1. Wavefront Technology
After years of research, Varilux has developed an innovative design and -which literally
corrects progressive manufacturing process-W.A.V.E. Technology vision to deliver the sharpest
Sharp vision has two key components: Visual acuity and contrast sensitivity.
By dramatically reducing or eliminating higher order aberrations, Varilux Physio delivers an
improvement in contrast sensitivity-the ability to see visual details and colors--by up to 30%.
Varilux Physio is the only lens proven to increase contrast sensitivity in all fields of vision.
Varilux Physio improves contrast sensitivity by helping patients in day to day situations as:
- Driving at night
- Reading the newspaper
- Experiencing the vivid colors in a bouquet of flowers
The result is an advanced general-purpose lens that delivers unsurpassed progressive performance
to all presbyopes. Bring patients even closer to "real world" vision with optimal clarity,
depth and dimension with Varilux Physio.
What is TRIVEX lens material?

Weight. This breakthrough in technology is specifically designed
to deliver the most comprehensive performance of any lens material,
It meets and exceeds ANSI and FDA standards, including high
impact requirements of ANSI Z87.1. It also features excellent optics
with its 43 Abbe Value. Having tremendous impact resistance with
excellent optics Trivex is a perfect lens material for children.
This lens material has excellent scratch resistance and chemical
resistance (unaffected by common chemicals). With new styles of
glasses, trivex is recommended for high fashioned drill mount frames.
Trivex can have an edge finish called “Roll and Polish”
that will give a jewel like appearance. This jewel like appearance
provides a clean sophisticated look to any pair of glasses! Trivex

Who Can Wear Transitions® Lenses?
Everyone who needs protection from glare and UV rays can benefit
from Transitions Lenses. They are appropriate for children, adults
and patients with special eyecare needs. The tint level of Transitions
Lenses adjusts quickly as light conditions change to provide convenient
protection from glare and 100% blockage of harmful UV rays. During
recent testing among eyecare professionals, 80% say they will recommend
Transitions Lenses to patients of all ages.*
Children & Transitions Lenses
It’s never too early to start caring for your children’s
eyes. Children are excellent candidates for Transitions Lenses.
It is estimated that 80% of total lifetime exposure to UV rays occurs
before age 18. Children are more susceptible to UV radiation because
their eyes continue to develop into the teen years. Children also
require safe, shatter-resistant lens materials. Transitions Lenses
are the perfect solution – available in sturdy, lightweight,
shatter-proof materials. Transitions Lenses provide the convenience
of automatic protection by blocking 100% of harmful UV rays. They
also offer increased comfort by reducing eye strain and fatigue.
Transitions Lenses help you instill a lifetime of Healthy Sight
habits by promoting good eye health in children.
Patients with Special Needs
Certain people develop a heightened sensitivity to light, known
as photosensitivity, and are more susceptible to visible light.
Photosensitivity can develop with conditions, such as diabetes or
recent eye surgery. The condition can also be caused by taking certain
prescription medications. Some medications, even those used to treat
conditions not related to vision, can cause the eyes to be more
susceptible to damage from UV rays. During product testing, eyecare
professionals were asked if Transitions Lenses seemed a good choice
for people with specific visual needs. After wearing the lenses
for two weeks, the number of professionals who answered “yes”
increased by more than 10 times.* Patients with special needs are
excellent candidates for Transitions Lenses.
Protection from glare and UV rays is important for the comfort
and quality of your vision today. It’s also important for
long-term care of your eyes. It’s never too late to help protect
against the cumulative effects of UV rays, which can lead to eye
conditions that compromise the quality of your vision.
