Varilux® Comfort Max lenses utilize a new design approach that focuses on maximizing the patient's useful vision zone, not just providing the largest area of 20/20 vision (i.e. normal resolution). This approach - often called 20/Happy Vision—goes beyond normal resolution to take into account factors like contrast, binocularity and distortion. By maximizing 20/Happy vision, wearers can use a greater area of the lens, experiencing postural flexibility for all day long vision comfort. For more information, download the attached sales aid.
