Essilor is the world’s leading manufacturer of corrective lenses. The company that is present in more than 100 countries, acts under the name Essilor since 1972 when two companies merged – Essel, founded in 1849, and Silor, founded in 1931.

Varilux® S-series progressive lenses are the most innovative multifocal lenses which unique production method ensures the most natural vision in all distances and gives the best end result also aesthetically.
The use of digital appliances has become part of our everyday work and personal life. This has brought upon changes in our habitual viewing and body postures and viewing distances.
Essilor has developed the Varilux® Digitime lens for close and middle distaces that meet our daily needs and reduce eye fatigue even when using smart devices for a longer period of time.
