Essilor Launches Varilux® RoadPilot™
Monday, June 19 2017 | 00 h 00 min | New Products, Press Release
Available starting June 20, 2017, Varilux® RoadPilot™ lenses are perfectly adapted for driving with large fields of vision where it matters the most to drivers, allowing presbyopes to fully enjoy the road.
Driving requires good intermediate and far vision. With the absence of a near vision zone, the specific fields of vision required for driving are optimized and distortions are reduced. The ergonomic design of Varilux RoadPilot is based on the observation of actual drivers’ visual needs whatever their car and provides them with three main benefits:
A clear panoramic view
Thanks to completely unobstructed peripheral vision, wearers experience natural eye movements when checking rear-view mirrors and can better anticipate lateral movements and action of other cars.
Easy access to the dashboard and all driving indicators
The intermediate vision zone covers the main portion of the lens, offering direct, natural access to all critical information: speedometer, navigation system and more.
Dynamic vision with no distortion
A small power variation is automatically added to the lenses to ensure functional near vision. This will optimize the fields of vision specific to driving and reduce distortions.
