Essilor Launches Varilux Comfort Enhanced Fit Digital Lenses

Essilor of America announced the launch of Varilux Comfort Enhanced Fit digital lenses, a new personalized option within the Varilux Comfort lenses family. Essilor reports that Varilux Comfort digital lenses, which were first introduced in 1993, and redesigned in 2010, are the world’s most popular progressive lens design–surpassing 100 million pairs sold worldwide. The new Varilux Comfort Enhanced Fit digital lens is the latest version of this lens design.

Nine out of ten eyeglass wearers have different frame wearing parameters outside the average values traditionally used to calculate lens design. Varilux Comfort Enhanced Fit digital lenses allow the lens design to be optimized through use of personalized frame wearing measurements. In addition, these lenses minimize unnatural head movement when reading, provide comfortable transitions at all distances, reduce peripheral distortion to expand visual fields throughout the lens, and offer design elements on both sides of the lens through Varilux DualOptix digital surfacing.

“Eyeglasses are worn in a very personal way, and the right fit depends on wearer facial features and frame choice,” says Carl Bracy, executive vice president of market & business development, Essilor of America. “With Varilux Comfort Enhanced Fit digital lenses, one of Essilor’s newest innovations in progressive lens design, ECPs can offer patients personalization of their lenses based on the frames they choose.”

Comfort Enhanced Fit digital lenses can be dispensed using the current Visioffice System, as well as the new Visioffice 2 System, which features updated digital measuring technology.
