Varifocal lenses vary considerably in quality. The designs have improved dramatically since they became popular in the 70’s, the original designs suffered distortions and narrow zones of vision. strange as it may seem these early designs are still available and can be seen in buy one get one free offers and the like.
Far safer to trust a branded product with up to date design features such as our Varilux range. This is the trademark of our supplier Essilor – the inventors of varifocals, the website is worth a visit.

Essilor have several designs which range from the entry level Varilux Liberty through to premium designs such as Varilux Comfort, Varilux E and now the Varilux X. All of these can be ordered in thin and light versions and have scratch resistant treatment as standard.

As Varilux Specialist opticians we are well qualified to supply Varilux in all its forms.

Reducing Reflections

Whether we are at home, at work or shopping, we are exposed to multiple sources of light. Coming from all angles, light reaches your lenses and creates reflections. These reflections can be a source of discomfort and impact your everyday life by making us adopt new behaviours, consciously and subconsciously. We adjust our heads, changing our posture or even remove our spectacle lenses just reduce the visual impacts of reflections. Choose between Crizal Prevencia with enhanced blue-violet light protection or Crizal Sapphire UV reducing reflections regardless of where the light comes from. By reducing the amount of reflections your vision will be purer with more vivid images and improved lens aesthetics when others look at you. Transparency has never been so visible

Transitions for sun protection

Lenses that darken with the light are now available in Transitions Style Colours as well as the traditional Brown, Grey and Grey/Green. The new Transitions Xtractive are extra dark in the sun but crucially also partially darken when driving.
