digital age_impact on eyes

As you can see from the diagram above, with the increasing use of digital devices in our daily lives, our lifestyle changes , affecting our visual behaviour and how we use our eyes.  Studies by ZEISS vision lab have shown that in todays digital age:

  1. there is significantly downward shifted gaze
  2. central and peripheral vision to navigate, and additional downward eye rotation is necessary while using connected devices on-the-move
  3. constant attention to connected devices leads to new patterns of body posture and eye movements

Smart Dynamic Optics

Smart Dynamic Optics is based on the simulation of binocular vision.

A sophisticated 3D object-space model and a new design takes the dynamic visual behaviour from near to far into account,
 which leads to a

  1. smoother transition into the lens periphery
  2. less perceived blur
  3. comfortable vision and
 ease of viewing in all distances and directions.

 Age Intelligence

We have to deal with the visual strain that has become part of our

 challenges over time.

The ZEISS SmartLife lens portfolio caters for all connected, on-the-move spectacle wearers – independent
 of age – providing clear, comfortable vision to balance your modern lifestyle.

As your reading power increases, ZEISS Digital Lenses are geared towards ZEISS SmartLife Progressive Lenses for easy 
adaptation and transition into progressive lens vision.

Below is an introduction to Zeiss SmartLife Lens portfolio which includes 1) SmartLife Single Vision, 2) SmartLife Digital lens and 3) SmartLife Progressive Lens

 

1) SmartLife Single Vision Lenses

Normal single vision lenses are usually
 optimised for one distance only – mainly 
for far vision. The lower part of the lens 
is not optimised for near distances.

SmartLife single vision lenses achieve clearer vision by reducing oblique astigmatism errors throughout the lens

ZEISS SmartLife Single Vision Lenses are optimised for sharp
 vision at all distances, especially when the gaze is lowered while
 focusing on near objects. This optimisation results in an improved 
optical performance and up to 88% larger clear fields of view.

Benefits

  • The next generation of ZEISS Single Vision Lenses with improved optical performance and
 up to 88% larger clear fields of view
  • 94% perceived wide fields of comfortable vision for intermediate and near tasks

 

2) SmartLife Digital Lenses

ZEISS SmartLife Digital Lenses are designed for more accurate and comfortable vision at near distances for
 your connected and on-the-move lifestyle.

The lens is designed for more natural head and body posture 
while reading, and can help to alleviate tired eyes or near vision discomfort.
 The design is geared towards ZEISS SmartLife Progressive Lenses for a more natural transition into later 
progressive lens vision.

This means you will have an easier time when you start wearing progressive lenses later on when your reading power increases.
