Foreword
Good vision – with or without an optical aid – is now
becoming more and more important in our everyday
lives, regardless of whether we are at work or enjoying
a hobby in our leisure time. However, there are certain
tasks or degrees of visual deficiency which demand
special solutions beyond the capabilities of such traditional visual aids as spectacles or contact lenses.
Carl Zeiss Vision has been involved in the field of
“Special Visual Aids” for several decades now. In 1908
the company presented the first telescopic spectacles
for severely short-sighted wearers which Moritz von
Rohr had designed on the basis of Gullstrand‘s theory
of image formation. This was followed by a large
number of innovative magnifying visual aids.
Today, Carl Zeiss Vision offers an extensive range of
magnifying visual devices. The information provided in
the catalogue is intended to assist you in your practical
work. In the blue section the products are presented
with their technical and optical data. Prices are given
in the green section.
In every magnifying visual aid which the company produces, Carl Zeiss Vision attaches top priority to providing
the wearer with a product which is precisely tailored
to meet the needs of the task or situation concerned or,
in the case of low vision aids for people with severe
visual handicaps, with a product which ensures that
maximum visual performance is achieved. This means:
outstanding image quality and a large field of view at
the same time. Often the lowest possible magnification
will then suffice.
Certification to ISO 9000 testifies to the high standard
of quality achieved by Carl Zeiss Vision – from product
development to customer care. This includes a wide
range of seminars and courses, in which the prescription and fitting of magnifying optical aids are
20-696 e-III/2009
explained.
The information contained in this catalogue is intended
to assist you in your everyday work. Each section includes a general introduction to the products available
from Carl Zeiss Vision. Technical and optical information is given in the description of the product involved.

Background Information
Optimum matching of refracting
power and diameter
The size of the field of view is of decisive importance
for the practical benefits offered by a visual aid. If
possible, the user must be able to see his entire field of
action. In the magnifiers produced by Carl Zeiss Vision,
the optically effective diameter of each magnifier is
optimally adapted to its refracting power.
Image quality
Uncompromising image quality is essential if all details
are to recognized and the magnification is not to be
unnecessarily high. The use of the aid is also considerably simplified, as the size of the field of view, the
depth of focus and working distances all remain comfortable for the wearer.
The optics of the hand magnifiers are aspherically
designed and, with full utilization of the magnifying
power, provide optimum image quality. The pocket
magnifiers are multilens systems which guarantee a
distortion-free image with no chromatic aberrations.
Aspheric hand magnifiers with
hard protective and multilayer
AR coatings
The lenses of the aspheric hand magnifiers are made of
the material PMMA. To protect the surfaces against
mechanical damage, they are always delivered with a
hard protective coating. The additional broadband
antireflection coating ensures maximum reduction of
reflections. This is available for the VisuLook classic
20-696 e-III/2009
hand magnifiers.

Backround Information
Antireflection coating for
pocket magnifiers
The lenses of the pocket magnifiers are made of a glass
material. Surface reflections are substantially reduced
by the standard antireflection coating.
Practical labelling
The magnification of a magnifier is dependent on various factors present during use, including the using
distances (distance between the magnifier and the eye,
and that between the magnifier and the object). All
magnifiers from Carl Zeiss Vision are therefore labelled
20-696 e-III/2009
with their refracting power.

Aplanatic-achromatic
Pocket Magnifiers
Aplanatic-achromatic pocket magnifiers from Carl Zeiss
Vision are indispensable aids for many tasks – particularly in industry, research and the skilled trades –
where precise vision is of the essence. Their small
dimensions also make them useful for persons with
severe visual handicaps, e.g. for use when out and
about.
The aplanatic-achromatic pocket magnifiers are labelled with their refracting power (D), which can be used
to calculate the respective magnification on the basis
of the conditions of use.
These magnifiers provide a distortion-free image
without chromatic aberration over the entire field of
view. The product range includes the refracting powers
24 D and 40 D, and a double pocket magnifier 12 D +
24 D = 36 D.
The lenses come standard with an antireflection
20-696 e-III/2009
coating.

