Essilor Lanka, the Sri Lankan office of the world leader in prescription lenses Essilor, has introduced two cutting edge spectacle lenses to the local market – Essilor Essentials and Transitions Signature GEN 8.
Essilor Essentials is the new mid-range lens of the brand that is affordable for everyone and ideal for everyday wear. Essilor Essentials are available in two types according to the individual’s lifestyle – Everyday and Active. These patented Full Back Surface (FBS) progressive lenses are comfortable and easy to wear. The Essilor Essentials range is available with Crizal coatings that protect against scratches, dust, smudges, water, and reflections. The lenses also block reflected, back surface UV. The range also includes Essilor Essentials Accord with a specially enhanced mid-distance zone and Essilor Essentials Assent a soft, balanced design for easy wear.
Transitions Signature GEN 8 lenses are the result of a 5-year effort by Essilor’s Transitions Optical organisation to deliver the optimum light intelligent lens for patients. Their research indicated that patients do not want only a single dimension of performance such as speed or darkness as they wanted them all in one lens. These lenses combine a disruptive nanocomposite matrix and a new generation of ultra-agile photochromic dyes for improved performance without sacrificing any one dimension of performance.
N.S Raghavan- Country Manager, Essilor Group stated, “Vision disorders are a global problem and can range from minor discomfort to serious medical conditions. At Essilor, through our wide range of vision products and solutions, we aim to protect and correct the vision of everyone affected. Essilor is committed to providing solutions and protecting the vision of over 7.4 billion people worldwide.

Essilor Essentials is a mid-range lens which makes it affordable for everyone for everyday wear. Transitions Signature GEN8 is Transitions’ fastest lens providing all the benefits patients want. Using a multidimensional approach, these lenses deliver a new frontier of performance, without sacrificing any level of performance.”
