Carl Zeiss Vision’s Precision progressive lenses are designed for patients tied to smartphones, tablets, and computers.
Today’s progressive lens wearers are unlike any we’ve seen. Like most Americans, they check their mobile phones frequently and spend time viewing other digital screens. They hold phones, e-readers, and tablet devices closer to their eyes than they do printed materials. Plus, viewing digital devices requires increased convergence.
Carl Zeiss Vision, Inc. created the ZEISS Precision portfolio of lenses for progressives wearers whose days involve significant screen time. Each of the four Precision lenses features Digital Inside‘ Technology, which takes into account print and digital reading
The value-priced Precision Pure lens features a near zone that is wider and deeper than that of standard progressive lenses. This reduces visual strain when reading print materials or viewing digital devices.
The free-form Precision Plus lens incorporates FrameFit+‘ Technology and takes into account the lens’ size and shape. FrameFit+ helps avoid cut-out errors where too much of the near zone is removed during edging. This means patients can choose trendy frames without compromising their vision.
ZEISS’ FaceAdapt™ technology used in its Precision Superb lenses incorporates larger fields of vision. Fittings take into account how patients wear their frames physiologically, including PD, fitting height, pantoscopic tilt, vertex distance, and frame wrap. These lenses optimize the vision zone based on their exact position and the frame’s facial fit.
The upgraded Individual‘ 2 lens retains all of its previous features and now includes IndividualFit™ technology. Doctors select one of three lens designs based on each patient’s primary daily activities: the near design for prolonged periods of near vision, including smartphone use; the intermediate design for extended computer use and dynamic activities like driving; and the balanced design for all-around activities.
Luminance Design‘ technology personalizes the Individual 2 further, accommodating pupil size changes under different light conditions. The result is a more-precise calculation and distribution of astigmatism, plus optimization of the optical aberrations encountered by a pupil in overlapping areas over the lens, simulating the moving eye.
The ZEISS Precision portfolio of lenses enable ECPs to create a myriad of personalized lenses based on each patient’s lifestyle and the digital devices that they most often use.
