One glance at statistics reveals this fact: Road casualty statistics show that 40% of all traffic collisions in the UK occur at night, despit only 60% of the amoutn of traffic being on the roads (Source: RoSPA Road Safety 2008).
Consequently, the risk of having a traffic accident is at its highest level at night: Light cones, reflections, mirror images, limited vision, low contrasts and overall adverse visual conditions irritate and fatigue the eyes and the human sensory system overall.
However, these limitations do not only increase the risk of accidents, they also have a negative impact on the quality of life of the people who have to live with them. They feel handicapped and insecure; have a tough time driving at night at all and enjoy night time outdoor activities less during the seasons when the days are shorter.
A complex and patented computation process is used to translate the analysed data along with the subjective refraction data into information that results in the production of a precision spectacle lens that perfectly matches the affected eye and the individual vision challenges. Based on these highly precise ZEISS measurements and calculations, these lenses are manufactured in 1/100 dioptric nuances.
Conventional spectacles, on the other hand, are usually produced increments of 0.25 dioptres. Consequently, the ZEISS solution is more precise than any other measuring process for lenses available today.
Carl Zeiss Vision‘s i.Scription® system comprises three components: The innovative eye measuring device i.Profiler® by ZEISS (see photo), the optimisation technology i.Scription® – and last, but not least, the services provided by your optometrist.
Our eyes are our most important sense organ. And since each eye is as unique as a fingerprint, it requires a customised visual analysis at your optometrist.
