PhotoFusion by ZEISS is Here

TODAY Carl Zeiss Vision launches their very own proprietary self-tinting (photochromic) lens in Australia and New Zealand… an innovation which is guaranteed to demonstrate genuine improvements in comfort and performance: PhotoFusion®, the new self-tinting lenses by ZEISS.

PhotoFusion Delivers Faster Tinting Times

Carl Zeiss’s has just released a new self-tinting lens that they say darkens in 15 – 30 seconds and is clear again in five to 10 minutes, eliminating the need for people to swap between sunglasses and eyeglasses when moving between outdoor and indoor environments.

According to Carl Zeiss, PhotoFusion® lenses, which are produced in-house, react up to two times faster from dark to clear than previous photochromic lenses by Carl Zeiss Vision.

Carl Zeiss has just released a new self-tinting lens that they say darkens in 15 – 30 seconds…

Steve Daly, the Director of Research and Development for Carl Zeiss Vision Australia & New Zealand said this reaction speed is high enough to allow comfortable vision in all light conditions. In doing so, he said, they live up to a key expectation reported by more than 5,800 glasses users from around the world, surveyed in research commissioned by Carl Zeiss, who overwhelmingly said “yes to self-tinting lenses, but only if they’re faster.”

PhotoFusion® technology is based on patented photoactive molecules that unfold when exposed to UV light, thus darkening the lens and providing protection. According Carl Zeiss, these new lenses are very clear indoors (92 per cent transparency with antireflective coating) and very dark outdoors (9 per cent transparency in sunlight with antireflective coating).

The lenses also provide 100 per cent protection against UV rays up to 400 nm and excellent colour consistency for natural vision. Importantly, the company claims, they retain their self-tinting ability for a long time.

Carl Zeiss Vision Business Development Managers in Australia and New Zealand are visiting their key accounts to introduce this exciting new product. For more information, or to see a Business Development Manager, contact 1800 882 041(AU) or 0508 765 271(NZ).
