Specsavers launches varifocal range for safety eyewear

October 2012

Customers of Specsavers Corporate Eyecare can now choose from a range of varifocal lenses for their safety eyewear.

Until now, safety eyewear customers who require varifocal lenses have typically only been provided with a choice of standard varifocal designs. This can present adaptation problems if the customer usually wears a different lens category in their everyday glasses. Specsavers Corporate Eyecare is, however, now launching a full range of varifocal lenses for use in its safety eyewear. Customers can upgrade from Standard varifocal lenses to options from the Premium, Elite or Tailor Made categories, taking advantage of the latest technologies in lens design.

Varifocal lenses combine three different prescriptions in one clear lens. This allows the wearer to see clearly at all distances, without having to remove or change glasses. For those who use varifocal lenses in their everyday life and are required to wear safety eyewear at work, this is an important advance. Obviously being able to see clearly at all distances and refocus quickly over near, middle and far range, is vital to anyone working in a hazardous environment.

Jim Lythgow, director of strategic alliances at Specsavers Corporate Eyecare, says: "People are rightly choosy about the lenses they have in their everyday spectacles. Considering the significance of safety eyewear and the tasks people may be executing while wearing them, it is crucial that they are provided with eyewear that is well fitted, comfortable to wear and provides the best possible vision. We are delighted to be able to bring these extra options to our corporate customers."

  • Premium varifocal lenses have a wider field of clear vision at distance and intermediate than standard lenses and are easier to adapt to.
  • Elite varifocal lenses have a wide field of clear vision at distance, intermediate and near, with minimal soft focus, and are very easy to adapt to.
  • Tailor-made varifocal lenses are the highest quality lens. Latest technology gives excellent clarity and the widest field of clear vision at distance, intermediate and near. They are easiest to adapt to.
