Unmatched Technological Advancements

Essilor's commitment to pushing the boundaries of lens technology has solidified its position as the world's number-one lens company. Let's delve into some of their remarkable innovations:


The Varilux Transitions lenses from Essilor have revolutionised the way we perceive vision. These lenses seamlessly adapt to changing light conditions, providing optimal visual comfort and protection. With Transitions lenses, our clients can enjoy clear vision indoors and outdoors, reducing eye strain and enhancing their overall visual experience.


The Varilux series, a pinnacle of cutting-edge progressive lenses by Essilor, caters to the diverse needs of wearers. Varilux lenses offer crisp and clear vision at all distances, eliminating the need for multiple pairs of glasses and facilitating a seamless transition between near and far vision.


Xperio Polarised

Essilor's Xperio lenses redefine outdoor vision. By minimising glare and enhancing colour perception, these polarised lenses enable our clients to enjoy vibrant and distortion-free visuals even in the brightest sunlight. Xperio lenses provide superior visual comfort and protect against harmful UV rays, making them the ideal choice for outdoor enthusiasts.

Stellest Myopia Control

Essilor's Stellest lenses address the growing concern of myopia in children. Incorporating innovative Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments (D.I.M.S.) technologies, Stellest lenses correct vision while slowing down myopia progression. By choosing Stellest lenses, parents can proactively preserve their children's visual health.
