ZEISS Vision Centers – 21st Century Eyecare

The concept behind a ZEISS Vision Center is to create a whole new shopping experience for consumers, from frame selection and precise vision measurement to careful lens consultation, finally getting the customers a pair of spectacles that really fits their needs. With more than 100 years of pioneering eyeglass lens technology, cutting-edge refraction, lens dispensing technology and – last but not least – a comprehensive portfolio of customizable eyeglass lenses, ZEISS Vision Care brings all to the optical store which is needed to provide everyone with the best vision experience.

"I am very excited about our new partnership with ZEISS, world-leading brand for eyeglass lenses and optics”, said Gustavo. “Together we will bring 21st century vision care to consumers who know that true luxury lies the combination of fashionable frames with individually optimized eyeglass lenses. It is about providing demanding consumers with better vision instead of just a new pair of glasses.” The new center with 140 square meters and its appealing, fully ZEISS branded store design is located in the Rua Bela Cintra in the district of Jardins.

When Patients Become Customers

The dual nature of the eyeglass wearer

One of the most surprising properties of light is its dual nature: light possesses the properties of classic waves as well as classic particles. The lesson on the wave-particle duality of light in physics class might have been a watershed moment for generations of students: it was at this point that they decided to not delve any deeper into the phenomena of wave and quantum physics. But we do not need to dwell on the field of physics to observe another instance of this dual nature. Instead, we need only to look at our own "physical" (and emotional) behavior when purchasing a pair of glasses.
