Spectacle Lenses

Ellis and Killpartrick Lenses

Perfect for Every Activity

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.

Essilor XR Series

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® XR series™ is the first eye responsive varifocal lens.

Eye movement is multi-directional but a standard varifocal lens is designed to support linear eye movement, which can make it hard for eyes to change focus rapidly. The Varilux® XR series™ lens responds to the way your eyes really move, giving you a more natural vision experience.

The lens was developed with artificial intelligence, using 1 million data points from eyeglass wearers, so it can predict everyone’s visual behaviour.

To build your lenses, Essilor create a digital avatar of you and analyse it in a 3D environment that reproduces real-life scenarios. This process establishes your individual vision profile, which enables them to optimise the lens for your visual behaviour, not just your prescription.

Three exclusive Essilor technologies come together in this game-changing solution for presbyopia:

  • XR-motion™ optimises both lenses according to your prescription and your predicted visual behaviour, ensuring more fluid and sharp vision.
  • Nanoptix® smooths distortion at the periphery of the lens to minimize the unbalancing ‘swim’ sensation in dynamic situations, like walking up or down stairs.
  • Xtend® blends near and intermediate zones of the lens to provide clear vision at arm’s length.

In today’s digitally connected world, our eyes are working to process information like never before, moving over 100,000 times a day – continuously switching and checking while we’re on the go.

Varilux® XR series™ is a varifocal lens designed to respond to this evolution in our vision.

Lens Protective Treatments

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.