VisuLook Style
Aspheric Hand Magnifiers
Many of the tasks we perform in our daily work or
hobbies require precise, detailed vision. This is often
made easier by the use of hand magnifiers.
The “VisuLook style” product line from Carl Zeiss Vision
contains three hand magnifiers featuring a modern
design.
The magnifiers are graded according to their dioptric
power. Their aspheric optics are adapted to the
respective conditions of use. The hand magnifiers
image the viewed object at a distance of 40 cm from
the eye (position of the virtual image). This allows
the image to be clearly seen with the normal near
correction.
The hand magnifiers come standard with a hard
protective coating.
The end of the magnifier handle features a pull-out
20-696 e-III/2009
eyelet through which a neck cord can be threaded.

VisuLight M
Illuminated Pocket Magnifiers
Illuminated magnifiers are used for applications in
which magnification and illumination are required in
combination. The use of the right illumination allows
considerable reduction of the magnification needed.
The VisuLight M illuminated pocket magnifiers are
intended primarily for fast use in the home environment: short-time reading of small print, looking for
telephone numbers, etc. And they are also the perfect
companions for use as a reading aid when you are
out and about.
The magnifiers are graded according to their dioptric
powers. Their aspheric optics are adapted to the
respective conditions of use. The illuminated pocket
magnifiers image the viewed object at a distance of
40 cm from the eye (position of the virtual image).
This means the image can be clearly seen with the
normal near correction.
The lenses of the VisuLight M come standard with
a hard protective coating.
The illumination is provided via LED illumination,
whose life cycle is so long that there is no need
20-696 e-III/2009
to change the LED.

VisuLight S
Illuminated Stand Magnifiers
Illuminated magnifiers are used for applications in
which magnification and illumination are required in
combination. The use of the right illumination allows
considerable reduction of the magnification needed.
The VisuLight S illuminated stand magnifiers are
intended primarily for home use. The magnifier lies
on top of the reading material, making it suitable for
long periods of use. Illuminated stand magnifiers are
particularly beneficial for users who cannot hold the
magnifier steady due to hand tremor.
The magnifiers are graded according to their dioptric
powers. Their aspheric optics are adapted to the
respective conditions of use. The illuminated stand
magnifiers image the viewed object at a distance of
40 cm from the eye (position of the virtual image). This
means the image can be clearly seen with the normal
near correction.
The lenses of VisuLight S come standard with a hard
protective coating. The illumination is provided via
LED illumination, whose life cycle is so long that there
is no need to change the LED.
The VisuLight S D 8 H – with a rectangular lens frame
– features an additional, swing-in magnification of 4 D
for reading small print. In the VisuLight S D 12 H and D
16 H a reading line can be swung into position, allow-

Background Information
Magnifying Bifocals S 25,
R 22 and R 20
Magnifying spectacles are glasses with lenses which
display a high positive refracting power. The higher the
dioptric power, the smaller the working distance becomes. Magnifying bifocals from Carl Zeiss Vision allow
the wearer to perform work and read at close range by
looking through the magnifying portion. The distance
portion is used for orientation in the surrounding area.
The correction of the wearer's ametropia is effective in
both the base lens and the magnifying portion (except
for Magnifying Bifocal R 20).
Telescopic Spectacles,
Teleloupe Spectacles
Telescopic spectacles are used to recognize objects
outside the zone of near vision. They are available in
both Galilean and Kepler designs. Kepler systems allow
higher magnifications; Galilean systems permit a more
compact design.
The attachment of a loupe turns telescopic spectacles
into “teleloupe” spectacles for use in near vision. The
benefit of teleloupe spectacles over magnifying spectacles is their markedly larger working distance in the
near range.
Optimized fields of view
The size of the field of view is decisive for the practical
usefulness of the visual aid. Large angular fields improve, for example, the flow of reading and reduce, or
prevent, the head movements otherwise required for
watching TV, for example. Telescopic spectacles from
Carl Zeiss Vision therefore provide a maximum field
of view tailored to meet the needs of the situation
20-690 e-III/2009
involved.

