Vintage Zeiss Sunglasses and Glasses Frames
Zeiss is an old stalwart within the German optical industry. Founded in 1846 by Carl Zeiss, they are more famous for optical lenses than eyewear design. Zeiss lenses have been used in everything from telescopes to cameras that take pictures on the moon - so they know a thing or two about vision. Our collection of vintage Zeiss frames was made in Germany with many including their highly prized Zeiss mineral lenses.
The popularity of Zeiss owes little to celebrity and everything to the quality of the frames and lens. If you have worn a pair of Zeiss sunglasses or optical frames fitted with Zeiss lenses - you will know how hard it is to equal the structural quality and clarity of vision that Zeiss vintage frames provide.
A pair of vintage Zeiss sunglasses are essential for eyewear collectors with an appreciation for quality. Fit any of our vintage Zeiss frames with modern Zeiss lenses from our lensing collections to create a totally new Zeiss style that mixes the new and the old. But in our opinion, if the frames are already fitted with some Zeiss Umbral lenses you should keep them in their original styles, trust us you will not be disappointed.
