Varilux® lenses empower your vision.
Varilux® lenses make a real difference to your everyday life. You no longer have to move your head up and down to find the right spot in the lens to see or feel afraid to go down a staircase. You can drive through the busiest cities with confidence in your eyesight once again.
1. Personalised design
When you purchase your first pair of Varilux® lenses, your optician will start by analysing your specific visual needs, using the most advanced instruments provided by Essilor® to take accurate and detailed measurements, before suggesting one of the many different designs available. The quality and comfort of all Varilux® lenses have been systematically tested and approved by wearers in real-life conditions before reaching the market through our LiveOptics™ program, established in 1993. So our designers have an excellent knowledge of wearers’ behaviours, usages, and postural needs. Opticians rely on this deep research in order to choose the optimized model for you that takes into account your posture and visual behaviour and that will be easy to adapt to. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the visual comfort, the sharpness of your vision, and overall great performance of your new lenses.
2. Technology, innovation, performance
Innovating in the field of ophthalmic optics involves constantly addressing new challenges in optical design, materials and the coating of lenses.
At the heart of this is your comfort when wearing your new glasses.
Varilux® progressive lenses are based on cutting-edge technologies, such as:
SynchronEyes® technology to provide clearer vision from left to right and top to bottom.
Wavefront Advanced Vision Enhancement™ technology for sharp vision at any distance, even in low light.
4D Technology™ for instant focus as your eyes move around.
Nanoptix® technology so that there is no ‘swim’ effect that can make you feel off-balance (due to altered peripheral vision occured by the edges of progressive lenses.)
And with the launch of its latest innovation, Varilux® X series™, Varilux® goes a step further by inventing a new and intuitive measure called “Near Vision Behaviour” to track people’s movements, taking into account each user’s unique visual behaviour and posture in the lens design. This is important because we all differ in the ways we compensate for difficulties in near vision. Some of us might hold a tablet close with a low gaze, others do just the opposite, holding a tablet far with an upward gaze.
