ZEISS Digital Lenses

Perfect all-day glasses for your digital lifestyle

On average, we look at our smartphones, tablets or TV screens for almost five hours every day. And we glance at our mobile phones as many as 80 times a day! And these figures are set to rise in the future. Small font sizes and the constant switching of our viewing focus from near to far objects demands the utmost from our eyes. From the age of 30 onwards, this can lead to digital eyestrain or, as the experts put it, the Computer Vision Syndrome.

ZEISS Digital lenses offer the perfect solution by enabling fast, comfortable focusing no matter where you look. These lenses are ideal not only for digital devices, but also for reading books and magazines.

The digital world we live in

The increasing use of smartphones, navigation devices, and tablets is changing our visual behaviour. Our eyes are having to become accustomed to a new range of near vision to accommodate the shorter distance at which we hold digital devices compared to a newspaper, magazine or a book. Using digital technology also requires your eyes to constantly switch between different distances. The changes in focus required to sustain clear near vision demands a lot from our eyes leading to possible eye strain.

A new challenge for our eyes

The use of digital technology places strong demands on our eyes. In just a fraction of a second they have to move between far and near: from viewing something in the distance to small digital displays, tiny fonts and tightly packed information, and then back again. This shift in focus is controlled by the ciliary muscle within our eye, which controls the lens of the eye. The lens of our eye constantly adapts to the rapidly changing text we may encounter daily, ensuring that we can see in clear focus at all viewing distances. Headache and neck strain, burning or tired eyes may be the result, particularly as we become older.

ZEISS Digital lenses are specifically designed for the use of digital devices such as tablets or smartphones. Optimisation of the near zone takes into account the typical movements of the eyes and shorter reading distance required by these devices. This design optimally supports the ciliary muscle, therefore making it easier for you to focus your vision on near and distance objects or text. This may help to prevent symptoms of eye strain and fatigue.
