MR Lenses: Pioneering Innovation in Eyewear Materials

MR lenses, or Modified Resin lenses, represent a significant innovation in today's eyewear industry. Resin lens materials emerged in the 1940s as alternatives to glass, with ADC※ materials monopolizing the market. However, due to their low refractive index, resin lenses suffered from thickness and aesthetics issues, prompting the search for high refractive index lens materials.

In the 1980s, Mitsui Chemicals applied highly impact-resistant polyurethane resin to eyewear lenses, advancing material research with the "sulfluoran" concept (introducing sulfur atoms to increase refractive index). In 1987, the groundbreaking MR™ brand product MR-6™ was introduced, featuring an innovative molecular structure with a high refractive index of 1.60, high Abbe number, and low density, ushering in a new era of high refractive index eyewear lenses.


Compared to traditional resin lenses, MR lenses offer higher refractive indices, lighter weights, and superior optical performance, making them a shining gem in the eyewear industry.

Lightweight Comfort
MR lenses are renowned for their lightweight properties. Compared to traditional lens materials, MR lenses are lighter, providing a more comfortable wearing experience and alleviating the pressure associated with prolonged wear, enabling users to enjoy a more pleasant wearing experience.

Outstanding Optical Performance
MR lenses not only offer lightweight characteristics but also excel in optical performance. They boast excellent refractive indices, effectively refracting light to provide clearer and more realistic vision. This makes MR lenses the preferred choice for many eyewear users, especially those with high demands for visual quality.

Scratch Resistance
Manufactured with high-quality materials, MR lenses exhibit outstanding scratch resistance. They can withstand scratches and abrasions from daily use, extending the lifespan of the lenses and providing users with durable eye protection.

Wide Applications
Due to their excellent performance and comfortable wearing experience, MR lenses are widely used in various types of eyewear products. Whether for prescription glasses, sunglasses, or blue light-blocking glasses, MR lenses meet the diverse needs of users, becoming an essential component of the eyewear industry.

Sustainable Development
In addition to superior performance, MR lenses prioritize sustainable development. Environmentally friendly materials and production processes are used in manufacturing to minimize environmental impact, contributing to sustainable development efforts.
