At Sound Beach Optiks in Old Greenwich, CT, we offer innovative ZEISS solutions that can help you with your vision. These top-of-the-line eyeglass lenses employ the best technology available in the market.
Digital devices such as mobile phones and tablets have changed the way we live, work, and play. However, they are also challenging our vision like never before. We hold digital screens at a higher angle and closer to our eyes than books and newspapers. Eye movements are faster and more dynamic, rapidly refocusing between near vision and far.
Today, presbyopes need a progressive lens that gives them outstanding vision in the real and digital world. ZEISS Progressive Precision Pure meets both needs with ZEISS Digital Inside technology and full Rx customization—supported by ZEISS Precision Technology for enhanced clarity, faster refocusing, and optimal lens aesthetics.
Digital Inside ® Technology is a new approach to lens design that accounts for the typical reading position of digital devices. The near zone is extended vertically and horizontally for comfortable reading of all media-printed materials, computers, cellphones, and tablets. Patients can enjoy natural head and body posture without struggling to find a clear focus for reading handheld devices.
The best vision care addresses, not just acuity, but also the patient’s entire visual life. It should consider how you use your vision on the job and throughout the day; how dynamic your visual behavior is; and how regularly you use digital devices such as mobile phones and tablets.
ZEISS Progressive Individual 2 addresses each individual’s unique pattern of vision, encompassing optics, visual habits, and lifestyle to provide the ultimate personalized vision.
ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect strongly filters blue light shorter than 440nm. This range is of particular concern to eye care professionals. Reducing the eye’s exposure to this type of blue light helps prevent retinal cell damage and phototoxicity.
This product reflects parts of the incoming blue-violet light back to their sources, hindering the light from entering the eye. In addition, the ZEISS coating reduces the transmission in the spectrum of 380-455 nm (blue light hazard) while keeping the high transmission level above 460 nm.
Viewing digital devices at night can disrupt the brain’s production of melatonin, causing sleep disturbances and dysfunction of the natural circadian rhythm. The American Macular Degeneration Foundation warns that retinal damage caused by blue light may lead to macular degeneration. Evidence also suggests that long-term exposure to blue light may contribute to photochemical damage to the retina.
