Loupes & Headlights


Always store the loupes and illuminators in their protective case.

Do not place the loupes on a hard surface with the optics in contact with the surface itself to avoid stress on the optics.

Never grab the loupes by the binoculars, but always and only by the frame to avoid compromising the attachment of the optics.



1. Use the provided microfiber cloth to clean the lenses.

Tests performed in the Univet laboratory

Through a series of experimental tests carried out in their internal laboratory and according to dedicated test methods, Univet has studied the compatibility of Loupes and Headlights with exposure to the main active ingredients recommended for disinfection.

Internal studies were conducted by applying a brief exposure to the substance with a repeated number of cycles. Since these tests are continuously updated and evolving, information may be revised to include new substances with different test methods. Therefore, it is advisable to visit the page frequently to stay updated.


Tested substances and testing method

From the analyses based on the conducted tests, we can suggest the products listed in the table below.

It is important that after exposure, the substance used is completely removed to prevent its accumulation on the device, which over time can lead to degradation and/or unexpected breakage. If necessary, proceed to use a cloth dampened with water. Avoid immersing the device in water or other liquids.

Finally, complete a thorough drying operation, avoiding the presence of possible liquid accumulations in the eyewear's geometries.


The choice of the appropriate disinfection protocol and product varies depending on the nature of the contaminant and should be addressed by the user within the framework of the specific risk assessment in the working environment.

This document therefore only analyzes the compatibility of the products listed in Table 1 with the Loupes and Headlights devices made by Univet for this specific scope of use.

Note that other types of disinfectants may damage the product.

Manufacturers of disinfectants may undergo changes over time, both in terms of substances and percentages used; consequently, Univet is not responsible for such variations. Always check that the product and its composition are suitable for your use.


Tips for proper product control

It is essential to always check the product's condition both before and after exposure to the specific substance, as well as before use. Instances of damage or wear, which may occur due to the normal use of the product, can lead to a different result from what is indicated in this document, and consequently, premature breakage due to the combined action of the substance and the damaged product.
