New Varilux Consumer Campaign

Essilor launched its new national TV campaign for Varilux letting consumers know they can “See No Limits” with Varilux lenses and encouraging them to go to an Essilor Expert private practice. The new campaign will air nationwide in 2021 across Hulu, YouTube and more, defining the benefits of a progressive lens and compelling consumers to book an appointment. This is the company’s first national campaign using its new logo and branding system for its flagship and premium lens brands, including Varilux and Eyezen, to develop stronger patient recognition and drive demand to ECPs.
