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.

The world in pixels – a challenge for our eyes.

The increasing use of smartphones, navigation devices, e-readers and tablets is also changing our visual behavior: our eyes are having to become accustomed to a new range of near vision to accommodate the shorter distance at which we hold digital devices compared to a newspaper or a book. And they also require our eyes to constantly switch between different distances. This is a situation that demands a lot – often too much – from our eyes: more and more people are becoming nearsighted or are complaining about problems with their eyes or general health as a result.

What is digital eye strain?

The use of digital technology demands the utmost from our eyes. In just a fraction of a second they have to move between far and near: from viewing something in the distance to small displays, tiny fonts and tightly packed information – and then back again. This places extreme strain on the ciliary muscle and the lens of the eye which have to constantly re-adapt to ensure that what we see is clearly focused. Headache and neck strain, burning or tired eyes may be the result, particularly as we get older.

Digital Lens. The right solution for everyone.

Relaxed, comfortable vision. With lenses for the digital world.

ZEISS Digital Lens is sharply focused on the use of digital devices such as e-readers or smartphones. Special optimization of the near zone takes into account the typical movements of the eyes and shorter reading distance required by these devices. This design optimally supports the ciliary muscle, therefore making it easier for the wearer to focus their vision in the near and distance ranges. This may help to prevent symptoms of fatigue. The ideal glasses for all-day use – and not only for digital natives.

Digital Lens, Officelens and progressive lenses – how do they differ?

Up to every challenge. While ZEISS Digital Lens has been specially optimized for near vision and is suitable for all-day use, ZEISS Officelens is designed as an additional pair of glasses for people who notice that they are starting to have problems with vision at mid- and near-viewing distances – the typical range of vision required in the office, for example. ZEISS progressive lenses, on the other hand, offer an individualized design for clear, focused vision at near, far and everything in between.

Aesthetically thin, exceptionally light. Uncompromising design.

No matter if they're made of plastic or glass: cutting-edge production methods enable the manufacture of incredibly thin and light lenses, even for those with a high prescription or special visual impairments. You'll barely notice you're wearing these lightweight lenses at all.

FYI: many clear eyeglass lenses from ZEISS – without tints – also feature a high-performance UV coating. The special properties of the lens filter harmful sunlight and provide your eyes with outstanding protection from UV rays.

Added vision comfort in artificial light. Counteract eye fatigue and visual stress.

No matter if it's a smartphone, an LED lamp, a monitor, TV, tablet or an e-reader: modern light sources emit more blue light than we've ever experienced before. Blue light may be dangerous, and many people find it unpleasant and stressful for their eyes. It also adversely impacts our biorhythms. A special blue light filter in the lens can provide you with more comfortable vision.

Scratches and dirt don't stand a chance. More durable than ever.

High-performance lens coatings make your lenses extremely resistant to scratches or static dust particles. The benefit: your lenses remain dirt-free longer, ensuring that they're significantly easier to clean. See better, look better – thanks to the latest anti-reflective coating.

Digital Lens for sunglasses.
The summer dream team.

Every pair of glasses can be transformed into a pair of sunglasses of your choice, featuring perfect UV protection and optimum vision in one lens. And these lenses come with everything you'd expect: improved contrast perception, less glare and an anti-reflective coating. In a nutshell: uncompromising excellence.

Self-tinting lenses for the ultimate in comfort. Perfect UV protection included.

A pair of glasses for every viewing situation: in their self-tinting version these lenses also function as sunglasses. They darken in seconds and clear in just a few minutes. And of course they feature 100% UV protection.
