Optoplus Blog - For presbyopes, quality vision requires an adapted solution and quality lenses.

By Essilor Canada

Your vision isn't quite the same as it used to be. You hold your reading material further away; tasks close-up involving details are more difficult. You experience visual fatigue more often; you have difficulty seeing what's on your phone screen. You may be presbyopic!

Presbyopia is a natural evolution of the eye that makes near vision difficult. It affects everyone, from the age of 40, regardless of your vision when you were younger. But, don't worry, after an eye exam by your optometrist and a discussion about your lifestyle, he or she will be able to offer you simple and effective solutions that are perfectly adapted to your needs: progressive lenses.

Your eyecare professional may tell you about Essilor Varilux® lenses, the world's leading progressive lens brand*, worn by more than 400 million presbyopes. What makes Varilux lenses so different from other progressive lenses? How can they help you achieve vision that is closer to natural vision?

The very first progressive lens, invented in 1959, was a Varilux® lens. Since then, Essilor has been continuously listening to people 40 years and older in order to understand their needs and provide a complete range of solutions for every presbyope. All Varilux® lenses are developed through the exclusive LiveOptics™ program, a unique approach that combines physiological research with the latest technological innovations to constantly improve lens performance. In addition, LiveOptics™ includes tests on real wearers at the final validation stage.

Image All the lenses in the Varilux® range benefit from exclusive, patented technologies and the Varilux® X Series™ lenses, incorporating Xtend™ technology, are the most advanced. They will allow you to instantly capture every detail at arm's reach and beyond with great accuracy. You'll be able to comfortably switch between your smartphone and newspaper or grab your cup of coffee while texting your kids. You'll enjoy exceptional sharpness, continuous vision and fluidity from near and far. It also means more freedom because you won't have to move your head to focus so you can keep doing what you want to do.

For quality vision adapted to all kinds of activities, Varilux® lenses are available with several features including: protection against blue light, Xperio® polarizing sun lenses, and Transitions® lenses that automatically adapt to changing light conditions.
