Zeiss introduces task-specific lens

November 19, 2013

Zeiss recently introduced Zeiss Officelens, a customized, task-specific lens that allows patients to choose the amount of working distance they need, from 3 to 14 feet, to help battle computer vision syndrome.

San Diego, CA-Carl Zeiss Vision recently introduced Zeiss Officelens, a new, customized task-specific lens that allows patients to choose the amount of working distance they need.

Zeiss Officelens is designed with intermediate vision in the top part of the lens, allowing a spacious view of a digital screen with comfortable posture. But unlike traditional computer-style lenses, Zeiss Officelens offers wearers a choice of three working distances to address differing workplace needs. 

· Zeiss Officelens Book provides wide possible fields of near vision and intermediate to a range of about 3 ft. (100cm)-enough to see reading material and a computer monitor. 

· Zeiss Officelens Desk extends the intermediate range to about 7 ft. (200cm), for seeing the immediate workspace. 

· Zeiss Officelens Room provides intermediate to about 14 ft. (400cm), enough for comfortable vision in meetings and when moving around the office.  

The lens is ordered with the same information required for a standard progressive: distance prescription, add, PD, and fitting height. Zeiss Officelens is available in a full range of materials, including hard resin, Trivex, polycarbonate, 1.60, 1.67, and 1.74.
