For over 160 years, ZEISS has stood for better vision. Building upon the optical expertise of the company, which was founded in 1846, ZEISS has since introduced a multitude of optional innovations and has helped millions of scientists, physicists, doctors and even astronauts go far beyond imaginarily possible to accomplish their goals.
Even today, Carl Zeiss remains committed to ensuring optimal vision. Every eye is as individual as the human fingerprint and no other sensory organ allows us to perceive and experience our environment as intensively. Therefore, it is especially important to us to fully take this individuality into account during patient consultation and diagnosis and in the production of ZEISS eyeglass lenses.
Let's look at your options as a patient in more detail.
There is something captivating about driving a car. Yet many people still feel insecure and inadequately supported by their glasses in tricky conditions, such as during a storm, at night or at dawn or dusk. Traditional progressive lenses in particular are not optimum for driving a car.

You’re working smarter, but your eyes are working harder
Smart phones and tablets have become essential to your life.

Increasingly, health professionals recommend that people of all ages protect their eyes from excessive blue-violet light exposure.

Blue-violet light: A health threat hiding in plain sight
Like invisible UV radiation, exposure to blueviolet light can affect your eyes and your health. And the threat is increasing as we are exposed to increasing levels of blue-violet light.
The American Macular Degeneration Foundation warns that blue-violet light may contribute to retinal damage and macular degeneration.
Viewing digital devices at night can also disrupt the brain’s production of melatonin, causing sleep disturbances.

The more the design of a progressive lens takes into account the personal parameters of the wearer, the more comfortable and relaxed their vision will be. This is precisely why ZEISS not only incorporates the patient's Rx or frame values, but also your visual habits. ZEISS Customized Progressive lenses provide you with outstanding clarity and visual comfort, regardless of your prescription, chosen frame and daily activities.

Lens Coatings - Zeiss DuraVision Platinum
Anti-reflective (AR) coatings a must for all lenses. A high-quality AR coating not only ensures that you look better by enhancing the visibility of your eyes, but it also eliminates most distracting reflections. AR coatings considerably facilitate night driving or reading. And anyone looking at you also benefits from an AR coating: as there are hardly any reflections on the front surface of the lens, they have an unhindered view of your eyes. Thanks to their innovative technology, ZEISS premium AR coatings reduce irritating reflections to a minimum.

These days, most customers opt for plastic lenses. However, these lenses are not as hard as lenses made of glass, and they are less resilient and more sensitive to scratching. Therefore, a special hard coating is definitely recommended to increase their durability. This makes the surface less sensitive to the scratches that can impair your vision. All ZEISS premium coatings feature a combination of an anti-reflective coating and an extremely durable hard coat.
ZEISS premium coatings display excellent anti-static properties, which means that they become dirty less quickly and attract considerably less dust and debris. And, the water- and oil-repellent layer ensures easy cleaning: the lenses can be conveniently cleaned with microfiber cloths or you can simply hold them under running, lukewarm water and shake off any remaining water droplets. As a rule, you do not even need to rub them dry with a cloth because liquids simply bead off the surface.

It goes without saying that UV protection is the number one quality criterion for a good pair of sunglasses. But not all sunglasses are the same. If you need your new pair of sunglasses for driving as well, it may prove helpful to opt for ZEISS lenses with polarization, i.e., lenses featuring anti-glare technology. It minimizes the external blinding effects that develop when sunlight is reflected by wet roads, for example. Polarizing eyeglass lenses reduce this blinding effect and improve both colour and contrast perception. You will enjoy sharper vision and your eyes will not tire as easily.
