Patient benefits

  • Dynamic, comfortable vision

As unwanted astigmatism peaks and power gradients in peripheral zones have been reduced, there are far fewer aberrations. The power gradients are also distributed equally on either side of the progression, resulting in a better balance and giving Varilux Comfort® New Edition a particularly soft design. Wearers will notice less swim/sway effects and dynamic vision is more comfortable.

  • Natural near vision

Because the power progression is shorter, near vision is more accessible making switching between near and distance vision that much easier, and the near vision inset is better suited to the wearer’s convergence. The wearer’s prescription and near addition have all been taken into account when designing the new lens to ensure that their gaze in near vision is much more natural.

  • Precisely optimised

Essilor’s exclusive digital-surfacing process is used to adapt the lens design precisely and optimise it for each individual wearer’s prescription, no matter how complex.

Lens protection with Crizal Sapphire UV

Live Optics

Varilux Comfort New Edition lenses have been designed using Essilor's exclusive "Live Optics" Research & Development technique, which considers wearer physiology and optics, following which a full evaluation of the design through detailed wearer tests are conducted.

Total Comfort System

The Total Comfort System is a Varilux initiative that enabled the development of a lens that meets the requirements of wearers working and living in today’s demanding environments. Essilor R&D were able to determine the behaviours of presbyopes over long periods of time. A number of methods are used to optimise the lens’ properties, from precise observations of wearer behaviour to carrying out tests in real life conditions.

Digital surfacing

Varilux Comfort New Edition are manufactured using digital surfacing, ensuring the performance of the lens is optimised.
