Dr. Soto uses the Zeiss i.Profiler. The i.Profiler is a 3-in-1 computerized instrument that incorporates the functionality of an aberrometer, corneal topographer, and autorefractor in a fast, compact, and easy-to-use system. It takes all the aberrations of the eye into consideration, including pupil apertures, while maintaining the integrity of you own spectacle prescription. When the pupil is larger, corneal distortions are more bothersome. Wavefront aberrometers detect higher-order aberrations that standard refraction cannot. Higher-order wavefront aberrations exist in every eye, but each patient’s aberration profile is unique. The data collected is put through a sophisticated prescription optimization algorithm that, combined with standard refraction, offer a balanced prescription that is balanced for higher-order aberrations. Patients get eyeglasses that reduce nighttime halo problems and improve visual acuity and the perception of contrast and color.
Using the data collected by the i.Profiler, Dr. Soto will prescribe Zeiss i.Scription lenses that correct your eyes to 1/100th of a diopter. Standard eyeglass lenses only correct to 0.25 of a diopter.
Once the prescription is determined, additional frame measurements are taken using the i.Terminal. Accuracy and prescription are the hallmarks of the i.Terminal dispensing system, which combines computerized technology with a patented laser speckle target system and digital camera to take measurements needed to fit standard eyewear as well as most customized products. Measurements are accurate to within 0.1 mm. This assures a superbly accurate fit for advanced digitally surfaced progressive lenses that take into account the exact position-of-wear. The i.Profiler automatically captures essential fitting data including pupillary distance, fitting height, pantoscopic angle, vertex distance, and frame wrap.
The i.Terminal has an interactive demonstration feature that allows you to see how lens enhancements such as, tints, photochromics, and antireflective treatments will look and function in the frames you have chosen.

Varilux X Series with Crizal
Varilux® X Series™, featuring Xtend™ Technology, is our most advanced progressive lens available. In addition to providing sharp vision and smooth transitions at any distance, it extends your vision within arm’s reach, so you no longer have to tilt or angle your head to find your focus.
Varilux Physio W2+& W3+
The W2+ and W3+ lenses are known as the most comfortable and best lens in this particular category. It is interesting to note that the W3 name comes from the word"Enhanced". This is due to the lens being digitally carved on both sides of the lense. As a result of this, there is less distortion and a wider area in the middle of the lens. Due to this, one gets a comfortable and easy to wear lens.
Harmful Blue Light may contribute to the development of certain eye conditions and is believed to increase the risk of age-related macular degeneration. Eyezen lenses block at least 20% of Harmful Blue Light rays. Our precision-engineered lenses let beneficial Blue-Turquoise Light pass through while deflecting a significant amount of the dangerous Blue Light.
