Zeiss Vision unveils ClearView Single Vision lenses


The lens giant pairs precision vision of freeform-optimized lenses with the cost benefit of standard single vision lenses.

Zeiss Vision unveils ClearView Single Vision lenses

Zeiss Vision announced today that they are releasing a new lens. The ZEISS ClearView Single Vision lenses incorporate the attributes of the complex single vision freeform lens into the standard single vision lens design (both surfaced and stock), which is ranked as the most sold ophthalmic lens type worldwide. Zeiss ClearView Single Vision lenses boast both form and function: the lenses and thin and flat while providing the highest optical quality and clearest vision from the lens center to the periphery.

"Innovation is at the core of the ZEISS brand, and we are transforming the standard single vision lens market by bringing many aspects of freeform lens design to the single vision lens category in both surfaced and stock,” said Jens Boy, president of ZEISS Vision Care North America, in a press release. "Freeform lens design combined with the ClearForm technology used in ZEISS ClearView Single Vision lenses enables complex lens designs that were previously only possible in surfaced single vision lenses. ZEISS now offers premium quality optics in custom Rx and finished single vision stock lenses, to ensure everyone can experience the benefits of ZEISS optics.”

75% of worldwide spectacle lens wearers—and 83% in Asia—buy single vision lenses.1 Most of these are stock lenses due to low cost and quick delivery, but standard single vision lenses often limit precise vision, which is honed by the freeform-optimized lens. The ClearView lenses are designed to bridge the gap for consumers: Zeiss aims to offer the cost benefit of the standard single vision lens and the visual benefit of the freeform-optimized single vision lens.

Additionally, Zeiss ClearView Single Vision lenses are available with DuraVision lens coatings for consumers who wish for scratch-resistant, anti-reflective, dirt-resistant, blue light-blocking, or antiviral and antibacterial lens coatings.
