Essilor Bows Visual Fatigue Lenses




DALLAS—Essilor of America is launching Essilor Visual Fatigue Solutions lenses to address the symptoms of Visual Fatigue Syndrome (VFS). The line will debut with two new products, Essilor Anti-Fatigue lenses and Essilor Computer lenses.

“The launch of Essilor Visual Fatigue Solutions is the culmination of years of research and development,” said Jon Torrey, vice president of computer vision for Essilor of America. “We have created the best lens on the market for fighting the symptoms of VFS.”

Essilor Anti-Fatigue lenses are intended as a primary-pair replacement for patients’ single vision lenses. They feature a special “Power Boost” area in the lower portion of the lens to give the wearer’s eyes greater clarity and comfort when focusing up-close for extended periods.

Essilor Computer lenses are recommended for presbyopes experiencing symptoms of visual fatigue and are intended as a second pair to complement the wearer’s primary pair of progressive lenses. The lenses do not require any special ordering procedures and can be ordered like any other progressive lenses, according to Essilor.

Essilor Computer lenses offer clear vision at full distance. A larger intermediate area creates a more relaxed, comfortable visual experience, with no head tipping required to find the correct intermediate power.
