ZEISS PureCoat®

Precision lenses from ZEISS provide exceptionally sharp vision. But harsh glare from digital devices, night driving or environmental obstacles such as a dusty room could compromise your patients’ vision — and potentially damage their lenses. ZEISS has the solution.

ZEISS invented anti-reflective technology over 75 years ago, and has continued to developed unique technologies to help ensure that your patients see their best and their lenses are protected — no matter what life throws at them.

Talk with your patients and let them know that ZEISS lens coatings are available to protect their eyes and their lenses.


Anti-Reflective Technology
Lenses without anti-reflective technology develop visible light reflections that can be dangerous when driving on wet roads or at night. The anti-reflective technology in ZEISS PureCoat® PLUS helps reduce reflections to less than 1% of the light — compared with 7% to 13% for uncoated lenses.

Scratch-Resistant Technology
Plastic lenses help make glasses lighter and more comfortable, but they’re much more prone to scratches than glass lenses. The high-quality, scratch-resistant technology in ZEISS PureCoat® PLUS helps keep lenses from getting scratched.

Anti-Static Technology
Dirt and dust can cling to traditional untreated lenses, blurring your vision. But the patented anti-static element in ZEISS PureCoat® PLUS helps repel contaminants like dust and debris.

Hydrophobic Technology
Grease or droplets of water can slide off the surface of lenses treated with this super-slick coating, so the lenses are quicker and easier to clean. ZEISS PureCoat® PLUS provides superior super-hydrophobic performance that keeps the lenses clean longer.

Easier Edging
ZEISS SureGrip™ technology dramatically reduces the slippage problems found with many of today’s super-slick lens coatings, so uncut lenses can be edged more easily and effectively.

Benefits

Benefits for the wearer

1. Very easy to clean
The Super-slick Clean Coat or hydrophobic layer makes the lenses very easy to clean. Lenses with a high contact angle repel oil and water more effectively.

2. Robust
ZEISS lenses with PureCoat® PLUS AR coating are more durable lenses as they are equipped with a hard lacquer to protect the substrate.

3. Dirt-resistant
Thanks to a patented anti-static layer, dust and lint do not stick to the surface easily.

4. Anti-reflective properties
The anti-reflective technology and the blue reflex color of ZEISS PureCoat® PLUS helps reduce reflections to less than 1%.
