Digital Occupational Lenses


The visual demands of our work environment has drastically changed. The dependency on desktops, laptops, tablets, and phones in nearly every industry means greater demands on our eyes. Unfortunately many spectacle lens companies have not changed the design to fit the changing visual demands of the workplace. This may be why current studies show that 63% of people are not satisfied with their glasses when at work.

Fortunately, Zeiss have developed a series of lenses specifically designed for the current visual demands of our digital lives. The suite of Zeiss digital occupational lenses provide clearer, more comfortable vision for a variety of activities like single screen or multiple screen computer use, cooking, gaming, gardening, playing a musical instrument, woodworking, sewing and much more.

A Zeiss digital occupational lens can relieve symptoms of task-related vision problems:

  • Eye strain
  • Headaches
  • Tilting the chin up to see the computer screen
  • Blurred vision
  • Dry or irritated eyes
  • Leaning in toward the computer screen
  • Neck and back pain
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Double vision and “after images”

Occupational visual demands are quite different from seeing in the distance or reading. That’s why, for most people, contact lenses or glasses prescribed for every day wear can cause significant discomfort and vision problems when performing specific tasks. For many people, the solution is Zeiss digital occupational lenses.

When choosing an occupational lens, the lens must meet the requirements of the specific task. It is important to consider the number of computer screens or devices used throughout the day, the working distance of the task, and expectation of viewing distance. With the Carl Zeiss suite of digital occupational lenses, there is a tailor-made solution for any application.
