The past 60 years have seen a lot of progression in the design and development of the Varilux lens.
In the early 1990s, a new design process put the wearer at the heart of the technological advancements, known as Live Optics. This is still in place today.
There have been many different versions of Varilux lenses, each offering new and advanced optimisation for various visual needs. For instance, Varilux Comfort considered the different tolerance levels of the visual system, while Varilux Panamic offered better adaptation and a panoramic visual field.
The last 60 years has revealed a better understanding of the visual system, the physiology of the eye, and neuroscience through monitoring real-life situations and seeing how movements, posture and behaviours affect vision.
This has made it possible to expand the design and technology behind Varilux, a lens that has pushed the boundaries with 70 patents and over 500 researchers worldwide.
Today, Varilux lenses are still reinventing themselves.
