Distance glasses

Clear vision at a distance

Do distant objects appear blurred? Do you have trouble watching TV and making out road signs? Many people who wear glasses will be familiar with such difficulties. The most common cause is short-sightedness. The further away objects are, the more blurred they appear. These are common visual defects that can be corrected in most people under 40 with a customised pair of single vision distance glasses.

How do I know if I need distance glasses?

Distance glasses correct a range of visual defects: short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. As the name suggests, they enable wearers to see distant objects more clearly. They’re normally used by people up to the age of 40. After that – and sometimes in people as young as 35 – the eye’s lens starts to lose its elasticity, which makes it difficult to see nearby objects clearly. This is where reading glasses– or digital or progressive lenses – come in, helping us see clearly at all distances. The virtually invisible engraving is a guarantee that you’re wearing ZEISS lenses.

Tried-and-true ZEISS quality: clear vision, fast adaptation.

People tend to see better with tailor-made glasses. To get not only good but outstanding results with your new distance glasses, we’ll fit your lenses to all your visual needs at the ZEISS VISION CENTER Decraene Kortrijk . So in addition to your prescription, many other aspects will be taken into account in the lens design, such as anatomical factors like the position of the eyes behind the lenses or how the lens fits on the nose and ears. Therefore, distance glasses achieve precise correction and excellent wearer tolerance with rapid adaptation.

Another benefit is that our distance glasses with ZEISS lenses are designed for good vision right up to the edges. Irritating blurs and distortions when looking through the upper rim of the lenses are a thing of the past – even with high prescriptions and visual defects like astigmatism or heterophoria. Thanks to our Cosmetic Edge® Technology, we can achieve this level of clarity even with curved frames like sports glasses.

Flat lens design with no googly eyes.

We understand that you don’t just want excellent vision with your distance lenses, you also want to look good. Attractive modern frames go hand in hand with thinner lenses that don’t give you googly eyes. To achieve this, we use only premium-quality materials and modern production methods that allow us to manufacture exceptionally flat, lightweight lenses, even for high prescriptions and particular visual defects. This minimises the unsightly magnifying glass effect. This way, your eyes will retain their natural look, appearing neither too big nor too small.

Did you know: We also use wavefront technology to measure your eyes at the ZEISS VISION CENTER Decraene Kortrijk , thus creating a perfect replica of your eyes, which are as unique as your fingerprints. On request, and using technology only available at specific ZEISS opticians, this comprehensive analysis can even be used to create fully customised lenses. The benefit? Better vision at night and in poor light, increased contrast vision and more intensive colour perception.

Our tip for distance glasses.

The fit of a pair of glasses has a big impact on how well you can see. Are your distance glasses bent, is the nose bridge damaged, or are the hinges faulty? Just drop by the ZEISS VISION CENTER Decraene Kortrijk we’ll take care of everything! The same goes for scratches or a damaged coating, in which case all you need is often just a new lens.
