Being a surgeon is not only a noble career but a lifelong commitment to provide the best quality care

for patients who are in need of your talented hands. However, no matter how talented,

knowledgeable, and skillful you are as a surgeon, your work can still be limited to what your eyes

can see. Thankfully, there are magnification optical aids like Schultz surgical loupes that can help

improve your visual acuity.

Surgical loupes are precision optical instruments that magnify the image you can see through the

lens. They are available in different designs, magnification power, and types. The most common

types of surgical loupes are the flip-up loupes and the through the lens loupes. In this article, we are

going to talk more about the advantages of through the lens surgical loupes.

So, what are the advantages of through the lens or TTL surgical loupes? The primary advantages of

TTL loupes are the weight, fit, comfort, field of view, and prescription inclusion.


Weight

Through the lens, loupes are relatively lighter than any other type of surgical loupes. This is due to

how their optical barrels are positioned. As opposed to the flip-up loupes where the optical barrels

are attached to a hinge mechanism, the optical barrels of the TTL loupes are drilled directly on the

carrier lens. Thus, eliminating the added weight of the Flip-Up hinge.

Fit

The TTL loupes are customized to fit the measurements of the operator. These measurements

include the declination angle, interpupillary distance, and working distance. The surgical loupe has

to perfectly fit the operator’s needs and preferences in order to be effective. Otherwise, you may not

be able to enjoy the many benefits that surgical loupes offer.

Moreover, wearing the wrong loupes can be more of a risk than a benefit. Instead of helping you

avoid musculoskeletal pains and eye strain as well as of helping correct your working position, for

instance, you may be at risk of developing a poor posture which can lead to different health

problems.

Field of view

Since the optical barrels are positioned closer to the operator’s eyes, the TTL loupes offer a wider

field of view. This only means that you can be able to see a larger area of focus when looking

through the optical lens of the TTL loupes than when using flip-up loupes with the same

magnification power.


Prescription

A prescription can be added either in the carrier lens or optical barrels. If you need a distance

prescription, you can have it added in the carrier lens so you can be able to see clearly and in perfect

focus even if you are not using the optical barrels for magnification.

Comfort

TTL loupes provide more comfort than flip up loupes. Since they are custom made to cater the

working distance and PD distance of the operator, it can be easier for you to maintain an ergonomic

position without adjusting the loupes every now and then. Their light weight also adds to the

comfort. It is important to choose the lightest available TTL loupes. The longer you wear the loupes,

the more the weight will build up over time. If the weight starts to build up, it can affect both your

comfort and focus.

Moreover, the optical barrels of the TTL loupes do not protrude out that far, making it easier for you

to balance them without using much of your neck muscles.
