ZEISS DuraVision® Platinum treatment.

High-quality lenses also require top-quality treatments in terms of protection, accessories or design. That’s why we offer cutting-edge technology like DuraVision® Platinum, the toughest treatment ever.

DuraVision®Platinum technology offers the highest quality prescription lenses. ZEISS DuraVision ® Platinum is the premium coating that, in addition to providing excellent anti-reflective properties, offers premium quality for the ultimate protection that makes ZEISS lenses extremely strong and resistant.


Everyday necessities call for tough, dirt-resistant lenses that are easy to clean, which is why tough anti-reflective coatings are offered, although the quality of these coatings can vary considerably.


These hard and light lenses are very strong, resistant to dirt and easy to clean, while offering extraordinary anti-reflective properties. An integrated system of layers compacted by ion irradiation results in a lens surface that is three times harder than the previous generation of organic lenses.

1. More robust

The new DuraVision® Platinum lenses are three times harder than the previous generation of hard plastic lenses with anti-reflective treatment and 35% harder than mineral lenses.

2. Resistant to dirt

The patented fifth antistatic layer prevents the formation of static electricity. Since neither dust nor lint is attracted to the lens surface, the lens stays clean longer.

3. Easy to clean

The extremely smooth surface makes cleaning easy. Lenses with high contact angles repel oil and water better. They have a contact angle greater than 110 ° (normally 95 °).

4. Anti-reflective

A new, less noticeable blue reflection color increases the light reflectance of the lens, resulting in even better vision. They show 20% less than conventional lenses.

ZEISS DuraVision® BlueProtect treatment.

ZEISS DuraVision ® BlueProtect is a treatment developed specifically for those who spend most of their time indoors and are exposed to blue-violet light from LEDs and from television screens, computers or tablets.

Tinted or photosensitive lenses absorb some of the blue-violet light.

ZEISS DuraVision® BlueProtect reflects parts of the blue-violet light emitted by these sources, preventing light from entering the eye.

The ZEISS treatment reduces transmission in the 380–455 nm spectrum (blue light risk) to a PPI of 15, while maintaining a high transmission level above 460 nm.

ZEISS DuraVision® DriveSafe treatment.

Glare can pose a risk as it reduces the visibility of objects and the eye’s sensitivity to contrast. In particular when driving at night, the high intensity of light from the headlights of cars with xenon or LEDs can irritate the eyes.

With ZEISS DriveSafe lenses, ZEISS introduces a new category of lens for everyday use. It has been specifically designed to meet the vision needs of people who want to feel safer and more comfortable driving with their everyday glasses.


ZEISS has developed an everyday lens based on three elements to make driving safer and more comfortable.


ZEISS Luminance Design Technology considers pupil size in low light situations.

ZEISS DuraVision DriveSafe treatment reduces the perception of glare by up to 64%.

Up to 43% larger intermediate vision area to facilitate focus change between dashboard and mirrors. And up to 14% larger distance zone for a broader view of the road.

Better vision in low light conditions for safer and more comfortable driving on road.

Reduced glare at night caused by oncoming vehicles or street lights.

Clear view of the road, dashboard, rear view mirror and side mirrors.

ZEISS UVProtect Technology in Clear Lenses.

UV radiation is always present. All year round, all day, both in winter and summer, in sunny weather and even on cloudy days. UV rays have some positive effects on people, for example it stimulates the production of vitamin D. Unfortunately, prolonged exposure to UV rays also poses serious health risks.

Partial UV Protection

Total UV Protection (Zeiss)

  • Clear lenses with UVProtect from Zeiss darken when photographed through a UV camera.
  • ZEISS UV protection sets an industry standard by offering a UV protection level comparable to that of sunglasses up to 400nm in clear lens materials.
  • Total UV protection of the eyes and the skin around them.
  • Clear lenses for everyday glasses offer the same UV protection as premium sunglasses.

Don't put your eye health at risk.

Continuous exposure to UV radiation is not only harmful to the skin, it can also cause eye damage. Over time, it can cause various types of eye diseases and accelerate the aging of the tissue around the eyes.


Corneal burn caused by excessive exposure to UV rays.


Opacity of the lens, usually due to excessive exposure to UV light.


The aging of the skin of the eyelids makes the skin thicker and very marked wrinkles are generated.
