DriveSafe Lens Portfolio
Finally, a more relaxed drive!
There is something captivating about driving a car. Yet many people still feel insecure and inadequately supported by their glasses in tricky conditions – such as during a storm, at night or at dawn or dusk. Traditional progressive lenses in particular are not optimum for driving a car. Using a combination of an optimized lens design and a special coating, ZEISS DriveSafe offers you a lens for everyday use with special features to make driving a more relaxed experience. Put your trust in ZEISS technologies for good vision when driving.

DriveSafe lenses: who for?
For everyone who wants a more relaxed driving experience
Whether we drive a lot or a little, good vision while driving is important to all of us. Driving in bad weather and tricky conditions is uncomfortable and stressful for many people. The demands placed on the optimum driving glasses are very similar.
Drivers who wear glasses would like to have:
- better vision in bad weather, at night or at dawn or dusk
- less glare
- fewer vision problems when shifting focus
DriveSafe meets this need for single vision and progressive lenses. The secret is: glasses with DriveSafe lenses are intended for everyday use and can be worn for the entire day.

ZEISS Luminance Design® technology
ZEISS DriveSafe features an optimized lens design that takes into account the size of our pupils in poor light. There is one lens design for single vision lenses and one for progressives. The result: improved and unimpaired vision when driving in poor light.
ZEISS DuraVision DriveSafe lens coating
With DriveSafe, ZEISS has used a special new coating to take into account the many different situations during driving when our eyes are confronted with glare. The DuraVision® DriveSafe coating by ZEISS partially reflects wavelengths in the high-energy, visible portion of the blue light spectrum, including the band around the wavelength of 450 nm. DuraVision® DriveSafe was proven effective with wearers preferring it for headlight glare reduction more than 2 to 1 over other premium AR coatings.
ZEISS DriveSafe lens design for progressives
ZEISS offers a special design to make driving with progressive lenses more comfortable and safer. The optimized vision zones make it easier for the eyes to refocus when moving between the road ahead and the dashboard and the rear view or side mirrors. Horizontal movements of the head are reduced. At the same time, the near zone is designed so that DriveSafe glasses can be worn all day long – they are also suitable for other activities, including reading.**
Bright light = Seeing with contracted pupils during the day: a large depth of field, unimpaired space perception
No light (darkness) = Night vision with large pupils: limited depth of field
Little light = Twilight vision with different pupil sizes: difficult conditions due to the variation in the depth of field
Poor light conditions increase glare and reflections
Up to a 43% larger** progression zone which allows you to easily shift focus between the dashboard and mirror combined with up to a 14% greater distance range for a broader view of the road.
