Manufactured in Italy by specialist craftsmen, every aspect of a Black Label frame is made to the highest standard, from the perfectly flush finish of the screwless hinge and the rich colours of the titanium, to the delicate branding on the end tips. Laser cut from sheet titanium, there are no joins or solder points which are the usual points at which a frame breaks.

KODAK Drive Lens

Perfect for day and night driving

You don’t have to have a separate pair of spectacles to enjoy the benefit of night driving glasses. Did you know that 48% of us feel impacted by glare when driving?* When you’re behind a steering wheel, your vision needs to be in top condition. That’s why the KODAK Drive Lens was invented. It’s brilliant for all day use, and perfect for wearing at night as it reduces reflectance by up to 90%. This means it’s a great choice for night-time drives, as it significantly reduces distracting glare from vehicles, traffic and street lights.

There’s evidence to suggest that modern headlights are brighter than they have ever been. The use of LED lights in car headlights is very popular with modern car manufacturers due to their energy efficiency compared to traditional halogen bulbs which have a softer more yellow tone to the light.

LED light is more directional. Rather than being a big spread of light which comes from a halogen bulb, LED light is more focused. It is also a traditionally brighter light which appears to be blue-white in colour, hence why it appears brighter in the dark

The rise in drivers feeling dazzled by headlights is probably down to this shift in technology and now it is time for lens technology to try and address this problem with night driving glasses.

KODAK Drive Lenses are twice as effective as standard reflection-free lenses and are also available in Transitions Xtractive.

Zeiss digital lenses

Smart phones, tablets and gps systems have become a massive part of modern day life. These are devices we often use everyday and for long periods of time. In fact in 2013 mobile-connected devices exceeded the world population for the first time.

For people aged between 30 and 49 in the UK

- 75% are smart phone users
- 63% spend 5 hours or more using digital devices everyday
- 29% have a tablet or e-book reader

This use of digital devices creates new challenges for our eyes, looking at digital screens means the number of daily cycles switching from far to near and back has increased. This is very demanding on the ciliary muscle of the eye and coupled with a reduction in accommodation, this can lead to blurred vision, tired or dry eyes and neck strains.

Zeiss are introducing a lens product to meet the need of people mainly between 30-40 years of age (although many others can also benefit) who are experiencing near vision discomfort for the first time. Regardless of whether they are currently wearers of single vision glasses or not yet spectacle wearers. The lens is designed to give the patient a large uninterrupted distance zone and comfortable near zone for relaxed vision on digital devices.

Product features
- optimised lens design to support close up vision for digital devices -large distance zones to match existing visual behaviour with single vision lenses or with out spectacles -allows smoother transition into varifocal lenses later on when these are required.

Benefits to patient
- helps the eye to focus more easily
- stress and strain free viewing throughout the entire day
- easy adaptation
- for universal use throughout the day

Zeiss digital lenses will help to make tired eyes and stiff necks a thing of the past. They help the users of digital devices to maintain focused, fit and fresh vision all day. A recent study has found that 90% of those studied where satisfied as the lenses reduced there symptoms of strained or tired eyes by a factor of 4.
