And now, the innovators at ZEISS Vision Care have raised the standard in the category with the introduction of ZEISS ClearView lenses. Offering many of the advantages of freeform-optimized lenses with the cost benefit of a standard single vision lens, ZEISS ClearView’s advanced freeform lens design uses point-by-point optimization of the lens surface to deliver on average a three times larger zone of excellent clear vision.
