If you want to follow Goethe's recommendations, you can ask your eye care professional to show you the various tints. Talk to him about when you primarily intend to use the colored lenses - as sunglasses, daily or only for special occasions. Then ask the question that may be more difficult to answer: which color to choose? ZEISS' new color range includes a first-class premium selection: black, brown, grey, grey-green, blue and rose for single color lenses; black, brown, gray, gray-green, blue and gray-blue for graduated tints; and pistachio, cinnamon, stone and denim bluefor the bicolor lenses. There are also trendy fashion colors. As fascinating as these vibrant colors are, unless you plan to own more than one pair of glasses, less is more when it comes to color. You should also choose a light tint if you plan to wear your glasses frequently or for extended periods. The eyes' sensitivity to light also plays a part when choosing colored lenses. It is also important for people to still see your eyes clearly. The best thing to do is go to your eye care professional in your favorite outfit, which will help them assist you in finding the perfect color and tint. When choosing colors, women should apply their usual eye make-up and choose the tint accordingly. You should also consider which clothes you wear often. This makes it easier for your eye care professional to coordinate the color choice of the prescription eyeglass lens tint from their collection.
Do you want even more individuality? Then have the color mixed just for you. You can give your eye care professional an item of clothing - maybe what you wore to your wedding - or an accessory, and they will make the ZEISS color prescription lenses to match it. You will then receive something very unique. With the new and modern range of colors, which focuses on the latest styles and trends, almost any lens color is possible. ZEISS has also optimized the variety of materials for prescription eyeglass lenses. With the new extended and global standard color range, almost every customer request and requirement can be fulfilled.
This also applies to prescription eyeglass lenses without optical power. If a consumer falls in love with a certain frame, but does not like the prescription lenses, the eye care professional can use the ZEISS color range to add more color to your life.
