This fashionable accessory is indispensable for ensuring that you enjoy superb, clear vision and 100% protection against UV rays. All of this is available in a single lens. ZEISS sunglass lenses – the best choice for your sunglasses. Whether you have prescription lenses or not, our comprehensive range features individualised sunglass lenses for everyone.
Are all sunglasses the same? Not at all. When do you wear your sunglasses the most? While shopping? While sitting at a café? Or maybe while taking a walk through the park? Or perhaps when you're playing sports? Or driving a car? The better your sunglasses meet your needs, the more comfortable they are to wear. Take our test to find out which outdoor lenses from ZEISS are best for you. There are three categories to choose from: Urban, Drive and Active.
All ZEISS sunglass lens categories – Urban, Drive & Active – feature 100% protection against UVA and UVB radiation, providing optimum protection for your eyes. Enjoy comfortable vision when you're outdoors in the sun. Your eyes will thank you.
Here's a tip: the more sensitive your eyes are to light, the darker the sunglass tint should be. Bright tints and gradient tints are ideal on cloudy days with little sunlight, whereas dark tints protect your eyes in strong sunshine.
Our Urban sunglass lens category is ideal for fashionistas and individualists who want to be stylish. We offer eye-catching colours, attractive designs and aesthetically appealing mirror coatings. And featuring 100% protection against UVA and UVB radiation.

ZEISS single vision lenses help correct short- and long-sightedness. These lenses are fitted to the individual wearer and are optimised for good vision – even in the periphery of the lens. They're also thin, aesthetically appealing and offer great spontaneous wearer tolerance.
Just like a tailor-made suit, ZEISS progressive lenses are adapted to precisely meet the wearer's needs. This ensures greater wearer tolerance, faster adaptation and all-around clear vision.
High-performance lens coatings make your glasses extremely durable against scratches or adhesive dirt. The benefit: your lenses remain dirt-free for longer, making them significantly easier to clean. See better, look better – thanks in part to the latest anti-reflective coating.
1. Sunglasses that are both a fashionable accessory but also offer great vision support? I don't believe it!" – That's not a contradiction. Even for those who have a high prescription or for progressive lens wearers, ZEISS sunglasses are the optimum solution.
2. Thanks to a nearly unlimited selection of tints, you can revel in the different colours available – just like when buying clothes. Lenses with gradient tints or mirror coatings are currently quite popular. Try them out – maybe they're a perfect fit for your favourite outfit!
3. 100% UV protection to prevent harmful UVA and UVB radiation from damaging your eyes – a must-have for every pair of sunglasses. All ZEISS sunglass lenses are available with 100% UV protection. This comes as either a standard feature or as an accessory.
4. Taking good care of your sunglass lenses is important. During purchase, make sure you select the right lens coating (such as ZEISS DuraVision) so that you can enjoy your sunglasses for a long time to come.
