Ever feel compromised with your varifocals? Do you experience blurry side vision or curved distortion when going down stairs or reading?  If you’ve been disappointed with varifocals before you’ll be excited about our new varifocal lens design!  Essilor, who invented the varifocal lens design over 50 years ago, have added an all-new progressive lens to their extensive range.

One of our patients has recently started to wear the new Varilux S lens for the first time … ‘They are crystal clear and have sharp focus at all distances … (and compared to her previous varifocal lenses)… they do give much clearer all round vision’.*

Two new and exclusive technologies have made the Varilux S Series design overcome the compromises you may have previously had when wearing your varifocals.

Nanoptix technology reduces the ‘swim effect’.  Synchroneyes technology ensures maximised fields of vision. If you have previously experienced some limits with your premium varifocal lenses, Essilor’s new Varilux S Series will provide you with ultimate flawless vision.

Wearers of the new Varilux S Series have experienced a wider angle of vision and a more balanced feel when moving.  90% of the swim effect is reduced through Varilux S Series compared to other premium lenses.**

Your new lens design comes with a choice of two anti-reflection coatings, Optifog UV and Crizal Forte UV.  We have had positive feedback from our patients for these premium coatings … ‘They certainly stay clearer for longer and are not a problem in the rain’.*

Both coatings have UV protection … your eyes can be damaged by UV rays 365 days of the year.  Even if your not in bright sunlight UV rays are everywhere and our Crizal UV coating will protect your eyes from the harmful light that reflects from the back of your lenses into your eye. For more information see our previous entriy on protecting your eyes from UV rays.

Also available for Varilux S Series lenses is  Crizal Optfog UV which provides you with fog free vision.

By treating your lenses once a week with the Optifog activator you will have steam free lenses in any situation!  For more information and to see our Optifog demonstration.

        • Crizal Forte UV protects against the 5 enemies of clear vision!
