Novacel with Variovid Volterra bags the award for the best lens at the Silmo d’Or 2019
Leica Eyecare’s VARIOVID VOLTERRA progressive lens with ÉO-TECH® Technology won the award for the best lens.
This disruptive and revolutionary technology reduces optical aberrations by 50% to 65%. By applying the mathematical series of Vito Volterra (Italian mathematician 1860-1940) in the calculation of lens design we have created the first (equalizer) of optical surfaces, which gives wearers the feeling of wearing single vision lenses. The Volterra series have been mainly used in other areas (such as acoustics), but have never been used in optics.
