When was the last time you had your eyes tested? Many people don't have their eyes tested regularly; only this can ensure that we can always benefit from optimum vision. After all, our eyes, and hence our vision, are subject to a process of constant change as we get older, and this often goes unnoticed. The first sign that our vision is deteriorating is not always blurred or unfocused vision. Headache or eye strain in the evening could also indicate defective vision.

Single vision lenses from ZEISS.
Experience excellent wearing comfort.
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 optimized for vision in the near zone and personally fitted to the farsighted 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. Farsighted wearers usually have blurry vision in the near zone and sometimes when looking into the distance. Farsightedness results from an image being focused behind the retina, resulting in a blurry image. With nearsightedness, however, objects in the distance appear blurry because the nearsighted 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.
ZEISS Digital Lens.
The remedy to digital eye strain.
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 25 onwards, this can lead to digital eye strain or, as the experts put it, Computer Vision Syndrome. ZEISS Digital Lens offers the perfect remedy by enabling fast, comfortable focusing thanks a specially optimized near zone – no matter where we look. These lenses are ideal not only for digital devices, but also for reading books and magazines.
ZEISS DriveSafe –
the everyday pair of glasses for driving
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 side-view mirrors. Unpleasant weather or adverse light conditions often make it difficult to see. ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses – available as single vision and progressive lenses – minimize this visual stress when driving and make it easier for drivers to see, enabling you to arrive at your destination safely and stress-free.
Sunglass lenses from ZEISS –
Fashionable, versatile and high-performing. For all outdoor activities.
Are all sunglasses the same? Not at all. When do you wear your sunglasses the most? While shopping? While sitting at a café? Or maybe while taking a walk through the park? Or perhaps when you're playing sports or driving a car? The better your sunglasses meet your needs, the more comfortable they are to wear. Take our test to find out which outdoor lenses from ZEISS are best for you. There are three categories to choose from: Urban, Drive and Active.
Everything at a glance.
People usually notice the change when they're 35 or older: working at a computer screen and shifting their eyes – for example, 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 by leaning forward or raising their head. Back and neck pains along with dry or watery eyes are just some of the possible consequences. ZEISS Officelens helps prevent this type of visual stress: it is are customized for your particular vision needs while on the job and is – unlike reading or progressive lenses – optimized for all required distances while working in front of a computer screen.
