ZEISS AdaptiveSun Solutions

Smart sunglass lenses by ZEISS that adapt to changing light.

New!

ZEISS AdaptiveSun Solutions is our latest innovation in sunglass lenses, expanding the ZEISS outdoor lens portfolio. ZEISS scientists and engineers have applied technology based on photochromic properties, enabling the intelligent adaptation of the lens tone depending on the level of exposure to UV radiation. The versatile photochromic technology builds on the ZEISS PhotoFusion Technology, ensuring that clear and comfortable vision is always delivered during changing light conditions. This means that the sunglass lenses automatically adapt their colour intensity ranging from very dark in bright sunlight to a moderate dark shade in lower levels of sunlight exposure.

On top of that, it also delivers full UV protection and for extreme light and glare protection, ZEISS AdaptiveSun Polarized was added to the portfolio.
