Zeiss -- Better Vision

Everyone in my family has vision issues -- I would say "except me", but I've got issues, too. I suppose mine is due to age. I wear reading glasses but haven't yet moved on to prescription eyewear.

(Did you know that starting at age 40 your eyes start to experience natural age-related vision changes?)

Mike and Lizz both have worn glasses since childhood. And both have very stressful eye exams every year as their diagnosis / prescriptions change yearly.

Mike is not a candidate for Lasix and, apparently, Lizz can't apply until she's a bit older and they're certain she's stopped growing.

According to Zeiss Better VisionEye examinations are an important part of health maintenance. Based on vision tests, an eye care professional prescribes the optimum lenses to help sharpen vision. Having the right lenses is critical to seeing and experiencing life to the fullest.

That's something with which I absolutely agree. When we discovered that Lizz was in need of glasses, we made sure we went to the best eye doctor available.

The dedicated men and women of Zeiss offer a comprehensive set of Educational Tools.

The educational materials cover four topics:

*Facts to know about vision and lenses
*Tips for selecting an eye doctor
*Questions to ask at your next eye appointment
*Facts to know about age-related vision changes

These educational tools were created to enable eyeglass wearers to better understand their vision correction needs, ensure they get the most out of their next eye exam, and receive the best lenses to regain sharp vision.

One of the most important and impressive tools are the eight questions to ask your eye doctor.

Going to the eye doctor should not be a one-way conversation. The important questions below can help you get the most out of your time with your eye care professional.

1. Are all eyeglass lenses the same?

2. Is there a difference in quality of lenses?

3. What are the best lenses for my vision needs?

4. Why are these lenses best for my vision needs?

5. Can customized eyeglasses improve my vision quality and comfort?

6. Will one pair of glasses meet all of my vision needs?

7. Are there different methods to perform an eye exam? What method do you use and why?

8. What do you check for in an eye exam besides my prescription?

Carl Zeiss Vision ( is a global leader in precision optics. With a full line of advanced customized lenses, advanced performance coatings, i.Scription® by ZEISS diagnostic technology and a national laboratory network, Carl Zeiss Vision is dedicated to creating a better visual experience for patients and greater success for eye care practices.

ZEISS Products Help Us View the World:

*Astronauts relied on ZEISS quality lenses to take pictures of the first moon landing.
*Google Earth cameras are equipped with ZEISS precision lenses.
*Nobel Prize winners have relied on ZEISS microscopes for their award-winning research.
*ZEISS camera lenses have been used to film unforgettable movies such as The Lord of the Rings, Slumdog Millionaire and The King’s Speech.

ZEISS spent years developing cutting edge technology to improve the experience of eyeglass wearers with Zeiss Individual®. It is the first progressive lens to integrate how your frames, face and prescription work together to create a one-of-a-kind lens that is precisely personalized for the wearer.

i.Profilerplus® by ZEISS is a diagnostic tool that analyzes the performance of eyes to a level of detail far beyond traditional methods. These measurements are used to create a customized i.Scription® lens that meets the unique vision needs of the individual more accurately than any previous technology. The result is sharper vision with better contrast and color perception.

As you also know, Mike is a Land Surveyor and tells me that Zeiss makes the best optics for Surveying Instruments in the world. He's been blessed to have utilized those optics many times.

I urge you to visit Zeiss' Educational Tools and read up on all the information made available. It's so useful and practical. I wish I'd had it 14 years ago when Lizz needed corrective lenses -- I have a feeling her eyes would be in much better condition today.

You can rest assured, when I go for my next visit, I'll be discussing these points and asking my eye care professional all the right questions!

Your eyes are the window to your soul -- take care of them.
