Excellent Wearing Comfort

Need top-quality spectacle lenses to enjoy perfect vision when carrying out near viewing tasks or when looking into the distance? Search no longer than the single vision lenses from ZEISS, the world-trusted pioneer of scientific optics. These high-performance prescription lenses are the best solution for short-sighted and long-sighted wearers looking for their first pair of glasses or standard everyday glasses since they are used for both distance vision and reading – the two most common reasons people wear spectacles.

ZEISS single vision lenses are fitted to the particular wearer and are optimized for good vision even in the periphery of the lens. These are great not only for books but also for reading smaller font sizes on a smartphone or tablet. Long-sighted wearers usually have blurry vision in the near zone and sometimes when looking into the distance. With ZEISS single vision lenses, you get nothing but perfect vision – and a perfect appearance (ZEISS lenses are super thin and aesthetically appealing for the wearer)! This is the best single vision product to meet your vision needs, whether for distance vision or reading.

Short Adaptation Period. Uncompromising Comfort.

ZEISS single vision lenses feature an extremely thin and flat design, which provides superb visual clarity, making everything look brighter and more natural. They can be fitted by your optician to perfectly accommodate your vision needs and reading habits. No matter whether you’re looking for distance or reading lenses, the ZEISS single vision lenses will guarantee excellent wearer tolerance and a quick adaptation. In other words, you'll hardly notice you're wearing these glasses at all!

Offered in 4 different performance design levels, the design of your ZEISS SV lenses can be optimized for your eyes and adjusted in your favorite frame to perfectly fit the shape of your face.

ZEISS Single Vision Individual Lenses

If you are hunting for the very best, then these top performance single vision lenses are designed for you! As unique as a fingerprint, they offer the ultimate experience for your eyes providing tailor-made vision. Taking into account all the data measured by your eye care professional and utilizing the most innovative production methods, these lenses offer superb visual clarity in all directions right to the edge of the lens – even with high prescriptions. At the same time, these highly individualized lenses ensure extraordinarily high wearer tolerance, even with high cylinders and prismatic prescriptions. This lens design is recommended for wearers with a condition known as associated heterophoria, which requires the use of a prismatic power. This quality class offers the ultimate in lens individualization, perfectly adapting to the needs of each concrete wearer!

ZEISS Single Vision Superb Lenses

The innovative Freeform technology is what makes these single vision lenses from ZEISS so special – and that provides the wearer with crystal-clear vision. Freeform technology made possible what was previously thought to be unachievable: the implementation of a truly individualized design. The single vision lenses in this quality class take more aspects of the individual wearer’s prescription into account in the production process including sphere, cylinder, axis, prism and prism base. The design is extremely flat and thin, and everything appears more natural and clear. In comparison to conventional single vision lenses, these Superb SV lenses achieve even greater visual comfort across the entire surface of the lens and virtually eliminate the distortions at the lens periphery. The entire lens surface is optimized point-by-point to guarantee you enjoy perfect vision.

ZEISS Single Vision Aspheric Lenses

If you are long-sighted, these high performance single lenses with an aspheric design are just what you need! Thanks to their rotationally symmetrical, aspheric front surface, ZEISS Single Vision AS lenses feature low curvature and exceptional imaging properties. In comparison to spherical design, the aspheric lenses are thinner and up to 20 percent lighter. Also, they have a significantly flatter front curvature – whilst always providing the same unbeatable visual performance. The result is that the wearer’s eyes are less magnified than with standard eyeglass lenses. Aspheric single vision lenses are a good choice for spectacle wearers with high prescriptions who are striving for visually appealing glasses that provide comfort and optimum vision.

