Finally, a more relaxed drive!

There is something captivating about driving a car. Yet many people still feel insecure and inadequately supported by their glasses in tricky conditions – such as during a storm, at night or at dawn or dusk. Traditional progressive lenses in particular are not optimum for driving a car. Using a combination of an optimised lens design and a special coating, ZEISS DriveSafe offers you a lens for everyday use with special features to make driving a more relaxed experience. Put your trust in ZEISS technologies for good vision when driving.

How you benefit

Benefits for glasses wearers

ZEISS DriveSafe lenses are a visual dream come true for many drivers.

  • You can wear DriveSafe lenses like normal glasses for the entire day and benefit from these features for a safe driving experience.
  • A more relaxed feeling when driving thanks to better vision in the challenging light conditions caused by low light or bad weather.
  • Reduced discomfort glare for drivers who are frequently irritated by oncoming car lights and the scattered light from street lamps.
  • For progressive lens wearers: optimum vision comfort when looking at the road, the dashboard, the rear-view mirror and the side mirrors.
     

For everyone who wants a more relaxed driving experience

Whether we drive a lot or a little, good vision while driving is important to all of us. Driving in bad weather and tricky conditions is uncomfortable and stressful for many people. The demands placed on the optimum driving glasses are very similar.

Drivers who wear glasses would like to have:

  1. better vision in bad weather, at night or at dawn or dusk
  2. less glare
  3. fewer vision problems when shifting focus


DriveSafe meets this need for single vision and progressive lenses. The secret is: glasses with DriveSafe lenses are intended for everyday use and can be worn for the entire day.

Glasses for everyday use with a ton of know-how

ZEISS Luminance Design™ technology

ZEISS DriveSafe features an optimised lens design that takes into account the size of our pupils in poor light. There is one lens design for single vision lenses and one for progressives. The result: improved and unimpaired vision when driving in poor light.

ZEISS DuraVision DriveSafe lens coating

With DriveSafe, ZEISS has used a special new coating to take into account the many different situations during driving when our eyes are confronted with glare. The DuraVision® DriveSafe coating by ZEISS partially reflects wavelengths in the high-energy, visible portion of the blue light spectrum, including the band around the wavelength of 450 nm. DuraVision® DriveSafe Coating by ZEISS therefore reduces discomfort glare by up to 64%* compared to premium AR coatings.

*With DuraVision DriveSafe 64% less test drivers reported issues with glare with the new coating than with other premium AR coatings.

ZEISS DriveSafe lens design for progressives

ZEISS offers a special design to make driving with progressive lenses more comfortable and safer. The optimised vision zones make it easier for the eyes to refocus when moving between the road ahead and the dashboard and the rear view or side mirrors. Horizontal movements of the head are reduced. At the same time, the near zone is designed so that DriveSafe glasses can be worn all day long – they are also suitable for other activities, including reading.**
