If you want to follow Goethe's recommendations, you can ask your optician to show you the various tints. Talk to him about when you primarily intend to use the coloured lenses as sunglasses, daily or only for special occasions; and then ask the question which may be more difficult to answer: which colour to choose? ZEISS' new colour range includes a first-class premium selection: black, brown, grey, grey-green, blue and rosé for single colour lenses; black, brown, grey, grey-green, blue and grey-blue for graduated tints; and pistachio, cinnamon, stone and jeans for the bicolour lenses. There are also trendy fashion colours. As fascinating as these vibrant colours are – unless you plan to own more than one pair of spectacles, less is more when it comes to colour. You should also choose a light tint if you plan to wear the spectacles frequently or for extended periods. The eyes' sensitivity to light also plays a part when choosing coloured lenses. It is also important that people can still see your eyes clearly. The best thing to do is go to your optician in your favourite outfit, which will help him to help you find the perfect colour and tint. When choosing colours, women should apply their usual eye make-up and choose the tint accordingly. You should also consider which clothes you wear often. This makes it easier for your optician to coordinate the colour choice of the prescription spectacle lens tint from his collection.
Do you want even more individuality? Then have the colour mixed just for you. You can give your ophthalmic optician an item of clothing - maybe your wedding outfit - or an accessory, and they will make the ZEISS colour prescription spectacle lenses to match it. You will then receive something very unique. With the new and modernised range of colours, which focuses on the latest styles and trends, almost any lens colour is possible. ZEISS has also optimised the variety of materials for prescription spectacle lenses. With the new extended and global standard colour range, almost every customer request and requirement can be fulfilled.
This also applies to prescription spectacle lenses without optical power. If a consumer falls in love with a certain spectacle frame, but does not like the prescription spectacle lenses, the optician can use the ZEISS colour range to add more colour to your life.
