Iseikonic Lenses

Differentials of refractive errors between the eyes, anisometropia, can cause fusional difficulties due to aniseikonia, the difference in magnification between the eyes, especially when corrected with standard ophthalmic lenses.

Providing optimal optics to your aniseikonic patients is a simple and effective way of applying behavioural principals to your practice. Best management of aniseikonia (greater than 1D OD vs. OS) is through contact lenses, or iseikonic lenses. This should be a first step in addressing binocular problems associated with anisometropia, even if the anisometropia does not induce aniseikonia.

I have had great experience with Shaw Lenses, both technically and on the service end. Contact them directly to get ordering and warranty information. You will not be disappointed.
