What to Look for When Investing in New Optical Instruments

17 March 2021

Our goal is to provide you with the equipment and services necessary to meet your business needs.
At Essilor, our mission is to improve lives by improving sight, and we hope to achieve this by providing optical solutions that meet new vision challenges across the world. With over 150 years of experience in manufacturing lenses and optical instruments, Essilor has won 5 Silmo d’Or prizes in recent years.
 
Optical instruments from Essilor are the result of more than 20 research partnerships with universities and public research organisations, along with cutting edge technology and innovative thinking. This has resulted in a range of instruments including visual screening tools, as well as diagnostic and imaging equipment.
 
If you are an optometrist looking for a way to enhance your practice and deliver unparalleled patient care, here are just some of the things to look out for when investing in new optical equipment.
 

Technology and support

 
Founded in 1972, Essilor has been committed to providing effective solutions for independent opticians. We offer a diverse range of optical instruments to assist with all aspects of eye care, from pre-test instruments to dispensing tools.
 
Ensuring each optician has access to technology that can improve eye care, Essilor optical instruments are designed to help with visual acuity assessments, eye disease screening and other essential tools. In recent years we have launched instruments that are at the very forefront of the industry, reinventing the eye examination process to benefit both you as an eye care professional and your patients.
 
Our goal is to provide you with the equipment and services necessary to meet your business needs, as well as building trust and long-term relationships with patients. With additional support on hand to help you get the most out of your instruments, we’re here to help independent opticians grow their practice.
 

Commitment to research and development

 
Meeting the vast range of visual health needs is most certainly a challenge, but it’s one that we have taken steps to ensure success. Our research partnerships are designed to help support ophthalmic research, with organisations including the Vision Institute in Paris. We also have special teams to help with personalised solutions for those with complex vision problems, with lenses that cater to severe prescriptions.
 
From lenses and lens treatments, to diagnostic equipment, the team at Essilor are committed to research and development to bring you instruments at the forefront of the industry. Over the years we have introduced cutting edge instruments that transform the way eye care professionals carry out their services, resulting in a more efficient practice and higher patient satisfaction.
 

Accuracy and comfort

 
When investing in new optical instruments, innovation and development are hugely important, but it’s also key to consider the features of the instruments and their impact on your practice. Essilor instruments have begun to incorporate state-of-the-art features that can transform the way you run your practice.
 
Many of our instruments now include automated functions, which can make a huge difference in the accuracy and comfort of your eye care services. Automated instruments not only remove room for human error, but they can speed up the eye examination process to allow for better efficiency and reduce patient fatigue.
