ZEISS Polarised lenses

The Ultimate in Sunglass Optics

Polarised lenses combines a polarisation filter with contrast enhancing tinting for a unique visual experience in extreme light conditions.

Thanks to the colour-enhancing effect Polarised lenses not only reduces glare and hence increases safety, but also offers excellent colour rendition.

Polarisation technology know-how

Light reflected at the surface of a transparent medium is partly polarised. The majority of this light (depending on the angle of incidence and the surface) is polarised perpendicularly. The polarisation filter in Polarised lenses is orientated horizontally and ensures that this reflected, perpendicularly reflected light is not let through. In this way, distracting reflections, such as those when driving into the sun on a wet road, are practically eliminated by Polarised lenses.

Our Recommendations for Polarised lenses

  • Optimum field of application: Anywhere where reflecting surfaces are a source of distraction, e. g. when driving, for water and winter sports
  • The optometrist can open patients' eyes to the excellent effect of the lens
  • DuraVision® Platinum - unimpaired vision, also with lateral incidence of light

 

Thanks to the colour-enhancing effect Polarised lenses not only reduces glare and hence increases safety, but also offers excellent colour rendition. A wide range of prescription Polarised lenses are currently available in Australia and New Zealand, however Polarised Plano lenses are only available by special order. Please contact your local ZEISS representative for further details.
