We live on the go, hyper connected. With more than 100,0002 movements per day our eyes need to do extra efforts to maintain sharpness while we are in motion.

Introducing Varilux® XR seriesTM, the first eye-responsive progressive lens3 that provides instant sharpness even in motion4.


Varilux® XR series™ is the first eye-responsive progressive lens³ powered by behavioral artificial intelligence.⁵

Beyond prescription and eye physiology the design now considers visual behavior, a prerequisite for fast and precise eye movements.

9/10 WEARERS4:



Perceived instant sharpness at all distances, even in motion4



Felt more reactive and confident when moving6



Felt adapted by the first day7

POWERED BY behavioral artificial intelligence⁵

More than 1 million data from exclusive research, wearer test in real-life, wearer behavioral and postural measurements in store were computed and analyzed.

Therefore, for every single wearer prescription, the visual behavior profile⁸ is predicted to design a progressive lens that respects the natural eye movements.

XR-motionTM technology

The XR-motion technology allows the optimization of both lenses according to the visual behavior profile of the patient through two major optimizations:

  • taking binocular vision to the next level
  • precise positioning of the focus zones

+49% volume of broadband vision vs Varilux® X Series lens⁹

A new criterion, named volume of broadband vision, calculates the 3D area where the wearer can benefit from a highly sharp vision on any visual target, even while moving, with a seamless ocular navigation between 30cm and infinity.10
