Superior vision - Any distance, any situation

We’ve pushed the boundaries to bring you the world’s most advanced mutli-distance lenses. 

Wave goodbye to switching between standard reading and distance vision glasses and the limitations of multi-focals, such as the ‘swim’ effect and a narrow field of vision.

Instead, we give you sharp, clear vision and a smooth transition between distances.


Discover five compelling reasons to take advantage of the leading innovations in the Varilux product range.

1. Clear vision at any distance

Near or far, the Varilux range gives you clear vision whatever the distance.

2. Total comfort in any task

Whether at work with a computer, using a smartphone or tablet screen, or simply reading the news paper, the Varilux range provides total comfort.

3. High resolution vision in any light 

Varilux Physio lets you enjoy greater contrast and sharpness. The increase in quality is comparable to a full HD TV over a standard television.

4. Dynamic vision steady in motion

Great for sports and staying active, the Varilux range allow you to see perfectly - even in motion. Lenses are tailored to your visual behavior.

5. Quick adaptation

All Varilux lenses are tested and approved by wearers to ensure your satisfaction, including fast and easy adaptation. With Varilux lenses, adaptation is guaranteed.


Varilux is based on market leading innovations:

  • SynchronEyes™ – clearer vision from left to right and top to bottom.
  • Wavefront Advanced Vision Enhancement™ – sharp vision at any distance, even in low light.
  • 4D Technology™ – instant focus as your eyes move around.
  • Nanoptix™ – no ‘swim’ effect (where peripheral vision can be slightly altered by the changes that occur at the edge of progressive lenses.)


The very first multi-distance lens was invented in 1959 – it was a Varilux lens.

Half of all multi-distance lenses throughout the world are Varilux – that’s over 400 million wearers.

Essilor, the manufacturers of Varilux and the inventors of multi-distance lenses are among Forbes’ "World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies" in 2014.


Progressive lenses offer a smooth transition from distance vision through intermediate vision to near vision.
