ZEISS PhotoFusion

The self-tinting lenses that react fast to changing light.

PhotoFusion was created by ZEISS experts to meet consumer expectations on self-tinting lenses that darken and clear again faster*. The introduction of PhotoFusion in 2011 has triggered a revival in the self-tinting market for these kinds of lenses.

A state-of-the-art technology for strong performance

Fast dark. Fast clear.

PhotoFusion lenses adapt quickly to changing light conditions. The high- and mid-index lenses react up to 2 times faster* from dark to clear and up to 20% faster* from clear to dark than previous photochromic lenses by ZEISS.

  • Lenses darken to 15 %T** in 15–30 seconds*
  • Lenses fade back to 70 % T** in 5–10 minutes*

Comfortable Vision.

Indoors the PhotoFusion lenses are very clear whereas outside they turn very dark in the sunlight.

  • Clear state: 92% T**
  • dark state: 11% T**

T = transmission based on AR coated lenses.
