the Big advantage of Customised just for you bespoke lenses from Rodenstock



Named after the town in which it began, Hoya was started by two brothers Shoichi and Shigeru Yamanaka. Originally called Toyo Optical Glass Manufacturing, the company grew and expanded to become the multinational Hoya Corporation.

Today, Hoya employs a multinational workforce of over 34,000 people and has more than 150 offices and subsidiaries around the world.

Hoya’s lenses are produced with freeform surfacing. This treats the lens surface as a series of individual points, which Hoya engineers cut at pixel level along multiple axes. Such precision means that each lens can be optimised for every prescription. Hoya can even incorporate frame, fitting and wearing parameters into the lens calculation resulting in a highly personalised lens, every time.

Hoya Driving Lenses

Hoya understands the essential importance of driving to eyewear users. Their Enroute lens comes in both single vision and progressive designs and provides a host of benefits to motorists including:

  • Reduced glare and reflections from oncoming traffic and streetlights

  • Better contrast and brightness experience while driving in low light conditions

  • Clear vision in the far distance, the dashboard and in mirrors

  • Easy switching between distances

This makes for a driving experience that is more relaxing, more comfortable and safer. Professionals such as van and lorry drivers can wear the Enroute Pro which, in addition to the above benefits, has a contrast enhancing filter and a lens design that factors in driver vision and viewing distance to the dashboard. This promotes a natural, relaxed driving posture which is important for long haul journeys where the driver must stay in peak condition.

Hoya Sportive Lenses

The high-curved lenses are designed for wraparound frames, providing a snug, comfortable fit and protection at both the front and side of the face. Hoya’s Sportive lenses feature:

  • Optimised lens designs for high-curved frames with our unique prism compensation technology

  • Freeform surfacing, based on the wearing parameters of the selected frame

  • High base curves that match the curvature of sports frames

  • Choice of impact-resistant lens materials

  • 100% UV protection*
