Optical Refractive Properties and Optical Quality of Lens Tester

“Smart_OptiBench automatically checks the Optical Power of SunLenses and frame mounted SunGlasses”

Smart_OptiBench performs fully automatic tests equivalent to Telescope Method to check Refractive Powers for Afocal SunLenses and SunGlasses in a short time. This innovative System takes objective and repeatable high precision measures for any kind of Afocal Lenses, including Polarized Thermoformed and Mirrored Lenses, with full automatic data report and no need of intervention by the operator.

In one unique device, Smart_OptiBench performs test on both Adults and Kids SunGlasses and has adjustable interpupillary distance. Its user friendly interface shows a simple « Pass / Fail » semaphore output according to main International Standards and doesn’t need input of T%.

Smart_OptiBench accomplishes complete measurements of Refractive Powers for afocal SunLenses and SunGlasses. Moreover, it is the unique device able to determine the Optical Quality of the Lenses through a Sharpness Index based on MTF method (Optional), to ensure complete compliance with International Standards, and also European Regulation (EU) 2016/425.

Smart_OptiBench is the first Optical Bench that, in addition to measuring Optical Powers (according to different International Standards), is able to carry out an assessment of perception of the contrast as required by new European Regulation Reg. (EU) 2016 / 425.

Test Methods indicated by current harmonized European Standards do not fully cover all the essential requirements described by new Regulation. Specifically, there is no indication of methods to evaluate perception of contrast. This feature was introduced for the first time by Reg. (EU) 2016 / 425 :

“Annex II – Essential health and safety requirements

Clause 3.9.1 Non-ionising radiation PPE designed to prevent acute or chronic eye damage from sources of non-ionising radiation must be capable of absorbing or reflecting the majority of the energy radiated in the harmful wavelengths without unduly affecting the transmission of the innocuous part of the visible spectrum, the perception of contrasts and the ability to distinguish colours where required by the foreseeable conditions of use. 31.3.2016 L 81/82 Official Journal of the European Union EN… (Abstract)”

As is well known, harmonized Standards guarantee the presumption of compliance with Regulation based only to characteristics specifically considered by the Standard. Therefore, the producer is responsible for proving that the essential requirements included in the Regulation, and not included in the Standards, have been also satisfied.
