Here's one colleague you can always count on: ZEISS Officelens has been specially optimized for the office and computer screen, making the average working day easier on your eyes. These lenses help you concentrate and work without tiring your eyes.
People usually notice the change when they're 35 or older: working at a computer screen and shifting their eyes – for example, from the keyboard to the monitor or from the calendar to the telephone – is suddenly more stressful for their eyes. In order to see clearly at different distances, they often unconsciously assume an uncomfortable posture by leaning forward or raising their head. Back and neck pains along with dry or watery eyes are just some of the possible consequences. ZEISS Officelens helps prevent this type of visual stress: it is are customized for your particular vision needs while on the job and is – unlike reading or progressive lenses – optimized for all required distances while working in front of a computer screen.
Ensure that you enjoy comfortable vision in the office – no matter where you look. ZEISS Office Lenses offer a large visual field for the near and intermediate zones and are adapted to your requirements on the job, right down to the very last centimetre. These lenses are optimized e.g. for the viewing distance between you and your computer screen, the distance to the customer or a co-worker or the perfect distance for reading, allowing your eyes to relax and ensuring a more suitable posture. You'll notice the positive effects even after work.
Eyeglasses with standard reading or progressive lenses are generally not ideal for working at the computer because the relevant areas of the lens are not optimized for office work. Reading glasses, for example, only enable optimum vision for a short distance – too short for working at the computer or looking at your desk. With progressive lenses, however, the wearer looks at the monitor through the lower area of the lens and must tilt their head upwards in order to see the screen clearly. Both types of lenses promote an unnatural posture while sitting, potentially causing muscle tension in your back, shoulders and back as well as headaches.
Up to any challenge. ZEISS Officelens feature our Digital Inside® Technology, a specially optimized near zone that enables fast, comfortable focusing – such as when switching your gaze from your mobile phone to the computer screen and back again. These lenses not only provide you with stress-free, clear vision when using digital devices, they are also perfect for reading books and magazines. They help prevent uncomfortable head and body posture, give your eyes a break and reduce digital eye strain.
Depending on the job, our eyes must master very different challenges. Generally, a distinction is made between the following three types of work situations.
For those people who primarily read documents at work – like architects, editors or tax advisors. The most important factor for their Officelens is a greater focus on the reading area with a maximum visual distance of 3 feet. The wider distance area provides the wearer with significantly greater comfort while reading – unlike traditional reading glasses that are usually optimized for only 15-20 inches.
These people primarily switch their focus from the keyboard to the screen, as with programmers, journalists or call center employees. Their Officelens should offer clear, natural vision ranging from a reading distance all the way to a distance of maximum 7 feet – that's ideal for the office environment.
These people often have face-to-face contact with customers, repeatedly stand up and move away from their workstation and also work at a computer, such as in retail or manufacturing. Their optimum lens design should provide natural vision which extends from the reading zone all the way to the maximum distance of 14 feet.
UV is always around. Even on cloudy days. UV radiation represents a health risk for your eyes but as also to the eye surroundings. Do you always protect your eyes when you are outdoors? Now all clear lenses from ZEISS come with full UV protection!
The special properties of the lens filter out harmful UV rays and provide your eyes with lasting protection.
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. Blue light may be dangerous, and many people find it unpleasant and stressful for their eyes. It also adversely impacts our biorhythms. A special blue light filter in your eyeglass lenses can provide you with more comfortable vision.
The following rule applies to every pair of glasses: the lighter they are, the better. And this not only holds true for the frames. High-quality materials and precise technology enable the manufacture of ZEISS single vision lenses which are as thin and light as possible – even with a high prescription. This ensures maximum wearer comfort with only minimum weight.
High-performance lens coatings make your eyeglass lenses extremely resistant to scratches or static dust particles. The benefit: your lenses remain dirt-free longer, ensuring that they're significantly easier to clean. See better, look better – thanks to the latest anti-reflective coating.
1. Comfortable vision in the near and intermediate zones is not only necessary for working at the computer. You can also make good use of your computer glasses in day-to-day life: while pursuing your hobbies, handiwork, needlework, music, arts and crafts, cooking or housework.
2. Make sure you maintain optimum posture and have suitable lighting when doing work at your computer screen.
3. You'll know the setup is ideal when the upper edge of the computer screen is at eye level or slightly below. To achieve the best height, you can also raise or lower your chair.
4. Make sure you relax your eyes over the course of the day by looking out the window and into the distance every hour for about five minutes – without focusing.
5. It often happens that your natural blinking becomes irregular when performing stressful work. The solution: close your eyes frequently for a brief moment. This prevents irritated or dry eyes.
