We care for your eyes

Before we measure the strength of your eye we like to get to know you better. By understanding your lifestyle we can get a clear picture of your vision profile. We explain all the different types of lenses and together we discover which lens solution will be most suitable to you. Of course we measure your prescription during your appointment and give you advice about the styles of frames that match you and your face.

Your vision solution in four steps

  • Discover what
    you need

  • Free eye test to
    determine your strength

  • Assessing your
    eye health

  • 3D photo for optimal
    viewing comfort

1. Discover what you need

We start the appointment with a conversation. We inventorize the kind of job you have and what you like to do in your spare time.  Based on the answers given, we can get a clear picture of your vision profile and which lens solution will be most suitable for you. If you work a lot with computers you might need different lenses than when you spend a lot of time in the car. A water sports enthusiast needs different lenses than a golf player or a cyclist. Sometimes a combination of solutions is best for you, which can also be a combination of lenses and contact lenses.

2: Free eye test to determine your strength

A clear vision starts with a good eyesight test. With our most advanced equipment we determine the strength of your eyes. After the eyesight test we know if you need glasses or contact lenses. You also find out if you are far-sighted, near-sighted or if you need multifocal glasses. This eye test is free.

3: Assessing your eye health

During your eye examination we can determine the health of your eyes. We measure your eye pressure and take a picture of your retina. Such an extensive eye examination costs € 50,- but is free when you buy glasses with prescription lenses in one of our stores. When further examination is needed, we make an appointment with our optometrist who can do an extended eye examination. An optometrist can examine your eyes when you have cataract, dry eyes or glaucoma for instance. They can also refer you to an eye doctor.

4: 3D photo for optimal viewing comfort

To accomplish optimal viewing comfort, we take a 3D photo with our advanced ZEISS Visufit system, to determine the perfect postition of your new lenses in your glasses. Nine synchronized cameras capture a 180° view of your face in a single shot and create an avatar, enabling precise virtual 3D centration of your lenses and the right distance between your pupil and the lens. Do you wear contact lenses? The ZEISS Visufit system makes a scan of your cornea to position your contact lenses for optimal sight in all directions.
