Mounting Options - Which is best for you?

Front Lens Mount or Through the Lens?

Front Lens Mount allows for best posture and is most suitabe for users requiring prescription.

Why best posture? Patented vertical adjustment in front lens mounted loupes allows for a fully adjustable declination angle for optimum neck posture and visual alignment. The vertical slide double hinge combination allows loupe to be fully adjustable and perfectly aligned, unlike other loupes, which are only semi-adjustable, leading to misalignment and compromised posture.

Through The Lens allows for a slightly larger field of view and are slightly lighter than front lens mounted version.

Which frame will I choose?

SurgiTel offers multiple loupe frames to choose from for your Front-Lens-Mounted (FLM) or Through-the-Lens loupes (TTL), including both the Oakley® line and SurgiTel’s own custom-engineered Aero and ComfortFlex frame.

Prism Pro Loupes available in 5.5x, 6.5x & 8.0x

Prism Pro loupes are available on a variety of stylish and sturdy frames in both a TTL and Front Lens Mount.

Higher magnification always brings out fine details that are critical for microsurgical applications. In the past the only way to achieve this kind of detail was with a microscope. Where microscopes can fail is when a patient is not sedated and is moving around. High power magnification loupes are becoming more and more popular for those users that recognize a benefit of seeing inside the oral cavity in exquisite detail.

Wearing an 8x surgical telescope allows the user to move with the patient and reposition their body without having to set down instruments. This saves critical time further enhancing efficiency. Wearing an 8x loupe is perfect for dentists that have limited work space and feel that installing a microscope is not a feasible option.


“Since 2001 I have purchased three pairs of loupes, two of which have been SurgiTel from INLINE Medical & Dental. The key factor for me to purchase SurgiTel over any other brand was because I knew they would be excellent in quality, comfortable and offer value service, and the price was good as well!

Since purchasing my new 5.5x magnification loupes and additional headlight, I find I am able to provide my patients with the best quality of care. The higher magnification of 5.5x allows for better attention to detail, especially in complex restorative and molar endodontic, which I have an interest in. My headlight is also fantastic! It allows for optimal lighting in those areas of the mouth that are usually difficult to see in that regard.

These loupes have definitely alleviated back and neck pain and allowed for posture improvements. They are also more comfortable as they are lighter than my previous loupes.

I could not be happier with my new loupes. They are well worth the investment and make coming to work a pleasure.”

Dr Michael Cahill – Freshwater Dental, Freshwater NSW

“The most striking difference between these new SurgiTel loupes and my old loupes is they are custom fit, fit well, and do not require regular adjusting. The ability to choose any working length for any magnification was the key factor for me choosing SurgiTel over other brands of loupes.

The loupes alleviate back and neck pain and allow for perfect posture due to customisable working length. In addition to this they are ‘more comfortable’ than I was expecting as the weight is barely noticeable.

I can see far more than I used to. I can locate canals much more easily and pick up very fine details. I bought them for endodontics but now use them for all procedures. They are definitely a great addition to your practice.”

Dr Isidoro Ferlito – Orchard Dental, Carlingford NSW

Specification Notes

Depth-of-field (DoF) – achievable DoF will vary according to:

  • Eye accommodation capability
  • Working distance; longer working distance = longer DoF

Field Size (FS) – achievable FS will vary according to:

  • How close the ocular is to the eye
  • Working Distance; longer working distance = more FS

Interchangeable Working Distance Caps

  • You can make minor adjustments to the working distance on your SurgiTel Expanded Field Loupes by changing the working distance caps at the end of the loupe oculars.

Eye Prescriptions

  • If you use any kind of prescriptive or corrective lenses (distance, reading, “pharmacy readers”), an Aero frame or ComfortFlex MUST be selected in order for your local optometrist to supply and install your prescription lenses. Not incorporating your prescription will prevent the loupes from performing to specification.
  • The only exception to this is where the user elects to wear contact lenses.


  • Telescope, Oculars: Limited lifetime
  • Telescope, Assembly parts: Limited lifetime
  • Aero Titanium Frame: 3 years
  • Oakley Frames: 1 year
