PILLA ZEISS Progressive is a proprietary lens technology engineered by PILLA and ZEISS using Chromashift. The lens science provides athletes with three distinct advantages: enhanced depth of field, increased color management, and “live light” management. This new lens concept introduces a variable color filtration as well as multiple filtration color curves in the same lens. This variation in filtration and light transmission allows the eye to perform at its maximum focal potential while allowing for variable filtration saturation. The result is crisp vision at distance, rich definition of the sight picture, and the ability for the wearer to change transmittance to tune resolution immediately. Each lens has a specific science to manipulate color and transmittance.

Specialized Sport Applications

Pilla has pioneered many industry-leading technologies in shooting and archery sports and continues to set the standards in those sports as well as action shooting, equestrian sports, and for aviation professionals. We have worked with the best athletes in these sports in order to formulate the correct color filtrations for each condition an athlete would face. Archery products end in an "A" and have lens filtrations shown that are created specifically for archers. "AS" for action shooters, "E" for equestrian sport professionals.

Custom Filtration Colors

Every athlete needs something from their eyewear in order to perform at the next level. What do you need? Do you need the green trees in the background to disappear? Do you need the center on a target to pop? Do you need the color of the clay pigeon to stand out in the desert? All PILLA ZEISS lens filtrations have been specifically engineered in partnership with ZEISS to filter colors to have a very intentional effect. Whether you need enhanced definition, high contrast, neutralizer, max orange, or chromashift technology, there is a perfect Pilla ZEISS lens for your application.

Designed For Specific Lighting Conditions

Lighting conditions create unique challenges for light management. Many glasses manufacturers have only a handful of filtration options in order to try to address the myriad of environmental conditions an athlete could face. At Pilla, we have over 40 different filtration options developed in partnership with ZEISS that can address conditions from direct sun to diminishing light and everything in between. We have designed filtrations for each relevant lighting condition for every sport to help you always have the right equipment to perform your best.



All our Progressive ZEISS lenses benefit from the Chromashift Technical Platform. Chromashift is a lens technology where we manipulate the visual representation of color to produce a more intense color profile and "Shift" the actual color of the intended target. The Progressive platform enhances this technical achievement with both variable transmission and variable filters. Chromashift is a technology where we use special color dyes to produce faster registration of specific bands of color. Further Chromashift has the ability to change the way the eye sees color. In the Pilla Progressive platform the intensity of the saturation of color is higher producing superior depth of field and color resolution.


Progressive Zeiss Enhanced Definition lenses are a special filtration science where our engineers have enhanced the complete color spectrum to create a "balanced" color profile while allowing for the transmission to be variable. The goal of the lens technology is to provide the athlete with crystal clear definition. The use of a universal color lift gives the eye a balance of color saturation to produce high resolution imaging. This combination of color resolution and color saturation gives the athlete an enhanced definition of the sight picture. "Everything you see is more vivid." For the athlete looking for an intense color profile with a natural reproduction of the visual environment this is a perfect series of lenses using the Progressive platform for enhanced depth of field.


Progressive High Contrast Lens filters are found in the Grape, Dragon Fruit, Lemon, and Lime lenses. This technology utilizes an accelerated filtration curve that produces a high level of saturation to provide definition to the edges of the intended target. The variable filter allows for the eye to gain enhanced depth of field. We enhance the highs and the lows of color resolution. The ability of the lens to specify pieces of the visual light spectrum provides the High Contrast filters a unique visual representation of color where darks are more amplified while enhancing the light elements of the sight picture at the same time. This dual nature of darker being darker and lighter being brighter gives the image a high contrast registration.


Progressive Chromashift Max Orange is a lens tehcnology that is engineered to provide the athlete with up accelerated boost in target orange while enhancing depth of field. This technology is found in our “Max” PM lens, Plum, and Cherry progressive lens filters. This is key for clay target shooters looking for maximum registration of target Orange while benefiting from enhanced depth of field.


Progressive Zeiss "N" lenses harness a lens science which compresses color while allowing parts of the visual spectrum to be seen with vivid detail. The "N" family of lenses is engineered to "De-tune" green. In our Progressive Chromashift Technology the “N” lens provides enhanced depth of field. This family of lenses is perfect for athletes needing to negotiate visual registration against green backgrounds.


The success of our Progressive Lens technology has provide us with the opportunity to continue this special lens science. We have introduced four new lens technologies for 2021 that utilize our new Chromashift coating technology and enhance dyes and pigments to dial up the efficacy of these lenses. The four new lenses provide a super spectrum of usage from green background neutralization to our highest target orange color lift.
