1959 has been a revolutionary milestone for optic science in correcting presbyopia. It is the year that the first progressive lenses are introduced by Bernard Maitenaz, a pioneer optician.
Until today, millions of people facing presbyopia have improved their vision conditions and enjoyed natural eyesight thanks to Varilux® progressive lenses.
Since the creation of the first Varilux® lenses, Essilor invests intensively in research and development for one sole reason, to offer people with the most natural vision.
All Varilux ® lenses are being thoroughly and clinically tested so as to ensure maximum visual performance.
The entire Varilux® product line restores vision despite age or sight distance differences in order to enjoy freely maximum and natural sight.
Authenticity of Varilux® lenses can be proven by the authenticity card which is being provided upon purchase of the product as well as by the engravings that the lenses bear.