Background Information
Image quality
The high image quality of the telescopic systems
from Carl Zeiss Vision is essential for ensuring that
the lowest possible magnification can be used. This
markedly simplifies the handling of the system, as
the size of the field of view, the depth of focus and the
working distances remain comfortable for the wearer.
System-inherent correction
To ensure that the wearer's remaining visual acuity can
be optimally utilized, any existing ametropia must be
corrected. At Carl Zeiss Vision, this correction is performed by the individually matched combination of the
optical components inside the telescope. The corneal
vertex distance therefore remains constant. This has
two benefits:
1. The components inside the telescope which correct
ametropia are optimally matched to the system
optics in the optical computation.
2. The corneal vertex distance is identical for emmetropes and ametropes, as no additional components are
attached to the ocular on the side nearer to the eye.
This is the only way of ensuring that the position of
the exit pupil of the telescope and that of the entrance pupil of the eye coincide in every fitting.
Unlike a corrective spectacle lens mounted on the
ocular side, the system-inherent correction of ametropia influences neither image quality nor the size of
the field of view. The Rx powers can be changed to
20-690 e-III/2009
meet the needs of each individual patient at any time.

Background Information
Modular design
Generally, a telescope for an LVA patient must be
focused at a finite distance, e.g. the customary distance
between the wearer and a TV set. This is perfomed by
Carl Zeiss Vision to your specifications. An additional
clip-on lens is not required, therefore simplifying the
use of the system. If the requirements change, the
focusing system can be changed by Carl Zeiss Vision at
any time.
Usable for far and near
Clip-on lenses turn telescopic spectacles into teleloupe
spectacles. This makes the telescope systems very
flexible for use in the distance, intermediate and near
ranges.
Light-coloured housing
Telescope systems with light-coloured housings are
less conspicuous for the patient during use and are
therefore more pleasant to wear. The cosmetic benefit
of the bright colour also helps to increase wearer
acceptance.
Bridge
Telescopic spectacles must be very carefully centred. In
binocular systems, the optical axes must be exactly
aligned with each other to guarantee perfect fusion of
monocular images. Carl Zeiss Vision therefore fits
Kepler-type binocular telescope and teleloupe systems
with fixed bridge connections. However, this is not
done until the systems have been exactly adjusted and
aligned on an optical bench. This permanent alignment
20-690 e-III/2009
also withstands external mechanical influences (shock
or distortion of front of frame).

Background Information
Centration data
The image quality and field of view of a telescope
system can only be fully utilized if it has been
correctly positioned relative to the eye. Two basic
centration requirements must therefore be met:
• the ”centre-of-rotation“ requirement
• the correct position of the apertures
(exit pupil of system/entrance pupil of wearer).
Centre-of-rotation requirement
The optical axis of the telescope system and the line of
fixation of the eye must correspond in the principal
visual direction. Carl Zeiss Vision mounts the telescope
systems perpendicularly to the frame plane. The front
of the system carrier must therefore be inclined perpendicularly to the principal visual direction (Figs. 1
and 2).

Background Information
If the ideal inclination is not possible for anatomical or
other reasons, the alternative is telescopic spectacles
with inclinable optics (not possible with Telescopic
Spectacles G 1.8 for mechanical reasons). In this case,
the telescope system is fitted with an ocular ring which
is rounded on the outside. This allows the system to be
inclined as required in the drilled hole of the carrier
lens and then locked in position with appropriate adhesives after the ideal inclination has been determined.
The eye's line of fixation and the system axis must cor-
Fig. 3
respond, irrespective of the forward tilt of the system
carrier (Figs. 3 and 4).
Correct position of the apertures
The position of the exit pupil of the telescope must be
congruent with the entrance pupil of the eye. The corneal vertex distance between the ocular and the eye
must not be dependent on the fitting of the system carrier. The mounting height in the carrier lens is therefore adapted by Carl Zeiss Vision to the corneal vertex
distance given in the order. This, along with the systeminherent correction, guarantees that the two important
Fig. 4
apertures are congruent (Fig. 5).

Background Information
Order data
Carl Zeiss Vision requires the following data for the
production of telescopic or teleloupe spectacles:
1. Position of principal visual point (centration in
accordance with the centre-of-rotation requirement)
1.1 PD for distance vision (also required for binocular
systems used for near vision, as the nasal inset for
near vision is calculated by Carl Zeiss Vision in each
case)
1.2 Viewing height
2. Corneal vertex distance: corneal vertex – lens vertex on object side
3. Distance correction
4. Using distance for far (not required for Telescopic
Spectacles K 4 vario or for binocular systems for
near vision).
Production
Special tools and devices are required to complete,
align and insert the telescope systems. This is why this
work is performed at Carl Zeiss Vision in line with the
data you have specified in your order. The telescope
systems are inserted in plano carrier lenses made of
20-690 e-III/2009

