The Digital Revolution in Optics

At Bassol Optic we have been offering a wide variety of optical solutions for more than 20 years both in Glasses and in Prescription Lenses or Contact Lenses. During this time that we have been providing our Optics services, we have lived a transformative process, today we want to explain the process of Digital Revolution that Optics has undergone and the changes that we have carried out.

What is the Digital Revolution?

The Digital Revolution consists of adding a new technology to the sector, although before we knew mechanics, analog and electronics, a new Digital technology is going to be adopted as indisputable on some occasions.

Digital Technology will begin at the end of the 70’s with the first digital computers and the first digital records that remain in force today. The Digital Revolution ushered in the Information Age.

How does the Digital Revolution affect us?

The Optics sector, like the Automobile sector, has suffered the Digital Revolution or for some experts also called the Third Industrial Revolution.

In the last two decades, the Digital Revolution has made us participate in a series of tools:

Mobile phones become as important as computers, even sound is prohibited in certain contexts such as exams, meetings or cinemas.

Text messages have become a cultural phenomenon and are established as a channel of communication.

With these first elements, we started the Digital Revolution and began to revolutionize the world and society until the last decade.

Today the widespread use of the Internet, Smarthpones, Tablets, Applications, Social Networks or SmartTV, have become the standard format for digital communication.
