Part 14: Did you know …

… that ZEISS sun lenses are available in an unlimited spectrum of colours?

There are only three primary colours, but when mixed they create the amazing range of colours we see around us. Like nature’s palette, ZEISS sunglass lenses come in an unlimited selection of colours and can be matched to your favourite outfit – or your mood. Pick a favourite colour to match your new shirt or a fashion trend – or simply choose a timeless classic. And let ZEISS do the rest to create your unique sun lenses. 

Design your own sunglasses

See the world in living colour!

Sunglass lenses protect us against glare and harmful UV radiation. However, more than any other type of lens they are also a fashion accessory and can be real eye-catchers! And it's not only the frame that counts. Sunglass lenses must also meet the dictates of fashion! This is where ZEISS can fit the bill every time.

ZEISS sunglass lenses can incorporate practically any prescription. Polarising lenses prevent reflections in an astonishing way. For sports spectacles, ZEISS offers wrapped lenses which – regardless of whether they are single vision or progressive – provide maximum visual comfort right into the lens periphery. Last but not least, self-tinting lenses are the first choice for wearers who want the ultimate in visual comfort in all light conditions.

And, of course, real fashion fans attach prime importance to the tint of their lenses – perfectly matched to the frame and to their own personal style and outfit. At ZEISS the sky is the limit when it comes to lens tints! You can order your own personal tint for your sunglass lenses – whether it is simply your favourite colour, or the colour you find most comfortable for your eyes or that best matches a special outfit. You will then receive something very unique. Practically any colour is now possible with the ZEISS range of colours that is sharply focused on current trends and styles. All you need to  do is take a colour sample with you to your optician.

It doesn't matter whether you want lenses with or without prescription. If you would love to buy a pair of sunglasses but you don't like the colour of the lenses, your optician can show you the ZEISS range of colours for you to choose from.

10 tips for tinted lenses from ZEISS

  1. As fascinating as vibrant colours may be – unless you plan to own more than one pair of spectacles, less is more when it comes to colour. In this way, you will have a colour that matches many different outfits.

  2. The best thing to do is go to your optician wearing your favourite outfit, which will help him or her to find the perfect colour and tint.

  3. You should also choose a light tint if you plan to wear the spectacles frequently or for extended periods. The sensitivity of your eyes to light also plays a part when choosing coloured lenses.

  4. When selecting colours, women should apply their usual eye make-up beforehand and choose the tint accordingly. This makes it easier for your optician to recommend suitable tints.

  5. Colours can also influence the way we feel. Looking through red prescription spectacle lenses gives you added strength and stamina; yellow lenses put you in a good mood. What is your personal choice?

  6. Select the colour you think best matches your frame – and not just its colour but also its overall style. What happens if you want something unusual – if you would like to combine a retro frame with some ultra-modern colour, for example? Be courageous!

  7. Why not change your image by adding a little colour to your life now and again? Do you have a favourite frame? New, colourful lenses can turn it into a real eye-catcher.

  8. Are your tinted lenses for private use only, or are they part of your career plans? For models or designers, the colours simply can't be loud enough. However, if you plan to sell shares or insurance, pink prescription spectacle lenses could be misunderstood. Colours create impact.

  9. Spectacle lenses can do a lot more besides: they increase contrast, prevent reflections and glare and, with the right prescription, they provide you with better and more comfortable vision. Consult your optician and find the best solution for your sunglasses. Maximum UV protection is an absolute must.

  10. Your sunglasses must also be able to stand up to the wear and tear of everyday life. So, make sure your lenses feature a modern, wear-resistant coating. Plastic lenses with a DuraVision® Platinum coating are up to three times harder than previous generations. Extremely resistant to dirt and wear, this leading-edge coating is the perfect addition to any sun protection solution.

"I recognise athletes wearing 'my' tinted lenses."

We have many different customers who opt for ZEISS because the brand stands for precision optics within the world of sport. This is especially true for our sporting customers. For example, lenses for archery ensure that the bull’s eye is always plain to see each and every time, enabling the wearer to perform at his or her best. And when I see a sportsman wearing spectacles with one of my tints, I’m really proud and think to myself: “That’s all from me!”
