Your eye health care partner – for life.

From prevention to detection, from corrective lenses to refractive surgery: We’ve got your eyes covered for the long run.

Nobody sees like you.

Vision care for individuals.

Seeing is more than just a physical act: When visual information moves past our eyes, each of us has a unique experience. We need our eyes to see clearly and receive the best visual information to inspire and feed our imaginations.

Your vision deserves the best care. Because nobody sees like you.

We offer tailored vision solutions. Because one-size-fits-all simply won’t do.

Nobody sees you like we do.

Your vision through the eyes of an optical giant.

ZEISS Vision Care is part of the larger ZEISS Group. With ZEISS Medical Technology, we cover the entire spectrum of eye health care needs during a person’s lifetime.

In addition to corrective lenses, we produce the technology used by eye care professionals to test, diagnose and treat eye conditions. ZEISS’s extensive expertise across various fields of optics informs the design and science behind our vision care products – including your ZEISS eyeglasses.

Unlock YOUR visual world.

We’re committed to helping you:

  • Seeing beyond since 1846.

    We’ve been around for a while. But we’re just getting started.

    Let’s look at a few milestones that have shaped the ZEISS we love today.

  • A black and white image of the first ZEISS workshop in Jena.
    Humble beginnings

    Carl Zeiss opened his first workshop for precision mechanics and optical instruments in Jena, Germany in 1846. He focused on microscope production. Soon, he was supplying the regional market and also shipping his wares around the world.

  • An image of a modern glass building with a big ZEISS logo on it.
    An optical powerhouse

    ZEISS is an internationally leading technology enterprise operating in various fields of optics and optoelectronics with annual revenue totalling over 10 billion euros.

  • An image of the Carl Zeiss foundation statute.
    A solid foundation

    After the passing of Carl Zeiss, his business partner Ernst Abbe created the Carl Zeiss Foundation. It would become the company’s sole owner. Its profits benefited science, social and cultural projects, and the workforce, too.

  • Hands in sterile gloves holding a lens to do quality control.
    Still all about innovation

    ZEISS is still a 100% foundation-owned company. We still reinvest a large proportion of our profits into research, science, education and social responsibility programmes.

    Pioneering vision care

    The launch of ZEISS Punktal spectacle lenses in 1912 marked the birth of the eyeglass lens industry. These lenses revolutionised the calculation and manufacture of corrective lenses for glasses.

    Your holistic eye health care partner

    We’re still setting industry standards to advance the quality of eye care. Beyond tailor-made vision correction, protecting your eye health over the long term is our priority.

    The first surgical microscopes

    The adaptation of ZEISS microscopes for use in surgeries opened up new possibilities for medical professionals and their patients.

    Hope when times are tough

    ZEISS MultiSEM is the world‘s fastest electron microscope. It helps doctors better understand the human brain – and develop effective treatments. ZEISS is the go-to tech in many surgeries around the globe.

  • The iconic earth rise image, taken with a ZEISS 250 mm Sonnar telephoto lens during the Apollo 8 mission.
    To the moon

    ZEISS camera lenses documented the first moon landing in 1969.

  • An image of a satellite in space, flying over the earth.
    Still in space – and in your pocket

    Google Earth satellites use our telescopes to capture our planet from space. Your smartphone camera might also feature ZEISS lenses.

  • An image of a ZEISS S-Planar lens on top of micro-structures.
    Making micro-structures

    In 1977 ZEISS unveiled S-Planar 10/0.28 – the first lens to enable the opto-lithographic production of 1 µm structures. This laid the foundation for the first wafer stepper – a crucial component for microchip production.

  • An image of a microchip held by a person with laboratory gloves.
    Shaping modern life

    Even smaller, more powerful and more efficient. ZEISS Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology enables chip manufacturers around the world to produce structures up to 5,000x thinner than a human hair.

We’ve been part of amazing adventures.

We’re investing in a bright future.

100% Renewable Energy in Varese5

With a mixture of hydro- and biomass power, the site has been meeting its energy needs through 100 percent renewable sources. The amount of the booked renewable electricity would satisfy the electricity needs of about 1,500 Italian families and contribute to avoid more 1,500 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually.

Reuse of Wastewater in Tijuana2

To counteract water scarcity in specific production regions, the eyeglass lenses plant reuses wastewater from operations processes for uses with lower water quality requirements. This results in an annual avoided water consumption of about 100 m3, the equivalent necessary for satisfying the yearly water drinking needs of 100 people.

Water savings through new manufacturing process in Tonsley9

With an investment of more than $1 million, production in Tonsley is being converted from wet-edging of lenses to dry-edging with CNC-controlled machines. In this way, no wastewater is produced during the production process.

Turn waste into raw material in Hebron3

The plant in Hebron has partnered up with a local business from the automotive industry. The partnership allows reusing the spent alcohol from the lenses production process as a raw material for the manufacturing of new alcohol-based products. Every year about 150 kg of potentially harmful volatile organic compounds can be therefore recycled.

Renewable energy procurement in Petrópolis4

The plant in the Petrópolis site uses renewable hydropower electricity, allowing the avoidance of about 550t CO2 per year, an amount similar to the CO2 fixed by a wood of 400 trees.

Recycling Heat in Production Processes in Guangzhou8

Renewal of a compressed air system always leads to higher energy efficiencies, but in this case has also triggered the idea in our engineers in Guangzhou to recover the exhaust air generated by reusing it in the warming of our tinting baths: about 90 MWh consumption less, the equivalent of a domestic energy consumption of 30 Chinese families.

Lens production with solar energy in Guangzhou7

For the production of ophthalmic lenses, the production site uses almost 100 percent solar energy instead of fossil fuels.

Rainwater Recycling in Bangalore6

The Bangalore factory collects rainwater on a surface of 1,200 m2 on the factory roof and uses it for lenses production. This way, the avoided consumption of the municipal drinking water, about 690,000 liters a year, is available for the citizens in an area facing water shortage during the drought season.
