If you need new prescription glasses, the selection process is a bit more complicated than just picking out a pair of frames you think looks good. The optometry team at Wing Eyecare in Cincinnati, OH, understands there are several factors to consider when finding patients the best prescription glasses. While other eye care offices and technicians will use an old-fashioned ruler to calculate measurements, Wing Eyecare makes use of the latest device in digital imaging technology — Optikam. Optikam is a more accurate means of taking measurements and offers other unique benefits compared to other methods.
Wing Eyecare was the first facility in the Tri-State area to start implementing the new Optikam digital imaging technology. In just one minute, Optikam can take all the measurements needed for free-form lenses. With one photograph of your face, the device will provide measurements for pupillary distance, vertex distance, pantoscopic tilt, multi-focal seg heights, and more. After measurements are taken, Optikam can also help you preview different lenses. You’ll get to see the thickness of the lenses and how they would look with or without options like anti-reflective treatment, polarization, or transitions. Not only that, you’ll also be able to see up to four images of yourself sporting different frames.
As you can see, there are a number of benefits to using Optikam when selecting new prescription glasses. Speak to your eye doctor at Wing Eyecare to learn more about this fantastic piece of digital optometry equipment.
