This instrument was developed by Professor Arnold Wilkins and the Medical Research Council and manufactured exclusively by CVT.
It is used under the direction of our Optometrist to logically and sequentially explore colour space to find the optimal Precision Tint for the relief of perceptual distortions in Visual Stress.
Visual Stress refers to reading difficulties, light sensitivity and headaches from exposure to disturbing visual patterns.
The instrument independently changes the three parameters of colour, hue, saturation and brightness while the eyes are colour adapted. This will give a final colour which is extremely precise to each individuals needs.
The outcome will differ for each customer with absolute precision coming from more than 100,000 colour combinations.
The colour tint is selected quickly and efficiently in an examination lasting about 20-30 minutes carried out by our specialised practitioner.
The optimal, most beneficial colour for each individual can change over time, especially with children. It is therefore very important that the patient re-visits Kenyon’s Opticians regularly for re-evaluations.
Cerium Precision Tinted Lenses
Each colour selected using the Intuitive Colorimeter is reproduced exactly in laboratory conditions. The lenses used are a safe plastic material and any refractive correction can be incorporated in the lens.
Lenses are dyed to a degree of accuracy beyond that commonly found in Ophthalmic tinting.
Colorimetry examinations are not funded by the NHS and are not reccommended for children below 8 years of age.
