Luzerne Optical & Essilor will offer New Varilux Comfort lenses to help patients enjoy ease of vision throughout the day in every aspect of modern life.

The new lenses will offer quicker access to the reading area, 25 percent wider distance and near vision fields and improved performance for today’s digital devices and activities, such as MP3 players, navigation tools, laptops and netbooks.

“Now more than ever, people are transitioning between different fields of vision – near, far and intermediate – quicker, more often and for shorter periods of time,” said Carl Bracy, senior vice president of marketing, Essilor of America. “Essilor’s New Varilux Comfort lenses have been modernized to meet these new visual demands.”

Using Essilor’s proprietary Live Optics research and development process as well as Varilux Virtual Reality, Essilor scientists analyzed thousands of patients to determine the best way to improve upon the design. As a result, the progression length was shortened and the near vision and distance fields are wider by up to 25 percent with reduced astigmatism in the intermediate zone. New Varilux Comfort lenses offer even quicker access to the near vision zone, wider fields for relaxed vision during daily activities and reduced swim.
