Leica, the German optics manufacturer, has launched a new version of its customized progressive lenses, called Variovid Volterra Continuum, which increase dimensional accuracy. Novacel, a French company that operates one of the largest lens laboratories in Europe, won the Silmo d’Or in September 2019 for Leica Eyecare’s Variovid Volterra progressive lens, the licensed line, which shared one of the largest stands at the Silmo show in Paris last year. The new lens, which claims to reduce optical aberrations by 50 to 65 percent, has been on the market since October 2019 and is Leica Eyecare’s premium product.
