  • Do you spend a lot of time on the road?
  • Is driving at night a challenge for your eyes?
  • Feel blinded by the glare of oncoming traffic and streetlights?
Your dream driving glasses have arrived. ZEISS Single Vision DriveSafe lenses are designed for comfortable vision behind the wheel, especially when driving at night and in difficult light conditions. And they’ll have you seeing clearly all day long – even when you’re not in the car.

Get your eyes road ready.

Safety is a priority every time you get behind the wheel. You wear your safety belt, check your tires, and make sure everything is in good working order. But we all know how scary driving can be if you can’t see clearly.
We developed ZEISS DriveSafe to help make every journey a great one. But they're fantastic for life outside the car as well.

Prepare for night glare.

Oncoming traffic and streetlights can make driving at night tough. To reduce perceived glare at night, our special DuraVision® DriveSafe lens coating reflects much of the wavelengths that really bother our eyes. It also makes your lenses more scratch-resistant, durable and easy to clean.

Let’s recap.

Why stop now?

Let’s check if you’ve considered all the ingredients to make your ZEISS lenses unique.

With ZEISS Single Vision DriveSafe your lens design is covered, but there might be a few more choices to make.

Your eyes

ZEISS Single Vision DriveSafe lenses are great for short-sighted drivers who want to see clearly at long distances. DriveSafe is also available in a progressive design for mature eyes that need help switching focus. Ask your optician for the best option.

Your lifestyle

ZEISS DriveSafe is a lifestyle lens – optimised for people who spend a lot of time on the road, but suitable for all-day wear. If you don’t drive that often, check out ZEISS SmartLife – our most innovative option for a connected, on-the-move life.

Your face & frame

You can get ZEISS Single Vision DriveSafe lenses with our FaceFit technology – for even better vision behind the wheel. All it takes are some measurements by your ZEISS optician.

Eye protection

Even your clear DriveSafe lenses will come with full UV protection. Add an optional tint and polarization filter if you want high-performance sunglasses for driving and beyond.   

Thickness & weight

ZEISS DriveSafe lenses are made for a comfortable ride. You can also get them in a material that‘ll make them thin and light. And don‘t worry – they‘re not yellow like some driving glasses on the market.

Durability & care

To reduce perceived glare when driving at night, each pair of clear DriveSafe lenses comes with a special anti-reflective lens coating. Like our other coatings, ZEISS DuraVision DriveSafe also makes your glasses scratch-resistant and easy to clean.

Any questions?

  • While you can try to avoid looking at oncoming headlights, adjust your mirrors and make sure your windshield is clean, an anti-reflective coating on the front and back of your glasses is a great way to help improve visibility at night.
    The special DuraVision® coating on ZEISS DriveSafe lenses reduces perceived glare by up to 64%1 – so even driving in the dark can be a little more relaxed.

  • Want the best glasses for driving? We recommend ZEISS DriveSafe of course. Here’s why:

    • ZEISS DriveSafe lens optics are specially optimised for good vision in the car and the need for your eyes to dynamically shift focus while you’re on the road. Still, you won’t have to switch glasses – they’ll give you clear vision all day.
    • They have a special anti-reflective coating to reduce disturbing glare at night and consider how your eyes react to different types of light.
    • While they are available as sunglasses, even clear ZEISS DriveSafe lenses offer full UV protection.
  • Some driving glasses with yellow or different colour lenses claim to enhance contrast and improve vision at night. But why switch to yellow glasses if you can have clear ZEISS glasses for driving and life outside the car – all in one?

    The optical design of ZEISS DriveSafe lenses is optimised for crisp vision while driving in any type of light while our DuraVision DriveSafe coating help reduce glare at night. With just a slight blue-purple reflection, you’ll look good all day and feel more confident behind the wheel.

    If you’d like, ZEISS DriveSafe lenses are available in a variety of sunglass colours and mirrored polarization options as well.
