FROM THE COVER
ESSILOR LAUNCHES A REVOLUTIONARY NEW PAL. The Varilux® S series, Essilor of America, Inc.’s new premium range of progressive addition lenses (PALs), comes in three new lens designs: Varilux S Design, Varilux S Fit, and Varilux S 4D. All lenses are backed by the revolutionary Nanoptix™ lens technology, which re-engineers the structure of the lens to virtually eliminate the swim effect that can occur in PALs. In addition, the lenses feature the SynchronEyes™ lens design which takes into account the physiological differences between the two eyes and calculates the lenses as a pair to ensure both eyes work together as one visual system to deliver expansive vision.
