They’re like magic glasses that offer crystal-clear vision whether you’re up close or gazing into the distance.

Varilux Progressive Lenses

What are Progressive Lenses?

Progressive lenses are advanced eyewear solutions designed to correct multiple vision distances. Unlike monofocal lenses, which offer correction for only one focal point, progressive lenses provide a smooth transition from near to intermediate to far distances, eliminating the need for multiple pairs of glasses. This innovative technology allows wearers to enjoy clear vision at all distances without the inconvenience of switching between glasses.

The History of the Varilux Brand

Varilux, a brand under Essilor International, has been a pioneer in corrective lenses since 1959. Invented by Bernard Maitenaz, the Varilux lens was the first progressive lens to effectively correct presbyopia, seamlessly addressing near, intermediate, and far vision needs. Maitenaz’s inspiration stemmed from his dissatisfaction with the abrupt transition in his father’s bifocal lenses, leading him to conceptualize a more rational solution.

The journey of Varilux has been one of continuous innovation and refinement. From its humble beginnings in Maitenaz’s sketches in 1951 to the official patent submission by Essel in 1953, Varilux progressively evolved into a groundbreaking lens. By 1958, Essel had developed the machinery for mass production, leading to the official launch of Varilux in May 1959.

The success of Varilux extended beyond France, as Essel strategically expanded its distribution globally. By the late 1960s, Varilux had garnered international acclaim, with sales skyrocketing to 2 million lenses by 1969. Despite initial concerns regarding adaptation, Varilux’s commitment to innovation led to the development of Varilux Comfort in 1993, heralding a new era of progressive lens design.

Subsequent iterations, such as Varilux Panamic (2002) and Varilux Physio (2006), further enhanced wearer comfort and visual performance. The Varilux X Series, introduced in 2017, exemplifies the brand’s dedication to optimizing visual clarity and reducing the need for frequent adjustments.

Throughout its history, Varilux has remained at the forefront of research and development, utilizing cutting-edge technologies like virtual simulation and personalized diagnostics to continually improve wearer experience. As a result, Varilux lenses continue to redefine the standard for progressive lens technology, offering unmatched precision, comfort, and clarity to millions worldwide.
