WHAT TO EXPECT.

Colorimetry is the science of determining colour using numerical measurements rather than subjective responses. In all fields, it has a profound impact on colour generation, rendition, and perception.

 

The type of illumination, the optical properties of the object, and the human eye's response all have an impact on how we see colour.

Visual stress is characterised as visual discomfort and perceptual anomalies in printed text, and it affects many people who struggle to read. According to estimates, the issue affects approximately 40% of impoverished readers and 20% of the general population to varying degrees.

Colored overlays might assist you in reading more quickly and precisely. They can assist you in reading for long periods of time without becoming exhausted. When this happens, it's a hint that Precision Tinted Lenses could be beneficial. The lenses are prescribed using a Colorimeter, a specialised piece of equipment.

EASY & AFFORDABLE
DONT SETTLE FOR LESS

A colorimeter consists of a light source, fixed-geometry viewing optics, three photocells calibrated to an internationally recognised Standard Observer, and either an on-board processor or a cable connection to a processor/display unit or computer.
