• CAPITOL Launches New Progressive Lens: Varilux X Series

    Capitol Optical launches Varilux X Series

    Xclusive Launch at CAPITOL

    Essilor has launched its latest innovation to enhance the visual experience of presbyopes – going one step further in understanding the evolving needs of wearers and putting them at the heart of its innovation process.

    Group designers have focused efforts on improving vision at arm’s length – reflecting the multitude of near vision tasks of today’s lifestyles. The Varilux® X series™ in particular has been designed to meet the ever-changing expectations of Generation X, consumers born between 1965 and 1980, who are highly active, digitally connected and don’t want to be limited by their vision. But it’s also a progressive lens that ensures quality vision at every distance for all active presbyopes.

    By re-shaping a specific zone in the lens, it overcomes a typical frustration with many progressive lenses – having to adjust one’s head to find the right angle. The Varilux® X series™ lens is the result of innovation in lens design with Xtend™ technology which delivers additional benefits for today’s near vision demands. Combined with a new calculator Essilor is able to design each lens with much greater precision taking into account multiple targets for one gaze direction.

    Nearly 3,000 presbyopes around the world participated in the development of the Varilux® X series™ through focus group interviews, video selfies and new methodologies of wearer testing including Essilor’s new HouseLab™ – a controlled home environment to observe and discuss wearer experiences.

    Capitol is proud to launch of Varilux® X series™ in Singapore, more than 100 eye care professionals locally have already begun to explore the benefits of this revolutionary progressive lens.
