Our Partners and Awards

ZEISS is proud of the fact that it has partnered with brands from around the world and is delighted to receive awards on a regular basis.

Partnerships and Awards

There’s hardly a better form of recognition for a job well done than the fact that top brands regularly choose to partner with ZEISS. And ZEISS regularly wins awards all over the world. This can largely be attributed to what ZEISS stands for: its top quality, precision, reliability, innovative strength and customer focus.

Partners

When it comes to sunglass lenses in particular, big-name brands are determined not to make any compromises in terms of lens quality. The same goes for sports glasses, which have to offer both visual appeal and special features – and ZEISS has developed its own unique solutions. Partnerships have already been forged with frame manufacturers for everyday glasses, as well as for unique and lasting projects. Top optical brands also put their trust in ZEISS by opening their own ZEISS Vision Centers, which fully subscribe to a ZEISS concept.
