A New Hope For Presbyopes
Varilux lenses are an exciting new weapon in the fight against presbyopia
(a natural eye condition that affects the eye's ability to bring near
objects into focus). These lenses use revolutionary technology so
presbyopes can see near, far, and everything in between.
Millions of people with presbyopia or Long-Arm Eyes™ including current
bifocal and trifocal wearers now see the way they were meant to again
thanks to these amazing eyeglasses.
Varilux lenses enable your eyes to make a smooth, gradual transition when
you change your focus from near to intermediate to far vision. Unlike
bifocal lenses, Varilux lenses eliminate the line that creates an abrupt,
annoying vision change from near to far vision.
The added comfort of Varilux is achieved with an increased field of
vision. This larger vision field reduces unnecessary head movements both
vertically and horizontally, which means you can assume a more natural,
comfortable posture when viewing objects at close and intermediate ranges.
With Varilux lenses,
head movements are reduced to 6º – only half as much – while
the eyes are able to turn 19º. The gradual and regular
distribution of power characteristics in the periphery of
the Varilux lens allows for very comfortable vision in a
lateral, side-to-side gaze. The Varilux wearer enjoys larger
fields of vision with less head movement.
Near the age of 40, a condition
known as Presbyopia develops. It’s a natural part of aging which makes
it difficult to focus on things close. Since the days of Ben Franklin,
the solution to this has been bifocals.
These types of lenses are now
outdated. In addition to an unsightly line, their biggest limitation
is that there is no clear vision at intermediate distances (such as a
car dashboard, shelves at a grocery store, bank ATM machine, computer
