It is equipped with a green measurement LED and a Shack-Hartmann sensor that allows you to precisely determine the power of the entire set of different lens materials and designs without the need to adjust the Abbe number.

ZEISS VISULENS 550 features an advanced UV transmission measurement system using a range of 365 to 490 nm in steps of 3 nm to precisely determine the current level of protection of the measured eyeglasses. The result: high precision and quality measurements for your patients and more upselling support for you.

How well are your patients’ eyes protected against UV radiation?

Almost 80 % of all organic eyeglass lenses sold worldwide do not protect from UV radiation up to 400 nm and therefore do not offer sunglass-level UV protection.1 With the ZEISS VISULENS 550 you can make your patients aware of the different levels of UV protection and recommend the best lens solution to protect their eyes.
