Your vision deserves the best care. Because nobody sees like you.
We offer tailored vision solutions. Because one-size-fits-all simply won’t do.
Nobody sees you like we do.
Your vision through the eyes of an optical giant.
ZEISS Vision Care is part of the larger ZEISS Group. With ZEISS Medical Technology, we cover the entire spectrum of eye health care needs during a person’s lifetime.
In addition to corrective lenses, we produce the technology used by eye care professionals to test, diagnose and treat eye conditions. ZEISS’s extensive expertise across various fields of optics informs the design and science behind our vision care products – including your ZEISS eyeglasses.
Unlock YOUR visual world.We’re committed to helping you:
Seeing beyond since 1846.
We’ve been around for a while. But we’re just getting started.
Let’s look at a few milestones that have shaped the ZEISS we love today.
Carl Zeiss opened his first workshop for precision mechanics and optical instruments in Jena, Germany in 1846. He focused on microscope production. Soon, he was supplying the regional market and also shipping his wares around the world.
Today:Today:An optical powerhouse
ZEISS is an internationally leading technology enterprise operating in various fields of optics and optoelectronics with annual revenue totalling over 8.8 billion euros.
1889:1889:A solid foundation
After the passing of Carl Zeiss, his business partner Ernst Abbe created the Carl Zeiss Foundation. It would become the company’s sole owner. Its profits benefited science, social and cultural projects, and the workforce, too.
Today:Today:Still all about innovation
ZEISS is still a 100% foundation-owned company. We still reinvest a large proportion of our profits into research, science, education and social responsibility programmes.
1912:1912:Pioneering vision care
The launch of ZEISS Punktal spectacle lenses in 1912 marked the birth of the eyeglass lens industry. These lenses revolutionised the calculation and manufacture of corrective lenses for glasses.
Today:Today:Your holistic eye health care partner
We’re still setting industry standards to advance the quality of eye care. Beyond tailor-made vision correction, protecting your eye health over the long term is our priority.
1950s:1950s:The first surgical microscopes
The adaptation of ZEISS microscopes for use in surgeries opened up new possibilities for medical professionals and their patients.
Today:Today:Hope when times are tough
ZEISS MultiSEM is the world‘s fastest electron microscope. It helps doctors better understand the human brain – and develop effective treatments. ZEISS is the go-to tech in many surgeries around the globe.
1969:1969:To the moon
ZEISS camera lenses documented the first moon landing in 1969.
Today:Today:Still in space – and in your pocket
Google Earth satellites use our telescopes to capture our planet from space. Your smartphone camera might also feature ZEISS lenses.
In 1977 ZEISS unveiled S-Planar 10/0.28 – the first lens to enable the opto-lithographic production of 1 µm structures. This laid the foundation for the first wafer stepper – a crucial component for microchip production.
Today:Today:Shaping modern life
Even smaller, more powerful and more efficient. ZEISS Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology enables chip manufacturers around the world to produce structures up to 5,000x thinner than a human hair.
We’ve been part of amazing adventures.
We’re investing in a bright future.
