Historical Significance: Varilux is a brand name belonging to Essilor International, a producer of spectacle lenses. The brand is used to designate the first progressive lens to correct presbyopia, which was invented by Bernard Maitenaz. The Varilux lens is characterized by correcting near, intermediate and far vision. The first version of the lens was released in 1959. From sales of 6 000 lenses in 1959 to 2 000 000 in 1969, Varilux became a successful product.
