How do I know that I have genuine Varilux lenses?
Varilux lenses are supplied from the manufacturing laboratory with a Varilux Certificate of Authenticity (COA) card. If you do not receive a COA card with your Varilux lenses, please consult your Eyecare Professional.
Which Varilux lenses are right for me?
Each patient's prescription and lens needs should be evaluated in person with an Eyecare Professional for appropriate lens recommendations and fittings to be made.
What is the warranty on my Varilux lenses?
Warranties on Varilux lenses may vary among Eyecare Professionals. It is important to understand warranties available to you from the Eyecare Professional you plan to purchase your lenses from. Before you purchase your lenses, be sure to ask about the specifics of warranty coverage.
Will I be limited in my frame selection?
No, Varilux lenses can fit virtually any frame size and shape. Your Eyecare Provider will assist you with selecting an appropriate frame for your prescription and fitting needs.
How can I obtain more information about Varilux lenses?
Our helpful guide for talking to your Eyecare Professional is available to print, email or text so you can easily take it along to your appointment to help start the conversation. Your Eyecare Professional is an excellent source of information about Varilux lenses and their specific applications to your individual prescription and lifestyle. If you have not done so within the last year, Essilor suggests having a complete eye exam prior to ordering your new Varilux lenses.
Are there any special guidelines for taking care of Varilux lenses?
The best way to clean your lenses is by first rinsing your lenses under warm, running water to remove any sandy/gritty debris, clean with a mild liquid dishwashing soap to remove facial oils, rinse with water and then dry with a soft cotton cloth. Finish by polishing your lenses with a microfiber cleaning cloth. You can also use a cleaning cloth for touch-up cleaning throughout the day when it is not convenient to wash the lenses. And while your lenses usually incorporate a scratch-resistant coating, you should always store your lenses in a case as a precaution. Avoid exposing your lenses to excessive heat and temperatures for long periods (like on your car's dashboard, for instance).
