A BESPOKE
CREATION

Before each Varilux® lens is made, your eye power as well as your optical and facial profile and your unique visual behaviour are measured using state-of-the-art devices. All these parameters are taken into account to generate a tailored lens calculation using Varilux® exclusive technologies*.

MASTER CRAFTSMANSHIP

Manufacturing a Varilux® lens is a long and complex process involving three key stages and up to 65 manipulations by experts:

 

STAGE 1: LENS BLOCKING 
Your parameters are programmed and semi-finished lenses with the right geometry are mounted onto alloys for personalization. 

STAGE 2: LENS SURFACING 
Using digital surfacing, your tailored technologies are transcripted and the lenses are diamond-cut to a perfect fit. 

STAGE 3: LENS POLISHING 
Each lens is polished individually to ensure a smooth and flawless finish.

METICULOUS CARE

Cleansed and coated to perfection, the protection stage for Varilux® lenses takes up the most time and involves three key stages:

ULTRASONIC CLEANSING

After wiping by hand, the lenses are rigorously cleaned 6 or 7 solutions for almost 30 minutes.  

HARD COATING

The lenses are hard-coated in a highly-controlled environment to make them impact and scratch resistant.

CRIZAL® TREATMENT

The lenses are placed in a special chamber where both sides are treated with Crizal® coating to protect against reflections, scratches, smudges and UV rays for the clearest vision possible.  

 

FINE ARTISTRY 

The finishing touches in lens crafting are crucial: they guarantee that your personalisation is completed to the highest degree.

EDGING

Your Varilux ® lenses are cut to perfection in-house to fit your selected frames. 

MOUNTING

Your lenses are mounted onto your chosen frames and carefully inspected to ensure they meet Varilux® lenses standards.

Each Varilux lens is engraved with the brand name on the top corner so that you can be sure they’re authentic.
