People who need strong prescription glasses know this problem: The weaker the eyes, the thicker and heavier the required lenses. This does not only create cosmetic problems for short and farsighted patients. The solution: HighIndex plastic lenses from ZEISS. They are so sleek that only one thing leaves a mark: Their superior quality.
Special plastic materials and optimised lens designs make the innovatively manufactured HighIndex ZEISS Lenses comfortable and also fashionably sleek: Compared to conventional lenses, HighIndex are up to 40 percent thinner – a critical aesthetic benefit. After all, lenses for short sighted and far sighted patients do distort the way others see our eyes.
Thick lenses that are externally concave can greatly enlarge the eyes of farsighted patients who wear plus lenses. The effect is called the bulging eye syndrome, and it makes the eyes look as if they are bulging out.
To the contrary, minus lenses, minimise the eyes of short-sighted patients and make their facial contours appear narrower behind the glasses. Both effects are not desirable for the patient and give them unattractive profiles.
HighIndex addresses both problems: The plastic material used to manufacture these lenses and a perfectly optimised lens design guarantee an absolutely natural look and unbeatable comfort no matter how strong the lenses are. The best choice for patients with more extreme vision problems: The exceptionally thin Clarlet lenses from ZEISS – also available in aspheric flat design.
The benefits of aspherically cut lenses: They are thinner than conventionally manufactured lenses and less concave, but do deliver the same correction levels and excellent vision results.
Those who wear progressive lenses that have an invisible transition from the reading zone and remote vision zone cut right into the lens enjoy the best possible vision thanks to ZEISS HighIndex lenses. Regardless of how strong of a lens you need: HighIndex lenses will give you optimum vision and maximum attractiveness paired with fashionable, contemporary spectacles aesthetics.
By the way: HighIndex glasses are also available in self-tinting designs. ZEISS HighIndex with PhotoFusion® automatically adjust to changing light conditions by changing the lens shades. The perfect solution for highly mobile people who consider their glasses a constant companion.
Our eyes are our most important sensory organ. And since each eye is as unique as a fingerprint, it requires a customised visual analysis at your optometrist.
