Due to the higher complexity of our visual environment, Progressive Addition Lens (PAL) users can encounter various adaptation challenges.
Essilor discovered that people facing near-vision challenges can overcome these issues by using a PAL that offers greater postural flexibility, to:
• better keep up with their active lifestyles;
• allow them to frequently change positions during a prolonged visual task.
Essilor, dedicated to innovation, reaffirms its leadership in this comfort territory with a new generation of mid-range premium PAL offer: Varilux® Comfort Max lens. Supported by Flex Optim™ technology, this new lens design provides PAL users a stretched useful vision zone and a broader range of head movements.
Essilor R&D’s avatar simulations gave a first assessment of Varilux® Comfort Max lens performances in virtual environments.
Then, wearer tests confirmed that:
• Varilux® Comfort Max lens design obtained high grades for distance, near and intermediate vision, making it a good all-around progressive lens.
• Even people who had not worn a PAL before gave Varilux® Comfort Max lenses a very high rating.
