WHAT SETS US APART

Advanced progressive lens technologies

Did you know we invented the very first progressive lenses in 1959? The idea came from Bernard Maitenaz, a young engineer at Societe des Lunetiers, that would later become Essilor. His vision, the first progressive lens, would go on to change the lives of 40-plussers across the world, starting with his own father.

Since then, we've been constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation to bring you sharp, more natural vision with smooth transitions from near to far.

Thanks to their exclusive technologies, Varilux® progressive lenses appear clear throughout, unlike the distracting lines of a bifocal lens.

The Heart of Varilux Progressive Lenses Innovation

Everything we do is rooted in our passion for improving the vision of our wearers helping you see more and do more. That’s why wearers are at the heart of our approach to innovation.

For example, we test all Varilux lenses under real-life conditions, over several weeks, before they are launched onto the market.

DID YOU KNOW?

  1. You can find up to 30 patents in one Varilux lens.
  2. Varilux is the #1 progressive lens brand recommended by eyecare professionals.*

     

OUR EXCLUSIVE VARILUX TECHNOLOGIES

These are the technologies developed to help provide a better vision with Varilux lenses.



Path Optimizer™ provides you with a sharp vision at all distances along the viewing path and a larger near vision field*.

W.A.V.E. Technology

 

W.A.V.E. 2.0® Technology cleans the lens from high-order aberrations; you can now benefit from sharper vision, unequaled contrast, and wider fields of vision** in all light conditions, at every distance, for every prescription and all ages.

Binocular Booster

 

Did you know that most wearers have a different prescription in each eye? Binocular Booster™ technology analyzes both right and left prescription simultaneously to provide you with seamless transitions at all distances for effortless vision.

Swim Control

 

Thanks to Swim Control Technology™, which reduces the period of adaptation by providing stability of vision in motion, there is no reason you should not enjoy easy vision, fast adaptation, and less distortions.

Nanoptix

 

Nanoptix® reduces distortion, allowing for stability of vision in motion and an overall natural vision. This is the end of the swim effect!

Synchroneyes

 

Synchroneyes® calculates both lenses as a pair by taking into account the differences between the right and left prescription as well as pupil distances. It offers you a wide-angle vision!

Xtend

 

Breakthrough Xtend® technology delivers the biggest volume of vision within arm’s reach. For one gaze direction, you can now see clearly multiple targets within arm’s reach.

4D Technology

 

4D Technology™ takes your dominant eye into consideration and improves your reaction time.

THANKS TO THEIR EXCLUSIVE TECHNOLOGIES, VARILUX
PROGRESSIVE LENSES APPEAR CLEAR THROUGHOUT,
UNLIKE THE DISTRACTING LINES OF A BIFOCAL LENS.
