ZEISS Active: Sport Lenses for unlimited vision to fuel your ambitions


ProGolf Lenses not only reduce the intensity of bright light, but they also enhance contrast perception through the selective absorption of specific wavelengths. This means that, even with constant transitions between light and shadow during the game, the golfer enjoys optimum visibility. They can see any unevenness or bumps in the course more clearly than with traditional sunglasses.

ZEISS Sport Lenses

Lifestyle and sports frames often require something extra.

Wrapped frames require special prescription lenses. These frames protect patients from lateral glare, UV light and wind. This confronts the eye care professional with a special challenge:

  • The extreme tilt of these frames changes the perceived perspective.
  • Using traditional lenses cause aberrations and distortions that impair vision.

The optimum solution

ZEISS Sport Lenses provide optimum optical correction for all wrapped frames, ensuring that aberrations are a thing of the past.

Technology for ZEISS wrapped lenses, complete with DuraVision® Sun UV, turns the challenge of extreme conditions into a fun activity.
