Ellis & Killpartrick understand the correct lenses are crucial to deliver clear vision and comfortable spectacle wearing whatever the activity. We will give comprehensive advice on choosing the best lenses for specific tasks and combined with the latest measurement technology Ellis & Killpartrick deliver a product that meets every individual's needs.
Presbyopia is the clinical term for the gradual loss of flexibility of the focusing lens in the eye which starts to impact everyone’s reading ability between the ages of 45 to 50. Group lens designers have focused efforts on improving vision at arm’s length – reflecting the multitude of near vision tasks of today’s lifestyles. The Varilux® X series™ has been designed to meet the ever-changing expectations of Generation X, consumers born between 1965 and 1980, who are highly active, digitally connected and who don’t want to be limited by their vision. But it’s also a progressive lens that ensures quality vision at every distance for all active presbyopes.
By re-shaping a specific zone in the lens, it overcomes a typical frustration with many progressive lenses – having to adjust one’s head to find the right angle. The Varilux® X series™ lens is the result of innovation in lens design with Xtend™ technology which delivers additional benefits for today’s near vision demands. Combined with a new calculator Essilor is able to design each lens with greater precision than ever before taking into account multiple targets for one gaze direction.
X Design Synchroneyes takes into account the physiological differences between the two eyes and eye dominance to ensure maximised fields of vision. Each lens optimisation integrates the differences between the right and left prescription as well as the distance between pupils and binocular fields of vision are up to 50% wider.
There are many protective anti reflective treatments on the market, but latest research into age related macular degeneration (AMD) suggests the most damaging light reaching the back of the eye is not UV but VISIBLE violet light. This new technology enables lenses to block a significant proportion of this short wavelength high energy light which scientists believe may help to slow the aging process leading to Age related Macular Degeneration (AMD) in the same way that sun block and sun creams protect our skin. Crizal Forte UV Prevenzia™ is the first clear lens on the market to maximize protection against UV and high energy visible light considering both front AND back surface of the lens, while ensuring the maximum clarity of vision.
