ZEISS is an internationally leading technology enterprise operating in the optics and optoelectronics industries. ZEISS develops and distributes lithography optics, measuring technology, microscopes, medical technology, eyeglass lenses, camera and cine lenses, binoculars and planetarium technology. With its solutions, the company constantly advances the world of optics and helps shape technological progress.
Founded in 1846 in Jena, the company is headquartered in Oberkochen, Germany.
Carl Zeiss, a well-known German lens manufacturer, still leads the field in the manufacture of glass prescription lenses. If you require the thinnest possible lens, the Zeiss glass lenses are available in the highest refractive index of 1.9, therefore ensuring the best possible appearance for those with very high prescriptions. Their new iScription lens can considerably improve visual performance at night and help improve the safety of night driving.
Clear vision is vital for safety, especially with the long nights, poor weather and dazzling lights. ZEISS has launched the industry's first DiveSafe Lenses, specifically designed for people who want to feel safer and more relaxed with their everyday lenses.
Following market research studies with consumers, ZEISS has identified the three most common visual challenges experienced by drivers and created ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses to directly address those challenges.
New coating to reduce glare
Glare can be a risk, reducing the visibility of objects and sensitivity of the eye to contrast. ZEISS DuraVision DriveSafe Coating partially reflects these wavelengths and reduces perceived glare by up to 64 per cent* compared to premium AR coatings.
Better vision in difficult light conditions
Many people feel insecure, uncomfortable and stressed when driving, especially in bad light and poor weather conditions. After intensive research and wearer trials, ZEISS developed the new Luminance Design Technology (LDT) to give wearers better vision in low-light conditions such as twilight, rainfall, gloomy days or at night.
Improved visual comfort for dynamic vision
Drivers must be alert at all times when driving. Most of the time they need a broad view of the road in order to evaluate traffic conditions. The ZEISS DriveSafe Lens design makes it easier for progressive lens wearers to quickly refocus between the road, dashboard and mirrors. It also features optimised distance and intermediate viewing zones, reducing the need for horizontal head movement.
ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses are available in both enhanced single vision and progressive lenses.
*64 per cent of wearers reported ZEISS DuraVision DriveSafe reduced perceived glare, compared to other premium ZEISS coatings.
