Kings Hill Opticians are delighted to be one of only a handful of practices in the country to be able to offer patients the dispensing revolution of VisiOffice X. This 3D, cutting-edge technology redefines optics dispensing to create bespoke glasses for each patient, offering the clearest, most natural vision possible.  

Open Day, 22nd May

Enjoy prosecco and canapés while you experience this revolution in glasses dispensing to see how VisiOffice X could improve your quality of life.

How it works

VisiOffice X takes a unique set of 3D measurements to create your most comfortable pair of glasses ever – bespoke to you.

When you’ve had glasses fitted in the past, you’ve had your head and the frames measured – and that’s it. VisiOffice X takes much more detailed measurements of your face and the frame parameters – including how and where they sit on your face – but it also uniquely measures your anatomy and your behaviour.

Your ‘behaviour’ refers to where and how you look. For example, VisiOffice X measures whether you move your eyes quickly or whether you are a head mover to calculate your visual behaviour for tasks at different distances.

The results: a uniquely comfortable pair of glasses  

All of the measurements taken by VisiOffice X are combined to create lenses that are bespoke to you – not only to your face shape and size, but to how you look at the world. Even if you came in with your twin and you chose the same frames, you would end up with different lenses as your visual behaviour will be different.

The result is that you will have a truly unique pair of glasses personalised for you, to give you the most clear, natural vision without having to adjust your behaviour or posture. 

Who can benefit from VisiOffice X

Any one with prescription lenses will experience their most comfortable glasses ever when they are measured by VisiOffice X, but the higher the prescription or the more complex the lens, the more noticeable the results are likely to be:

  • Varifocals: If you wear varifocals and are fed up at having to change how you tilt your head to see different objects clearly, VisiOffice X is the answer you have been waiting for to create effortlessly clear vision at any distance
  • Prescriptions of +/-  2: If you have high prescription lenses for either short or long sight, you may have clear vision when you look through the centre of your lenses, but distorted vision if you look to the side. VisiOffice X eliminates peripheral distortion, again giving you the clearest, most natural vision ever, no matter what you’re doing.

Additional benefits

VisiOffice X offers an educational experience. You will not only end up with your most comfortable glasses ever, you’ll also have a better understanding of your eye health.

To find out how VisiOffice X could improve your quality of life, join us on 22nd May or call 01732 875544 to book your demonstration – because you deserve clear, comfortable, effortless vision.
