Spectacle lenses for driving

For excellent wearer comfort and greater safety on the road. These lenses help you enjoy better vision at night or in difficult weather conditions, protect your eyes from reflections and make it easier for you to shift your viewing focus – quickly and often. The optimum extra safety feature from your everyday pair of glasses.

The everyday pair of glasses for driving

Being able to see well is a prerequisite for safe driving because on the road our eyes are working overtime: constantly shifting focus between the street, the GPS and the rearview and wing mirrors. Inclement weather or adverse light conditions often make it difficult to see. The lenses for driving minimise this visual stress when driving and make it easier for drivers to see, enabling you to arrive at your destination safely and stress-free.

Reduced reflections. Help you estimate the distances better.

Unfavourable weather, poor light conditions, irritating glare (e.g. from the headlights of oncoming cars, street lamps or reflections off the wet street) and shifting your viewing focus quickly and often are potential visual challenges for many drivers. The design of the lenses accommodates drivers’ special visual needs.

These lenses help you:

  • Judge distances and driving situations more quickly
  • Improve your vision at night
  • Reduce irritations caused by reflected lights
  • Ensure you can quickly and easily adjust your viewing focus to your driving surroundings

See better during the day, in twilight conditions and at night.

Our pupil size changes over the course of the day: the more surrounding light there is, the smaller the pupil – and vice-versa. Traditional spectacle lenses don’t accommodate this change within their designs. DriveSafe Lenses from ZEISS stand out from the crowd because their optimised lens design accommodates the wearer’s enlarged pupil diameter when driving in poor light. This lens design also increases contrast, improves vision in inclement weather and reduces possible distortions within the lens periphery – particularly with progressive lenses.

The end result: you have better vision and can more precisely judge viewing distances in stressful driving situations e.g. at night or in rain, fog or snow.

A more comfortable driving experience with progressive lenses.

The use for driving is also available in a progressive lens design. The specially optimised near, mid-distance and transition zones ensure comfortable shift of viewing focus, reducing horizontal head movements and enabling significantly more dynamic vision for the wearer.