ZEISS Single Vision Spherical Lenses

These traditional lenses are among the most popular single vision solutions. Offered in both plastic and glass, they can be used for both high and low prescriptions in the form of distance or reading lenses. They feature the optimized lens surface that ensures precise, point-focal imagery – so even at this basic level of quality you can be sure of enjoying outstanding vision. Plastic single vision lenses are therefore particularly suitable for low to moderate myopia (short-sightedness) and low hyperopia (long-sightedness). Cutting-edge manufacturing techniques made it possible to produce these exceptionally lightweight yet super durable lenses. Being highly resistant to breakage, they are the perfect choice of spectacle for children and sporting activities. For people who are very short-sighted, however, single vision lenses made from glass are still the most efficient choice.

Aesthetically Thin, Exceptionally Light.

The lighter spectacles are, the more comfortable they are to wear: Optimum comfort is achieved by making the frame and lenses as lightweight as possible. The single vision lenses from ZEISS feature uncompromising design: innovative production methods enable the manufacturer to create incredibly thin, light lenses, even with a high prescription and special visual impairments. The wearer will barely notice they’re wearing these lightweight champions at all.

Flat Lens Design – for a Natural Look

ZEISS single vision spectacle lenses feature exceptionally flat surfaces, which makes them aesthetically appealing to the wearer. Visible curvatures in the lens – the cause of the typical magnifying or 'fisheye effect' – are avoided completely or at least reduced to a minimum. This way the wearer's eyes retain a natural look, appearing neither enlarged nor shrunk.


Optimum Vision at Night and in Poor Light

Many eyeglass wearers experience poor vision at night or at twilight because reduced lighting conditions cause their pupils to dilate. By choosing ZEISS Single Vision Lenses, you get a brilliant, clear vision with enhanced contrast and more vibrant colors – even at night and at twilight. Featuring the i.Scription Technology, these spectacle lenses ensure impressive visual quality. How does it work? The wearer’s personal eye profile is objectively analyzed utilizing a special computer-guided measuring system: the ZEISS i.Profilerplus. The end result: your vision profile is as unique as your fingerprint, ensuring that typical visual defects (e.g. short- and long-sightedness) are identified accurately as well as any higher-order aberrations – defects which significantly influence your vision quality at night and at twilight. Experience crisper, improved vision with ZEISS Single Vision Lenses.

Perfect UV Protection for the Most Beautiful Days

Every pair of your favourite prescription glasses can be transformed into a pair of sunglasses of your choice, featuring exceptional UV protection and providing you with optimum vision in one lens. And these lenses come with everything you'd expect: enhanced contrast perception, less glare and an anti-reflective coating. The minimal weight and durability of the lenses also increase safety and wearer comfort, making them the perfect companion for all outdoor activities – be it sports, hiking or city trips.

Stylish and Practical Self-Tinting Lenses

Whether you’re out in the sun or indoors, you can enjoy 24 hours of excellent vision with ZEISS PhotoFusion photochromic lenses. These modern self-tinting lenses darken in seconds and clear up in just a few minutes. And of course, they feature 100% UV protection. Say goodbye to switching glasses and enjoy sun-filled days. These little all-rounders with integrated sun protection are perfect glasses for every situation.

Additional Visual Comfort in Artificial Light

Modern light sources, such as a TV, tablet, smartphone, e-reader, computer monitor or LED lamp emit a disproportionately high amount of harmful blue light. To counteract eye fatigue and visual stress, choose ZEISS spectacle lenses with a blue light filter that provides you with more comfortable vision. These are just perfect eyeglass lenses for those people who are often indoors and find the light emitted by LED light bulbs, TVs or computer monitors makes them tired or uncomfortable.

See Better, Look Better! High-Performance Lens Coatings from ZEISS

Scratches and dirt don't stand a chance with ZEISS single vision lenses featuring the innovative DuraVision® Premium lens coatings. This professional coating offers many benefits: it hardens the lens surface, making it more resistant to damage, reduces light reflections on the surface and makes the lens more dirt-resistant and easier to clean. More robust than ever, these high-performance lens coatings help you experience the most comfortable vision possible.
