Professionals or amateurs, cyclists or golfers, swimmers or tennis players: good vision is vital in all sports and no two athletes are exactly alike. Athletes need lenses that satisfy the vision requirements necessary for the sport. The right tint, the optimum lens design along with the lenses' protective function are crucial. Wrap lenses that protect the eye from dust, dirt, the sun and small pebbles in the air are an optical challenge, especially in the peripheral zones. Yet this is exactly what counts if you want to ensure that you can also see optimally when looking sideways through the lens. ZEISS technologies make this possible.
These wrap stars have always been the be-all-and-end-all for sports enthusiasts. They offer protection against small pebbles in the air and a UV protective function in one pair of glasses. But wrap sports glasses with ZEISS spectacle lenses can do even more. They may enhance contrast and therefore offer optimum vision in either their single vision or progressive lens versions.
A wrap lens presents special challenges for optical optimisation and lens production. To perfectly incorporate each wearer's personal prescription, special optical know-how and leading-edge technology are required to prevent the inevitable aberrations resulting from the laws of physics – particularly in the peripheral areas of the lens. With ZEISS SPORT lenses for strongly wrapped frames, this is no longer an issue.
This is not only good news for sports glasses, but also for fashionable sunglasses and prescription eye wear with the wrap around look!
