  • Frames

    The Galilean Essential loupe goes well with the Essential Metro frame, but you can mix and match with any frame from the ExamVision frame range. 

    ExamVision frames are lightweight, made from high-end materials and most importantly, they offer an exceptional balance, are durable, stable and don't deform.

  • Prisma Lens System

    The Prisma Lens System can help you achieve a better ergonomic working posture. The prism in the loupe refracts light, making an image appear higher than it really is. This can be beneficial for very tall people or those who suffer from serious neck and back problems. However, the prism disperses the light thereby decreasing the optical quality/clarity slightly. Therefore the Prisma Lens System does not come as standard in ExamVision loupes. We strive for perfection, and will only recommend Prisma Lens System to those who will benefit from it.

  • Hardened carrier lenses as standard

    The carrier lenses are upgraded with anti-reflective and superior scratch-resistant coatings and with a high abrasion resistance.

  • Improved coating and filters in both carriers and oculars

    With your Galilean Essential loupe, you get an improved coating that is much more scratch-resistant than basic and standard coatings. Built-in anti-reflection provides greater comfort and sharpness of vision and filters 99% of harmful ultra-violet light. It also repels dust and smudges, reducing the amount of cleaning necessary. 

  • Vision+Lens Protection (VLP)

    An improved coating that is much more scratch-resistant than basic and standard coatings. Built-in anti-reflection provides greater comfort and sharpness of vision and filters 99% of harmful ultra-violet light. It also repels dust and smudges, reducing the amount of cleaning necessary.

  • Comprehensive warranty

    Galilean Essential loupes are covered by a 5-year warranty, which gives you peace of mind. (Soft parts such as nose pads and temple tips are not covered, as these are treated as ‘consumable’ parts and need to be replaced as they wear.)
