At Williams Lake Optometry we carry Varilux lenses to suit your unique eyewear needs.
Varilux X Series
Varilux X Series lenses are the most advanced progressive lenses on the market today. Varilux X Series lenses provide all the benefits of other Varilux lens designs, while eliminating the “off-balance” feeling sometimes experienced when wearing other progressive lenses. Whatever the distance, whatever the situation, you will see the difference immediately.
Eliminate off-balance feeling.
Ordinary progressive lenses can cause an off-balance feeling like the world around you is moving. Varilux X Series lenses use revolutionary Nanoptix™ Technology to virtually eliminate the off-balance feeling, so you can feel more confident on the go.
Varilux E Series
The Secret of Varilux E series: Swim Control Technology
Swim Control Technology is derived from a multi-patented calculation based on the creation of micro elements. These micro elements are used to manage the lens power independently from the lens curvature: When the lens power increases, the lens curvature remains flat. As the lens curvature remains flat, the swim effect is dramatically reduced.
How The Swim Control Makes The Difference?
The calculation of the micro elements has been simplified to concentrate on the sides of the lens where the swim effect is greatest.
Varilux E series lenses are manufactured using S Digital Surfacing, which ensures a much more accurate blocking of the lens. This allows for the Swim Control Technology to be applied with an unmatched level of precision. No less than 5 patents protect this unique manufacturing process. Patient Benefits
Wearers will benefit from up to 50% less swim effect and easier adaptation. 88% of presbyopes* agree it can take quite a long time to get used to Varifocal lenses and Varilux researchers have confirmed that the swimming effect is the main reason for slow adaptation.
Varilux Comfort Max
No more squinting in a candlelit restaurant or missing the subtle beauty during sunset. Get sharp, natural vision at any distance, even in low lighting conditions with Varilux Comfort lenses, featuring exclusive W.A.V.E. Technology: Wavefront Advanced Vision Enhancement™.
NEAR VISION: Extended Area, Greater Comfort
W.A.V.E. Technology stabilizes power in an extended near area, allowing the eye to use a larger area of the lens, so wearers access near vision comfortably, with a greater field of sharpness.
LOW-LIGHT: Unsurpassed Sharpness
As pupils are particularly enlarged in low-light situations, aberrations are more apparent. W.A.V.E. Technology‘s coma control has a significant impact here even providing improved contrast sensitivity.
Varilux Digitime with Prevencia
Varilux Digitime lenses are also well suited for other near and intermediate vision activities such as reading a book, sewing, cooking, close work precision tasks, but they cannot be used for activities requiring clear distance vision such as driving.
Varilux Digitime lenses combined with Crizal Prevencia can help prevent premature eye ageing by selectively filtering out harmful UV and blue-violet light whilst providing optimal vision.
