Essilor Lenses

Richmond Eye Optical is proud to now offer the Essilor lens portfolio, including Varilux®, Crizal®, Eyezen+, XPERIO UV™, and Transitions®.

Xperio UV Polarized Prescription Sun Lenses

Xperio UV polarized prescription sun lenses protect against UV damage, glare, scratches, smudges, dust and water for the best visions under the sun. With an E-SPF® index of 50+, they provide 50 times more UV protection than going without eyewear.

Varilux® Progressive Lenses

Starting around age 40, you might have trouble focusing on nearby objects or reading in dim light. This is called presbyopia and is a natural part of aging. Varilux® progressive lenses are designed for people aged 40+, offering sharp vision at every distance with seamless transitions from near to far. There are up to 30 patents in one single Varilux® lens, and Varilux XR lenses can predict how you look at the world, so you experience instant sharpness in motion and seamless switches from near to far.

Transitions® Light Intelligent Lenses™

Transitions® Light Intelligent Lenses™ seamlessly adapt to changing light situations, darkening when outdoors and returning to clear when indoors. All Transitions® lenses protect your eyes from UV rays and help filter blue-violet light1. Available in a range of colors and mirror finishes.

Eyezen® Start Lenses

Eyezen® Start lenses are optimized single vision lenses designed to relax your eyes. The whole lens surface is optimized according to object distance and gaze direction, bringing correction throughout the lens and reducing distortions and aberrations. It comes with blue light blocking built into the lens to help diminish eye fatigue from devices.

Crizal® Anti-Reflective Coating

Crizal® anti-reflective coating not only protects your vision from scratches and smudges but also reduces front, back, and lateral reflections.

Silhouette frames and sunglasses represent the state of the art in eyewear. The registered opticians at each Richmond Eye Optical location (Innsbrook, Mechanicsville, and Midlothian) have a variety of Silhouette frames in stock, and they will be glad to demonstrate this excellent product to you. Key features of Silhouette frames and sunglasses include:

  • Titan Minimal Art frames are made of hyper-flex titanium. This material is hypoallergenic, particularly break-proof, and extremely light.
  • An ideal frame fit is achieved by the gentle, smooth curvature of the temples which provides a light and even contact pressure generated by the dynamic spring zone of elastic temples. The pressure of the frames is almost imperceptible.
  • A wide variety of frame and lens shapes are available, in a wide variety of colors. The Titan Minimal Art frames feature a completely rimless design, making the lenses themselves nearly invisible. Visit the Silhouette website to see an interactive display of frames and colors.
  • Over four million pairs of Titan Minimal Art frames have been sold around the world.
  • Silhouette’s sunglasses have brown lenses which filter 96.5% of harmful blue light.
  • Silhouette frames carry an excellent warranty.
