Which magnification power should I choose for my loupes?
Your magnification level will be unique to you and you alone, but there are a few guidelines you can follow to find a power that works for you. Loupes can vary from 2.5x-8.0x, and the learning curve will become more challenging as the magnification level increases. Of course, the higher the magnification the more detail you will see. For first-timers, dental hygiene examinations, preventive care, and other general oral procedures, a lower loupe magnification from 2.3x to 3.5x will often be sufficient. If your working distance (WD) is 15” or less, choosing a 2.5x for your first pair of loupes will work just fine. If you'd like to better understand how we determine this process, please reach out to one of our talented Loupes Specialists for more information.
Can I wear a laser or x-ray filter with my loupes?
Yes! We recommend using Ease-In-Shields. They are simple, comprehensive, easy, and work effectively with your loupes and prescriptive eyewear.
Are loupes safe?
Yes! Not only do they improve your work and the speed at which you can complete it, they also help to reduce strain on the eyes, and encourage better focus and hand-eye coordination. The right loupes (like our ErgoPrism Varios) also help to provide improved posture and reduce the risk of neck and musculoskeletal pain.
Can I add a camera to my loupes?
Yes! Please reach out to our Solutions Team for more information.
Do loupes weaken my eyesight?
No. There is no evidence that loupes weaken eyesight. When used properly, loupes should not have any negative effects on your eyes.
Do all loupes use the same standard for measuring degree of magnification?
No, not all loupes are created equal. Each magnification will vary depending on the brand. Some may be the same, or similar, but there's no guarantee that the magnifications will match from one brand to another perfectly.
How can I order custom-made loupes online without a Sales Rep?
The process is actually very simple! After placing your order, we'll send you an ErgoFit Kit to collect what we need.
