It is a familiar situation: the rain beats against the windshield, blurring traffic signs and the roads. The glaring lights of oncoming traffic blind you. With the utmost concentration, you steer your car through the darkness past a large construction site. But you can barely see the road. Upon reaching your destination, you decide to no longer drive at night.
Many eyeglass wearers are impaired when driving at night even though their glasses enable good vision during the day. The cause is usually visual defects that are not detected during traditional refraction. And, you can only correct what you can clearly see. The new i.Scription lens optimization procedure from Carl Zeiss lets you see more. A special measuring machine analyzes the human eye down to a hundredth of a diopter, i.e., 25 times more precise than previous measurements. In addition, the technology records visual defects which were not measured in the past. These are responsible, for example, for reduced vision in poor light or at night.
Two additional steps follow the refraction process at the eye doctor: Carl Zeiss calculates the lenses using a new mathematical procedure and finally produces the lenses with maximum accuracy. You may be wondering what the difference is to a normal lens? i.Scription is high-tech ophthalmic optics. The accuracy down to one hundredth of a diopter applies not only to the analysis, but also the production of the lenses. Complex visual defects can be eliminated with optimal lenses and visual performance at night can also be clearly improved. This helps you get where you're going at night or in the twilight.
