ZURICH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vivior has signed an agreement with Kochoptik, a premium optical retailer in Switzerland. Kochoptik’s customers will wear Vivior’s Visual Behavior Monitor to provide a recommendation for an individualized vision care solution.
Vivior’s wearable device measures various parameters to assess visual behavior – distance to objects, head movements, light conditions. Kochoptik’s customers will have the opportunity to use the device to assess their visual needs. Vivior’s cloud computing software will then provide the data to Kochoptik’s specialists enabling them to select the optimal vision care solution for their customers, e.g. progressive lens spectacles.
“Vivior’s system is in line with our philosophy: satisfying the needs of our customers and always providing them with the highest level of quality”, says Friedrich Grimm, Managing Director of Kochoptik. “With the data made available by Vivior, we can even better understand our customers’ needs and serve them to their satisfaction.”
“The use of our system by Kochoptik opens new opportunities for Vivior in vision care. Selecting the right spectacle lenses fit to a customer’s lifestyle can significantly impact their business and ours”, says Mario Stark, CEO of Vivior.
