Introducing the latest ZEISS Vision experience at Cliff Williams

With social distancing in mind we are proud that our technology allows us to offer digital eye examinations using equipment made by CARL ZEISS - one of the market leaders in optics for over 170 years. For this year we have introduced ultra wide field retinal photography from ZEISS - the Clarus 500, please scroll down to find out more.

This video shows how the information links as you move through the eye test and journey with our equipment:

  1. Measuring your existing spectacles on the Visulens 500
  2. Assessing your eyes objectively quickly to 0.01 dioptres on the i.Profiler Plus
  3. Contactless and convenient vision testing experience with the Visuscreen 500 and Visuphor 500
  4. Ultra wide field retinal photography with the Clarus 500
  5. Biomicroscopy examination with the Zeiss Digital slit lamp
  6. Visual field screening with the Humphrey Visual Field Analysers
  7. 3D assessment of the back of the eye (posterior) using the Cirrus HD-OCT
  8. 3D assessment of the front of the eye (anterior) using the Cirrus HD-OCT
  9. Spectacle M.O.T. to check on how much of an improvement is possible with new modern bespoke using ZEISS MY VISION PROFILE
  10. Frame selection and best lens design for your needs using ZEISS software Visuconsult 500
  11. 3D Facial scanning for accurate lens positioning - digital centration using the VISUFIT1000

We can then order the latest lens designs to make things as clear and as comfortable as possible, including fully bespoke - Individual design - lenses which ZEISS is world renowned for.

Just like mobile phones, technology is moving forward and this is why we keep investing in ZEISS equipment to keep you working with the latest lenses for optimum comfort and clarity. We now have over £200,000 of ZEISS equipment making up our unique ZEISS Vision Experience!

*Additional professional fees apply for OCT imaging and ultra wide field retinal photography ranging from £30 to £50. Many of our Patients do ask if they can have all of the scans and photos done as it makes for a very thorough eye examination and digital record. 

We use the latest technology from Zeiss using a fully linked platform of technology, see the overview of the equipment we use here:

NEW FOR 2021- ZEISS Clarus 500 Ultra wide field retinal photography in true colour

Having seen the massive leap forward in retinal photography compared to our old ZEISS camera we have upgraded to the Clarus 500

Our ZEISS Slit lamp with digital imaging can take still or video as we assess your eyes, this can be advantageous in documenting any changes, or if we have to carry out a referral to Ophthalmlology. The additional custom made screen by Cliff can be seen, offering extra protection between Optometrist and Patient.

Using the ZEISS Cirrus HD-OCT we can 3D scan the back of the eye to check for macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic changes and other medical conditions, we also have the ability to scan the front (anterior chamber) of the eye to check that the structure has open angles as well as assessing the corneal thickness (pachymetry). We were the first to have OCT in Fife with the first one being installed in 2009! Now than ever before we find this an essential test to have done, allowing us to scan your eye while sitting two metres away.

The ZEISS OCT scan is not part of the NHS funded eye examination and we do recommend this is done, we can operate the OCT from a social distance too, which allows us to assess your eyes, safely.   Here are some of the scans we can achieve in HD with our fully equipped OCT:
