Introducing Varilux® X Series™ Which Reinvents Near Vision

Available from September 19 to all Varilux Xperience partners, Varilux X series lenses are the result of the most advanced innovation process based on the collaborative efforts of internal and external resources, eye care professionals and nearly 3,000 presbyopes.

Generation X is getting presbyopic and is living in a faster-paced world compared to Baby Boomers. They grew up among digital tools, have learned to cope in a fast changing, multi-tasking world, and they want to keep up the speed with the younger generations.

Multiple Near Distances at Arm’s Length

Increasingly, people are spending time indoors and exercising their vision mostly in short and intermediate distances. Gen X is craving for seamless acuity in various everyday tasks, at multiple near distances. They want to send a text while catching up their favorite TV show on a tablet, they are checking breaking news alerts on their mobile while working on their desktop.

From 2D to 3D, Varilux® X Series is Setting a New Reference Criterium – Vision Volume

Historically, progressive lens designers were considering a single target object for one gaze direction, the near vision zone in a progressive lens was set at 40 cm at 36 degrees. Today, Essilor designers have focused their efforts on vision at arm’s length, formulating a new reference criterium: vision volume. This pioneer approach addresses the main limit of progressive lenses: the necessity to adjust head position to see sharp.

No Need to Move the Head to See Sharp at Near Distances

Essilor research has analysed in-depth the usual zone of vision in one posture. The objective was to meet most visual needs inside this zone. Varilux® X series is providing impressive 75% match with wearers’ visual needs at arm’s length in one gaze direction, without head adjusting movement, a significant improvement compared to other premium progressive lens (vs. 59% on average for competitors). Demanding progressive wearers can now seamlessly capture every detail within arm’s reach, and beyond. Their sharp vision is extended by 100% in width and length, in this new defined vision zone at arm’s length.

Varilux® X Series, Made Possible by New Xtend Technology

The new progressive lens generation is the result of a combination of Xtend, a revolution in lens conception thanks to a new calculator, with two latest Varilux technologies that have been improved: Nanoptix and SynchronEyes, breakthrough in the semi-finished and in binocular vision. Varilux® S series was breaking the compromise between fields of vision and swim effect. Xtend can now process even more complex algorithms and optimize Nanoptix structure by clusters of seven in order to combine their power and multiply the effects.

Near Vision Behaviour Personalization

Varilux® X Seriesis coming with a new in-store tool to get patient individual measurements. In only seven minutes of meaningful in-store experience, the protocol will provide reliable and robust measurements of Near Vision Behaviour.

Approved and Validated by Progressive Lens Wearers

Essilor has implemented a comprehensive consumer validation process to ensure full satisfaction. To assess the real added benefits of Varilux® X series lens, in-depth “real life” and “in lab” experiences have been run. Actually, 2,742 presbyopes around the globe have participated to the development of Varilux® X Series. The new lens generation gets up to a stunning 95% satisfaction during multitasking at arm’s length. It is preferred by 86% vs. Varilux® S series in multi-tasking situations at arm’s length.
