Measurement - Adaptation - Manufacturing
Each of our Bajohr-OPTECmed loupe glasses is a tailor-made and highly specialized work tool for professional use. For this reason, our measurements and adjustments are based on a multitude of individual parameters of the later user:
In the first meeting we ask about your experience with loupe glasses, clarify your expectations of the new system and jointly determine your wishes and requirements. From our large product range and the wide assortment of different manufacturers we have the exclusive opportunity to find out the really best system.
The optimal magnification of a loupe often does not mean the maximum possibility, but the magnification that is tailored to the respective requirements and makes sense. We clarify in detail for which work and which period of time the loupe system is to be used. On this basis, we recommend the magnification system and thus often also the design of the loupe. Galilean loupes are best suited for magnifications between 2 and 3.5x. Higher system magnifications of 3.6 to 6 or even 8x require a Keplerian loupe system.
Field of view
The size of the treatment area or the surgical field is naturally included in the calculation of the loupe system. For example, is only the root canal of importance or do you want to have an overview of the entire oral cavity. On the basis of this data and our decades of experience, we show precisely which loupe system has the most favorable ratio of magnification and field of view.
Working distance and ergonomics
The distance from the eye of the observer to the object is called the working distance. This can be determined individually in advance for almost all of our loupe glasses. The working distance depends, for example, on whether you treat standing or sitting, on your personal height (arm length) and on many factors related to ergonomics. We have specialized in this area for many years and, in cooperation with experts, train the correct body positions when working with loupe systems. The latest highly innovative products from our company provide the possibility of a completely new head posture, especially to protect the muscles in the neck and back area.
We are an ophthalmic optics company with an experience of over 35 years. Magnifying glasses are actually visual aids that were originally developed to improve visual performance in cases of high degrees of ametropia or eye diseases. Magnifying glasses for special use in the field of medicine were developed and launched by Bajohr together with Zeiss decades ago. In the course of the consultation, we always precisely analyze the individual visual acuity and any necessary correction of glasses. We always recommend the following sequence: 1) Best correction of visual acuity (visual acuity 100%), 2.) optimal magnification of the loupe systems and 3.) high homogeneous illumination of the field of vision. Only this combination provides a visual experience of the highest level. Therefore, the following also applies: The fitting of loupe glasses belongs in the hands of a highly specialized and experienced optician. Hands off loupe glasses of so-called experts or untrained dealers.
For the production of the loupe glasses, all individual personal data is included. We digitally determine the individual eye relief, the corneal vertex distance, the inclination of the frame, the individual points of view through the lens (according to eye pivot point requirements), etc. All eyeglasses are selected with regard to the appropriate lens size, comfortable nose pads and the correct temple length. At the end is the anatomical adaptation. We understand our craft.
On the basis of all these values and data, your wishes and requirements, we manufacture your loupe glasses at our company: With the result of an absolutely unique specimen. The new loupe glasses will make your work much easier every day. With the further goal of quality optimization and time saving. We use the best materials, branded lenses and only tested products. Certified on the basis of the MDR.
