The Hassle-Free VDC Loupe System

qualityAny audiologist involved in cerumen management and/or other procedures necessitating high-depth of field resolution of the external ear canal needs a high-quality loupe system. One of the initial drawbacks of trying out a new loupe is the perceived amount of effort in making necessary adjustments to achieve a clear image. This is particularly evident when a practice with multiple clinicians is pursuing a loupe system that they intended to share between several colleagues. If this is or has been a frustration or concern, try the no-hassle, no-adjustment VDC Loupe System.

98-1805Designed for visualization of the ear canal, the VDC Loupe System attains an extremely high depth of field with excellent edge acuity, and retains focus even when the patient moves. What makes this system hassle-free is the fact that the loupes reside within the actual glasses and, therefore, do not come equipped with a knob to adjust for interocular distance.  The relative loupe location is based on average adult Pupillary Distance (PD). PD refers to the distance between the pupils of the eyes, center to center, measured in millimeters.  The VDC Loupe System (item# 98-1805) is specifically designed for PD measuring 30mm which will be suitable and appropriate in more than 90% of adults.

pdEven though the VDC Loupe System above will work for the majority of health care professionals, additional versions are available, each identical with the exception of how far apart the left and right loupes are positioned from one another.  If you wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, obtain your PD from your ophthalmologist, optometrist or optician to customize your VDC Loupe system. If you do not wear glasses or contact lenses and want to know your PD to ensure the most appropriate version is ordered, measure your own PD using How To Measure PD instructions.
