Originally founded in Jena Germany in 1846, Carl Zeiss Vision is one of the oldest existing optics manufacturers in the world. In 2005 Carl Zeiss Opthalmic merged with Sola International to become Carl Zeiss Vision. SOLA, short for Scientific Ophthalmic Laboratories Australia, is credited for the creation of the first CR-39 lenses back in 1956. At the time, only glass lenses were available and the creation of the CR-39 alternative was groundbreaking and innovative. Now having merged with Carl Zeiss, two of the most important companies in the ophthalmic industry are working together to produce extraordinary results in the field of research, development and production.
Carl Zeiss Vision is a worldwide leader in developing and manufacturing ophthalmic lenses, lens coatings and dispensary technologies. Premium eyeglass lenses from Carl Zeiss are the result of more than 150 years of advanced research, innovation and German technology. ZEISS know-how and technical resources are sophisticated enough to design everything from surgical microscopes and lasers to telescopes and lenses used in space exploration. These same technologies are used to compute and produce the world's most advanced precision spectacle lenses and coatings.
Lenses from Carl Zeiss are elegant and well-constructed, ultimately yielding high-quality images. From the best in semi-finished lenses to the most advanced applications of free-form technology, Carl Zeiss Vision has the progressive lenses that meet your exacting standards.