Telescopic Spectacles G 1.8
Telescopic system with a Galilean design and magnification of 1.8x, convertible to a ”teleloupe“ system by
the attachment of clip-on lenses on the object side for
near vision.
The Telescopic Spectacles G 1.8 are used monocularly
or binocularly by persons with low vision in order to
magnify objects in the distance to such an extent that
they become visible again. The object-side attachment
of clip-on lenses turns the telescopic system into a
”teleloupe“ system. The appropriate magnification
makes it possible for the user to identify close-up
objects and to read standard print sizes. Due to the
parallel position of the telescope systems, only monocular use is possible in near vision. The other lens is
covered with a frosted clip-on lens.
For mounting reasons, the distance between the principal visual point and rim of the frame must not be less
20-690 e-III/2009
than 17 mm.

Telescopic Spectacles G 2.2
The Telescopic Spectacles G 2.2 feature one or two
Galilean telescope systems either monocularly or binocularly. The magnification for distance vision is 2.2x.
Together with the inconspicuous light grey colour of
the housing, the large field of view provided by the
coated optics ensures a high level of acceptance of the
system by persons with low vision.
Object-side clip-on lenses increase the range of possible applications, allowing the Telescopic Spectacles
G 2.2 to be used for distance, intermediate and near
vision.
With the appropriate magnification, the recognition of
near objects and the reading of standard print sizes are
once again possible. Due to the parallel position of the
telescope systems, only monocular use is possible for
near vision. The other lens is covered with a frosted
clip-on lens.
For mounting reasons, the distance between the principal visual point and the rim of the frame must be less
20-690 e-III/2009
than 13 mm.

Telescopic Spectacles K 4
The Telescopic Spectacles K 4 are fitted monocularly
with a Kepler-type telescope system featuring a magnification of 4x for distance vision.
They have been designed to help people with low
vision to recognize objects in the distance.
By the attachment of clip-on lenses on the object side,
the telescope system can be converted to a ”teleloupe“
system for use at intermediate distances and/or for
near vision. This allows the low vision wearer to recognize objects at close range and to read standard print
sizes. A swivel mechanism of the clip-on lenses allows
the wearer to switch rapidly from distance to near
vision, and double clip-on lenses permit one or two
lenses to be swung quickly into position.
For mounting reasons, the distance between the principal visual point and the rim of the frame must not be
20-690 e-III/2009
less than 13 mm.

Telescopic Spectacles K 4 vario
The Telescopic Spectacles K 4 vario are fitted monocularly with a Kepler-type telescope system with a magnification of 4x for distance vision. The system can be
set from distance to near vision by appropriately
turning the objective lens.
The Telescopic Spectacles K 4 vario can be optionally
fitted with a locking ring which serves as an objective
stop for the largest object distance requested by the
wearer. It can be attached in any position on the system housing using a pin screw.
The teleloupe magnification for near vision totals a
maximum of 8x (with correction of 0.0 D). This near
magnification can be increased to 10x by the attachment of a clip-on lens.
Persons with low vision can use the K 4 vario Telescopic
Spectacles to recognize objects in the distance, at
intermediate distances and in the close-up range.
For mounting reasons, the distance between the principal
visual point and the rim of the frame must not be less
20-690 e-III/2009
than 13 mm.

STMS™ System Carrier
for Magnifying Visual Devices
The outstanding features of the STMS™ System Carrier
include its attractive design and modern material. The
use of pure titanium guarantees not only a low weight,
but also optimum skin compatibility, and therefore
plays a decisive role in increasing wearing comfort.
The single-component bridge element ensures that the
front part of the frame is torsion-free and makes the
system carrier dimensionally stable.
The time-tested silicone saddle bridge guarantees a
good, secure fit of the STMS™ System Carrier. However, it can also be fitted with individual, comfortable
soft pads. The temples are available in a hook-type
version or a straight version with an elastic rear head-

System Carrier LV basic
for Magnifying Visual Devices
The system carrier LV basic is specially adapted to the
requirements resulting from the fitting of telescopic or

The ideal distribution of pressure in the nose area is
achieved by a soft bridge component. Along with the largely distortion-free front of the frame, special Marvel
temples ensure a comfortable, secure fit. The mattfinished surface is palladium-plated and does not
therefore release nickel.
The wide range of sizes available allows exact adapta-

