Over my career, I’ve had the opportunity to try more than a dozen different loupes of varying styles and magnifications. As technology evolves, we worry about becoming outdated. And as we age, our vision will sadly change.
Orascoptic has a wonderful solution: EyeZooms are the first adjustable-magnification loupes. I can create 3, 4 or 5x magnification with the spin of a dial. It’s like having a mini microscope, depending on what I’m doing and the focal distance I prefer. My XV1 frames have this lens along with a wireless light. The light is activated by touching a sensor built into the logo on the temple arm. I wondered if having so much in one loupe would be cumbersome on my neck, but the frames are well-balanced, and I’ve been using them for several years now.
For those who want a modern-style frame with varying magnification, there is the newer version called OmniOptic. Its unique design features a magnetic anchor within the frame, which allows you to upgrade your magnification easily. These loupes allow for four magnifications, ranging from 2.5 to 5.5x. Don’t discard those frames; just purchase a new power when you’re ready.
Orascoptic hasn’t forgotten about hygienists. The RDH Elite is lightweight, with a steeper declination angle to reduce neck strain. The frame is fashion forward, allowing for interchangeable temple tips to suit the personality of each user.
So what’s taking you so long? Check out their website and find the loupe that suits you.
