Superior vision – Any distance, any situation

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

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

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

We grant you Varilux Insurance against breakages and theft – The only lens that offers insurance. Ask your opticians for more details.

Varilux is based on market leading innovations:

  • SynchronEyes™ – clearer vision from left to right and top to bottom.
  • Wavefront Advanced Vision Enhancement™ – sharp vision at any distance, even in low light.
  • 4D Technology™ – instant focus as your eyes move around.
  • Nanoptix™ – no ‘swim’ effect (where peripheral vision can be slightly altered by the changes that occur at the edge of progressive lenses).
  • Xtend™ – Extended arm’s length vision ( drmatically reducing head movements)


The very first progressive lens was invented in 1959 – it was a Varilux lens.

Half of all progressive lenses throughout the world are Varilux – that’s over 400 million wearers.

Essilor, the manufacturers of Varilux and the inventors of progressive lenses are among Forbes’ “World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies” in 2014.


Progressive lenses offer a smooth transition from distance vision through intermediate vision to near vision.
