Selecting the best eye lenses for your optical condition is crucial to preserving good eye health and achieving optimal visual acuity. ZEISS lenses, renowned for their precision and quality, provide a number of advantages that can enhance ocular outcomes and minimise risks to eye health. Through a combination of rigorous research, advanced technology and expert design, Zeiss lenses have demonstrated their potential to enhance visual acuity, reduce myopia progression, and provide greater comfort than other brands of lenses.
Improved Visual Acuity
ZEISS has demonstrated that their lenses, such as the trifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs), can greatly enhance visual acuity and patient happiness. Multiple studies have shown that their trifocal intraocular lenses exceptionally improve near, intermediate and distance vision of patients wearing Zeiss glasses or utilising the lenses. This improvement in visual acuity contributes to clearer, sharper vision across each distance tested.
Intraocular lenses are artificial lens implants that replace the natural lens of the eye. Most suited to patients undergoing cataract surgery or who are over 55 and aren’t suitable for laser correction. Previous generations of lenses, single and multifocal, across brands, were limited to one or two distances that they could serve, resulting in the need to wear glasses as well as lenses to achieve clarity between distances. Current trifocal technology can provide short, long, and in-between visual clarity to its user, helping another demographic of people go glasses-free.
Myopia or nearsightedness is a condition that is rapidly growing to affect more and more people around the globe. Over 25% of Australians reported that they had myopia in 2018 with estimates suggesting that more than half the global population will be nearsighted by 2050. Already more than 80% of Chinese students under the age of 20 are nearsighted.
ZEISS lenses reduce the progression of myopia by actively addressing its root causes. By focusing sight to mitigate the elongation of the eyeball, which is a factor in the onset and progression of myopia, ZEISS lenses serve a critical role in slowing the advancement of myopia and protecting eye health.
Optometrists, including experts like David Shanahan, affirm that alongside early myopia detection, ZEISS myopia management lenses have the potential to reduce the progression of myopia by a remarkable 60-80%.
ZEISS lenses routinely surpass other eye lenses in the flatness and decreased thickness of the lens. Resulting in fewer distortions and increased user comfort. ZEISS glasses limit peripheral distortions meaning they are more photogenic, facial features should appear more accurately sized in photos and upon outside viewing. With thinner lenses, ZEISS glasses are lighter on the face making for a much more comfortable experience.
With an estimated 13 million Australians are affected by a variety of long-term eye health conditions. ZEISS lenses can be personalised to address your specific eye health concerns. Whether by treating specific refractive problems (such as near-sightedness, long-sightedness, and astigmatism) or offering specialised lenses to mitigate chronic eye conditions. Optometrists and other eye care specialists can prescribe ZEISS lenses after thorough eye examinations and one-on-one consultations, making sure that people can benefit from the best possible lens options. We also offer ZEISS lens wipes so you can keep your lenses in the best condition possible!
ZEISS lenses provide an opportunity for individuals to improve the quality of their vision and protect their eye health against chronic conditions. With their focus on visual acuity, specialised eye condition mitigation and comfort, ZEISS provides a lens perfect for you.
