Made to support natural eye movement​

Eye movement is multi-directional but a standard progressive lens is designed to support linear eye movement, which can make it hard for eyes to change focus rapidly. The Varilux® XR series™ lens responds to the way your eyes really move, giving you a more natural vision experience. The lens was developed with artificial intelligence, using 1 million data points from eyeglass wearers, so it can predict everyone’s visual behaviour.

To build your lenses, we create a digital avatar of you and analyse it in a 3D environment that reproduces real-life scenarios. This process establishes your individual vision profile, which enables us to optimize the lens for your visual behaviour, not just your prescription.​

Sharp and fluid vision​

As you multi-task through the day, you’ll experience instantly sharp focus in motion, with seamless switches from near to far. That means seeing things clearly at all distances, feeling reactive and stable, and moving with your natural posture.​​

  • Varilux XR

A cutting-edge combination

Three exclusive Essilor technologies come together in this game-changing solution for presbyopia:

  • XR-motion™ optimizes both lenses according to your prescription and your predicted visual behaviour, ensuring more fluid and sharp vision.
  • Nanoptix® smooths distortion at the periphery of the lens to minimize the unbalancing 'swim' sensation in dynamic situations, like walking up or down stairs..
  • Xtend® blends near and intermediate zones of the lens to provide clear vision at arm's length.





Your eyes make over 100,000 movements a day

In today's digitally connected world, our eyes are working to process information like never before, moving over 100,000 times a day – continuously switching and checking while we’re on the go.

Varilux® XR series™ is the progressive lens designed to respond to this evolution in our vision.