Small monocular telescopes can give people with a
severe visual handicap greater mobility outdoors.
Depending on the magnification required, three models
from the extensive range of binoculars from Carl Zeiss
are particularly suitable.
Continuous focusing from the distance into the near
range offers outstanding flexibility of use, e.g. for reading railway timetables and road signs or for windowshopping.
Their compact dimensions make the telescopes easy to
carry around and inconspicuous to use.
Large fields of view and coated optics ensure that the
user can make optimum use of his or her remaining
20-690 e-III/2009
visual acuity.

Background Information
Optimized fields of view
The size of the field of view is of crucial significance for
the practical usefulness of a visual aid. The user must be
able to view his field of action in its entirety. The teleloupe spectacles and head-worn loupes from Carl Zeiss
Vision have therefore been designed to provide an optimally large field of view.
Image quality
Uncompromisingly high image quality is vital for
making all details visible and for ensuring that the
magnification must not be unnecessarily high. This
makes it considerably easier to handle the visual aid, as
the size of the field of view, the depth of focus and the
working distances all remain within comfortable pro-
20-692 e-III/2009
portions.

Background Information
Correction of ametropia
To provide the user of a magnifying visual aid with the
best possible visual quality, it is important to correct
his or her ametropia. In products from Carl Zeiss Vision,
the wearer's prescription can either be integrated with
a spectacle lens, or he can wear his own spectacles
while using the aid. The KF and KS Head-worn Loupes
are therefore provided with special high-eyepoint eyepieces for spectacle-wearers. The result: the field of
view is the same size, regardless of whether the loupe
is worn with or without prescription spectacles.
Working distances
Nowadays, major importance is attached to ergonomics. The working distances in the products offered by
Carl Zeiss Vision therefore meet the various requirements resulting from the respective field of application
and its individual parameters.
Bridge in Head-worn Loupes
KF and KS
Binocular optical systems with a Kepler design from
Carl Zeiss Vision all feature a fixed bridge. This ensures
exact alignment of the optical axes of the two systems.
This is the only way of ensuring problem-free binocular
vision.
LED illumination
for head-worn loupes
An additional coaxial, LED illumination system ideally
illuminates the field of view – even in difficult light
conditions, e.g. in dentistry. The light is always in exactThe coaxial illumination beam path allows cavities to
be illuminated without shadow.

Teleloupe Spectacles GTX
The Teleloupe Spectacles GTX are head-worn loupes
which must be fitted for each individual wearer by an
eyecare professional. They are used for binocular,
stereoscopic near vision in medicine and technology.
The teleloupe systems with a Galilean design feature a
2x or 2.5x magnification and are each available with
various working distances.
The systems are contained in mounting rings which are
cemented onto glass or plastic eyeglass lenses featuring any prescription.
The carrier lenses can be inserted in any sturdy spectacle frame with good fitting properties. The small size of
the systems allows good orientation to the surrounding
field.
The Teleloupe Spectacles GTX can be equipped with the
Saphiro LED illumination. This allows an ideal, very easy
combination of magnification and illumination.
For cementing of the mounting
rings, the following specifications
are required:
1. single PD for distance. (The nasal inset for near is
calculated on the basis of the different parameters
listed from 2 to 4.2)
2. viewing height for near (centre of mounting ring)
3. vertex distance (corneal vertex – front lens vertex)
4. prescription of carrier lenses

LED Saphiro 2 Illumination
Saphiro2 is a mobile, high-performance LED illumination system used by professional users, above all in
combination with head-worn loupes. The fields of view
are illuminated by Saphiro2 with uniform brightness
and without shadows in a spectrum resembling daylight, allowing many visual tasks to be performed much
more effectively and comfortably.
The required brightness can be set continuously on a
control device. An powerful rechargeable battery
allows mobile, line-independent operation. The control
device is worn on the body using a belt clip.
The high degree of wearing comfort is ensured by low
weight. The very small, lightweight illuminating head
of Saphiro2 can be attached to all head-worn loupes
from Carl Zeiss Vision using mechanical adapters.
A special eyeglass clip allows Saphiro2 to be attached
to practically any eyeglass frame.
An ideal, very easy combination of magnification and
illumination is achieved through the use of the
20-692 e-III/2009
Teleloupe Spectacles GTX with Saphiro2.

