Mehta Opticians are one of the only premium Essilor retailers in Powys and Mid-Wales.

Essilor has been innovating long before its inception in 1972. Its' two parent companies, Essel and Silor have been responsible for some of the most significant opthalmic innovations of modern times, including the Nylor and the Varilux, both of which are still sold today.


Now the largest ophthalmic lens manufacturer in the world, Essilor's formidable research and development department continues to defend its place at the very forefront of premium quality ophthalmic lens technology.


If you've ever worn varifocals before, you'll know the uncomfortable, limiting experience of having to 'point your nose' at what you want to look at.

This is because in traditional varifocals, each section of the lens has just one focal point, meaning that you need to move the lens to accommodate the object that you're seeing.

Essilor's revolutionary Varilux X Series cross-optimises its nanoptix elements by clusters in seven, so that each area of the lens can accommodate multiple focal points within a single gaze.

In a recent consumer survey of 2742 people, the new Varilux X Series achieved a satisfaction rating of 95% and a monumental 9/10 people said they no longer felt that they needed to move their head to see clearly in near and far distances. The Varilux X-Series is a lens that is significantly easier to wear than previous generations of varifocals. If you've had difficulty wearing varifocals before, the Varilux X-Series is the lens for you.
