Our Mission

At Varilux®, we think your age shouldn’t determine what you can or cannot do.

Studies show that people are more likely to refrain from certain activities because of society’s prejudice on age,
not because they can’t do it.

“Too old for…” Three words with the power to stop people from living life to the fullest. We’d like to get rid of them.

Every day, a major part of the 500 researchers working at Essilor®, are dedicated to Varilux® lenses, striving to help people maintain good sharp and effortless vision. So that their age won’t be a barrier keeping them from doing what they would like to do.

We are committed to changing society’s view on aging.
It’s up to you to decide if you want to jump, dance or go back to school, not your age nor your vision.
Join us to help change the preconceptions about age
and make it become just a number.


Aging in 4 facts

“ Exposure to negative age stereotypes can negatively affect performance of older adults. ”

Levy, Slade, Kunkel & Kassel, 2002

“ Aging self-stereotypes have a direct impact on physiological function. ”

Rylee A. Dionigi, 2015


Older individuals with more positive self- perceptions of aging, live 7.5 years longer than those with less positive self- perceptions of aging.

Levy, Slade, Kunkel & Kassel, 2002


Having positive self-perceptions about aging can yield numerous benefits, including increased functional health and longevity, as well as resistance to cardiovascular problems and hearing loss.

Levy, Slade, Kunkel & Kassel, 2002