Background Information
For the prescription and fitting of low vision devices, Carl
Zeiss Vision offers various fitting devices which allow
you to work systematically.
Standard fitting set
The standard fitting set contains materials for the prescription and fitting of those optical magnifying devices
which cater for the requirements of the vast majority of
persons with low vision.
Test charts for
low vision patients
The test charts for low vision patients offer a selection of
optotypes adapted to reduced testing distances of 1 m
and 2 m. With the acuity grades of 0.025 – 1.00, they are
ideal for testing low vision patients.
Near vision test charts
The near vision test charts provide rapid information on
the reading ability of low vision patients. The size of
the reading print which the patient can still just see
provides a direct indication of what near magnification
is required to allow the reading of standard print sizes
again.
Binocular reading charts
The binocular reading charts consist of test groups of
different sizes, each comprising three lines. The upper
and lower lines are polarizing, the line in the middle is
not. If appropriate analyzers are placed in front of the
patient’s eyes, clear information is obtained on the
patient’s reading ability.
Fitting set for Teleloupes GTX
This fitting set offers you the possibility of demonstrating Teleloupe Systems GTX, taking into account each
individual patient’s ametropia and accommodation. For
example, it is possible to measure the actual working
20-694 e-III/2009
distance resulting when the patient looks through the
systems, a parameter which influences the exact centration of the systems.

The primary goal in providing patients with low
vision devices is to enable them to read standard
print sizes (e.g. in newspapers) again. An acuity of
0.4 (acuitynominal) is required for this purpose. Even
smaller print (medication instruction leaflets, phone
books, etc.) require a higher acuity (approx. 0.7).
Required magnification for near vision => can be
taken directly from the value given in the near
vision test charts.
3. Testing and selecting low vision devices

Standard Fitting Set
for Low Vision Devices
The Standard Fitting Set for Low Vision Devices consists
of material for determining and fitting of those low
vision aids from Carl Zeiss Vision which cater for the
vast majority of persons with a severe visual impairment.
It contains test units for the G 1.8, G 2.2, K 4 and K 4
vario Telescopic Spectacles. The Test Charts for the
Visually Impaired and the Near Vision Test Charts are
located in the upper part of the compact case.
The test units include telescope systems and clip-on
lenses for determining and demonstrating distance and
near magnifications.
Clip-on lenses with +1.00 D are each used for dioptric
compensation at a test distance of 1 m.
The ZEISS Precision Trial Frame – in addition to other
common trial frames – is especially recommended for
use with the Standard Fitting Set for Low Vision Aids.
The test systems are simply inserted in the slots
intended for the trial lenses and, if necessary, fixed
in position.
Two system carriers in different sizes* can be used
either directly for fitting the low vision aid or for
determining the size of the system carrier required.
There is ample room in the case for the Binocular
Reading Tests and the accompanying polarisation-clip.
Please see our price list for a detailed breakdown of
the equipment required.

Test Charts for
Low Vision Patients
Four successive sheets contain optotypes which are specially adapted to the requirements of low vision. Based on
the test distances of 1 and 2 m, visual acuities between
0.025 and 1.0 can be tested and read off at once without
any need for conversion. The low acuity range has been
graduated to allow reasonably reliable information to also
be obtained on visual performance in the case of low
acuities. Additional optotypes with the acuity grades 0.32
to 0.64 are available for the common viewing distance
of 3 m. A lateral thumb index allows the optotype size
to be quickly selected.
The Test Charts for the Visually Impaired are also very
suitable for performing standard acuity testing in the
patient’s home.
The DIN A 4 test charts are made of wear-resistant plastic
with laminated, dirt-repellent covers. They can be easily
positioned or hung up in any location and are therefore
ready for use at any time. They are just as easy to fold up
20-694 e-III/2009
again and can be stored without taking up much space.

Near Vision Test Charts
Seven sheets of reading texts in various sizes are provided. Magnifications of 25x to 1x, referred to standard
newspaper print at a viewing distance of 0.25 m, are
assigned to each of these texts.
The Near Vision Test Charts enable the determination of
the patient's reading ability. The size of the reading
print which the patient can still just see provides
a direct indication of what near magnification is
required to allow the reading of standard print sizes.
The lateral thumb index allows fast selection of the
required text groups.

