TYPES OF SURGICAL LOUPES

Mini Loupes are designed to be ultra light and comfortable.

Standard Loupes : larger field of view and a two lens system

Hi-resolution Loupes : bright image and larger field of view. 

Prismatic Loupes : higher magnification and field of view.

Prismatic Loupes have a more sophisticated multi component optical system. 

The prismatic loupes use a double or Schmidt-Pechan prism to extend the optical path without significantly increasing the length and weight of the telescope body

loupe types

Galilean telescopes are small and lightweight due to their rather simple optical design.
Keplerian telescopes are longer and heavier as they incorporate prisms to reorient what would otherwise be an upside down and inverted image.They give wider field of view and higher magnification.

Keeler loupe field of view

Keeler surgical loupes have  high quality Schott glass and choices of flexible hinges providing a large range of declination to meet procedure and posture needs.

For the spectacle wearer you have a choice of wearing your spectacles under the Keeler frame or using the RX lens holder for your prescription lenses

We can advise recommended working distances based on your height,prescription and posture.

SURGICAL LOUPE FRAMES

Frames need to be suitable for the loupe.

Wrap frames properly designed are often used,with safety shields.
Protection by lightweight plastic splashguards can be easily  detached when not required.

The Keeler headband offers adjustable nose pads.

Protective and 1 dioptre distance caps  protect the  front lens. Powered caps will allow even more magnification but will change working distances.

 The loupes removable flip lever and protective caps are easily removed and are designed to be autoclaveable to ensure  bio safety.

The correct posture, viewing angle and ability to see normally are the benefits of ‘flip up’ loupes as a three way adjustable hinge allows  positioning as required.

SURGICAL LOUPE ILLUMINATION

The Keeler Loupe Light is one of the smallest and lightest available.. The LED illumination gives 34000 Lux of homogenous white light, ideal for both surgical and dental use, while coaxial illumination ensures shadow free viewing.

An optional yellow filter avoids the premature hardening of composites.

 Lithium-ion battery  will give up to 7 hours continuous use before a recharge is required.
