and online all at the same time?

Let your eyes keep up.

ZEISS Single Vision SmartLife lenses with Smart Dynamic Optics make it easy for your eyes to switch between the screen and real life, from near to far. Enjoy crisp vision at all distances – even when you’re on the go.

Broaden your perspective.

Standard single vision lenses help people see clearly – but mostly through the centre of the lens. This isn't ideal for how we use our eyes in today's connected, on-the-move world. We need good peripheral vision.1 ZEISS SmartView technology calculates your lens design for sharp vision in any direction – all the way to the edges.

Heavy on tech. Light as a feather.

Thankfully, technology doesn’t weigh a thing. In fact, ours makes your lenses even thinner and lighter. Thanks to Clear Optics and Thin Optics, we’re sure you'll feel good and look great in your SmartLife lenses – whatever your prescription.

Let’s recap.

Make them even smarter.

Lens ingredients to complete your SmartLife lenses.

You’ve chosen a great lens design, but you need to make a few more choices. These factors are worth considering before you buy your next pair.

Your eyes

ZEISS Single Vision SmartLife has one optical prescription to correct either near or distance vision. Your optician should confirm if this is the right lens type for you.

Your lifestyle

Beyond your prescription, SmartLife® is designed for HOW you use your eyes while you’re connected and on the move. With intelligence augmentation (IA) we can personalise it even more – just ask your optician for ZEISS Single Vision SmartLife Individual.

Your face & frame

Your lenses can be fine-tuned to fit the anatomy of your face. This is made possible with ZEISS FaceFit technology and some measurements taken by your eye care professional.

Eye protection

Full UV protection is a given in all SmartLife lenses. You can also add ZEISS BlueGuard for blue light protection or PhotoFusion X – for sunnies and eyeglasses all-in-one. Both are great options for a busy, screen-filled life.

Thickness & weight

All ZEISS SmartLife lenses are designed to be thin and flat. You also have a choice of lens material and index – it can influence how you look and feel with your new pair of glasses.

Durability & care

A ZEISS DuraVision lens coating of your choice will reinforce your glasses, make them easy to clean and more. Add the features that are important to you.

Any questions?

  • This lens is usually ideal for people in their 20s but will benefit anyone who has issues seeing either near (hyperopic) OR far (myopic). Our ZEISS SmartLife portfolio has great options for children and older lens wearers as well.

  • The magic of a lens lies in its design. Unlike most single vision lenses sold worldwide, ZEISS SmartLife lenses have a freeform design. It means that many aspects of the lens optics can be customised to the individual wearer, which can result in better vision through a larger area of the lens. Based on scientific research on people’s visual behaviour, these lenses are also optimised to perfectly suit our connected, on-the-move lifestyle, and support busy eyes that need to constantly switch their focus.

  • We definitely think so. While ready-made readers are an affordable and convenient choice, they are not made specifically for you. ZEISS SmartLife reading glasses can be customised for your preferred reading distances – for natural, comfortable vision close up.