Binocular Reading Charts
The Binocular Reading Charts consist of a transparent
test film with successive, three-line text groupings of
different sizes. The texts of the upper and lower lines
are polarizing. If appropriate analyzers are placed in
front of the patient’s eyes, he or she will be able to see
the upper line with one eye and the bottom line with
the other. The middle, non-polarizing line, on the other
hand, can be seen with the two eyes. When in use, the
test film is positioned in its plastic frame at a medium
reading tilt in front of a white, curved and diffusely
reflecting surface. Testing is performed in normal room
lighting.
The Binocular Reading Charts permit binocular comparison of coherent reading texts under binocular conditions. This aid can therefore be used to determine reading binocularity in general, and that of low vision
patients in particular.
The DIN A 4 test charts are made of wear-resistant
plastic with laminated, dirt-repellent covers. They can
be easily positioned or hung up in any location and are
therefore ready for use at any time. They are just as

Fitting Set
for Teleloupe Spectacles GTX
The GTX Fitting Set allows the binocular demonstration
of the GTX 2 or GTX 2.5 systems, taking into account
each patient’s accommodation and ametropia.
This allows the determination of the actual working
distance and prevents errors in the centration of the
teleloupe systems.
In the standard configuration, the fitting set contains
two test holders for insertion in a trial frame, two
GTX systems each for the working distances 350 mm
and 450 mm, and a storage case.
The GTX Teleloupe Systems are available with 2x or
2.5x magnification.

Fitting Set
for Special Filter Lenses
The fitting set for special filter lenses enables the
demonstration of various filter colors using filter clips
which can be used with almost all prescription frames.
The patient is able to easily compare the various filter
colors and determine which color fits best.
The standard filter set contains four filter clips (F 540,
F 560, F 60 and F 80), as well as a case.
The binocular lorgnette (glazed with special filter
20-694 e-III/2009

Background Information
Special filter lenses for medical applications completely
absorb part of the visible spectrum. Receptors in the
eye which are sensitive to this region are deliberately
“underexposed”. The contrast between those receptors
subjected to maximum, and those subjected to minimum exposure is increased. Studies have shown that,
in certain diseases of the retina, special filter lenses
often enhance contrast and reduce the time required to
adapt to different light conditions.
There are no uniform, objective criteria for the prescription of special filter lenses. Instead, the most suitable lens is usually found by trying out the various
options available, especially for such degenerative eye
disorders as retinitis pigmentosa or diabetic retinopathy. Carl Zeiss Vision offers special lorgnettes and filter
clips for this purpose.
Patients subjectively compare and assess the visual
comfort provided by the different types of filter lens
available.
Many sufferers need different filter lenses for different

light conditions and therefore often have several pairs
of spectacles.

retina, the sensory cells (rods and cones) are not

degenerate. The many forms which this disease takes
make it impossible to give an exact description of
the symptoms.
Initially, the function of the rods is impaired. Increasing
difficulty is experienced with twilight and night vision,
extending to total night blindness. There is a gradual
contraction of the visual field from the periphery
inwards until the patient is left with “gun barrel”
vision. Orientation then becomes very problematic.
A further symptom of RP is reduced cone function.
Reduced visual acuity, a deterioration in visual contrast
and colour, and a high degree of sensitivity to glare
are the result. Special filter lenses often provide
enhanced wearing comfort.

colour blindness in which the cones totally fail to

The special filter lenses absorb the wavelength range
to which the rods are oversensitive and therefore

Increased visual comfort
for diabetic retinopathy
The damage caused by diabetes is usually focused on
the middle and inner layers of the retina which are
responsible for processing image contrast.
In a retina damaged by diabetes the sensitivity to contrast is impaired. In bright surroundings, relatively dark
details generate the maximum signal possible in the
brain. Brighter details do not generate a sufficiently
strong signal and cannot therefore be distinguished
from darker zones. Particularly patients in the advanced
stages of diabetic retinopathy are easily dazzled by
glare and find light/dark adaptation difficult.
Cut-off filters such as F 540, F 560 and F 580 absorb
the part of the spectrum to which the cones are
sensitive and hence shield them. The special filter
lenses therefore reduce glare and facilitate adaptation
