With a “mini” seminar on “optical technology” we explained to him the latest developments and proposals of the leading companies in the field and how they can be combined for quality and restful vision.
We showed him the samples of the Transitions lenses we have in our store with the self-adjusting shading technology, and he was excited, especially with the new XTRActive Polarized version, in which as they get darker they gradually become more polarized, cutting more and more the reflections from horizontal surfaces (road, sea, car dashboard, windshield).
He saw and understood immediately that these lenses rest the eyes, and of course he wanted that in his new glasses.
The simultaneous (in a pair) far, intermediate and near vision has, for years, been “solved” with multifocal designs in the lenses, but in the case of Mr. Vaggelis, who on the one hand has “easy” grades and on the other hand a small addition, no “exaggerations” were needed.
This is how we ended up with the new Essilor Varilux Comfort MAX multifocal lenses, which, through a statistical study of vision positions and reading postures and using Flex Optim technology, emphasize medium and near vision without altering distance vision.
In fact, we chose the full custom F360 Precal version and the latest Crizal Sapphire HR anti-scratch reinforced anti-reflective coatings.
Mr. Vaggelis, for the dual use of his glasses as both prescription and sunglasses due to the Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses, chose Ray-Ban’s Octagonal metal frame, which anyway is sold both as prescription and as sunglasses by Ray-Ban itself.
After 20 days of waiting, since they were special order and made in France, we received the lenses, ground them and pozitioned them on the Ray-Ban frame and… ready!
The 1st pair of Essilor Varilux Comfort MAX F360 Crizal Sapphire HR in Greece is a fact!
Enjoy them, Mr. Vaggelis!
