of optical lens production, Hakim Optical considers lens quality as the most important factor in overall eyeglass quality. In addition to providing in-house lenses, Hakim Optical also proudly provides brand name prescription lenses from Zeiss (considered as the Mercedes Benz of lenses) from Germany and Nikon (considered as the Lexus of lenses) from Japan.

Since its inception as a business in 1846, Zeiss has transformed into a large, research-oriented optical enterprise that spearheads research and distributes a host of optical products, medical diagnostic technology, photography, spectroscopy, microscopy, planetarium, and optical processing equipment across the world. The name ZEISS is also synonymous with the world’s leading lithography optics, which are used by the chip industry to manufacture semiconductor components. Known as the grandfather of optics, ZEISS continues to lead the optical industry in providing the latest and best possible quality optical lenses to date.

Nikon gained enormous popularity and fame for its technology in producing optical instruments and Nikon spectacle prescription lenses. Nikon introduced the first antiglare coating with built-in scratch resistance, which is now featured in 100% of its lenses. Nikon also launched the thinnest plastic lenses to the market, introduced SEEMAX—the first custom made single vision lenses—and Presio W, the first double-sided customized progressive multifocal lenses. At Nikon, the art and science of vision combine with the best material and best optical design to create the best lenses.

Lens quality is important to us, which is why we only buy lenses from the best manufacturers and grind all lenses in Canada.
