Essentially, a digital video centration system performs the basic measurements, such as pupillary distance, segment height for progressive lenses, vertex distance, panoramic angle, and pantoscopic tilt. A digital photo function is also included for capturing how the consumer looks wearing the spectacles.
While the refraction position is the matching of the prescription with the consumers’ visual needs, the visuReal system provides a set of measurements that allow the laboratory to make alterations to the lens design to match the consumer’s prescription needs for maximizing visual quality.
The main benefits of a visuReal system are that precision and accuracy are enhanced, as it takes more precise readings as compared to the traditional method, minimizing human error.
Practitioners who think they can rely on existing skill sets will see themselves losing competitive advantage over the years when consumers stop coming back as they are not keeping up with the current technology.
