The most frequent reason for dentists and dental hygienists leaving their job prematurely is pain and injury caused by bad working environment. Fortunately, it does not have to be that way. The solution is optical.
Dental examinations and procedures require precision, and your eyes are your primary instrument. Therefore, many dentists and dental hygienists tend to crouch over the patient to be close enough to see their work. With magnifying dental loupes, you are able to see your precision work from a good and upright working position. A position that spares your body and secures a better, ergonomic, working posture.
All magnifying dental loupes from ExamVision are designed by optometrists and customized to the individual dentist, hygienist or student. Each solution is based on individual eyesight, need for magnification as well as physical working environment such as distance and tools and facilities available in the dental clinic.
Improve your working environment with dental loupes
One of the main benefits of working with magnifying loupes designed for dentists and dental hygienists is an immediate improvement in working posture. Without loupes, dentists and dental hygienists tend to work in crouched, uncomfortable positions that lead to chronic pains in the neck and lower part of back.
By including magnifying dental loupes in your toolbox, your working environment will improve significantly – in the short as well as in the long term.

Loupe magnification for dental precision
A crucial prerequisite for performing modern dental procedure and operation techniques is vision. Of course, eyesight and age are important elements in this – but having the right optical solution, using prescription in both carrier lenses and loupe oculars is vital in order to have a clear vision.
Having the proper level of magnification will help you perform better in all dental examinations and procedures whether you're a dentist, hygienist or student. Therefore, we will always examine your vision and physical working environment before designing your dental loupes. However, in general we recommend these magnifications for dental precision:

Age affects your eyesight
People under 40 years of age very often have close to perfect eyesight, and the eyes are able to adjust to changes quite quickly. Therefore, people within this age-range will have a large depth of field and will rarely need dental loupes with more than 3.0x magnification. If the eyesight is not flawless, both carriers and oculars can be customized with the right prescriptions in order to compensate.
Turning 40, the eyesight will gradually be weakened. To be able to perform dental examinations and procedures, you will need an optical loupe solution to compensate and continue to work with precision. Our magnifying loupes will enforce your actual eyesight but can also be altered to continuous changes in your eyesight. This is very important when choosing the best dental loupe solution for a long career as a dentist or hygienist.
No matter your age and prescription, all our customized dental loupes are designed by optometrists, produced in Denmark and fitted to individual needs and practices by local optical professionals across the world.
