CUSTOMIZED VISION TESTS WITH TRADITION
//SUBJECTIVE REFRACTION


AT LUNETTES SELECTION BERLIN, PART OF OUR MISSION IS TO CULTIVATE TRADITIONS. THAT’S INHERENT NOT JUST IN OUR HAND-PICKED SELECTION OF FRAMES AND LENSES, BUT ALSO OUR CONCEPT OF OPTICAL SERVICE. IN OUR BERLIN BOUTIQUE, OUR OPTICIANS GAUGE THE PROPER PRESCRIPTION FOR YOUR VISION USING A RARELY-SEEN TRADITIONAL METHOD CALLED SUBJECTIVE REFRACTION. IN CONTRAST TO THE QUICK CHECKS THAT HAVE BECOME STANDARD IN TODAY’S OPTICAL WORLD, PARTICULARLY IN TRENDY START-UPS, SUBJECTIVE REFRACTION IS A MORE INTENSIVE AND INDIVIDUALIZED WAY TO EVALUATE YOUR EYESIGHT.

AFTER TAKING A COMPREHENSIVE OPTICAL HISTORY, OUR MASTER OPTICIANS DETERMINE YOUR PRESCRIPTION STEP BY STEP, HOLDING LENSES OF DIFFERENT STRENGTHS IN FRONT OF YOUR EYE WHILE YOU DETERMINE HOW THEY IMPROVE OR IMPAIR WHAT YOU SEE.

INSTEAD OF FAST COMPUTER EYE TESTS, AT LUNETTES SELECTION BERLIN, WE USE MANUAL REFRACTION GLASSES THAT ALLOW OUR OPTICIANS TO SHOW YOU WHAT YOUR VISION WILL BE WHEN USING A COMPUTER, OR AT NIGHT.

THIS RELAXED AND PRECISE PROCESS TAKES YOUR FEEDBACK INTO ACCOUNT, CREATING A PERSONAL INTERACTION BETWEEN YOU AND OUR OPTICIAN THAT ENSURES AN ABSOLUTELY ACCURATE MEASUREMENT. AS A RESULT, YOUR PHYSICAL AND MENTAL CONDITION AT THE TIME OF YOUR TEST IS VERY IMPORTANT.

PLEASE COME US RELAXED AND HEALTHY, AND NOT WEARING CONTACT LENSES. YOU DON’T NEED AN APPOINTMENT; JUST MAKE SURE TO ARRIVE NO LATER THAN ONE HOUR BEFORE CLOSING TIME.
