Fast dark. Fast clear. Self-tinting lenses by ZEISS

Whether in the sun or indoors: 24 hours of excellent vision with PhotoFusion self-tinting lenses offered by ZEISS.

Zeiss PhotoFusion

The eye care innovation 2011 – PhotoFusion, the ZEISS high- and mid-index self-tinting lenses, react up to 20 % faster than previous photochromic lenses by ZEISS.

Zeiss PhotoFusionPhotoFusion by ZEISS is ideal for everyone who wears glasses and especially for eyes which are sensitive to changing light. On the following pages you can learn all about the many benefits of ZEISS self-tinting lenses. PhotoFusion represents a further milestone in the history of the visionary firm of ZEISS, a history going all the way back to 1846.

 

Zeiss PhotoFusionAre you looking for a new, favourite pair of glasses? Ones that will give you excellent vision in any light day or night? With self-tinting lenses that will give you 100% protection from the sun and harmful solar UV rays and will do away with having to change back to your conventional glasses?

Zeiss PhotoFusionAs of now, ZEISS is also offering the latest generation of self-tinting lenses in the well-known ZEISS quality. And the best thing is that PhotoFusion high- and mid-index self-tinting lenses turn up to 2 times faster  from dark to clear than previous photochromic lenses offered by ZEISS.

 

Zeiss PhotoFusionEven if the sun is shining outside, PhotoFusion is very clear in closed rooms and offers best vision.

Zeiss PhotoFusionA cloudy day with no obvious sunshine: PhotoFusion still protects the eyes against harmful solar UV rays.

zeiss-photofusion4cWhen outside, PhotoFusion lenses darken according to the sunlight giving 100% solar UV protection.

 

Also known as photochromic lenses, self-tinting lenses have been around since the 1960's. The small, yet significant discovery made by chemist Stanley Donald Stookey and his colleague, William Armistead, made it possible to have spectacle lenses that react to UV rays remarkably well. Ever since then, a lot has happened in view of the quality and performance of self-tinting lenses and they are extremely popular amongst many people who are dependent on their glasses and constantly going indoors and outdoors.


What are the differences in quality amongst self-tinting lenses?

With self-tinting lenses, the annoying need to change glasses is a thing of the past. Latest market research by ZEISS show that spectacle wearers however have very clear criteria regarding the quality and performance of self-tinting lenses:

  • To be comfortable to use, self-tinting lenses must adjust very quickly to the changing light conditions.
  • To attain optimal vision, self-tinting lenses must become really dark in sunlight and completely clear indoors.
  • Self-tinting lenses must be effective and also offer 100% UV protection.
  • To look good, self-tinting lenses should be available in attractive, harmonious tints.
  • Self-tinting lenses should have a long life performance and high performance.

 

Opticians say:

  • 95 % evaluate the performance of PhotoFusion as equal or better than other self-tinting lenses.
  • 88 % are very satisfied / satisfied with PhotoFusion lenses.
  • 79 % top sellers say that they experience greater patient satisfaction with PhotoFusion lenses.

A constant search for improvement

The first Essilor treatments appeared in 1967 on mineral lenses.

In 1992, the launch of Crizal revolutionized the universe of treatments on organic lenses, providing a genuine efficiency against scratches and smudges.

Since then, the Crizal range is constantly evolving thanks to the most recent advanced technologies. Our aim is to satisfy the first need of wearers: clarity of vision.

Innovation

Crizal coatings are based on advanced technologies developed to counter the enemies of clear vision. These technologies are perfectly integrated and specifically optimized for ophthalmic applications. Even when combined, they ensure a compact, uniform and durable coating, hairline thin.

The following technologies have revolutionized Crizal lenses:

  • the Scratch Resistance Booster reinforces resistance to scratches
  • the HSD Process (High Surface Density) improves smudge resistance
  • i-Technology enables dust repellence
  • Slide-Fx ensures that water droplets slide off the lens.

1.Glare Reduction Efficiency

Crizal lenses are made up of a series of thin mineral layers that prevent light interference on the surface of the lens, thus eliminating glare..

2.Smudge Resistance Efficiency

The HSD Process optimizes the density of hydrophobic and oleophobic molecules on the surface of the lens. Water and smudges are better repelled and the lens is easier to clean, when required.*High Surface Density Process.

3. Scratch Resistance Efficiency

The introduction of an extra thin layer called the SR Booster (Scratch Resistance) optimizes interaction among the different treatment layers, and boosts, or strengthens, the whole stack. It considerably increases scratch resistance.

4. Dust Repellence Efficiency

The introduction of an extra thin layer called the SR Booster (Scratch Resistance) optimizes interaction among the different treatment layers, and boosts, or strengthens, the whole stack. It considerably increases scratch resistance.

