Zeiss i.Terminal

Cary TownOptical AboutUsTerminal Services Carytown Optical now had the i.Terminal by Zeiss optical, a very sophisticated piece of equipment made by the world leader in optics. Zeiss is German company that invented anti-reflective coating and known all over the world for more than a century for their precision optics, research and development. They make the finest in binoculars, camera lenses and telescopes.

Experience vision through a multifocal you never thought possible in a pair of Zeiss lenses. Many customers of mine describe them as “HD eye glasses”. Others have said that they are a multifocal that feels like a single vision lens. They are truly the leader in optics. The i.Terminal takes a picture of the customer wearing the frame for precise measurements of the pupil distance and height of the pupil for progressive multifocal lenses. The eye terminal also measures the distance for the frame to the eye as well as the pantoscopic tilt (inward angle). This allows for precise mathematical calculations of the prescription based on the frame and its fit and placement on your face. Inaccurate measurements are often the cause of a person not being able to comfortably wear their progressive multifocal lenses. The i.Terminal measures to a tenth of a millimeter! I am really excited to have this technology available to the customers of Carytown Optical.
