Carl Zeiss Vision Launches the PrescripSun Sun Lens Series
SAN DIEGO, CA (Feburary 27, 2009) - Carl Zeiss Vision announces the launch of PrescripSun, a new premium sun lens program that addresses the growing category of Rx sunwear. PrescripSun offers patented lenses, coatings, tint treatments and edging capabilities designed specifically for fashion, sports and performance sunglass eyewear, and is available through Carl Zeiss Vision Laboratories.

PrescripSun provides precision sun lens products to meet every patients exact need, including:

Spazio - These single vision patented wrap lenses deliver uncompromising clarity edge-to edge and unparalleled wearing comfort in even the most challenging wrap frames.

Expanded Polarized Offerings SOLA HDV polarized is now available in hard resin and polycarbonate, in standard and wrap frames. SOLAOne HD, Compact Ultra HD, and AO Easy HD polarized are also available in standard frames. Spazio wraps and standard single vision are available in four new polarized colors.

Performance Lens Series (PLS) Tints - The PLS range includes four highly specific tint enhancements, each with unique filtering capabilities, designed to optimize the wearers visual experience for demanding outdoor activities.

Tri-Flection Mirrors These low hue flash mirror treatments are highly scratch-resistant and easy to clean, and virtually eliminate the staining and smudges often associated with standard mirrors.

Customized Lenses SOLA HDV combines advanced customization with patented back-surface technology and wrap frame compensation to produce an unsurpassed High Definition wearing experience in performance wrap frames.

Standard Progressives - GT2 by ZEISS and SOLAOne progressives are now offered in wrap-compensated frames for polarized and regular lenses.

Carl Zeiss Visions proprietary edging and glazing technology assures PrescripSun lenses fit securely and are cosmetically appealing for a wide range of frames or treatments.

PrescripSun by Carl Zeiss Vision offers one of the most comprehensive sun lens programs on the market for prescription sunglass eyewear, said Claude Labeeuw, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for Carl Zeiss Vision North America. Now eye care professionals can provide their patients sun lens options in any style or treatment for fashion, sport and performance sunglasses.

The PrescripSun sun lens series is available through all 17 Carl Zeiss Vision laboratories beginning March 2nd, 2009. PrescripSun will be featured at the Carl Zeiss Vision booth (#LP1320) at Vision Expo East.
