Available lens options include single vision, bi-focal, tri-focal, and progressive. See below to view which lens best suits your vision needs.
Single Vision: Single vision lenses have the same optical focal point or correction over the entire area of the lens.
Bi-Focal: Bifocal lenses usually have a straight visible line that defines separation of the lens. The top area is for distance vision and the bottom area is reserved for reading. Bi-focal lens serve as a great vision solution for those individuals with presbyopia.
Tri-Focal: The trifocal has three separate areas within the lens. Each area is meant for different focal distances such as, near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and intermediate viewing.
Progressive: Progressive lenses are very similar to tri-focal lenses. However, with progressive lenses, there is a smoother transition within the whole lenses from distance viewing to near vision. The smoother transition eliminates the segmented lines which allows for clear vision at all distances.

“Unbelievable, incredible clarity! I picked up my eyeglasses this evening and have had virtually no adjustment period with my Zeiss Individual, unlike prior experiences with other lenses. I haven’t experienced this level of clarity since having to forego my gas-permeable contact lenses for eyeglasses ten years ago! Thank you.” – Arlene

ZEISS DuraVision Platinum
The moment your lenses survive even the toughest tests.
Tough on reflections. Tough on scratches. Tough on dirt and smudges.
DuraVision Tough on Scratches
Superior CLARITY with Real-World Toughness.
What does superior clarity mean in an eyeglass lens? How about the near elimination of distracting glare as well as scratches and smudges that interfere with your vision? Lenses that are easy to keep clear and clean, and are tough enough to last as long as your prescription?
Introducing ZEISS DuraVision Platinum, the anti-reflective lenses setting a new standard for clarity, cleanability and toughness. Made by the company that invented anti-reflective lenses.
Clarity in an anti-reflective (AR) lens is measured by the amount of light reflected from the lens surface. The fewer the reflections, the greater the clarity. This means your vision is sharper in high-glare conditions such as driving at night or working on your computer, and others can see your eyes more clearly.
ZEISS DuraVision Platinum reduces light reflections by over 20% compared to other anti-reflective lenses¹, giving you maximum clarity, day and night.
For a lens to be clear, it needs to be free of scratches. ZEISS DuraVision Platinum is three times tougher on scratches compared to conventional AR lenses, thanks to an integrated system of densely-packed coating layers on the lens surface. In laboratory testing with a dry cloth, DuraVision Platinum still looked new after 600 wipes while previous generations of AR showed significant scratching.
No matter how careful you are, your lenses will inevitably be exposed to dirt and smudges. That’s why ZEISS incorporates advanced technology to keep your lenses cleaner, longer.
The only thing clearer is no lens at all.
ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect
The moment you can relax knowing your eyes are protected.
Blue-violet light is everywhere.
Damaging blue-violet light can be found everywhere and the more you’re exposed to it, the greater your risk of eye damage. Increasingly, health professionals recommend that people of all ages protect their eyes from excessive blue-violet light exposure. ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect shields your eyes from damaging blue-violet rays, indoors or out.
A health threat hiding in plain sight
Like invisible UV radiation, exposure to blueviolet light can affect your eyes and your health. And the threat is increasing as we are exposed to increasing levels of blue-violet light. The American Macular Degeneration Foundation warns that blue-violet light may contribute to retinal damage and macular degeneration. Viewing digital devices at night can also disrupt the brain’s production of melatonin, causing sleep disturbances.
Shielding your eyes from damaging rays
ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect is specially designed for people who spend a good deal of time in front of their computer, television or tablet, or are frequently exposed to LED and CFL lighting. The advanced light-filtering system of BlueProtect blocks a significant amount of the most harmful blue-violet light. ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect gives your eyes enhanced protection from potential blue-violet light damage.
