Functional tints with something extra

For sports addicts the right gear is a must, along with the right sunglasses for overall performance and clarity. Specifically-designed functional tints can aid your customers with comfortable and effortless viewing regardless of the environment.

ProGolf

ProGolf Llenses don’t only reduce the intensity of bright light but it enhances contrast perception through the selective absorption of specific wavelengths. This means that, even with constant transitions between light and shadow during the game, the golfer enjoys optimum visibility. They can see any unevenness or bumps in the course more clearly than with traditional sunglasses.

ProGolf is the combination of a contrast-enhancing tint and the high-quality, Super ET coating, making it the ideal sun protection for golfers.

90% light absorption for extreme light conditions

Offer your customers sports lenses with over 90% light absorption to provide the best protection in extreme light conditions (for example on glaciers).

 

Skylet® Sport – Dark brown sun protection lens with 90% light absorption. This lens can be used for driving, but it is recommended for dazzling light and glare, e. g. on glaciers, in high mountainous areas, on water and for flying. Very dark brown tint.

 

Skylet® Fun – The brightest Skylet® lens with 70% light absorption. Driving is possible, but the lens is particularly suited to inclement weather conditions where visibility is hazy, e. g. for skiing, gliding, hiking or water sports. Aesthetically attractive, orange-brown tint.

ZEISS Sport Lenses

Lifestyle and sports frames often require something extra.

Wrapped frames require special prescription lenses. These frames protect customers from lateral glare, UV light or wind. This confronts the optician with a special challenge:

  • The extreme tilt of these frames changes the perceived perspective.
  • Using traditional lenses cause aberrations and distortions that impair vision.

The optimum solution

ZEISS Sport Lenses provide optimum optical correction for all wrapped frames, ensuring that aberrations are a thing of the past.

Technology for ZEISS wrapped lenses, completed with DuraVision® Sun UV, turns the challenge of extreme conditions into a fun activity.
