From a meeting at your desk, checking email on a smartphone, driving quickly to the airport, a customer presentation after a two-hour flight and then back again--along with a mobile phone, laptop and briefcase, glasses are often one of the most important objects in a manager's daily life. We would like to provide you with a few tips on what makes a manager’s glasses state-of-the-art.
As a manager, you often have to switch your focus back and forth between the near and intermediate vision range – from your PC to a paper document, for example, or from the document to a person. If you need vision correction for close or far ranges and use or are interested in glasses with progressive lenses, your lenses can be as customized as closely as a tailored suit. Thanks to the Individual Fit technology by ZEISS, the near vision range in particular can be adjusted to your specific visual requirements. The more customized the progressive lens is to you and your vision and wearing parameters, the more compatible the progressive lenses are. Maximum possible visual comfort can be achieved thanks to natural and relaxed vision with progressive lenses.
Give yourself time to choose your eyeglass frames. Consult your eye care professional to find the frames that suit you and your professional activity. Make sure that the frames not only look good, but that they also fit you ideally. Eyeglass frames can also be customized. Light frames could be beneficial; after all, you wear your glasses all day. Decide if you want your new frames to express your personality or simply be as inconspicuous as possible.
The lenses themselves also play an important role in the appearance of your glasses. Attractively thin and light lenses that do not enlarge or shrink the eyes, even with high prescription strengths, are available with just about all modern lens technologies from ZEISS, from prescription lenses to lens coatings.
Modern lens coatings can make your glasses a trusted companion at work and play. For someone who is often in the public eye – whether at conferences, in talks with customers or at presentations – a high-performance anti-reflective coating for your lenses is especially important to you. If the lenses have no anti-reflective coating, glare and reflections can distract both the eyeglass wearer and the person you are talking to: first, on the back of the lens, where they could annoy the wearer, and secondly on the front of the lens, which is annoying for the person looking at the wearer.
Make things easier by investing in a high-quality coating that provides your glasses with an anti-static effect and repels dirt and water. CleanCoat and anti-static coatings, which are integrated in the DuraVision Platinum high-end coating by ZEISS, for example, make lenses both anti-static and water-repellent. A clear benefit to you: in addition to relaxed visual comfort, it will be easier to clean your eyeglass lenses. Greasy fingerprints are also easier to remove.
Constantly having to switch back and forth between your normal glasses and sunglasses can be annoying – especially on business trips. Modern technologies for self-tinting lenses, known as photochromic lenses (such as ZEISS PhotoFusion) rapidly darken or lighten. Under intensive light or solar radiation, they become as dark as classic sunglass lenses and when inside, they brighten up completely. For special occasions, such as skiing, walking or driving, you should still use sunglasses, possibly even with polarizing lenses.
