Premium lenses from the company that invented the first varifocal lens


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. 


Offer your patients the best varifocal lenses


Essilor is a world leader in lens manufacturing, giving you the chance to invest in the latest lens technology for your practice. Our varifocal lenses, Varilux, are dispensed every 4 seconds around the world, offering patients the very best in vision benefits.


The right varifocal lenses can help your patients see beyond a diagnosis of presbyopia. With lenses that make everything that little bit easier, it’s important that you’re able to offer lenses that anticipate their needs.
