ZEISS DriveSafe Lens

OCULA is proud to work with ZEISS to provide customers with the perfect lens to ensure their vision is 20/20. Our most popular ZEISS lenses are the DriveSafe lens and the Individual2 Lens. 

When we rely on glasses and contact lenses to correct and provide us with the most accurate of visions, it is important that we can rely on them in all types of conditions. For instance, when driving at night time many people find that the various bright and flashing lights  from oncoming and traffic ahead can have a significant effect on their driving.

With road safety being very important, it is clear that there is a need for Leading in lens technology, Zeiss has combined optimised lens design with coatings to create a lens that provides the most precise vision when driving at day and night.

What’s even better about the Zeiss DriveSafe lenses are that they are able to be put in your everyday lens so that you don’t have to swap glasses from day to night! The lenses are also suited for progressive lens wearers as well, making sure that everybody is entitled to clear vision when driving.

ZEISS Office Lens

For many of us, using computer devices regularly throughout the day is both the norm at both the office and in our homes.ZEISS Office lens is designed specifically to cater for the  needs of those who are constantly using screens or other technological devices.

With the intent of improving both posture and productivity, the Office Lens ensures that your near and intermediate vision is maximised so that you have both clear vision and comfort in the office. 

Pair your office lens with Zeiss’s blue duravision UV protect coating. Zeiss Blue Duravision coating creates a barrier between your eyes and the blue light that is emitted from screens to avoid symptoms such as eye strain and headaches, which are common symptoms of prolonged screen time.
