Low Vision Devices for Work: When Better Vision is Just Not Good Enough

ZEISS precision loupes for those who have to have a good eye for detail in their jobs

Teleloupe glasses are ideal for professionals such as dentists or engineers who need to be able to achieve the ultimate in precision in their work, even with tiny objects. But only customized solutions featuring optimal technical precision ensure that professionals get what they need in their everyday work: precise and fatigue-free vision down to the very last detail.

Are you a dentist, dental technician or dermatologist and do you perform minor surgical procedures in your practice? Are you a precision or electrical engineer, restorer, jeweler or beautician? If so, you know how important it is to be able to see even the smallest details precisely and comfortably. But what points should you pay attention to when buying a low vision device and what is the state of the art?

The size of the field of view is the key factor for low vision devices used in professional applications. The user must be able to see the entire field of action. Therefore, the size of the field of view must be optimized for the teleloupe glasses and head-worn loupes from ZEISS Vision Care.

But ZEISS Vision Care goes even further: the low vision device must be tailored to the personal requirements of each user. The new innovative G 2.5 TTL teleloupe glasses have therefore been designed as a Galilean-type system for which both the eyepieces of the optics and the carrier lenses of the glasses are available in prescription strength. Therefore, each G 2.5 TTL teleloupe system is unique and features optimum ZEISS quality. Your ZEISS eye care professional will precisely match your teleloupe glasses to your centering data. Your personalized teleloupe glasses will then be specially produced for you on the basis of this data. This ensures that you will see a distortion-free, high-contrast image.

Last but not least, relaxed and fatigue-free work is also very important – despite or indeed because of the use of a low vision device. The optimum matching of magnification and working distance ensures a relaxed, almost upright posture – regardless of body size and the work situation. ZEISS teleloupe systems ensure convenient work and an excellent view of details. Their special frames with temples and headband enables these systems to be perfectly fitted on the head.

The Saphiro2 LED illumination system  is an ideal match for the teleloupe systems from ZEISS Vision Care. It provides reliable, shadow-free and precise illumination with very bright light similar to daylight. Furthermore, it is a real featherweight that does not disturb the wearer. The system is powered by a battery.

Checklist: Quality criteria for low vision devices

Unrestricted movement is retained. The Saphiro2 LED illumination system can be attached to all head-worn loupes from ZEISS Vision Care.

  • Maximum imaging quality,
  • And largest possible field of view
    >> As the field of view decreases with increasing magnification, it is extremely important that the best possible optics are selected, but with the lowest magnification necessary. This is the only way to avoid rapid eye fatigue.
  • AR-coated lens surfaces for maximum visibility
  • Light and bright illumination system
  • Low vision devices are matched to specific tasks and situations and optimized to meet the individual requirements of the wearer. The optimum matching of magnification and working distance is taken into account for each wearer.
