/PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ZEISS Vision Care US announced today the launch of the ZEISS SmartLife lens portfolio, an entirely new lens design concept that addresses the evolving visual needs and challenges posed by today's digital, busy lifestyle. ZEISS SmartLife is now available to all independent ZEISS eye care professionals nationwide.
Over the past 10 years, the shift towards using technology while on-the-go has profoundly changed the way we use our eyes and resulted in a growing number of eyeglass wearers reporting symptoms such as eyestrain, tired eyes, and head & neck aches. ZEISS researchers explored this trend to determine how eyeglass lenses could evolve in response to the 21st century digital lifestyle.
The new ZEISS SmartLlife lens portfolio is designed around our modern lifestyle with the goal of offering greater all-day comfort. The new portfolio is further fine-tuned by age group and visual requirements, from Gen Z to the Baby Boomer generation.
"We are excited to announce the launch of the ZEISS SmartLife lens portfolio today," said Jens Boy, president of ZEISS Vision Care North America. "The constant use of smart devices on-the-move has dramatically altered the way we use our eyes. Until today, ophthalmic lenses were not designed to address this type of visual behavior. ZEISS SmartLife is a game changer that will support greater visual comfort for patients of all ages, regardless of their prescription needs. We look forward to seeing how patients and our partners in the eye care market will experience the real-world benefits of the new ZEISS SmartLife portfolio."
