Louis Stone (Optical) has launched the new Oculus UB 6 – the first-ever six-lens holding universal trial frame.

The company has called the new development ‘the Godfather of all trial frames,’ highlighting its revolutionary design that is said to be ideal for refraction, with simple handling and optimal wearing comfort for patients.

Louis Stone Optical managing director, Paul Gaba, told OT: “This is a groundbreaking instrument with an even more efficient design as a result of the 100 years’ experience of its maker.

“Made of the finest materials, it has four front slots, two back slots and is crafted by hand,” he added.

Louis Stone is launching the universal trial frame at a special release price until 31 December. Free delivery is available to all UK mainland businesses, universities and hospitals.
