Varilux lens benefits.


Superior vision
Any distance, 
any situation

We’ve pushed the boundaries to bring you the world’s most advanced varifocal lenses.

Wave goodbye to switching between standard reading and distance vision glasses and the limitations of varifocals, such as the ‘swim’ effect and a narrow field of vision.

Instead, we give you sharp, clear vision and a smooth transition between distances.

5 reasons
to wear Varilux

Discover five compelling reasons to take advantage of the leading
innovations in the Varilux product range.

1. Clear vision at any distance

Near or far, the Varilux range gives you clear vision whatever the distance.

2. Total comfort in any task

Whether at work with a computer, using a smartphone or tablet screen, or simply reading the news paper, the Varilux range provides total comfort.

3. High resolution vision in any light

Varilux Physio lets you enjoy greater contrast and sharpness. The increase in quality is comparable to a full HD TV over a standard television.

4. Dynamic vision steady in motion

5. Quick adaptation
