Why can I no longer focus on objects up close?
Vision changes occur naturally as you age. When you reach your 40's, focusing at close range becomes difficult. This is a natural part of the aging process caused by a gradual hardening of the eye's crystalline lens, reducing its ability to change shape and focus. This condition is called Presbyopia.
How do progressive lenses differ from ordinary bifocals
Progressive addition lenses feature a continuous, clear field of vision from distance, through the intermediate ranges, to near without the use of annoying bifocal lines. Bifocal lenses use very old technology. Abrupt and awkward changes between distance and near prescriptions are separated by annoying lines that can be frustrating to wear.
Are Varilux© lenses better than other progressive lenses?
Varilux© has conducted extensive clinical research, the result of which has produced a lens offering all presbyopes naturally comfortable vision never before achieved with a progressive lens. With over 100 million pairs sold, the unique triple-patented Varilux© lens is the brand most prescribed by eye care professionals and trusted by millions of satisfied wearer.
Who would be a candidate for Varilux© progressive lenses?
Anyone who has presbyopia, including current bifocal and trifocal wearers.
Is it difficult to adjust to Varilux© Lenses?
Most individuals will learn to use their Varilux© lenses right away. Others may take a bit longer to become completely comfortable. Your eye care professional should be made aware of any extended adaptation period. A "fine-tuning" frame adjustment may be all that is necessary to assist in this initial period.
Can Varilux© reduce the thickness of my eyeglass lenses?
Varilux© lenses are available in a variety of different materials that will reduce both thickness and weight. Smaller frames also reduce lens thickness and weight. Your eye care professional will consider prescription, frame size, and your individual lifestyle as factors in helping you decide which lens material will be best for you.
Do Varilux© lenses have scratch & ultraviolet protection?
Yes. There are many combinations of additional lens options that can be customized into your lenses to better fit your lifestyle, as well as offer you the utmost vision clarity, comfort, and protection.
What is the warranty on Varilux© lenses?
