Seeing digital. Progressive lenses for a modern world.

These days we're constantly using our smartphones or tablets, but these digital devices pose a new challenge for our eyes. ZEISS progressive lenses incorporate these changes in our everyday lives and enable fast, comfortable focusing thanks a specially optimised near zone – no matter where you're looking. These lenses are not only perfect for digital devices, but also books and magazines, helping you avoid uncomfortable head and body posture.

Available for every pair of frames. Your style, your choice.

Thinking about getting a new, fashionable pair of frames? Be inspired by the sheer diversity available. Even with unusually shaped frames (e.g. aviator glasses), your ZEISS optician will adjust the new progressive lenses to accommodate your visual habits so that there is no adaptation period.

Ultra-thin and super light. Less weight, greater wearer comfort.

No matter if they're made of plastic or glass: cutting-edge production methods enable the manufacture of incredibly thin, light lenses, even with a high prescription and special visual impairments. You'll barely notice you're wearing these lightweight champions at all.

F.Y.I.: many clear spectacle lenses from ZEISS – without tints – also feature a high-performance UV coating. The special properties of the lens filter harmful sunlight and provide your eyes with lasting protection from UV rays.

Scratches and dirt don't stand a chance. More robust than ever.

High-performance lens coatings make your glasses extremely durable against scratches or adhesive dirt. The benefit: your lenses remain dirt-free for longer, making them significantly easier to clean. See better, look better – thanks in part to the latest anti-reflective coating.

Additional visual 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. Many people find this light unpleasant and stressful because it adversely impacts our biorhythms and may even be dangerous for our eyes. A blue light filter in the spectacle lens can provide you with more comfortable vision.

5 Tips for Progressive Lenses

Let your eyes adjust to your new progressive glasses immediately

3. Let your eyes adjust to your new progressive glasses immediately. This means: wear them on an ongoing basis – and be patient!

Your eyes and vision will adjust in next to no time. Should you still have difficulties after 14 days, however, go to your optician. If you don't enjoy clear vision when looking straight ahead or if edges seem blurred in the distance, then your glasses may be centred too high. But if you have to look far down to see things close up, then your glasses may be centred too low in front of your eyes. In either case, you optician can help – often just a short visit solves the problem.

People wearing progressive lenses

4. People wearing progressive lenses for the first time usually find their distance vision works best with their new glasses.

When you're reading, just look down with your eyes – don't tilt your whole head. When you're walking, look straight ahead and not at the ground. When walking upstairs, tilt your head in such a way that you're looking through the upper section of your lenses, i.e. through the area of the lens for distance vision – that way you'll see the stairs clearly.

5 Tips for Progressive Lenses

Glasses sit just as they were fitted by your optician.
