Varilux lenses offer sharper vision within arm’s reach

In today’s ever-changing and digitally connected world, we are faced with a multitude of near-vision tasks. For those suffering with presbyopia, which is the age-related loss of the ability to see objects up close, simple day-to-day activities may be difficult to complete. However, those that wish to maintain their active lifestyles without being limited by their vision can see clearer with the Varilux X Series lens by Essilor, available at Elmquist Eye Group.

Presbyopia occurs when the normally pliable natural lens of the eye stiffens, which makes it harder for the eye to focus on objects up close. Although a normal process of aging for those typically over the age of 40, presbyopia can cause headaches, eye strain and greater difficulty completing tasks that were once easy. Affecting millions of adults across the country, this condition can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses or surgery.

Adults experiencing the symptoms of presbyopia often benefit from the use of progressive lenses. Standard progressive lenses gradually transition to enable the wearer to see near, mid-range and far distances, however, wearers are easily frustrated by having to constantly adjust their heads to see the object they desire. The new Varilux X Series progressive lens eliminates this irritation by enabling the wearer to see a range of distances through any point in the near and intermediate zones, a feature that significantly extends the wearer’s vision and improves visual performance for tasks within arm’s reach.

Whether reading a book at home, transitioning between your computer and cell phone at work, or operating your vehicle, eyeglass lens wearers are performing a wide range of activities that are close at hand, many of which are done simultaneously. The Varilux X Series is designed to provide vision of multiple near distances between approximately 16 and 28 inches, ensuring sharper, crisper vision while optimizing the wearers’ ability to multi-task. Utilizing advanced Xtend Technology, the lens meets the near vision needs of today’s eyeglass wearers by providing an extended range of sharper vision, which eliminates the need for wearers to make adjustments to see clearly.
