ZEISS PhotoFusion X Lenses
Offer your customers photochromic lenses with unique blue light protection.
PhotoFusion® X is not just a product update. We have re-envisioned photochromics using new lens material, faster dye compounds, and a speed-optimised carrier matrix.
Why did ZEISS develop PhotoFusion® X Lenses? It answers your customers’ daily needs.
Changing environmental light conditions challenge the human eye. When moving from indoors to outdoors, illuminance can be up to 100 times higher outside, which can lead to discomfort glare.
Swopping clear glasses for sunglasses can be a hassle. On top of that, sunglasses are not always at hand – less than 22% of consumers actually wear their sunglasses when they need them.2
Internet searches for “blue block glasses” are soaring and 8 out of 10 lens wearers are saying that it is important to protect their eyes from blue light – especially indoors.3
Lens wearers want an all-in-one solution.
There’s an increasing demand for photochromic lenses due to today’s on-the-go lifestyle, and the rising number of 45+ year old progressive lens as well as young lens wearers. Customers want an all-day, all-light solution for daily wear.
ZEISS PhotoFusion has been the preferred choice of many eye care professionals for their reaction speed. Now, in light of the growing demand, ZEISS set out to take light-reactive lenses to a whole new level with ZEISS PhotoFusion X.
Speed X Darkness X Clarity X Protection.
ZEISS PhotoFusion X is not merely a product update. It is photochromics re-envisioned, a product reinvented. It is performance perfected – designed to accelerate your business.
Your customers’ satisfaction with ZEISS PhotoFusion X Lenses is proven.
