Essilor Anti-Fatigue Lenses (Relief to Hard-Working Eyes)
Essilor Anti-Fatigue is a new generation of advanced prescription lenses that give relief to hard-working eyes in addition to correcting their vision.
When to Use:
- Patients between the age of 20 and 45 (pre-presbyopic age)
- Patients that spend more than 3 hours a day working at close range e.g. reading, computer work etc.
- Patients that complain about experiencing visual fatigue whether they wear prescription spectacles or not.
Features and Benefits:
- The patented Essilor Anti-Fatigue design supports the wearer’s accommodation efforts and thus relieves visual fatigue.
- A slight built-in variation in power (+0.60 D) to support the wearer’s accommodation for close range tasks throughout the day.
- The lens provides much greater comfort than a standard single vision correction, as the wearers’ natural accommodation pattern is retained.
Essilor Anti-Fatigue lenses completely replace standard prescription lenses whatever the patient’s ametropia, without changing their natural behavior, whether they are permanent or occasional wearers. What’s more, Essilor Anti-Fatigue lenses come with Crizal Aliz, a coating for greater transparency and better contrast.
