We’re one of a few to offer the Varilux X interactive personalisation experience

Updated: May 19, 2022

We’re proud to be one of only four practitioners in Sheffield to offer a sophisticated personalised service for patients with Varilux X varifocals.

Our practices in Woodseats and Crosspool can now dispense Varilux X lenses using the revolutionary Near Vision Behaviour measurement.

“Your posture and the way you look at things up close have changed. You’re now drinking coffee while texting the kids, sending an email via a tablet on the train or checking your social news feed every other hour. In short, everything that matters today happens within arm’s reach. Before now, no varifocal lens has been designed to accommodate these modern day behaviours and therefore you had to, ‘point your nose to where you want to look at’.

“The Varilux X series has revolutionised wearers’ near vision depth but you can elevate what you see to a whole new level by personalising your Varilux X series lenses using the unique Near Vision Behaviour measurement.

“Near vision reading is unique to the individual. Knowing your patient’s body posture and visual behaviour is now key to dispensing the best possible lenses. That’s why we’ve introduced the interactive personalisation experience that recreates familiar near vision tasks in practice and captures four measurements that are then integrated into the lens.”

Personalised Varilux X series lenses are engineered to sharpen vision, speed up lens adaptation time, significantly improve visual comfort and ensure that Varilux X series lenses are in perfect synergy with your eyes and frame.

Created by Essilor in 1959, the Varilux® brand is the world leader in progressive lenses. In the last 60 years, Essilor has deposited more than 50 patent families to protect the technical characteristics of Varilux lenses.
