A NEW DEFINITION OF NEAR VISION

Your posture and the way you look at things up close have changed. Today people are drinking coffee while texting the kids, sending an email via a tablet on the train or checking their social news feed every other hour. In short, everything that matters today happens within arm’s reach. Before now, no varifocal lens has been designed to accommodate these modern-day behaviors and therefore people had to, ‘point your nose to where you want to look at’.

Varilux X series removes this limitation through its ‘Xtend’ technology. You will no longer need to move your head around to see clearly.

SEE EVEN CLEARER WITH THE PERSONALIZED VARILUX X SERIES

Elevate what you see to a whole new level by personalizing your Varilux X series lenses. Personalized Varilux X series lenses are engineered to sharpen vision, speed up lens adaptation time, significantly improve visual comfort and ensure your Varilux X series lenses are in perfect synergy with your eyes and frame.

A VISUAL MEASUREMENT EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER

We have created an interactive personalization experience designed to take 7 specific visual measurements to ensure your lenses are fully personalized to you, your posture and your visual behavior. Personalized Varilux X series lenses dramatically improve the most important aspects of the Varilux visual experience and is only found at selected opticians across the UK.

Essilor has launched its latest innovation to enhance the visual experience of presbyopia sufferers – going one step further in understanding the evolving needs of wearers and putting them at the heart of its innovation process. Group designers have focused efforts on improving vision at arm’s length – reflecting the multitude of near vision tasks of today’s lifestyles. The Varilux® X series™ in particular has been designed to meet the ever-changing expectations of Generation X, consumers born between 1965 and 1980, who are highly active, digitally connected and don’t want to be limited by their vision. But it’s also a progressive lens that ensures quality vision at every distance for all active presbyopia sufferers.

By re-shaping a specific zone in the lens, it overcomes a typical frustration with many progressive lenses – having to adjust one’s head to find the right angle. The Varilux® X series™ lens is the result of innovation in lens design with Xtend™ technology which delivers additional benefits for today’s near vision demands. Combined with a new calculator Essilor is able to design each lens with much greater precision taking into account multiple targets for one gaze direction.

Nearly 3,000 presbyopia sufferers around the world participated in the development of the Varilux® X series™ through focus group interviews, video selfies and new methodologies of wearer testing including Essilor’s new HouseLab™ – a controlled home environment to observe and discuss wearer experiences.

Eye care professionals have already begun to explore the benefits of this revolutionary progressive lens at a series of events and roadshows. Featuring augmented reality, video mapping and 2D and 3D animations, the different events have provided a unique high-tech flavor highlighting the cutting-edge innovation in this new progressive lens as well as explaining how it improves the visual experience of presbyopia sufferers.
