Good ergonomics are a crucial prerequisite for a long, enjoyable and healthy working life. Magnifying ergonomic loupes from ExamVision will help you achieve improved posture, physical wellbeing and allow you to perform at your best.
Magnifying loupes help improve your ergonomic work position significantly. Longer working distances place greater demand on your vision and without optical loupes, many professionals tend to work in crouched, uncomfortable positions that will lead to chronic lower back and neck pain. Magnifying ergonomic loupes offer the solution while at the same time providing a safety distance between you and your patient as a personal protective measure. Ergonomic loupes for dentists, surgeons and others will help you achieve a better posture and adding magnification to your work routine will allow you to perform professionally without compromising on your own body, protection and work environment.

More than ever, equipment for personal protection and safety are essential while performing dental and medical examinations and procedures. Maintaining a physical safety distance can very often prove difficult as you will need to get very close to the patients to see details properly. By adding a customised loupe to your daily work-routine, you will not only achieve an optimal, ergonomic working position but also increase the safety distance between your face and your patient significantly. Loupe magnification will allow you to perform dental and medical procedures with maximum working distance for your personal protection. Now, more than ever, ergonomics and safety go hand in hand.
Additional equipment for personal protection can be added with our lightweight, extra-large, full-face shield, the Visionshield MAX. which protects your face and loupes from splashes, spray and respiratory droplets. Read more about our personal protective measures here.

Dentists and medical specialists generally purchase magnifying loupes for two reasons: to enhance visual acuity and treatment quality and to improve working posture and comfort. There are three essential, ergonomic factors to consider when looking for the right loupe:
It´s the distance from the eyes to the work area. The right working distance is very important to avoid crouched, uncomfortable positions that will lead to chronic lower back and neck pain. A discrepancy of just a couple of cm can have a significant impact on comfort and health. When purchasing ExamVision loupes the working distance will always be individually measured and fitted to your height and work tools to achieve perfect results.
It´s the angle that your eyes are inclined downward toward the work area. This angle should be steep enough to help you attain a comfortable working position with minimal forward head posture (20° or less). The farther the head is positioned forward to see through the loupes, the greater the strain on the neck. The correct angle is individual, as it depends on the face, frame, nose bridge height and other variables. Your ExamVision dealer always measures the declination angle individually.
The Prisma Lens System™ allows you to sit up straighter and achieve a better working posture by making the focus of your vision appear higher than it really is. Prisma Lens system™ is optional. We can build it into your magnifying loupes at your request. It works by making light bend so that you can work in an upright position, which can be beneficial for very tall people or those who suffer from serious neck or back problems.
All ExamVision frames are designed for loupes and made to fit all kinds of facial shapes (narrow, broad and Asian). This means that the scope can be placed low to achieve the correct angle and the correct, individual pupil distance. When choosing ExamVision as your ergonomic loupe supplier you will of course receive expert advice on how to choose the right loupe frame and magnification to fit your features and work environment.
Long periods of static posture can cause pain all manner of health-related issues. Committing to regular breaks and stretching exercises is health-beneficial and only takes a minute or two at a time. Moreover, regular breaks are proven to contribute to greater focus and productivity.
