An All-Rounded Eye Care Experience With Essilor


Eye health has always been a major concern in Asia, especially so in Singapore. With the increase use of smart devices, myopia becomes a prevailing condition. Studies in the United States have revealed that our usual reading distance of 40cm has become drastically shorter at 33.8cm, causing severe eye strain, leading to myopia at a tender age.

Videre means ‘to see’ in Spanish. As a vision boutique, Videre offers professional eye examination using state-of-art machinery to crafting the best eyewear or contacts, irregardless of short-nearsightedness or far-farsightedness and all-rounded solutions to its customers. In this partnership with leading ophthalmic optics company, Essilor, state-of-the-art machines have been brought in to detect the early onslaught of myopia, presbyopia and overall eye health in just 90 seconds.

Being the first in Asia, is able to store any patient’s comprehensive test results in a single portal. Starting off with a questionnaire to better understand a patient’s lifestyle habits, the entire eye examination is able to detect any early onset of degenerative eye conditions such as retinal detachment, cataracts, macular degeneration and glaucoma. Every customer begins their journey at Videre with a personalised card bearing their details. Placing the card on the card reader saves the data from the various eye tests automatically, allowing an accurate monitoring for future eye readings.

Precise refraction with the Vision-R 800 phoropter

Phoropters used to be a hassle affair where customers had to wear it on the face and walk around with it to see how accurate the final results are. With every change of the lens, prescriptions have always increased in 0.25D each time. However, with the Vision-R™ 800 phoropter, smooth power changes and a wider field of vision makes refraction comfortable and precise down to a 0.01D reading. Getting an accurate eye reading becomes possible thanks to its “Smart Test” function which uses unique algorithms. No more getting headaches from wearing an ill-suited pair of lens.

7-in-1 measurement solution with the Wam700

Essilor’s Wave Analyzer Medica 700+ is an instrument combining 7 functions which stimulates different light conditions, allowing the patient to understand the impact different environments can cause. A simplified screening including testing for glaucoma, cataracts and corneal abnormalities. The best thing about it? It takes just 90 seconds! The Cornea 550 maps the curvature of the corneal surface, providing suitability for Orthokeratology lenses (lens that temporary reshape the eyes while you sleep), and assessing dry eyes. The Retina 550 provides high definition images of the retina, allowing the practitioner to detect any early signs of abnormalities.

Getting lenses is similar to getting a set of tailored clothes. Visioffice 2 takes precise measurements of the shape, size, curve, tilt, and fit of a patient’s frame to get a 3D construction of the eyes lens system. Enhancing the customer experience with the best frames and educating on the various lens benefits with demonstrations makes it an interactive process. Receive further information with the guided, educational and personalized ‘Vision Studio’ which offers a wide array of lens solution to allow patients to see well.
