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.

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.

The right solution for everyone.

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.

Incredibly thin, light lenses. Even with a high prescription.

The following rule applies to every pair of glasses: the lighter they are, the better. And this not only holds true for the frames. High-quality materials and precise technology enable the manufacture of ZEISS single vision lenses which are as thin and light as possible – even with a high prescription. This ensures maximum wearer comfort with only minimum weight.

Sunglass-level UV protection in all clear ZEISS lenses.

UV is always around. Even on cloudy days. UV radiation represents a health risk for your eyes but as also to the eye surroundings. Do you always protect your eyes when you are outdoors? Now all clear lenses from ZEISS come with full UV protection!

The special properties of the lens filter out harmful UV rays and provide your eyes with lasting protection.

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 your eyeglass lenses 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 eyeglass 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. The lenses with integrated sun protection. Stylish and practical.

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