The uniqueness of the human body is one of the many factors influencing product development today, with an increasing demand for products that can adapt to our anatomy.


An overall approach to the eyes and facial anatomy
The anatomy of individuals differs – and no two faces are the same.

If a spectacle lens is not fitted to the wearer’s physiological facial parameters, they may not be able to experience the full potential of their 3D vision, which is essential for good distance perception. Research shows that 50% of progressive lens wearers experience problems with either clear distance vision, peripheral distortions or limited 3D vision, while they may also have difficulty judging distances.*

ZEISS Progressive Lens Precision Superb responds to this challenge with a solution that provides an optimum match of the eye-lens-frame system.

    Optimised for the eyes + frame + face

    Loading the player...

    The unique anatomy of every individual’s face is important.

    Taking into account the physiological position of wearer parameters allows an optimal match of the eye-lens-frame system and therefore full use of 3D vision. FaceFit Technology optimises the visual zones based on the knowledge of the exact position of the eyes and the facial fit of the frame on the nose and ears.

    FaceFit Technology unlocks the full potential of 3D vision

    FaceFit Technology optimises the vision zones based on the frame data, the position of the eyes and the fit of the frame on the nose and ears. With this precise information, lens zone sizes can be improved and the 3D vision potential fully utilised.

    Standard lens design optimised for a face with standard position of wear parameters:

    • Full vision experience when looking through the progressive lens without compromise

    Standard lens design on a face with non-standard position of wear parameters:

    • Compromised visual experience when looking through the progressive lens
    • Three-dimensional vision potential cannot be utilised

    Lens design with FaceFit™ Technology on a face with non-standard position of wear parameters:

    • Full vision experience without visual compromises when looking through the progressive lens, as the lens is optimised for the face
    • Full use of 3D vision and enhanced distance perception for the wearer

    Optimised vision zones through physiological wearer parameters

    No two faces are alike. Every nose, every ear is different. There is even a difference between the left and right eye. ZEISS Progressive Lens Precision Superb is precisely fitted to the following physiological parameters of the face:

    Position of the pupil behind the lens

    Frame data
    In addition to the size and shape of the chosen frame, frame data delivers the final details for a customised optimum zone size balance and the resulting optical and aesthetic performance.

    Fitting height and pupil distance
    The correct fitting height allows any frame size and enables the lens to be designed accordingly. A precise measurement of the pupil distance ensures the perfect location of the near zone.

    Fit of the frame on the nose and ears

    Pantoscopic tilt
    The pantoscopic tilt (the angle of the tilted lens vs the vertical axis in the final position of wear) must be considered in the lens calculation in order to minimise optical errors and blurred vision.

    Back vertex distance
    Measuring the back vertex distance (distance between the cornea and the back lens surface) is the basis for simulating eye movement behind the lens and optimising and sharpening the horizontal fields of vision.

    h = Frame height
    l = Frame length
    DbL = Distance between lenses

    YR/L = Fitting height right/left eye
    z/PDR/L = Pupil distance right/left eye

    PA = Pantoscopic tilt
    BVD = Back vertex distance

    By using i.Terminal® 2, the ZEISS centration system, all fitting measurements can be taken in a fast, simple and precise manner.
