Nanoptix: The Revolution in Lens Technology

During Varilux S series calculation, Nanoptix entirely reengineers the fundamental structure of the lenses to reduce swim effect. Nanoptix
Along this process, Nanoptix breaks the lens into thousands of tiny elements to stabilize beamdeviation:
- As both Base curve & Power impact beam deviation, their combination is optimized for each element.
- The Base of the front face of each element is calculated to compensate the effect of poweron deviation: Base curve decreases as Power increases to stabilize beam deviation all over the lens.
- All the elements are connected as a unique lens to correct the wearer prescription without generating swim effect.

Nanoptix draws on the latest advances in optics to virtually eliminate swim effect.

Up to 90%* of swim effect reduction through Varilux S series compared to main premium lenses.

* Swim effect based on beam deviation anaylsis. 90% represent maximum gain extracted from all analyzed lenses. Varilux S design vs Varilux Physio 2.0 and 6 premium competitors progressive products. Per product: 4 prescriptions analyzed from -3 add2 to +2.5 add2. In lab R&D testing, 2011.

Simulation of vision through Varilux S series and a standard progressive lens.

This movie below compares Varilux S Series lens with a standard progressive lens.

It shows how Nanoptix impacts the lens itself and thus vision in the stairs which is one of the most critical situation for the wearer.

When the addition is increasing, rays are deviated on a standard progressive lens while they are under control on Varilux S Series lens thanks to Nanoptix.

It provides a different experience for the wearer. Stairs look curved through a standard progressive while they remain straight with Varilux S Series.
