ZEISS PROGRESSIVE LENSES
The Zeiss story began in 1846, when they became a leading name in many different areas of precision optics and in 1912 Zeiss bought their vast optical experience to the ophthalmic lens market.
Zeiss are the main innovators in the world of ophthalmic lenses, as early as 1935 they were adding anti-reflective coatings to lenses and using freeform production in varifocal manufacture in 1983. Freeform is now the industry standard for varifocal lens manufacture, with many other companies not introducing this technology until the 2000's.
Zeiss are undoubtedly the world leaders in light refraction, which is bourne out by their use in operating microscopes and the Hubble telescope. Zeiss lenses have also been used in Hollywood film production, winning Oscars for Lord of the Rings, Avatar, Gravity and The Revenant. We've all seen the pictures of the first moon landing in 1969, again captured using Zeiss lenses.
Zeiss has helped to shape our history and is now shaping our future with ground breaking innovation. If you want the very best, then Zeiss is the only choice of lens for your new eyewear and Dray's Eyecare are proud to have been chosen as North Oxfordshire's Zeiss Lens Partner.
