The ZEISS office lens portfolio with Maximum Intermediate Distance (M.I.D.) technology. People spend a lot of their time indoors, e.g. when they work in an office or are doing things at home. For these everyday situations requiring near to intermediate vision, not every lens allows relaxed and clear vision. Unsuitable lenses can limit our vision and cause symptoms such as eye fatigue, eyestrain, headaches, neck and back pain.

The office lens portfolio by ZEISS. The solution for relaxed and clear vision from near to intermediate distance is available in three different price* and design levels.

From reading lenses to progressive lenses ...

Reading lenses:
The lens provides a clear field of vision for close-up objects.

Effects on posture:

  • Wearers move c loser to objects to bring them into focus
  • Results in unnecessary neck and back strain

Progressive lenses:

The mid-distance viewing zone provides a limited field of clear vision.

Effects on posture

  • Wearers lift their head to use the intermediate lens zones
  • Results in strained neck and shoulder muscles

Three working areas in clear view

The office lenses by ZEISS
The custom-made solution gives wearers crisp, clear vision of the three main working distances, in line with the needs of each individual wearer:
1. reading
2. workplace
3. room distance

Effects on posture

  • Wearers adopt a natural head and neck posture
  • Complete comfort all day long


The benefits for the wearer

  • Clear visual acuity for near to intermediate distance vision with wide vision zones
  • Relaxed and natural vision in the office and for any activities performed in the near and intermediate ranges
  • Comfortable head and body posture
  • Adapted to personal visual distance from the near to intermediate ranges

Maximum Intermediate Distance (M.I.D.) technology

In order to provide a tailored solution for every wearer, we have opted for an individual approach: we determine the wearer’s "Maximum Intermediate Distance" according to his or her personal near to intermediate distance requirements. The new M.I.D. technology offers variability for clear and relaxed vision from an "enhanced reading lens" up to an "indoor progressive lens."

ZEISS officelens Plus and ZEISS officelens Superb designs are available with three maximum intermediate distances (M.I.D.):

  • Lens type Book: This "enhanced reader" officelens type provides clear vision from reading distance to a fixed M.I.D. of 100 cm.
  • Lens type Near: This officelens type provides clear vision from reading distance to a fixed M.I.D. of 200 cm.
  • Lens type Room: This "indoor progressive" officelens provides clear vision from reading distance up to a fixed M.I.D. of 400 cm.

ZEISS officelens Individual design has an individual M.I.D. which can be customised to the wearer's needs in a range from 100 cm to 400 cm.
The range of vision can be customised from the wearer’s personal reading distance up to the individual M.I.D. of the wearer. This guarantees even more visual comfort from near to intermediate distance.

To shape the optimal visual field for near to intermediate distance vision, select an M.I.D. that is as far as necessary, but as close as possible.
