Essilor X Design Varifocal Lenses Review From Colin Strain

I’ve used varifocal lenses in my glasses for over 20 years now, and had my frames reglazed with changing prescriptions, giving me a lengthy experience of the process.  Never, however, have the process, and the resultant lenses been both so easy and rewarding as my recent dealings with Reglaze Glasses 4 U.

I had had new lens types suggested to me at the time of my most recent prescription, along with new frames, and this led me to look into what was available. 

Consequently, I came across the website of Catherine Ibberson’s very helpful Reglaze Glasses 4 U.  Not only did she provide copious helpful advice about the end-to-end process of reglazing, but it was also very informative about the respective benefits of the various lens technologies in the market.

This information was crucial to making an informed choice for my newly reglazed glasses, and removed a lot of the mystery behind the various technologies for me.  I was immediately attracted to Essilor’s Varilux X series lens technology as a major advancement over any other premium lenses I had previously encountered.  I decided that since I already had some barely used frames, this time I would invest in the lenses instead, and I am so glad that I did so.

They are not the cheapest on the market, but having taken the plunge to try them following Catherine’s helpful guidance, I can say that they are worth every penny to me.  I don’t think I’ve ever experienced varifocals that are so vividly clear in all areas.  Moreover, once I re-adapted to the reduction in head movement that varifocal wearers will recognise, I now find that using them is a dream.  I can move my eyes instead of my head and my sight remains in focus.  So much so that it’s like I’m not wearing glasses at all and I find myself wearing them constantly without the need to remove them at any time.  Just fabulous lenses.  Of course, no doubt the Crizal Prevencia coating adds to the visual delight, removing blue light and glare, whilst protecting against cataract forming UV light, something someone of my age needs to seriously think about.

Throughout the process of selection, ordering and delivery, I cannot praise Catherine’s personal service too highly.  She goes out of her way to ensure every detail is attended to, with supporting guidance when making your choices.  She ensures that at every stage you are kept well informed, and handles any little query you may have personally and immediately, and at all times she ensures that the care of your glasses are every bit as critical to her as if they were her own.  As I have already remarked, I cannot praise this personal service too much.  It makes all the difference.

Reglaze Glasses 4U are more than a spectacles specialist, they are a much needed personal touch and breath of fresh air amongst the corporate smog! Catherine not only pays meticulous attention to your vision requirements and requests, she actually cares very much about the ophthalmic health of all her customers, which in the modern age of constant exposure to high colour temperature LED bulbs, smartphones and tablets is of priceless value to our general health as well.

Her communication and interpersonal skills are second to none, so don’t be afraid to query or request anything – no detail is too small, and no need is too great. Catherine is a visionary in the world of vision – a cut above the rest – and I am so thankful for having first discovered the Reglaze Glasses 4U website and then having reached out to Catherine. However you came to visit this website, you absolutely found the right place. Welcome – now sit back and let Reglaze amaze and take care of you.

What about the eye measurements?

I never guess or estimate eye measurements, I use the accurate PD eye measurement that is already in your existing lenses. If it’s a new frame, it’s not a problem. You can include an old pair of glasses for me to read the correct PD eye measurement from, then I’ll use it along with your up to date prescription ensuring your lenses are made up correctly. I often ask for a close-up photo of the new frame being worn if it’s varofocal lenses. This is just for confirmation, but is also a big help so I can see for myself if one eye is higher than the other. This is sometimes the case as very few of us are completely symmetrical.

PD MeasurementsIf it’s a first pair of glasses I’ll talk you through the straight forward process of doing eye measurements. So no matter what your needs are, the whole process is normally pretty easy and worry free.

Personally, I find it a bit alarming to see that some sites will just give an average PD eye measurement of around 64mm. My PD for example is only 59, yours could be 69. None of us are average where eyes are concerned. I liken it to buying shoes.The fit has to be accurate or the shoes are uncomfortable. The exact same applies to lenses. Who’d go into a shoe shop and ask for an average size pair of shoes?

You can find more information and a video on eye measurements, known as PD measurements in this video.


A Brilliant Service

My wife and I have used Catherine for several years now and are delighted with the service she provides. Her products are the best you can get, at a price you can’t beat. But the things that really sets Catherine apart is her home, friendly and expert service- spending as much time as you need to ensure you get exactly the result you would like. I can’t recommend Catherine highly enough.

Can I get new lenses put into Sports Glasses, Cycling Glasses or Skiing Goggles?

Absolutely, we put prescription lenses into inserts for Sports and Cycling Glasses, as well as Skiing Goggles from just £35 – £95  and £95 for Polycarbonate or Trivex Single Vision Lenses.



I’ve been an unhappy and sadly to say a rather lazy customer of a high street chain. I won’t recount the problems other than to say that on one occasion, my glasses were returned with both my and someone else’s prescription lenses in one frame.

