Advanced Testing and Accuracy with R800

When you have a sight test with the R800, the examination includes health checks and refraction. Refraction is the part of the test that reveals any changes in your eyes and determines if your vision could be enhanced with glasses.

Standard refraction

In today’s world an optometrist carries out the refraction process and as part of this you will be shown different lenses and asked which ones make your vision clearest. The results are reliant on your answers that then determine your prescription. The unit in which your prescription is issued is in the dioptre and the current industry standard is to provide your prescription in 0.25 steps. It has never before been possible to measure you for more precise lenses, manufactured to your accurate prescription. Until now.

Refraction reinvented – you choose

Today’s vision correction standards have been used for 100 years until Essilor, the clever company behind Varilux, Crizal, Transitions and Eyezen lenses challenged these standards and in doing so, has invented breakthrough technology that tailors the eye examination to your individual needs, making subjective refraction in increments of 0.25 dioptres a thing of the past.

Advanced Vision Accuracy (AVA)

Thanks to Essilor, we have invested in the very latest eye testing equipment called Vision-R 800 that completely transforms your experience. The Vision-R 800 features a Smart Tests algorithm. This helps us conduct your refraction to give you an ultra-precise prescription to 0.01 dioptres. We can even demonstrate your new prescription with a fascinating simulation experience so you can see exactly what you have been missing.

We think that an eye test that measured to an incredible 0.01 dioptres is an amazing breakthrough but it does not stop there. We can now make your lenses to match your super precise prescription and you can choose from a range of premium advanced lenses – including all the best digitally manufactured Varilux designs and Eyezen single vision lenses.

Who can have the AVA experience?

Everyone, adults and kids alike. It is a great process, very comfortable and less tiring than the traditional method. It has the added benefit that you are able to experience your new prescription in real time.

You then choose which lens design you want, select your frame and you will benefit from high precision vision with you AVA lenses in no time.

Did you know?

An Essilor study shows that 95% of the population have more sensitive vision than the current correction steps of

0.25 dioptre*.

We are one of a small number of opticians in the UK

and Ireland to have invested in this technology, which is exclusive to independent opticians.

Other opticians will only dispense on 0.25 dioptres so don’t compromise, get your AVA lenses now and discover the exceptional vision you deserve.
