Perfect for your first pair of glasses, glasses for children or standard everyday glasses: ZEISS single vision lenses are used for both distance vision and reading – the two most common reasons people wear glasses. What’s the difference? With reading glasses, the single vision lenses are optimised for vision in the near zone and personally fitted to the long-sighted reader’s standard reading distance. These lenses are great not only for books, but also for reading smaller font sizes on a smartphone or tablet. Long-sighted wearers usually have blurry vision in the near zone and sometimes when looking into the distance.

Long-sightedness results from an image being focused behind the retina, resulting in a blurry image. With short-sightedness, however, objects in the distance appear blurry because the short-sighted eye focuses images in front of the retina rather than on it. An optimally fitted pair of distance lenses can help you see clearly when looking at objects which are far away.

On average, we look at our smartphones, tablets or TV screens for almost five hours every day. And we glance at our mobile phones as many as 80 times a day! And these figures are set to rise in the future. Small font sizes and the constant switching of our viewing focus from near to far objects demands the utmost from our eyes. From the age of 30 onwards, this can lead to digital eyestrain or, as the experts put it, the Computer Vision Syndrome. ZEISS Digital Lenses offer the perfect remedy by enabling fast, comfortable focusing thanks a specially optimised near zone – no matter where we look. These lenses are ideal not only for digital devices, but also for reading books and magazines.

Our wide selection of progressive lens designs enables your optician to produce a pair of progressive glasses optimised for your particular vision needs and featuring unprecedented quality. Cutting-edge computer technology assists in measuring visual performance and fitting the lenses to your frames. The near, intermediate and distance zones are all incorporated into one lens with smooth transitions. These lenses are tailor-made for your facial shape, your lifestyle, your career and your visual habits. Individual and one-of-a kind – just like you.

People usually notice the change when they’re 35 or older: working at a computer screen and shifting their eyes – i.e. from the keyboard to the monitor or from the calendar to the telephone – is suddenly more stressful for their eyes. In order to see clearly at different distances, they often unconsciously assume an uncomfortable posture, e.g. by leaning forward or raising their head. Back and neck pains along with dry or teary eyes are just some of the possible consequences. ZEISS Office Lenses help prevent this type of visual stress: they are customised for your particular vision needs while on the job and are – unlike reading or progressive lenses – optimised for all required distances while working in front of a computer screen.

For excellent wearer comfort and greater safety on the road. ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses are optimised specially for driving. These lenses help you enjoy better vision at night or in difficult weather conditions, protect your eyes from reflections and make it easier for you to shift your viewing focus – quickly and often. The optimum extra safety feature from your everyday pair of glasses.

Being able to see well is a prerequisite for safe driving because on the road our eyes are working overtime: constantly shifting focus between the street, the GPS and the rearview and wing mirrors. Inclement weather or adverse light conditions often make it difficult to see. ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses – available as single-vision and progressive lenses – minimise this visual stress when driving and make it easier for drivers to see, enabling you to arrive at your destination safely and stress-free.