After a recent eye test, I decided it was time to act and after much online research I came across Catherine’s website or perhaps I should say Catherine herself who did figure prominently on the site. I telephoned and guess what, she personally answered – wow! you don’t get that personal response very often these days.She was most helpful and I immediately knew that I had made the right choice.

My old frames were dispatched and the following morning, I received a call from her. My prescription was a little less straightforward because I have some complications and I also wanted very light lenses. During my dealings with her, I received many calls keeping me updated with both the options and progress.

Today the re-glazed glasses arrived and they were just perfect. I hadn’t used these frames for a few years and when I tried them on, it was immediately obvious why I chose them originally. I now have my expensive, older and very comfortable frames back but now with the latest new ultra-light lenses. I’m rather happy …….all thanks of course to Catherine.

Blue Light Blocking Lenses

I found Catherine online after searching for Blue light blocking prescription lenses. A superb speedy service from start to finish. The re glazing service went smoothly, and I am really happy with the new lenses. Thank you both for your time and I will be happy to recommend your services to all.


 Specialist Varifocal Service


I reglaze many frames with single vision and bifocal lenses, but specialize in Varifocal Lenses. Premium Wide Vision Varifocal Lenses and new for 2019 Superior V5 EXceed Freeform Digital Varifocal Lenses. Both of which are excellent varifocal lenses, have proved to be very successful and among our more popular lenses.

The Premium Wide Vision Varifocal Lenses are designed to be flatter and slimmer resulting in comfortable, functional viewing in all areas of the lenses. The design of the lenses utilises the most advanced technology to give a wider field of vision than the very basic varifocal lenses that are available on the market. Very good for general everyday wear with light computer use.

The Superior V5 EXceed Freeform Digital Varifocal Lenses are the Very Latest Digital Lenses, new for 2019, customized with Digital Precision for each individual prescription. Guarantee’s improved accuracy, higher definition and colour contrast, improved reading area, lightweight materials, asphericity, softer design, scratch and impact resistance. Very good for general everyday wear with light to moderate light computer use.

If wearing varifocal lenses for several hours a day for computer use, I’d highly recommend the Essilor X Design Varifocal lenses with Crizal Prevencia Blue Light Protection, or for top quality lenses without the top branded prices, the EXceed are still an excellent option.


With Essilor’s ground breaking new technology, the X Design are their most advanced progressive lens available. In addition to providing sharp vision and smooth transitions at any distance, it extends your vision within arm’s reach, so you no longer have to tilt or angle your head to find your focus. Designed for everyday general wear, so distance vision for driving and general wear is excellent, but close and mid vision for computer also has high priority, focusing on digital comfort, less eye strain, clarity and digital precision.




Here in Essilor’s own words.

“The first varifocal providing total visual freedom. Varilux X series is the first varifocal lens to dramatically reduce head movement and ensure that your vision is as natural as possible for every day activities within arm’s reach and beyond. Varilux X series is the best varifocal we’ve ever designed.Your posture and the way you look at things up close have changedx series. You’re now drinking coffee while texting the kids, sending an email via a tablet on the train or checking your social news feed every other hour. In short, everything that matters today happens within arm’s reach. Before now, no varifocal lens has been designed to accommodate these modern day behaviours and therefore you had to, ‘point your nose to where you want to look at’.Varilux X series removes this limitation through its ‘Xtend’ technology. You will no longer need to move your head to see clearly.”


Don’t just take my word for it though…….. See our reviews from my varifocal wearers, they are all very happy with their lenses) My aim is always to give the clearest and most comfortable vision possible. Hence, I do not supply any of the very basic designs of varifocal lenses. These very basic lenses are quite a lot cheaper, and sometimes offered for free on the high street, but need to be bought with caution as they tend to cause more peripheral distortion, a smaller reading area, and give a poorer standard of vision all around. Generally speaking, the better quality the varifocal lenses are, the clearer and more comfortable the vision is. I strongly advise to buy the best varifocal lenses that your budget can stretch to, it really does make a difference to your vision.



Fantastic Service and Knowledge!

I have been considering getting a good quality pair of blue light blocking glasses in my prescription for a long time so when I found Catherine’s website on a search I was instantly impressed by the knowledge she had.After talking to Catherine about my requirements.

I ended up ordering 3 pairs of glasses (short sighted ones, reading ones and clear ones for when wearing my contact lenses). I was nervous about buying online, especially as I had to leave the design of two pair of the frames up to Catherine. However she totally understands what style I liked and chose pairs that i love! In addition to this she managed to meet an incredibly tight deadline I had (leaving the country 10 days later) and I received the glasses with a day to spare. This was no small feat with the complicated prescription I have.I HIGHLY recommend Catherine’s services and have already recommended her to my friends and family. You will not be disappointed.
