Compare Leading Brands of Dental Loupes & Surgical Loupes

Since our founding in 1999, SheerVision has always recommended that you only trust to your eyes to a reputable brand same loupe manufacturer - so please shop carefully. You should be aware that “cheap loupes” are often just that. All loupe optics are definitely not created equal, thus it makes sense to do your research.

Numerous “cheap” loupe companies offer optics that don’t provide a clear image from edge-to-edge with the optics then limiting your movement. These optics often cause headaches and other issues when worn for long periods during the day. The optics don't provide clarity - they just aren’t clear & focused - so they just won’t perform well.

Plus, if you ever need service – good luck as many of these "cheap" companies don’t provide any service – or are not even in business when you need assistance.

Thus, we highly recommend that you make your loupe purchase from a established, brand-name loupe manufacturer.

""I cannot express how pleased I am with the loupes. I have used loupes for over a decade now but these loupes are by far the most comfortable and easy to get on with I have ever experienced. The lenses give a sharp and precise picture showing fantastic detail and yet are extremely comfortable to wear. I am so pleased with my purchase."

Dr. Ian R. Jones

"I wanted to have a spare pair of TTL Loupes and decided to try your special offer on the sports frame style. I have used a competitors 2.5x TTL loupes for the last 8 yrs. I am so impressed with my new loupes. Not only are they stylish, but the visual clarity is amazing. They are so light weight I don't realize I've had them on for eight hours. Thank you SheerVision for developing a product that is truly better than the competition.

Janet Zeller, RDH BSDH

"I went with Sheer Vision for two reasons. 1. The customer service has been excellent. 2. Quality. The loupe glass is clear and the frames solid. I am a Pediatric Dentist working in a fast paced office and these loupes have held up without issue... Very happy with my Loupes and the customer service so far."

Dr. Bryce Bott
