Progressive Lens Portfolio

Ensure that your eyes are up to the challenge: leading-edge technologies for state-of-the-art progressive lenses

Progressive lenses are true optical masterpieces. They offer individualized support for your eyes from near to far and everything in-between. The lens design is of key importance. It must be exactly tailored to you and your visual habits. The ZEISS Progressive Lens Portfolio offers four performance levels and seven technologies, some of which are the first of their kind anywhere in the world. Did you know that the reading distance between our eyes and a smartphone is much shorter than when we read a book or a newspaper? All progressive lens designs from ZEISS take this into account. But ZEISS progressive lenses can do a lot more.

  • Progressive lenses: who for?

    What quality category should you choose when?

    Our goal is to provide you with the same comfortable vision you once enjoyed before needing glasses.

    Progressive lenses are the ideal solution for excellent vision at near, far and everything in-between – all without any perceptible transitions. Generally speaking,

    the better the progressive lens is adapted to the individual wearer and the more personalized it is, the larger the usable and optically defined areas of the lens – and the better wearer tolerance – become.

    Important to know: all quality categories build upon each other and automatically contain all of the technologies and benefits of the preceding category! In addition, all ZEISS progressive lenses feature Precision Technology:

    1. Clear optics - ZEISS Precision: Excellent vision thanks to maximum precision with the advanced eye-lens system, point-by-point optimization in real time and leading-edge freeform technology.

    2. Dynamic optics - ZEISS Design Philosophy: Comfortable, dynamic vision with fast focusing at every distance and in every direction.

    3. Thin optics - ZEISS Lens Aesthetics: the optimum balance between precise optics and thin, lightweight lenses.

    1// ZEISS Progressive Precision Pure: optimized for your eyes

    Digital devices pose major challenges to our eyes every day

    Our lives increasingly revolve around digital devices. You may not be aware of it, but these devices require a shorter reading distance than books and other print media. Moving our eyes constantly and quickly from near to far and back again the whole day long – this must all be taken into account by a progressive lens to enable comfortable, clear vision.

    See for yourself how ZEISS Progressive Precision Pure can increase your visual comfort when using a smartphone or reading a newspaper – all thanks to our unique innovation Digital Inside® Technology.

    Optimized for eyes + frame + face

    Anatomy meets technology

    Posture are never exactly the same! The anatomy of our faces and the interplay of frame, lenses and face determines how we see with progressive lenses. A modern progressive lens featuring high-tech technology should take the shape of the wearer's face into account to ensure that he or she enjoys optimum 3D vision. ZEISS FaceAdapt Technology integrates precisely these parameters in the production of the lens.
