Varilux Physio 2.0 Orma
The latest generation of Essilor Varilux lenses. It is actually a startling breakthrough, both in design and in manufacture; and it brings real benefits in performance. The improvement has been likened to the difference in quality between DVD and video picture. We call it 'High Resolution Vision' - clearer, sharper images with better contrast, wider areas of clear vision at mid distance, and better comfort for close work. The lens is designed in such a way that it corrects the shape of the light wave as it passes through the lens thus improving clarity of vision. High precision point by point manufacturing technology ensures that the design performance is retained whatever your prescription.
Varilux X Series varifocal lenses are the most advanced progressive lenses available in the market today and are for customers who want the latest technologies and premium products with the highest level of vision. 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 whilst offering superior clarity and a wide filed of view. Whatever the distance, whatever the situation, you will see the difference immediately. This is our elite varifocal choice and has been carefully selected to offer unrivalled clarity, the widest viewing area possible at all focal points including distance, intermediate and reading areas with almost no distortion around the edges.
