We are very excited to announce that we have purchased the latest technology on the market for lens fitting, the ZEISS i.Terminal mobile. The new ZEISS i.Terminal mobile allows us to take all the fitting parameters in 60 seconds via an IPAD. This allows for even greater customization of lens parameters. All the information is stored in our system and we can take measurements for different frames for the same patient. This is particularly important for fitting progressive lenses or specialty lenses such as anti fatigue lenses or Smart Life Individual Single Vision Lenses.
We are of course taking advantage of this innovative technology to allow for appropriate physical distancing during COVID-19. The old way of taking measurements meant we were a few inches away from a patient’s face. The new i.Terminal mobile allows for greater distanciation and we can even take the images through the plexiglass.
How it works
Once you choose your frame, we adjust the frame on you so it fits comfortably and is well . Next, we place your new frame in the specialized calibration clip. Finally, you’ll be asked to look at the camera and we will take a series of photos while you are facing the iPad and then while turned to the side. Voilà, we have now taken all the necessary fitting measurements in a matter of 60 seconds!
What exactly are we measuring?
- Frame data (A, B, DBL)
- Interpupillary distance (PD)
- Monocular pupillary distance (mono PD)
- Fitting height, segment height
- Back vertex distance (BVD)
- Pantoscopic angle (PA)
- Wrap angle
- Head tilt
- Vergence compensation
Does this sound complicated to you? That’s ok, that’s why we have professionals taking and interpreting the data so we can make it look easy. After all, don’t you want to get your glasses and have the perfect fit and crisp, clear vision without having to come back to the clinic several times?
Precision is very important to us at ROCKLAND EYE CLINIC, that’s why we have invested in this latest technology by ZEISS. We are utilizing ZEISS high precision technology to give you an exceptional experience.
