One glance at automotive accident statistics reveals this fact: Although only 20 percent of all cars are operated on public roadways in Germany in the dark, 40 percent of all serious accidents occur at night (Source: German Federal Statistical Office).
Because of poor vision conditions, the risk of having a traffic accident is at its highest level at night: Starbursts, reflections, mirror images, limited vision, low contrasts and general adverse visual conditions irritate and fatigue the eyes and the human sensory system overall.
These limitations not only increase the risk of accidents, they also have a negative impact on your quality of life. They can make you feel handicapped and insecure, and make it tough for you to drive at night or enjoy night-time outdoor activities during the seasons when the days are shorter.
A complex and patented computation process is used to translate the analyzed data along with the subjective refraction data into information that results in the production of precision eyeglass lenses that perfectly match your eyes and your individual vision challenges. Based on these highly precise ZEISS measurements and calculations, these lenses are manufactured in 1/100 dioptric increments.
Conventional eyeglasses, on the other hand, are usually produced in increments of 0.25 diopters. Thus, the ZEISS solution is more precise than any other measuring process for lenses available today.
Carl Zeiss Vision‘s i.Scription® system consists of three components: the innovative eye measuring device i.Profiler® by ZEISS (see photo), the optimization technology i.Scription® – and last, but not least, the services provided by your eye care professional.
Contact lenses are a very good alternative to glasses – yet there are still a few vision solutions that are only possible with good ol' glasses.
