Avatar Virtual Try On


Zeiss are currently uploading 360 degree scans of frames from suppliers. Once we have an avatar of our clients head we can accurately dispense a pair of glasses or sunglasses without having to have the frame physically in store.

Virtual Try On – This feature builds an avatar of the clients head so that frames can be virtually tried. This allows Gill Opticians to virtually show frames and colours available in a particular model or colour which is not in stock at that time.

This new tech allows us to show how a tint will look glazed into frame so there a Frame Comparison – If a client cannot decide between styles the frame comparison tool can be used. We can take unlimited photos and compare them on screen. If a patient cannot see themselves without their correction then this tool can also be used to aid the frame selection.

With this new innovation the quantity of stock Gill Opticians can carry virtually is virtually unlimited.

Facial Measurements

Accurate to 0.1mm the Zeiss Visufit 1000 allows us to dispense the full range of Zeiss lens products. In total 5 individual facial measurements combine with the patients prescription to make a lens which is fully bespoke to the wearers requirements.

Lenses can be tailored to your individual needs increasing the reading areas or computer areas where necessary. With the use of the Visufit 1000 we can also demonstrate where the reading area is on the lens and it is possible to move this area up and down to the wearers specific requirements.
