3D EYE EXAM
No Ordinary Eye Exams.
Finally in Vicenza, a highly specialized and technological eye exam that replaces the traditional one.
What is the difference between an Optician and an Optometrist?
In many cases (like mine), after a series of training studies, an Optician can elevate his professional figure and become an Optometrist.
Unlike the Optician, the Optometrist has the possibility to diagnose more complex aspects of Vision, improving the visual “life” of people who do not have eye diseases.
What is Optometric Control.
Optometry derives from Optics and is in some ways an evolution.
Unlike the Optician, the Optometrist bases his knowledge on physical, biological, psychological, optometric, contactlogical and anatomical-physiological bases.
In short, he studies how you are made, why you look that way, how you can protect your sight, improve it over time and help you see better, in addition to the so-called “ten tenths”.
What does “First 3D Eye Exam” mean?
After a long training course, in 2017 our Optical Centre was chosen as the First Optometric Studio in Vicenza in which to apply the 3D Eye Exam (third dimension) exclusively on the territory of Vicenza.
Unlike all traditional vision controls and most Optometric Controls, in OtticaLAB the Optometric eye exam is completely in Third Dimension because it aims to put the customer in the most natural visual conditions possible.
Before the technical explanation of the new 3D system, do you remember your last eye exam?
The “traditional” control still provides for the use of the occluder, an object in the shape of a “palette” which, during the eye examination, the optician places in front of one of the two eyes.
The occluder is a visual barrier that suspends vision in front of one eye.
Even if this has always been the case, it has never been taken into account that in reality our eyes are connected to each other.
By “mechanically” interrupting the vision of one, the vision of the other is in fact also affected.
The new 3D Optometric Eye Exam replace the old manual occluder DIGITALIZING images with polarization.
Polarizing an image means perceiving only a part of it.
Imagine that the lenses of the eyeglass are 2 small windows and that in each window there is a Venetian blind placed one horizontal and the other vertical.
The light will pass through both windows, but will have a different orientation.
On a visual level the same thing happens.
Thanks to the polarization you will avoid objects that affect the vision, making both eyes work at the same time, so that your “visual system” will always remain ON.
A New Age: what is the revolutionary 3D EYE EXAM.
The 3D eye exam, although an evolution of the previous control, marks a considerable turning point with the past, for the same reason that Apple with Iphone has created the category of “smartphones”, not comparable to the old “mobile phones” and Netflix that of “cinema at home” not comparable to Blockbuster’s rental cinema.
What doesn't change
The refraction, or the eye exam with the fitting of various corrective lenses in the phoropter, with the 3D system, remains the same as used in the traditional control.
The 3D eye exam procedure is carried out using a specific TV, an Apple IPad synchronised to an Apple TV.
By eliminating the “mechanicity” of traditional vision control, thanks to 3D images the customer is in ideal visual conditions.
Closing the eye with polarized lenses
During the 3D eye exam, the customer can actually perceive only a few images and only with one eye, even though both are open, avoiding any conditioning.
The 7 advantages of the new eye exam compared to the old one
During the 25 minutes of the 3D exam, the following advantages are guaranteed compared to traditional eye exam:
Refraction takes place under natural conditions and, unlike traditional vision control with the use of the occluder, both eyes can remain open and focused on the image transmitted on the big screen (ideal for people with lazy eyes).
For the first time, without anyone having probably explained it to you before, you will be actively interested because the protagonist of the show will be you.
The risk of incorrect prescription has a very low percentage of failure, because completely natural binocular vision, without the obstruction of the occluder, cancels the risk of activation of the lens, which distorts the technical terms and can cause the values of corrective lenses to vary.
In addition, this situation makes it possible to adjust the choice of lens graduation with greater precision than before, calibrating the image balance of one eye and the other.
The 3D Eye Exam lasts about 1h at a cost of € 97,00.
