Any lens that isn’t custom-made for you is a compromise which affects your vision. Unlike ordinary, mass-produced progressive lenses, Carl Zeiss Individual 2 progressive lenses are tailor-made to provide the optimal balance of distance, intermediate and reading vision.
Carl Zeiss Individual 2 progressive lenses are more advanced than other “free form” or “digital” lenses. Individual 2 progressive lenses are made one pair at a time and refined with microscopic precision to deliver maximum clarity, making them superior to other progressive lenses. Production calculations are based on the prescription, along with several additional measurements, and specific data pertaining to the frame fit. The Zeiss Individual 2 progressive lenses are manufactured up to six times more accurately than ordinary progressive lenses, and deliver up to 50% wider viewing area with increased clarity.
Ordinary, mass-produced progressive lenses cannot be customized to optimize all of the unique aspects of your prescription or the way your eyes work together. This results in a reduced reading area, difficulty working on the computer and restricted binocular vision which contributes to eye fatigue, reduced quality of vision, headaches, neck pain, and more.
Using sophisticated head-tracking technology, Zeiss measured the viewing geometry and ergonomic behavior of over 14,000 progressive lens wearers. Carl Zeiss engineers used this data to more closely align viewing zones to the wearer preferences established by the research.
The result was patented technology that delivers:
Point by point optimization over 100’s of points on the lens.
Viewing zones aligned to wearer preferences
Near zone aligned to match average range of eye rotations during near vision work
Engineered for smooth transition from distance, to mid-range, to reading
Utilizes Horizontal Symmetry (exclusive to Zeiss)
When it comes to progressive lenses quality does matter, and so does the technician fitting the lens. This is not the place to skimp on quality or allow someone with limited experience to assist you. When it comes to your vision, don’t settle for less than Carl Zeiss lenses from Artisan Optics.
