About Mellins i-Style

Mellins i-Style is a leading national optometry group with 55 Vision Centres nationwide who offer advanced eye examinations, informative before and after-care services, and customised precision eye technology with optically advanced Zeiss products.

Is your vision as good as it can be? Having a Zeiss Experience eye test with the latest in advanced eye technology at one of the 55 Mellins-Zeiss Vision Centres nationwide is like stepping into the future. Until recently, eye testing technology remained virtually unchanged for the last century. Today with the Mellins Zeiss Vision Centres’ advanced eye testing technology from Zeiss, outstanding service and a wide selection of leading eyewear brands for spectacles and sunglasses, you can be assured of good eye health and precise, customised vision.

During the innovative eye test, the Zeiss i.Profiler reads your eyes like a “fingerprint” and digitally maps 2500 points on each eye in under 90 seconds. This enables our optometrists to determine your prescription to the nearest 0.01, instead of 0.25 as in older eye tests.

The customised precision technology enables Zeiss to manufacture arguably the most individualised lenses in the world, namely Zeiss i.Scription. According to Zeiss this level of customisation results in the production of lenses that are able to improve night and twilight vision by up to 30% and reduce irritating reflections or halo effects. You will also get improved colour vision and contrast and a generally clearer image.

The last step in the Zeiss Experience is about how the lenses fit the spectacle frame and the effect of the positioning and shape of the frame on your lenses. Lens-fitting errors can reduce optical performance by up to 40 percent, so in this step the lenses are optimally positioned.

One also gets to choose the optimal lens thickness for your prescription. The days of thick and bulky “bottle” lenses are therefore over! Your lenses can now be up to 50 percent thinner and lighter and all Zeiss lenses come with a UV protective coating as standard. The lenses can however be customised further with lenses that will darken in the sun and lighten when indoors, or one can opt for an anti-reflective coating that specifically reduces glare from LEDs, TVs, computers and tablet screens.
