The best choice for patients with more extreme vision problems: the exceptionally thin lenses from ZEISS

Special plastic materials and optimized lens designs make the innovatively manufactured High Index ZEISS Lenses comfortable and also fashionably sleek: Compared to conventional lenses, High Index are up to 40 percent thinner – a critical aesthetic benefit. After all, thick distort the way others see our eyes.


Thick lenses that are externally concave can greatly enlarge the appearance of the eyes of far-sighted patients who wear plus lenses. The effect is called the bulging eye syndrome, and it makes the eyes look as if they are bulging out.

In contrast, minus lenses minimize the appearance of the eyes of near-sighted patients and make their facial contours appear narrower behind the glasses. Both effects are undesirable for the patient and give them unattractive profiles.

HighIndex addresses both problems: The plastic material used to manufacture these lenses and a perfectly optimized lens design guarantee an absolutely natural look and unbeatable comfort no matter how strong the lenses are. The best choice for patients with more extreme vision problems,exceptionally thin lenses from ZEISS, arealso available in aspheric flat design.

The benefits of aspherically-cut lenses: They are thinner than conventionally manufactured lenses and less concave, but deliver the same correction levels and excellent vision results.
