1. Spectacles with anti-reflective coating for a clear view
Our lenses play a quite decisive role in our smile – and not as you might assume because of how the frames look. The person we are talking to needs to see our eyes as clearly as possible. For instance, the lenses must not have an unpleasant mirror effect. Our tip: A high-performance anti-reflective coating is very important for us to be able to show our eyes as naturally as possible to the person we are talking to.
2. Thin slender plastic lenses for a great look
Lenses with high prescription strength can significantly alter how our eyes look. The greater the level of visual impairment is, the thicker and heavier the lenses that are normally needed. People who are long-sighted and use positive lenses have spectacles which are thick and outward-curving. These spectacles make their eyes look larger. Short-sighted people, on the other hand, use negative lenses and their eyes appear smaller. Both of these effects can put the eyes of the spectacles wearer at a disadvantage. As a result, their smile might not appear as natural as it should. Our tip: Highly refractive, special plastic materials and optimised lens designs can make eyeglass lenses comfortably light and thin. This avoids unwanted effects and the size of your eyes appears more natural for the observer.
3. Sunglasses are a communication killer:
They are a cool, fashionable accessory and a pleasant and effective way of not being dazzled by bright sunlight: Everyone knows that sunglasses are an important way for us to protect our eyes against strong sunlight. However, they put a real damper on communication during an important conversation, for example. The person we are talking to can no longer detect the quite decisive signals from eye contact and the expression in our eyes. It is possible that our counterpart might find this quite unpleasant. Our tip: for an important conversation, retreat to the shade and push up your sunglasses elegantly onto your brow or pop them back in their case.
What if you don't have your "normal" spectacles with you? We have something that could help: For those who need to use their visual aid all the time and do not wish to carry two pairs of spectacles around, self-tinting lenses such as the new PhotoFusion from ZEISS could be helpful. These eyeglass lenses change from bright to tinted and back again even faster than before.
