How to Customize your "Look-Down" Angle 

The Declination-Angle of your loupes, also known as the "look-down" angle, is set to provide a clear line of sight between your eyes and what you are working on.

Did you know with SurgiTel's custom Front-Lens-Mounted loupes you can change this setting at any time?

Why Custom Loupes Matter


We all consider our friends' advice when buying something new. This method works great for hiring a painter or buying a new vacuum cleaner, but what about our own personal loupes?


My friend says...


"I have been using 2.5x Through-the-Lens (TTL) Loupes. I can do my work much better and I have had a great experience with them. I recommend these loupes to anyone who asks."


Your friend may swear there is no need for magnification higher than 2.5x and that Front-Lens-Mounted (FLM) Loupes are too complicated compared to their TTL Loupes.


We all appreciate our friends' advice, and our loupe purchase would be much quicker if we simply copied their recommendation, but ask this question:


Are you your friend?


Are you and your friend the same height? Are your facial features, such as nose height, the same as your friend's? Do you sit in the same chair in the same office? Do you do the same work? The exact same procedures?


Probably not.


That's why your personalized Custom Loupes are so important. Make sure your loupe company can offer both custom TTL and custom FLM loupes. SurgiTel does. Both TTL and FLM loupes have their own unique advantages and disadvantages. Make sure your personal Declination Angle, or Look-down Angle, can be built by your choice of company. SurgiTel has the technology to make this easy. Also, make sure your loupe company is able to provide you with the unique magnification and features you need as a unique person. SurgiTel has the most magnification options among all loupe companies.

This Month's Question
Question Icon
Q:  Peggy from Lake Placid, New York asked:
"I have prescription bifocals. I am age 55 and my prescription is still changing every year. Can I use loupes??"
A: Sure you can use loupes! Since your prescription needs to be regularly updated, consider our custom Front-Lens-Mounted (FLM) loupes. Through-The-Lens (TTL) loupes require a return to our facilities for updating prescriptions. The advantage to our FLM loupes is that you can also recieve new lenses from your local eyeglasses provider!*
