Lenses 101 - Varilux Physio

In 2004, Essilor introduced the Varilux Physio to the world with the original W.A.V.E. technology that featured wider fields of vision than the Comfort, while also reducing visual distortion and "swim".


This progressive lens was a game-changer for low-light conditions, helping millions of patients see better; even when it's darker out.


Quickly becoming known for it's easy adaption by most presbyopes, it also continued the Comfort's methodology of providing a good balance for all 3 zones of vision and further solidified Varilux lenses as a brand patients associate with quality.


Essilor launched the Physio DRx in October of 2010 with the knowledge that design is everything with progressive addition lenses. This gave us a full backside version of the proven Physio design, offering clearer, sharper vision at every distance.


This was soon followed up with the introduction of the Physio Enhanced; which has now been upgraded to the Physio W3+.


These designs utilize Essilor’s proven Dual Optics design, allowing superior optics and wider fields of view. The W3+ incorporated W.A.V.E. Technology 2 giving sharper vision in all lighting conditions, and Binocular Booster, allowing patients to transition from near to far smoothly and effortlessly giving patients many benefits.
