The Most Natural Vision in a Small Frame

Until recently, progressive wearers are often limited to eyeglass frames that had to be a rather large size in order to accommodate all of the areas of focus in the lens. Essilor with our intensive research based on a study of small Frame wearers have overcome that difficulty by offering progressives that are more compact to fit into the small frames that are so fashionable.

Varilux Ellipse offers a small frame progressive solution for the stylish presbyopes. It is the first progressive lens which takes into account the natural visual behaviour of small frame wearers without compromising on comfort.
