iPad dispensing is a new and exciting way to choose your spectacles and help with lens selection.

Using the iPad we can take photos to allow easy comparisons between different frame models. This is also invaluable to help patients who can’t see themselves clearly in the mirror when trying frames on. We have recently installed onto our iPads a new application developed by the lens manufacturer Hoya.

The app enables the precise measurements to be taken necessary for the high performing free-form lenses. These lenses use the latest manufacturing techniques to improve vision quality in varifocals and single vision lenses.
The measurements taken mean the design of the lens is unique to the chosen frame.  This maximises the useful viewing area, giving increased fields of view and a more natural head position.

This app also demonstrates what it is like to wear different types of lenses and shows the benefits of anti reflection coatings and photochromic lenses
