Translation of Document that comes with goggles:
Protection of the eye against glare and invisible radiation.
Against an excess of light, i.e. against glare, the eye must be protected so that performance and personal safety are guaranteed.
Likewise, the eye needs protection against damage that can be caused by increased invisible radiation (ultraviolet and ultraviolet).
Requirements for anti-glare glasses
a) Sufficient exposure to light due to sufficiently strong coloring
b) Neutral coloring for the uniform vaping of all colors from red to violet, so that the image of nature remains un-distorted.
c) Adequate attention of the harmful ultra-red and ultraviolet radiation from sunlight
Services of the Zeiss Umbral Glass
a) Zeiss Umbral reduces the dazzling brightness by 75%. Details and outlines that are otherwise outshone or veiled appear more clearly; better assessment of incline, slope, and distance.
b) Because of its neutral brown color, Zeiss-Umbral steams the light of all spectra colors almost evenly. Toning and saturation of the colors remain almost unchanged. The brightness contrasts even experience an average increase, which has a favorable effect on the visual chart.
c) Zeiss-Umbral is chemically composed in such a way that the invisible ultraviolet and ultraviolet radiation is also held up, which is increased especially in higher altitudes (in the mountains, on the plane), in the southernmost latitudes (tropics), and on the sea and painful eyes. Can cause inflammation.
Carl Zeiss – Jena –
Merz-Werke – Frankfurt a. M.-R
About Zeiss – Founded in 1846 – Carl Zeiss (1816 – 1888) was a visionary entrepreneur. In 1846, Carl Zeiss opened a workshop in Jena on Neugasse No. 7 for precision mechanics and optical instruments. He focused his activities more and more on microscope production. Soon he was supplying not only the regional market but also shipping his wares around the world. In 1935, Alexander Smakula joined the company and he developed a coating technique to reduce lens reflection.
In the years of the Nazi dictatorship, the company’s scientific and production potential was increasingly focused on equipping the German armed forces. Airplanes, submarines, tanks and guns were fitted with Zeiss instruments.
After the unconditional surrender of the German armed forces, the allies also held Zeiss responsible for its contribution to the preparation and conducting of the Nazi war of aggression. The Americans, who occupied the Zeiss Works from April to June 1945, requisitioned patents, design documents and special production equipment. They weakened the potential of the company by deporting leading specialist staff to Heidenheim a.d. Brenz in the West.
In 1946/47, the Soviet occupation power dismantled all production equipment and took scientists, engineers and specialist staff to the USSR.
