Now you might ask why we want to even take digital measurements for things that we already do so well like PD and height? Here are a few of my own reasons. First, better fitting heights – did you know that height changes are reason for most progressive lens redo's. Shouldn't we want a way that measures where the patient is actually reading?
The best of digital lenses are better with personalized measurements, Patients notice, "No one's ever done this before". They help determine the opportunity for digital lenses.
A request for only a PD, for online eyewear, makes just an adequate pair of glasses, 5 measurements makes great eyewear and separates you from the competition
Our objectives are:
- Understand how 5 lens measurements can make better eyewear.
- Then, Learn how to efficiently capture a set of digital measurements.
- Know how to describe the entire digital, eyewear measuring, experience.
