„Zeiss” Optics Center - Glasses - guide


When should I use glasses?

If you notice that someone can better see up close or from a distance than you, or see differently than usual this signal says to examine your eyes. The specialist will determine the cause of your troubles. This may be easy to correct myopia or hyperopia defect. More complex defects such as astigmatism, ataxia complex also manages to adjust the glasses.
At the age of 40 accommodative eye loses efficiency (ability to sharp vision from near and far), then you need glasses to read.
If you feel uncomfortable when looki caused by excess sunlight or artificial, perhaps your eyes are hypersensitive. Then you can use the glasses with protective filters. When your eyes are exposed to sunlight you should use glasses with lenses tinted good and UV filters. Long-term work in front of a computer monitor or working in artificial light should force us to use protective eyewear (glasses with anti-reflective coating). We also offer eye protection for people working in special conditions, eg .: dentist, welder, locksmith, where the eyes are exposed to mechanical damage.
Glasses can be a great addition to your wardrobe, jewelery and emphasize the beauty and style, add elegance.

Interesting information about the development of vision and presbyopia.


Carl Zeiss offers you many types (structure) of progressive lenses with varying degrees of technological advancement and therefore, different price level.

Economic line progressive lenses allows you to enjoy the comfort of view, the basic defects of vision.
Prestige Line enses of the latest designs of optics, whose individual customer specific design enables accurate matching glasses to user preferences and lifestyle of the owner. All types of progressive lenses can be executed in a colorless, tinted or photochromic. They may also have reduced thickness by up to 70%. The use of the right type of anti-reflection filter makes it easy to operate in difficult lighting conditions.

Because the design of progressive lenses is significantly different from ordinary bifocals to correct the distant or near vision need to be aware of the need to get used to the new progressive glasses. The adjustment period can be up to several weeks.

The length of adaptation and usability of progressive glasses depends on several elements:

* Quality lenses (newer and more individual design increases the functionality)

* Well-chosen frame (shape and arrangement of frames to optimize the choice of lenses)

* Accuracy (determining the functions is correct and mounting lenses in the frame)

* Precision of execution (a precise combination of all the elements in the new comfortable glasses)

We must also remember that the individual predisposition of a person having to wear glasses progressive influence the selection of the appropriate lens design and the length of the adaptation period.

Satisfaction Guarantee with new glasses progressive:

It happens that in spite of all these factors taken into account when ordering glasses the user does not have the full comfort of use even after a period of adaptation. After analyzing all the factors mogocych be affected, we propose a new version of progressive lenses or free replacement of two pairs of monofocal lenses. The decision always belongs to the customer.

Glasses or contact lenses?
The decision about how to correct vision defects depends on the needs of the patient. Wearing contact lenses need not and should not preclude the use of glasses. Someone who every day comes with glasses can wear contact lenses, eg. For sport or during the holidays. We must remember that the possibility of an alternative use of contact lenses or glasses should decide specialist who determines if and how we should do (sometimes you may find that the defect of vision or condition of the patient's eyes will not allow the use of contact lenses) To sum up: the use of glasses is not preclude the use of contact lenses and vice versa - it requires but always in consultation with a specialist and judicious use of contact lenses.

Types of spectacle lenses.
Spectacle lenses generally can be divided into the following categories:

  • By of the material from which they are made
    • Mineral Lenses (traditional with the mineral quartz)
    • Lenses organic-plastic (polymethyl, polycarbonate or other
    • plastic)
  • by construction - way of correcting different vision: myopia (myopii), hyperopia (hyperopii), astigmatism, astigmatism and presbyopia.
    • Monofocal lenses (single power to distant or near vision)
    • Bifocal lenses (double power to distant and near vision)
    • Progressive lenses (smooth change of power to distant and near vision)

All types of lenses are offered in versions:

Types of eyeglass frames.
Eyewear can be divided into the following categories:

  • according to the material they are made

    • Frames of plastic (eg. Nylon celidor methacrylate)
    • Frames of metals and metal alloys (eg. Stainless steel, titanium, cobalt)
    • Frames of unusual materials (eg. Wood, buffalo horn, tortoiseshell)

    When choosing a new spectacle frame advise you to pay special attention to the facial skin sensitivity to the material they are made of glasses. Some metals (especially nickel and chromium) as a component of metal alloys, and certain plastics (containing PVC) may cause allergies. Titan is the only material 100% antiallergic used for the production of eyeglass frames. Extremely rare allergic reaction to stainless steel and nylon, and seldom on the cobalt, celidor methacrylate and nickel-free alloys.

  • by design - a method of assembling corrective lenses:

    • Frames closed (fully covering the spectacle glasses)
    • Frames open (in whole or in part exposing the spectacle glasses)

    It is worth noting that both of these types of fixtures can be made of metal as well as plastic and other materials. You have to remember that the glass of considerable thickness to choose a holder of stronger construction. In our showrooms OPTYK-ZEISS we have a computer system, the selection of glasses "winfral". On the screen, you can watch your face in several different glasses, taking into account the type of glass, its color, thickness, weight and other parameters. This is particularly useful for people with large visual impairment who can not estimate their appearance in the new frames. Our experienced professional employees are at your disposal. Many years of experience and training allow them to effectively assist our clients in choosing the best models of glasses to emphasize a positive image.

Other optical aids.
Optical aids are instruments to help, and in some cases allowing vision to people with special visual impairments. There are also specialized devices for performing specific professional activities requiring high precision (eg. Mikrochirurg, a jeweler, a dentist, lab). We realize individual orders for various types of sunglasses, protective and binocular, magnifying glass, binoculars, spotting scopes, microscopes, laboratory and operational, night vision and other optical instruments.

How often should I examine eyes?
The patient uses glasses should examine the eyes as recommended by your ophthalmologist, but not less frequently than once every two years. In a situation where for some reason wants to make a new pair of glasses should (even before the expiry of two years) eyes tested by a specialist. The situation is different when the patient is a child or a person suffering from diseases affecting visual acuity (ie. Diabetes). It must be remembered, however, that a visit to the ophthalmologist is essential in the case of visual impairment.
