Why are loupes USUALLY so expensive?
Traditional loupes companies sell their loupes face-to-face. They employ a vast army of sales reps to visit individual practices, have expensive offices and large budgets for trade shows.
why are you cheaper than other companies?
As an online based company, we cut out the middle men. We show you how to take the measurements that you need yourself, from the comfort of your home, saving costs that we pass onto our customers.
Are loupes tax deductible?
According to HMRC (Section 336), an expense can only be deductible if it is used wholly, exclusively and necessarily in the performance of the duties of the employment.
Dental loupes are therefore a 100% tax deductible expense as they meet the requirements set out by HMRC. They are used wholly and exclusively for dental work, and are necessary for providing excellent patient care.
How long does it take to make my loupes?
Flip up loupes and lights are sent with next day delivery provided we have them in stock.
TTL loupes typically take 3-5 weeks to be made according to your specifications. However, we can occasionally make your loupes more quickly if you have a specific deadline. Please ask us when purchasing your loupes.
How can I add my prescription?
Your prescription clips onto the inside of the loupes frame. It is removable, allowing you to simply change the lenses should you prescription change, or remove it completely if wearing contact lenses. This saves a lot of money in the longterm - traditional companies can charge £300+ to change your prescription.

Can I arrange a demo?
As an online company, we cannot afford to provide individual practice based demos without increasing our prices. We do however have a number of locations across the UK where you are welcome to meet with us to view our products. Please visit the Support page for more information.
How do your loupes compare to other brands?
Our customers consistently tell us that our loupes are on par with if not better than those costing thousands. We provide a full arch view at any magnification, even 5x, and our lightest pair of loupes is just 42 grams.
