Patient benefits

Near vision revolutionised

Wearers today need to multi-task quickly and freely. Varilux® X series™ lenses are designed with multiple fields of vision in mind. These near distance visual needs correspond to a range of between 40 and 70 cm from the wearer, known as arm’s length. Varilux X series has reinvented near vision at arm's length.


Reduced head movement

A common varifocal complaint from wearers is that they need to constantly move their head in the direction they wish to see. In all situations tested, Varilux X series wearers find they need very little head movement to find the right spot when multi-tasking at arm's reach.


Blue-violet and UV light protection with Eye Protect System

Embedded in Varilux X series, Eye Protect System protects wearers' eyes by absorbing selected blue-violet light and UV light into the lens.

Introducing Volume of Vision

Varifocal performance is measured by swim effect and binocular fields of vision. Varilux X series introduces a whole new performance criteria - Volume of Vision. When a wearer looks at a particular object through a Varilux X series lens they will now notice an improvement in depth and breadth of vision. This vision experience is exclusive to Varilux X series.

A new personalisation feature

Near vision tasks involves a whole body response, which is more complex than distance visions. For example, think of your body position when you read a tablet sat down. Varilux X series personalisation parameter ensures your patients' vision volume is positioned and shaped where and how they need it.

Lens protection with Crizal Sapphire UV

The Crizal Sapphie UV coating provides protection against UV light and is anti-reflective, scratch resistant, smudge repellent, water repellent and dust repellent.
