With its i.Terminal go, ZEISS provides barrier-free centration software for tablets that enables eye care professionals to take a simple first step into digital centration.

High Quality Centration for All Cases

Centration today: from manual to digital

The best eyeglass lens can only reach its full potential if it is correctly centered. A digital centration tool can help eye care professionals to deliver data that meet the requirements for customized, ultra-precise quality eyeglass lenses. The ZEISS i.Terminal go provides a smooth transition from manual to digital centration. Only a tablet and the Centration Frame-Clip are needed. No server and additional software have to be installed and no fixed devices set up.

The handling is super simple: the front and side image with the spectacles frame and Centration Frame-Clip is automatically activated when in the correct position and is all that's needed for centration. The distance to the customer, which is often required today, is given because the image can only be taken when a certain distance is maintained. At the end of the procedure the centration parameters can be sent directly to the ZEISS VISUSTORE for ordering the lenses.

The advantages at a glance

  • Precise centration combined with a digital customer experience
  • Quick and easy image capture
  • Rapid and simple calculation of the centration parameters
  • Automatic face recognition
  • Vergence compensation technology ensures parallel line of sight
  • Low entry barriers - only a tablet is needed, Centration Frame-Clip comes with the software
  • No additional equipment taking up floor space

The software operation is intuitive and easy to understand so even staff with little previous experience can quickly learn to operate the ZEISS i.Terminal go. If other centration tools are already in use, the ZEISS i.Terminal go can be used as a simple addition on particularly busy days and is ideal to replace the pupillometer.

From ZEISS i.Terminal go to ZEISS VISUFIT 1000 Platform – everything from a single supplier

Anyone in the digital world wanting to offer a professional service to their customers will find the right equipment at ZEISS. ZEISS i.Terminal go can be the optimal entry-level solution for digital centration. Anyone making the additional investment in a server can also archive and retrieve further data with the ZEISS i.Terminal mobile as well as experience an all-round world of service with ZEISS VISUCONSULT 500.

ZEISS i.Terminal 2 is a stationary device and provides a very high standard of accuracy as well as other advantages thanks to patented ZEISS laser technology. It represents the proven centration solution enhancing patient experience. Furthermore, the ZEISS VISUFIT 1000 Platform is ideal for those wanting to lift precision and customer experiences onto a completely new level. Three-dimensional centration is achieved by nine cameras with only one click and no Centration Frame-Clip so consumers can see themselves with the chosen frame from nine different angels. An avatar of the consumer is created which can be subsequently used for the 180° comparison of frames and to simulate different eyeglass lenses, or even try on glasses from home1.

With this range of instruments ZEISS offers the right solution for every level of digitalization and every need. ZEISS i.Terminal go is currently available as a non-medical device in more than ten countries including Brazil, India and Colombia. Availability will be extended to further markets as a medical device in the future.
