What is low-vision?
People with low vision have a reduced ability to see that cannot be fully corrected by surgery, medicine, conventional eyeglasses or contact lenses. This reduced ability may be due to disease or injury.

Eye diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma may make it difficult, or even impossible, to participate in everyday activities such as reading, writing, watching TV or enjoying hobbies.

Child’s eye care health is the dynamic process; different aspects should be looked up for in different age groups for a better eye vision growth. Never ignore as your children’s eye care is a necessary part. The eye vision is not very mush stable in this age and can get more severe. Children should have their first eye exam at 1 year old. If their parents suspects that something is wrong you must consult ophthalmologist can check even earlier. Eye check examination for kids is important because it must have basic visual skills such as:

  • Near vision
  • Distance vision
  • Eye teaming
  • Eye movement
  • Accommodation
  • Peripheral vision
  • Eye-hand coordination

Achieving the best vision possible is more than just an accurate prescription. It’s about individualized lens solutions and how the lenses are placed in the frame and on your patient’s face.

Digital centration systems represent a valuable alternative to standard manual lens centration. The technology behind these digital tools will actively deliver the level of innovation demanded by patients today.

Lens Fitting & Consultation

Manual measurement effectiveness is dependent on the skills of the person conducting the measurement.

Based on constant market feedback and the rise of advanced technology, the second and latest generation of our centration device, the i.Terminal i.e. features the new standards of technology to support the eye care professionals in providing better vision.

Incorporate the latest Crystal Vision Optical lens-fitting innovation in your practice and ensure a personalized lens for each face, frame and prescription. Enjoy additional benefits like streamlining your workflow and growing your share of customised lenses by employing i.Terminal 2 in your consultation process and implement a 21st century standard of care.

Crystal Vision Optical instruments for precise generation of eye profiles and optimal spectacle lens determination.

The correct lenses can only be prescribed when you have enough information about your patient‘s eyes. Let i.Profiler provide you with a detailed visual profile so you can have more answers and fewer questions for your patient.

Optimum visual performance derives from the best cylinder/axis/sphere combinations, which can be determined through both subjective and objective refraction. Enhance your refraction process with the brand-new subjective refraction unit by Crystal Vision Optical for modern vision testing.

With numerous advances throughout the years, we use latest technology in refractive testing.

Crystal Vision Optical instruments are designed to thoroughly examine your patient while providing them with a comfortable and technology-driven experience. The collected data will support you in providing your patient with a prescription that is as individual as their eyes, and different in terms of visual performance.

A visual field test is an examination that may be performed to analyze a patient’s visual field. The exam may be performed by a technician in one of several ways. The test may be performed by a technician directly, with the assistance of a machine, or completely by an automated machine. Machine based tests aid diagnostics by allowing a detailed printout of the patient’s visual field.

Glasses (eyeglasses, spectacles, specs) are frames bearing lenses worn in front of the eyes for vision correction or eye protection. Safety glasses are a kind of eye protection against flying debris or against visible and near visible light or radiation. Sunglasses allow better vision in bright daylight, and may protect against damage from high levels of ultraviolet light. Other types of glasses may be used for viewing visual information (such as stereoscopy) or simply just for aesthetic or fashion values.

Historical types of glasses include the pince-nez, monocle, lorgnette, and scissor or scissors-glasses. Modern glasses are typically supported by pads on the bridge of the nose and by temple arms (sides) placed over the ears. CR-39 lenses are the most common plastic lenses due to their low weight, high scratch resistance, low dispersion, and low transparency to ultraviolet and infrared radiation. Polycarbonate and Trivex lenses are the lightest and most shatter-resistant, making them the best for impact protection.

Eye infections occur when harmful microorganisms — bacteria, fungi and viruses — invade any part of the eyeball or surrounding area. This includes the clear front surface of the eye (cornea) and the thin, moist membrane lining the outer eye and inner eyelids (conjunctiva).

Anytime you suspect an eye infection, you should always visit your eye doctor for an eye exam. Trying to self-diagnose your condition can delay effective treatment and potentially harm your sight.

If you wear contact lenses, you should wear only your eyeglasses until you have visited your eye doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

Causes And Types Of Eye Infections

Examples of viral, fungal and bacterial eye infections include:

  • Pink eye, or conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis, also called “pink eye,” is a common, highly contagious eye infection that often is spread among children in day care centers, classrooms and similar environments. Teachers and day care workers also are at increased risk of pink eye when they work in close quarters with young children.

Common infectious conjunctivitis types often have viral or bacterial origins. Infants also can acquire conjunctival eye infections (gonococcal and chlamydial conjunctivitis) during birth when a mother has a sexually transmitted disease.

  • Other viral eye infections (viral keratitis). Besides common pink eye, other viral eye infections include ocular herpes, which occurs with exposure to the Herpes simplex virus.
  • Fungal keratitis. This type of eye infection made worldwide news in 2006 when a contact lens solution now withdrawn from the market was linked to an outbreak among contact lens wearers.

The fungal eye infection was associated with Fusarium fungi, commonly found in organic matter. This and other fungi can invade the eye in other ways, such as through a penetrating injury caused by a tree branch.
