Each patient's prescription and lens needs should be evaluated in person with an eyecare professional for appropriate lens recommendations and fittings to be made.
Warranties on Varilux lenses may vary among eyecare professionals. It is important to understand warranties available to you from the eyecare professional you plan to purchase your lenses from. Before you purchase your lenses, be sure to ask about the specifics of warranty coverage.
No, Varilux lenses can fit virtually any frame size and shape. Your eyecare professional will assist you with selecting an appropriate frame for your prescription and fitting needs.
Your eyecare professional is an excellent source of information about Varilux lenses and their specific applications to your individual prescription and lifestyle. If you have not done so within the last year, Essilor recommends having a comprehensive eye exam prior to ordering your new Varilux lenses.
The best way to clean your lenses is by first rinsing them under warm running water to remove any sandy/gritty debris, clean with a mild liquid dishwashing soap to remove facial oils, rinse with water, and then dry with a soft cotton cloth. Finish by polishing your lenses with a microfiber cleaning cloth. You can also use a cleaning cloth for touch-up cleaning throughout the day when it is not convenient to wash the lenses. And while your lenses usually incorporate a scratch-resistant coating, you should always store them in a case as a precaution. Avoid exposing your lenses to excessive heat and temperatures for long periods (like on your car's dashboard, for instance).
WEARING VARILUX LENSES
Most people will enjoy their Varilux lenses right away, while others may take a bit longer to become completely comfortable. Let your eyecare professional know if your adjustment period is longer than two weeks, as a “fine-tuning” frame adjustment may be all that’s necessary.
Yes. Progressive lenses will introduce some changes to your peripheral vision due to power changes that occur in the periphery of the lenses. You may feel an initial difference in your peripheral vision that may require some slight changes in horizontal head and eye movements. Sensitivity to this area of the lens will diminish as you become more accustomed to the lenses. Varilux® X Series™ lenses with Xtend™ Technology significantly reduce this head movement and also feature Nanoptix™ Technology, which further reduces distortion.
To adjust quickly and comfortably:
- Start wearing your new glasses immediately.
- Wear your new glasses continuously.
- Wear glasses as close to your face as possible.
For most, this period of adaptation will only last a few hours. Some people may require several days or even two weeks before becoming completely comfortable. If you have been wearing your lenses for two weeks or longer and feel uncomfortable with your vision in any way, contact your eyecare professional for an evaluation.

Progressive lenses allow you to see all distances clearly in a continuous field of vision with no lines.
Bifocal lenses provide a distinct near and far viewing area, but no intermediate area (1-2 feet away). The different viewing areas are separated by noticeable lines that can be awkward, abrupt, and frustrating. The intermediate zone is the most important zone where so much life happens.

Anyone who has presbyopia, including current bifocal and trifocal wearers, people using over-the-counter readers, or people unhappy with their current progressive lenses.
Presbyopia is an unavoidable age-related process that begins to gradually affect vision, usually after age 40. If you experience any of the situations below, you may be presbyopic, and it’s time to consult an eyecare professional for a comprehensive eye exam:
- You experience blurred vision when reading up close
- You find yourself holding reading material at arm's length
- You have trouble seeing in dim lighting, like reading a menu in a dark restaurant
- You experience eye strain, tired eyes, or headaches
