The new i.Scription® technology is explained by Dr. Michael Lange, Ocala optometrist
Have you ever picked up your brand new pair of glasses and they just were not right? Did your vision seemed blurry especially at night, or was there a lot of glare coming off of headlights while driving? Are you having difficulty adapting to the new prescription because things seemed distorted or blurry, or your eyes had a pulling sensation or you point blank could not get used to your new glasses? Well, this is a fairly commonplace in the optical industry. There are many potential reasons for not having a good spectacle prescription and having these adaptation issues. Maybe the doctor was going too quickly through the refractive process and the prescription was not correct to begin with? It is very important that the prescription the doctor derives from the refraction is accurate. It is possible that the optician in the optical did not take the correct measurements for your pupillary distance (PD) or maybe the seg height (placement of the bifocal segment) of your new progressive lens wasn’t measured accurately. The frame that was picked may not be correct for the particular prescription the doctor ordered. It is also possible when wearing a progressive lens that the particular progressive lens brand is not adequate for the particular frame that was picked for the job or the lifestyle of the patient or customer. So you can see there are a lot of variables when having a pair of glasses made. Human error is just about always involved in the process of determining the correct prescription for glasses and then in the proper measurements and the manufacturing of those spectacles. It wasn’t until recently that we had much of a choice.
The i.Profilerplus® and i.Terminal™ are used in an innovative new diagnostic procedure by Zeiss which reduces human error
Carl Zeiss Vision Inc., one of the leaders in eyecare and lens technology, is leading the way in new technology to minimize human error and obtain a much more accurate prescription for spectacles. Lange Eye Care Optical Gallery and Lasik Center in Clearwater, Florida, has the latest advancements in refractive technology developed by Zeiss. Lange Eye Care is one of the first eye care centers in the country to have this new and exciting refractive system called i.Scription® technology . The i.Profilerplus® is an all-in-one automated system that measures the refractive status of the patient, auto keratometry readings, corneal topography and wave front aberrometry in a matter of seconds. This information is then sent to a computer in the examination room for the doctor to use to determine a super customized i.Scription. The i.Scription is measured and written in 1/100th of a diopter increments (current technology only allows .25 diopter increment), allowing for a super customized prescription to maximize the clarity of a patient’s eyesight with their new prescription. The new i.Profiler technology takes higher order aberrations into consideration when calculating this new precise i.Scription. Higher order aberrations are small imperfections in the visual system that cause potential glare and decreased vision more often in dim illumination and at night. Now the doctors at Lange Eye Care have the ability to give you an i.Scription that will be written in 1/100th of a diopter increments. This prescription may improve your night vision dramatically and help to eliminate some eye fatigue. The additional cost to having the i.Scription performed is minimal and the additional benefits for many patients are dramatic. Ask one of the doctors at the Clearwater Lange Eye Care if you are a good candidate for this new i.Scription.

Human error is minimized with the new i.Profiler in the calculations of the i.Scription and now human error is also minimized with the addition of the i.Terminal™. The i.Terminal is another advanced piece of technology that allows for extremely accurate measurements for your Zeiss Individual™ progressive lenses.
This new technology takes precise measurements of pupillary distances, fitting heights, pantoscopic angle, vertex distance and frame wrap. It also allows the patient to review photo images while wearing specific frames to help determine which frame fits and looks best. The i.Terminal also provides demonstrations of lens enhancements to the patient or customer. The combination of the i.Profiler and the i.Terminal minimizes any human error and determines the most accurate prescription possible for your new super customized free-form back surface Zeiss Individual™ lenses. Lange Eye Care is leading the way in advanced refractive technology and taking patients into the future. Let’s face it, we all want to see as perfectly as possible. So the question is why wouldn’t you want to have an i.Scription? If you haven’t been satisfied with the spectacle correction you have, or vision isn’t as sharp as you think it should be, or you see glare around lights, or you do a lot of work in dim illumination or at night, you should consider coming to the Lange Eye Care Optical Gallery and Lasik Center in Clearwater, Florida, and seeing if the i.Scription technology is right for you.
