New Equipment

23 Dec 2017 << back to list

I have always been keen to be able to offer the most modern technology available to our clients.

In the summer I invested in a PhoroNaomi and Phoropterpter for the large consulting room to replace the trial frame and sepa-rate lenses that I have used for the last 31 years. It is controlled from a dashboard on the computer monitor and links to the test chart providing seamless integration at the click of a mouse. The main benefit for me is that my arms aren’t stretched out all the time which causes all sorts of postural problems. The benefit for you is that it saves you having to wear the heavy trial frames which often leave a red mark on the bridge of your nose.

So far, the phoropter is only in the large consulting room, but now that Naomi has moved in there I think I will have to invest in one for the other room. 


The other piece of equipment that I have installed is called a VisioOffice and it is designed to take the critical measurements Chloe using visiofficerequired for the latest generation of high tech personalised lenses.

We all use our eyes slightly differently. Some people move their heads more, whilst others move their eyes. Our eyes are also slightly different sizes so have different centres of rotation, and some scan smoothly across a page whilst others track in a more jerky fashion.

All of these traits are individual to the person, so the VisioOffice is designed to measure these and allow us to create bespoke lenses for each person creating the ultimate visual experience. These measurements can be applied to the whole range of Essilor varifocal lenses, but are especially useful in the new top range of ‘X’ Design lenses.

I will continue to assess and install the latest equip-ment in the practice to provide the very best experience and products for our clients.
