The self-tinting lenses that react fast to changing light.
PhotoFusion® was created by ZEISS experts to meet the consumers’ expectation of self-tinting lenses that darken and turn clear faster*. The introduction of PhotoFusion® in 2011 has given the self-tinting market a revival in these kind 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.
