How to Measure Working Distance for Your Dental Loupes

How to measure the correct working distance for your loupes ( TTLs or Flip Ups) is a question we are asked frequently at L.A. Lens. It is a measurement that is very simple and quick to take.

The working distance refers to the distance between the doctor's/ hygienist's eyes and the patients mouth. In order to measure this distance, you require two people, the user and the helper. The user needs to assume a normal working position, and needs to make sure that they do not lean forward too much when measuring. Then, the helper needs to place the edge of the tape measure on the bridge of the nose of the user and draw it downwards to the patients front teeth. This number will tell you whether the user needs a Short, Regular, Long or Extra-Long working distance in their pair of loupes. Please use the picture and chart below to help determine the correct working distance.


Taking your working distance measurement is one step in our guide to purchasing loupes, which can be found here.

If you require any further help with taking your working distance measurement please do hesitate to give us a call on (844)-332-8383 or send an email to info@la-lens.com.

Take 5 Megapixel Photographs with the MiniCam HD Loupe-Mounted Camera

Did you know… 

Not only can you use the L.A. Lens MiniCam HD to take HD videos, you can also use it to take high-definition, 5-megapixel photographs. This function is entirely unique to the MiniCam HD and results in higher definition photographs than can be attained with any other loupe-mounted camera on the market.

For dental and medical professionals who are used to taking high quality photos with DSLR cameras, this 5-megapixel function is key. Still images taken with this setting come out clear, crisp, and in a high enough resolution to be zoomed in and enlarged. Pictured below is a still image taken with the MiniCam HD.

One of the most exciting benefits of using the MiniCam HD to take your high-resolution images is that the MiniCam HD is entirely hands-free. By tapping the foot pedal, you are able to capture exactly what you see through your loupes in perfect focus. Images are taken from your point of view and you do not have to stop what you are doing to take them. Similar to the video recording function, you are able to take still images using 2x, 4x, or 8x magnification.

Another valuable feature of the MiniCam HD 5-megapixel mode is the ability to zoom in on the picture, simply by clicking the image, to see greater detail – as pictured below.

The Futudent software separates your videos and images into two different libraries, so that you are able to easily navigate through both.

Finally, all photographs are saved automatically to your library where you can choose to share/ upload them to the cloud, export them to your desktop as Jpegs images, or export them to your practice management software.
