Heritage Freeform Digital Progressives Will Work For You

With over 50 years of doing business, Icarelabs labs has seen its fair share of changes. No other year has seen more changes than 2018. On May 17th, 2018 we celebrated or 50th anniversary and made sure we purchased some great gifts for ourselves in the process.

Along with this fantastic milestone we went too 100% digital processing by adding an additional 3 digital generators and multiple soft polishers.

These upgrades gave us the ability to process even more digital designs than ever. We also introduced our second line of house-branded digital progressives in 2018. Always with a thought to our past as we press forward, we felt there was no better name than Heritage.

Our Heritage lenses utilize the proven Crossbows designs from Kodak Lens. Offered in a 3-tier offering similar to our Legacy line. With cutting-edge optical technologies found in no other lens designs, we were very confident that these would work well for you, our customers, and your patients.

Let me tell you, even with this confidence we were blown away with the results. Through our months long testing process, we were able to get feedback on over a thousand fits and the results were impressive. With over a 99% adaptation rate, reports of almost instant adaptation and full ECP buy-in, we knew we had a winner.

Here is a break-down of the 3 tier offerings and some of the cutting-edge technology found only in the Heritage designs:


An all-purpose free-form digital design offering low distortion, edge to edge distance, and a generous reading area. Will fit almost all seg height needs with six corridor offerings.
