ZEISS PhotoFusion®

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.

  • 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**
