Modern technology governs our life and makes it easier, both at home and at work. We spend a good portion of our time working with high-tech devices and displays. They help make us faster and more productive. If we want to stay focused for extended periods while using computers, smartphones, tablet PCs or other devices at work, we need good vision at near to intermediate distances. This field of vision, between a half meter and four metres, is the one we use most often in our daily routine. Reading glasses and even sophisticated progressive lenses are not ideal for this field of vision. Have you ever considered wearing spectacles that are specially tailored to the work you do?
For many people, the world of work is getting faster and faster and increasingly varied. Computers and other devices play a major role in the modern workplace. As a result, staying productive for long periods is essential. Our vision plays a key role here, especially when we're working in front of screens and displays. Our eyes have to endure strain in the near to intermediate fields of vision for many hours each day.
You might already wear reading glasses or progressive lenses at work. However, our example shows that you can assume a very unnatural posture when wearing these types of spectacles.
Reading glasses are ideal for very short distances. To see text and images well, you will automatically move closer to the screen. By doing this, you assume a poor posture. This can result in tension in your neck and back.
Progressive lenses allow you to see at all distances. The lower section of the progressive prescription spectacle lens helps you see objects close to you. When working in front of a screen, you look through the bottom section of the spectacle lens. To do this, you have to lift your head to see clearly through this part of lens. This posture puts excessive strain on your neck and shoulders over long periods of time.
The new ZEISS office spectacle lenses are tailored to your specific needs and allow for a relaxed posture. These lenses offer very large fields of vision from near to intermediate distances (between half a metre and four metres). This lets you see and work at your best in precisely the range of vision your job requires. Your head and neck will be in a natural, relaxed position the whole day through.
Better vision with ZEISS office lenses in three customised versions:
Thanks to technology developed by Carl Zeiss Vision for determining the maximum intermediate distance (Maximum Intermediate Distance = M.I.D.), ZEISS office lenses can be adjusted to meet the viewing distance needs of the individual spectacle wearer. We offer everything from attractively priced lenses, to custom solutions tailored to extremely precise requirements. The spectacle lenses are manufactured using the maximum distance the individual spectacle wearer needs to see on a day-to-day basis in the workplace. Called the M.I.D. value, this is the distance in the room that the wearer needs to see clearly and sharply.
ZEISS office lenses, like progressive and single vision lenses, are available from your ZEISS optician in different designs (officelens Plus, officelens Superb and officelens Individual) and with a variety of materials.
ZEISS office lenses also help you see better in your free time, whether you're reading, watching TV, cooking, surfing the Web, chatting online, or playing a musical instrument. Your optician will be happy to advise you and select the best solution from the range of ZEISS office lenses.
