iPad dispensing – giving you the perfect fit

Posted on 21st July 2015

iPads or should that be eyePads, have been an invaluable tool at Cameron Optometry for a number of years now. There have been a several stories about them in the media lately as more optometrists acknowledge the value they can have in a practice.

If you haven’t experienced table dispensing before, it is a fantastic tool to take very accurate digital measurements of your eyes and surrounding area to ensure we find you glasses that fit perfectly. The software can assist our staff in best advising on suitable lenses for your frames, showing you how different lenses would look, for example mocking up how one thickness of lenses would look versus a thinner option or giving you an idea of how each lens coating will look. This helps ensure when your new glasses arrive, they are exactly how you’d imagined, because you’ve already seen them!

In addition, photos can be taken so you can see how you look from various angles, we can email these images to you so you can seek a second option from friends or family. Some are still surprised when we bring out one of our iPads during a glasses fitting but the software we have on them makes for a very smooth dispensing process.

Many practices now use this software and it is a very useful tool but ultimately, it is our staff who are all experts in their field with a vast amount of experience. They are the ones that make the real difference in terms of levels of care and ensuring you go home with the perfect pair.
