The progressive lenses are optical masterpieces passing smoothly from the viewing area close to the far vision zone through the progression corridor also called the transition zone. But not all progressive lenses are the same. Your progressive lenses must meet your requirements and be adapted to your lifestyle and, of course, your budget.
They must provide you with a natural and comfortable vision. It is important that you fully understand how your new progressive lenses work. With more than 100 years of experience in producing precision ophthalmic lenses and findings from extensive market research, ZEISS has now created four different types of progressive lenses.
If you want to be able to enjoy good vision again with your progressive lenses, this type of glass is for you.
Perhaps you do not fully understand how the digital age has profoundly changed the requirements of our vision in recent years. When using a smartphone or similar digital tool, your reading distance is different from reading a book or newspaper. This means that the near vision area of your lenses needs to be adapted accordingly.
So, you fit type 1 progressive lenses = Zeiss Precision Pure + Zeelool Nelson Oval White Glasses
Generally, trends in frames do not change as quickly as fashion trends, but one thing is certain: larger frames enjoy a net renewed interest. Following this trend could be a problem with your progressive lenses.
Experienced wearers of progressive lenses know that not all glass designs are suitable for all frames. You may, therefore, have to sacrifice the quality of your vision because some areas of the progressive lens may be trimmed when inserted into the frame. You may also have difficulty adapting if you go from a small to a larger frame because you will have to relearn how to move your eyes to move from one visual field to another. The near vision area is suddenly lower on the glass! Your eyes must get used to it.
It's easy: Thanks to ZEISS FrameFit ® + Technology and ZEISS Adaptation Control Technology, for the first time in the world, your optician can optimize your lenses for your new frame, so that important areas of the lens are no longer trimmed and you must not change your visual habits.
It goes without saying that this type of ZEISS progressive lenses is also suitable for the digital age! (see Type 1)
So you fit type 2 progressive lenses = ZEISS Precision Plus + Zeelool Henna Rectangle Pink Glasses
There are no two identical faces. There are not two eyes, two noses or two similar ears. Even the right side and the left side of your face are not symmetrical. If the uniqueness of your face is not taken into account during the production of progressive lenses, you may not be able to fully exploit their optical performance.
Or you may need powerful glasses for distance vision, or you've been wearing glasses since childhood.
You must ensure that your new progressive lenses are exactly adapted to the individual parameters of your face.
In general, the more the progressive lenses are adapted to the face of the wearer and the more personalized they are, the more the use of the three-dimensional vision and the performances in far vision are optimized. All this is possible thanks to FaceFit Technology.
Taking into account the precise physiognomy of the wearer, e.g. the way he looks through the mount and the seat of the mount on his nose and ears, the progressive lenses manufactured provide exactly the necessary visual aid.
For comparison, imagine that you are looking through a telescope. Like progressive lenses, this optical system is very elaborate, but if you do not place the telescope at the right distance from your eye, you will perceive a completely fuzzy image.
It goes without saying that this type of progressive lenses offers the same advantages as types 1 and 2.
So you fit type 3 progressive lenses = ZEISS Precision Superb + Zeelool Caleb Semi-Rimless Black Glasses
Today, our lives have many different facets; each of us has habits, activities and of course a job of his own. We are the culmination of this plurality and we need progressive lenses incorporating all these different factors. Perhaps you spend a lot of the day at your drawing table if you are an architect, for example, or in front of your computer. Do you take care of your grandchildren on a regular basis and do your eyes have to constantly move from a close-up to a distant shot? Or maybe you are a civil registrar and you have to pass some papers on your desk to the bride and groom in front of you.
Are progressive lenses necessary in such situations? Yes, the design of your progressive lenses and the position of the vision zones can be tailored to your main daily activities.
All of this is possible thanks to IndividualFit ® Technology. Your progressive lenses combine all the technological possibilities and give you a natural and comfortable vision, almost like when you did not need glasses.
So you fit type 4 progressive lenses = ZEISS Precision Individual 2 + Zeelool Cynthia Aviator Titanium Glasses
Ask your optician about your new progressive lenses and find the best solution for your needs. For example, people who wear progressive lenses for the first time and wearers with specific visual needs should carefully consider the possibilities offered by advanced progressive lens technology. Progressive lenses are a valuable investment in better vision. After all, our eyes are our most important sensory organ. We perceive nearly 80% of our environment using our eyes.
