Thursday, June 6 2019 | 11 h 13 min | News, Press Release
This year, Varilux® is celebrating its 60th anniversary: it was in May 1959 that Bernard Maitenaz had created this revolutionary solution. To mark this milestone, the Essilor Group has organized a tribute exhibition for its employees.
With 680 million Varilux® lenses sold worldwide since 1959 and a long list of successes, including the recent launch of Varilux® X, the Varilux® brand is an industry reference for progressive lenses in the current optical market. This success can be credited to six decades of customer-focused innovation, research and development, collaboration, production and strategic deployment by the men and women of the Essilor Group.
Varilux® has transformed the lives of presbyopes around the world, becoming one of Essilor’s leading brands.
Since the first pair of Varilux® progressive lenses was manufactured in 1959, the lens has been a cutting-edge innovation in its own right and continues to evolve, further improving the lives of presbyopes.
