From research to lens design
Varilux Road Pilot sets a new standard for driving lenses. We were able to develop such a progressive lens by extensively observing and interviewing drivers. Research led us to discover presbyopic drivers require wide intermediate vision and distance vision and by minimising the near vision zone would mean less distortion for a comfortable driving experience.
Confidently offer your patients the ultimate driving comfort with the new Varilux Road Pilot.

Frequently Asked Questions
" Did a drive to and from Llanberis on Friday last week. About 6 1/2 hours driving and approximately 5 hours in the dark. Very comfortable. I would have doubted my visual comfort over and above my usual Varilux X4D's if it wasn't for my 3 passengers exclaiming when I had those brighter headlights coming towards me. I was fine - I could tell the lights were brighter and little uncomfortable compared to "standard" lights, but I was never "blinded" and was much more comfortable than my passengers. Would I put them on for a short journey in daylight instead of my Varilux X4D Transitions XTRActive's? I usually wouldn't make the effort for that. Do I put them on to drive at night? Every time. The only snag is that they are so comfortable to wear that I often forget and get several paces from the car before realising I need to swap back to my Varilux X4D's. "