5. Water Repellence Efficiency

The introduction of an extra thin layer called the SR Booster (Scratch Resistance) optimizes interaction among the different treatment layers, and boosts, or strengthens, the whole stack. It considerably increases scratch resistance.

UV protection

UV rays damage your skin but also your eyes...

...Protect them - all year long.

  • UV rays are invisible and painless, but harmful all year long.
  • Everyone is exposed to UV light
  • No amount of Ultraviolet is good for eye health.
  • 40% of UV light reaches us when we are not in full sunlight!

Day after day UV rays damage your skin…

  • Ultraviolet rays accelerate skin aging and appearance of wrinkles.
  • A recognized cause of skin cancers, particularly damaging the eye periphery.
  • 90% of skin cancers occur on the face and neck, with 5 to 10% on the eyelids!

...but also your Eyes!

  • Ultraviolet rays have a direct and cumulative impact on your eyes.
  • Accelerate eye aging, and appearance of cataracts cause long-term reversible and irreversible damages to your vision.

In terms of UV protection, all clear lenses are not equal. Essilor created the Eye-Sun Protection Factor, to help you choose the right protection for your eyes.

Proven Benefits

Clear and Comfortable Vision

Scratches and smudges reduce visual acuity

Scratches and smudges are more than a cosmetic distraction; they actually decrease the visual acuity of the eyeglass wearer. Premium anti-reflective lenses with better scratch protection help ensure maximum visual acuity.

Crizal Forte lenses and leading competitor anti-reflective lenses were subjected to the same abrasion test. In a standard eye test, the superior scratch resistance of Crizal Forte lenses improved visual acuity up to one line, versus the competitor no-glare lens used for comparison.

Crizal lenses improve contrast sensitivity

A clinical study shows that a Crizal lens improves contrast perception by 20%(1), versus an ordinary lens with no anti-reflective coating. This translates to greater visual comfort, especially for the wearer who works on a computer, or under fluorescent lighting.

Crizal is shown to improve eyeglass wearers’ perceived contrast threshold up to five times(1) in a simulated night driving situation combining dim light and bright glare from oncoming headlights.

(1) Clinical study published by a Canadian University in 2001.

Night Driving

Crizal makes night driving safer

Compared to ordinary non-antireflective lenses, Crizal lenses provide up to 5 seconds faster(2) recovery to full vision capacity, after experiencing glare from oncoming headlights while driving at night.

5 seconds = 70 meters at a speed of 50 km per hour!

Crizal makes night driving more comfortable

In real-life testing organized by an independent third party organization(3), 91% of all participants positively evaluated the benefits of Crizal anti-reflective coatings for night driving, and 70 % stated that they felt safer driving at night with anti-reflective coated lenses. Their most common remarks were that they were “more comfortable” on the road at night, and “less disturbed by headlights”, thanks to the Crizal treated lenses used in the test.

Try Crizal coatings, you’ll see the difference, even after sundown!

(3) Study conducted in a College of Optometry in USA - 2005

Computer Eyestrain

Crizal lenses reduce Computer eyestrain

The computer is now a constant of everyday life. You may be one of the millions of people who work, play, and surf the Net, spending long hours in front of a computer screen. And you may also suffer from eyestrain and headaches, like 60% of intensive computer users.

By eliminating glare and heightening contrast, Crizal lenses make all those hours much less of a strain on your eyes. In an independent clinical study(4) conducted among wearers who expressed a preference, up to 90% chose a Crizal lens for greater screen comfort.

That’s great news for you, but also for also for children who spend hours in front of the screen or who have sensitive eyes.

(4) Study conducted in a College of Optometry in USA - 2005

Perception Tests

According to wearers...

Essilor is the first optical lens company to use perception tests. Also called sensory tests, they are part of a scientific discipline that calls upon the five senses to assess the product quality. These tests make it possible to validate the correlation of scientific data from Essilor R&D and the perception of eyeglass wearers.

The tests are also used to compare the performances of Crizal products and those of its competitors. Here are a few results:

  •     Wearers voted Crizal Forte as the cleanest, easiest to clean, most transparent, and least dust-attracting lens on the market(1)
  •     Wearers also declare Crizal Forte provides the best resistance to scratches vs the market’s top competitors(2).

(1) Sensory tests among 160 eyeglass wearers. Impressions drawn after cleaning lenses (soiled with artificial sebum) with a tissue.

(2) Sensory test conducted among 100 eyeglass wearers in May 2008: Letter sharpness evaluated through a scratched lens, using the Bayer ISTM method.
