ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses.

The everyday pair of glasses for driving

Being able to see well is a prerequisite for safe driving because on the road our eyes are working overtime: constantly shifting focus between the street, the GPS and the rearview and wing mirrors. Inclement weather or adverse light conditions often make it difficult to see. ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses – available as single-vision and progressive lenses – minimise this visual stress when driving and make it easier for drivers to see, enabling you to arrive at your destination safely and stress-free.

Reduced reflections. Helping you better estimate distances.

Unfavourable weather, poor light conditions, irritating glare (e.g. from the headlights of oncoming cars, street lamps or reflections off the wet street) and shifting your viewing focus quickly and often are potential visual challenges for many drivers. The design of ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses accommodates drivers' special visual needs.

These lenses help you: 

  • judge distances and driving situations more quickly,
  • improve your vision at night,
  • reduce irritations caused by reflected lights and
  • ensure you can quickly and easily adjust your viewing focus to your driving surroundings.

See better during the day, in twilight conditions and at night.

Our pupil size changes over the course of the day: the more surrounding light there is, the smaller the pupil – and vice-versa. Traditional spectacle lenses don't accommodate this change within their designs. DriveSafe Lenses from ZEISS stand out from the crowd because their optimised lens design accommodates the wearer's enlarged pupil diameter when driving in poor light. This lens design also increases contrast, improves vision in inclement weather and reduces possible distortions within the lens periphery – particularly with progressive lenses.

The end result: you have better vision and can more precisely judge viewing distances in stressful driving situations e.g. at night or in rain, fog or snow.

Enjoy integrated professional protection. Prevent unpleasant glare or scratches.

ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses are equipped with a special premium anti-reflective coating. This reduces the subjective sensation of glare* – e.g. from oncoming vehicles with LED or Xenon headlights – and effectively protects your lenses from scratches and the adhesion of dirt particles.

A more comfortable driving experience with progressive lenses.

ZEISS DriveSafe for extra convenience.

ZEISS DriveSafe is also available in a progressive lens design. The specially optimised near, mid-distance and transition zones ensure comfortable shift of viewing focus, reducing horizontal head movements and enabling significantly more dynamic vision for the wearer.

4. Lenses – in particular lens coatings – don't tolerate extremely high or low temperatures. So don't leave them in the car. Your glasses will thank you.

Glasses sit just as they were fitted by your optician.

5. The lenses shouldn't be too narrow. This way the eye can look through a larger viewing range. Wide frames and very narrow temples ensure that the driver's field of vision is limited as little as possible. When driving in a convertible with the top down, don't forget your wrapped lenses, especially as sunglasses: these offer ideal wind protection.

For professional cleaning and gentle lens care. Useful extras.

Protective and effective: gentle care for the lens and coating. As a cleaning spray or cloth, these solutions are also ideal for a computer monitor, smartphone or tablet.
