In 1959, Essilor invented the world’s first varifocal lens, creating a solution that meant wearers could see at different distances without an obvious break or line in the lens itself. At the time, the only solution available for presbyopes was the bifocal lens. Varifocals have since been a revolution for those needing different prescriptions in one lens, providing clear and natural vision.
Since then, our range of varifocal lenses have expanded to include lens solutions that are easy to adapt to, with something to suit every lifestyle. Thanks to 60 years of development, our varifocal lenses have been created with modern behaviours and physiology of the eye in mind, giving your patients the ultimate visual experience for work or play.
