07:40 pm - Boston
So I'm going to Boston for work Tuesday through Thursday. I will be at Boston University helping with the student measurements. In case you didn't know, loupes require several measurements, interpupulary distance, vertical position (how high or low the loupes should sit), headwidth (for a coupe of our designer frames, and working distance.

I've never been there before.

Yes like that. I'm in customer service and do a bit of house sales. I also write procedures.

I work for General Scientific Corp. The trade name is SurgiTel.

Loupe is French for magnifying glasses. Basically they are glasses with little telescopes on them or built into them. We sell mostly to dentists, hygienists and dental students, although we are making strong inroads into the medical field.

Here's the website

Rod, I make jewelry. I know what loupes are- I even have a couple. :-) Mine aren't attached to my glasses or anything like that, though.

Those look more medical than jewelry-oriented, though, & I suspect are priced accordingly.

Darn, I was hoping you were working for the folks that sell the nifty magnifying glasses Tom Muir was showing us at his workshop. Not that I can afford a $300 pair of loupe glasses but they were pretty cool.

Yeah my company sells loupes mostly to dentists, hygienists, and medical surgeons. The start at $1,245.

Although I did have a goldsmith in Washington state ask for a catalog.
