ZEISS DRIVESAFE LENSES
Technology designed to improve confidence behind the wheel
CONFIDENCE IN ALL CONDITIONS
Darkness, street lighting, headlights and bad weather can really challenge your vision when driving.
To combat this, the ZEISS DuraVision DriveSafe coating – combined with innovative Luminance Design® Technology – helps wearers have confidence when driving. After all, one of the most important safety features you have on the road is your eyes.
Based on a consumer survey conducted with 105 existing ZEISS DriveSafe lens wearers, 82% agreed they felt more confident driving in all weather conditions.
When wearing ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses you can benefit from:
• Confidence when driving in all weather conditions and better vision in low light thanks to ZEISS Luminance Design Technology
• Reduced perceived glare thanks to the ZEISS DuraVision DriveSafe, a special, premium anti-reflective coating
• A comfortable shift of focus for varifocal lens wearers, when looking between the road, the dashboard and the rear-view mirror
• Sunglass-level UV protection in a clear lens – all our ZEISS clear, plastic lenses now come with UVProtect® Technology as standard to ensure full UV protection, whatever the weather
HOW IT WORKS
One pair of glasses for everyday use and safer driving, ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses are specifically optimised for driving. These lenses help you enjoy better vision in all weather and light conditions, protect your eyes from perceived glare and make it easier for you to shift your viewing focus from sat nav and rear-view mirror to windscreen – quickly and often.
They’re suitable for the majority of glasses wearers and are intended for everyday use as well as behind the wheel.
Market research conducted by ZEISS Vision Care highlighted the three most common visual challenges drivers experience:
1. POOR VISIBILITY IN LOW-LIGHT OR BAD WEATHER CONDITIONS
2. GLARE FROM ONCOMING CARS AND STREETLIGHTS AT NIGHT
3.DIFFICULTY REFOCUSING WHEN THE EYES SWITCH BETWEEN THE ROAD, DASHBOARD AND MIRRORS
ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses were developed, considering these challenges, to be an everyday lens optimised to make driving more comfortable:
1. DRIVING IN LOW-LIGHT
Providing better vision in low-light thanks to Luminance Design® Technology by ZEISS
2. DRIVING IN CHANGING LIGHT
Reducing perceived glare thanks to ZEISS DuraVision DriveSafe UV coating
3. DRIVING IN VARIFOCALS
Improving vision for varifocal wearers when the eyes switch between the road, dashboard and mirrors, thanks to the optimised ZEISS DriveSafe Lens design with larger visual zones
LUMINANCE DESIGN® TECHNOLOGY
ZEISS DriveSafe features an optimised lens design that takes into account the size of pupils in low-light, providing better vision when in more difficult conditions.
Bright = small pupil with a large depth of focus
Dark = large pupils with a limited depth of focus
Low-light = various pupil sizes resulting in changing depth of focus
DURAVISION® DRIVESAFE COATING
Especially when driving at night, the high luminance from streetlights or car headlights with Xenon or LED technology affects the vision. Glare can be a risk as it reduces the visibility of objects and sensitivity of the eye to contrast. DuraVision® DriveSafe Coating partially reflects these wavelengths, which reduces perceived glare.
ZEISS DRIVESAFE LENS DESIGN
Dynamic vision is essential when driving. To make it easier for varifocal lens wearers to quickly refocus between the road, dashboard and mirrors, ZEISS developed the new DriveSafe Progressive Lenses with optimised distance and intermediate viewing zones, reducing the need for horizontal head movement.
Up to 43% larger** mid-distance zone for easier focus when switching between dashboard and mirrors. And up to 14% larger** far-distance visual zone for a wider view of the road.
