Discover what makes Varilux®
a trusted brand

A PIONEER From the start

In I959, Bernard Maitenaz, a young engineer at Société des Lunetiers, that would later become Essilor, had a groundbreaking idea that would change the lives of 40-plussers across the world, starting with his own father. The first Varilux® progressive lens was born.

Since then, Varilux® has continued revolutionizing optics, driven by a relentless commitment to quality and leadership in progressive lens technology.
