Course Description:

It is a fact - people are spending more time in front of digital devices than ever before. Increasingly digital lifestyles often dictate that PAL wearers adopt rigid, uncomfortable postures in their daily lives. New Varilux® Comfort Max lenses adapt to the wearer's natural posture, delivering the 20/Happy vision they desire and providing postural flexibility for all-day-long vision comfort. In this online, ABO-earning course, you will learn how Varilux Comfort Max lenses will help you elevate your mid-range progressive offering, bring new patients into the category with a lens preferred by 9/10 new PAL wearers*, and drive better patient retention.
