Cutting-edge lenses for your best vision

The science behind the lens

Imagine lenses that let you see details like never before. Or ones that are so light and clear, you can barely even tell they’re there. With more than 8,065 individual patents and counting, Essilor is constantly solving vision issues like glare, smudges, protection from damaging ultraviolet light, blurry vision, and more. Below are just a few of the innovative technologies we’ve pioneered.

W.A.V.E. Technology logo


See all the sharp details, even at night. W.A.V.E. Technology is an advanced lens technology that eliminates the blurriness and low-light issues of ordinary progressive lenses. It provides sharper vision at every distance, even in dim lighting. W.A.V.E. Technology innovation is incorporated in all Varilux® lenses.

Xtend logo


This innovation allows you to see multiple distances in a single direction, significantly extending vision within arm's reach so you no longer have to move your head around to find the right vision zone. The Xtend Technology innovation is included in the Varilux® X Series lenses.

Nanoptix logo


Do you ever feel a little off-balance wearing glasses? Like the world around you is moving, such as when walking down the stairs or parking your car? Our revolutionary Nanoptix Technology virtually eliminates that feeling and reduces peripheral blur, so you can feel more confident on the go. Nanoptix is incorporated in the Varilux X Series lenses.

Synchroneyes logo


SynchronEyes Technology helps eyes work better together, providing sharp vision from left to right and top to bottom. SynchronEyes is incorporated in the Varilux X Series lenses.

4D Technology logo


See faster moving from one point to another with 4D Technology. It's the only technology to use a personalised measurement for the leading dominant eye. 4D Technology innovation is incorporated in the Varilux X Series lenses.

Chromea7 Technology logo


With this technology, lenses seamlessly adjust from clear to dark, and every shade in between. The exclusive, patented formulation consists of unique dyes that are integrated into the surface of the lens, and that constantly recalibrate and darken or lighten to the right degree. This innovation is incorporated in the Transitions® lenses.
