Ski slopes here we come! It’s many people's favourite time of year. However, skiing and snowboarding can be extremely stressful for your eyes: stormy winds, cold temperatures, higher UV factors and up to 90 percent more reflection of the sun's rays in snowy terrain. This can have a decisive effect on your vision, and even experienced skiers have difficulty maintaining optimum vision when moving from the sun to the shade. ZEISS snow goggles allow you to chill out at an après-ski party without red, watery and stressed eyes. You can choose from a wide range of special technologies, tints and features.
ZEISS SONAR* is an innovative tint from ZEISS Sunlens in Italy. It improves vision in all light conditions in the snow and enhances colours, brightness and contrast, even at high speed on the slopes. In other words, it makes skiing safer.
Unlike standard blue filters, the special spectral curve of ZEISS Sonar suppresses blue light but allows some to reach the eye – in the range between 380 and 500 nm. This allows you to recognize unevenness in the snow such as bumps and depressions. This makes skiing and snowboarding safer.
Furthermore, the snow goggles are available with ZEISS Sonar, and the models for men are available with polarizing filters. ZEISS POL snow goggles feature thermally shaped lenses with a red tint. They ensure:
Added safety and even more fun for your favourite sport
