Edmonds & Slatter Opticians have been awarded Essilor's Varilux Gold Specialist accreditation, achieved as a result of our understanding and appreciation of progressive lens technology. We are committed to fitting the finest products available for the benefit of our customers' visual comfort.
Not all progressive addition lenses (PAL / Varifocals) are alike. It is essential that the correct product is chosen for the purpose for which it is intended, and then carefully fitted to ensure the dynamics of the lenses are fully utilized.
Varilux varifocal lenses are manufactured by Essilor. Essilor is the world's largest lens manufacturer with subsidiaries in over 50 countries, and first appeared in London over a century ago with the Société des Lunetiers. Since 1976 they have been based in Thornbury near Bristol.
As well as creating the first successful varifocal lens, Essilor were the first company to make plastic lenses under the trademark Orma. Recently, Essilor have also been involved in the design and production of variable tint lenses such as Transitions, the development of thinner and lighter lens materials and reflection free coatings.
