We share a connected and on-the-move lifestyle that influences our visual behaviour.

Your customers live in a fast-paced world, constantly connected to people, information and things, both on- and offline. They tend to have their eyes glued to digital devices even when they are on the move. And yet, life is about more than just screens. Constantly switching between digital devices and physical surroundings can be challenging for the eyes and may lead to uncomfortable vision or eye strain. This can make even ordinary tasks feel harder, or worse – let life’s details go unnoticed. Good, comfortable vision is crucial to take on every day, confident and aware. Your customers don’t only need clear central vision but also smooth peripheral vision. This helps them to easily switch between different distances and directions as they navigate through life.

Our visual needs evolve as we grow older.

Anatomical and physiological changes of the eyes can lead to different visual challenges over time. No matter how young or old your customers are, they have to deal with the visual strain that has become part of their modern lifestyle. In addition, their visual needs also change with age. This can be attributed to two key factors:

  • A decrease in the amplitude of accommodation.
  • A decrease in pupil diameter.

A superior portfolio addressing the visual needs of spectacle lens wearers today.

The new and complete SmartLife Portfolio from ZEISS is a response to these relevant customer insights and extensive research. Whether your customers need single vision lenses, varifocal lenses or something else, our solutions will help all spectacle lens wearers to keep up with the times.
