Did you know that lens fitting errors can reduce optical performance by up to 40%? If fitting is so important why do so many optometrists still just use a felt tip pen and plastic ruler to fit your glasses?
Studies by ZEISS Vision Care suggest that if a progressive lens is incorrectly centred by as little as 1.0mm then up to 50% of the intermediate and near vision areas are compromised. This will result in a narrower intermediate and reading area - impacting how you see and lead your daily life.
At Fitzgerald Optometry we believe your best vision can only be achieved if your lenses are fitted to match the shape of your face, the position of your eyes, the inclination of your head and the position of your glasses on your nose. So we use the latest technology from ZEISS – Visufit 1000 – to measure all of our patients digitally, quickly and with far more accuracy than using a felt tip pen.
The ZEISS VISUFIT 1000 creates a 180-degree view of your face and the frames using nine cameras and 45 million points of reference. The centration data determination is based on 3D coordinates. This is an extraordinary addition to the existing measurement points on the calibration clip for ZEISS i.Terminal 2, and it ensures the extremely precise capture of measurement data for the frame, the eye, the pupil and the cornea. The back-vertex distance can be determined for both sides, right and left. Furthermore, a 3D digital reconstruction of the face can be created and enables the back-vertex distance to be captured, even with frames featuring very thick temples. This is to ensure your new ZEISS precision lenses provide 100% performance. Book Now
