Make your day-to-day work easier with an automated lensmeter from ZEISS



Using the ZEISS VISULENS 500 you can speed up the refraction and prescription processes.

The ZEISS VISULENS 500 is equipped with a green measurement LED. It allows you to precisely determine the power of the entire set of different lens materials and designs without the need to adjust the Abbe number. This benefit will add speed as well as reliability to your examination process. In addition, ZEISS VISULENS 500 features an advanced UV transmission measurement system using four different wavelengths (365, 375, 395, 405 nm). The result: increased confidence for your patient and more upselling support for you.
