According to the different ways of wearing dental magnifiers, they can be divided into head-mounted and eyeglass types. The eyeglass type can be further divided into TTL (Through The Lens) and flip-up styles. The former has the objective lens of the binoculars passing through the supporting lenses (usually referring to the eyeglasses), while the latter is fixed at the front end of the eyeglasses in a hinged manner and can be flipped up and down. According to the different optical principles of dental magnifiers, they can be divided into Galilean and Keplerian types. Galilean dental magnifiers are small in size, with a magnification generally of 2.5x (up to 3.2x for larger ones). Due to their special optical characteristics, the edge images may be distorted, so it is not recommended to use Galilean dental magnifiers with a magnification exceeding 2.8x. They are usually custom-made, with non-adjustable interpupillary distance and dedicated use. Keplerian dental magnifiers, also known as prism magnifiers, can provide a magnification of 3.2 to 8 times and can obtain clear edge images, with adjustable interpupillary distance.
Medical magnifiers can not only magnify the vision of doctors and technicians during medical procedures, but also help ensure the correct posture and reduce neck and eye fatigue. The use of magnifiers improves patient care and increases the comfort level of medical staff.
The tilt angle of the magnifier is the angle between the reference line connecting the top of the ear (position of the frame support) and the corner of the eye and the axis of the magnifier eye. Experts recommend that the tilt angle of dental eye loupes should be equal to the angle at which the eyes rotate downward. It helps to view the target in the position of the operating hand. A large downward tilt angle can cause eye fatigue. On the other hand, a small angle forces the operator to adopt an incorrect posture. dental eye loupes are small, lightweight, and portable. When choosing a new magnifier, the weight of the magnifier is an important factor to consider, especially if the magnifier will be used for a longer time. The purpose of dental magnifiers is to improve visual sensitivity through magnification, which not only makes dental operations more accurate, but also helps doctors to improve their posture to some extent during oral diagnosis and treatment.
As a dental professional, your work is reflected in every smile that comes out of the clinic. Dental care requires effective visualization, unique skills, and accuracy, which may easily lead to unnatural body postures over a long period of time. Our custom-made dental magnifiers and lamps enable you to use effective visualization to observe things that are invisible.
