more about some of our technology below and the benefits it brings to
® plus- Objective Refraction and Corneal Topography
The i.Profiler® plus is the 4-in-1 system with ocular wavefront aberrometer,
autorefractometer, ATLAS corneal topographer and keratometer. The fully
automated measurement creates an optical ‘fingerprint’ of
your eye and enables all measurements of both eyes including detection
of aberrations in approximately 60 seconds.
ZEISS i.Scription - Wavefront Abberometry
Every eye is as unique as a human fingerprint. With i.Profilerplus®
by ZEISS more than 2,500 reference points within your eye are examined
to produce an extremely detailed vision profile. Unlike traditional exams,
varying light conditions are also taken into account to provide customized
vision—both day and night. This comprehensive information is used
to create a refined prescription or i.Scription®, that perfectly matches
your unique vision profile. The resulting eyeglass lenses are produced
to an accuracy far higher than seen in traditional eyeglass lenses and
are personalized especially for your unique vision needs.
As a result, vision problems, such as blurry vision, halo effects, and
visual discomfort can be recognized and improved. Eyeglass lenses with
i.Scription technology can improve color and contrast, as well as vision
at night and in low-light—giving you your best vision possible.
ZEISS precision lenses with i.Scription technology for better vision
Better Night/Low-light Vision. Looking directly at a light source at night,
such as car lights, results in glare and halo effects. i.Scription technology
by ZEISS reduces image noise.
Better Color Vision. i.Scription technology by ZEISS adds brilliance to
your life and lets you see colors as they really are: bright and more intense.
Better Visual Contrast. Seeing contrast, such as white letters on a black
background is especially challenging for the eyes. i.Scription technology
by ZEISS sharpens contrast.
ZEISS i.Terminal - Centration Measurement System
Proper lens placement within your chosen frames is as important as an accurate
prescription. Proper lens positioning minimizes headaches, incorrect body
posture, and eye strain. Many details need to be taken into account, such
as the distance between the eyes and pupils, the proportions of the face,
the tilt and wrap of the frames, and even posture, to accurately position
the lenses within the frames. Without these measurements, up to 40% of
valuable visual acuity can be lost. This is important for single vision
lenses and especially important for progressive lenses.
With the i.Terminal 2 by ZEISS, all of the necessary measurements are
captures in only 60 seconds—to a precision of 1/10th of a millimeter--to
create lenses made for your unique features.
Lenses that are precisely personalized for your face, frame, and prescription
will provide you with:
- Better fitting lenses
- Optimum vision
- Reduced eye strain
Humphrey® Matrix -
Visual Field Analyzer
The Humphrey Matrix represents the latest breakthrough for early visual
field loss detection testing. It combines the capability to detect glaucoma
early and accurately with tools for long-term management and detect other
eye diseases. It also enhances the ability to conduct a thorough visual
field evaluation and assess treatment alternatives.
CIRRUS Photo 600 Instrument – Fundus Imaging and Optical Coherence
CIRRUS photo delivers combined fundus and OCT reports that enable quick
assessments for a wide variety of retina and posterior segment disorders.
Retinal imaging and image analysis is important as many eye diseases as
well as systemic diseases manifest themselves in the retina. These might
include age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.
Visuplan (NCT) - Non-contact Tonometer
A tonometry test measures the pressure inside your eye, which is called
intraocular pressure (IOP). The measurement of IOP is part of a professional
glaucoma evaluation and with the Zeiss Visuplan it is fast and very comfortable
for our patients to do this test. Glaucoma is an eye disease that can
cause blindness by damaging the nerve in the back of the eye.
Slit Lamp -
From daily routine to specialized examinations it allows the doctor to
see areas of the front of the eye, including eyelids, conjunctiva, iris,
lens, sclera, cornea, retina and optic nerve. It helps in diagnosing items
such as macular degeneration, detached retina, cataracts and injury to
the cornea. Fun Fact- Carl Zeiss developed the first slit lamp back in
1911 together with Swedish ophthalmologist and Nobel laureate Allvar Gullstrand.
Visulens 500 - Automated Lensmeter
This verifies the correct prescription in a pair of eyeglasses to properly
orient and mark uncut lenses, and to confirm the correct mounting of lenses
in spectacle frames. It also can measure nearsighted and stigmatism in
your eyewear and helps to determine if there has been changes in sight.
Visuphor 500 & Visuscreen 100 - Automated Subjective Refraction
Optimal visual outcomes in patients requires careful measurement of subjective
and objective refractive error. The ZEISS VISUSCREEN 500 with Polatest
technology comes with a variety of vision tests to perform monocular and
binocular testing with different test charts, as well as special tests
for children. It allows for easier visual acuity tests and allows the
doctor to learn more about the interaction between both eyes.
