Understanding the Benefits of an Automated Phoropter

23 March 2021

The Vision-R 800 is an automated phoropter that helps you reach the final refraction much quicker than previous methods.
New technology is emerging all the time, making it much easier for tasks to be carried out efficiently. In the world of optometry, new technology can elevate your practice and help you to deliver the best possible eye care to your patients. Without investing in new optical equipment, you could run the risk of competitors striding ahead and leaving you behind.
 
With that in mind, it’s worth considering what optical instruments you should be investing in. One of the biggest innovations in recent years has been the introduction of automated instruments. In particular, our automated phoropters have created a revolutionary way of measuring patients’ vision.
 

Change the way you measure refraction

 
The Vision-R 800 is an automated phoropter that helps you reach the final refraction much quicker than previous methods. After years of research and development, we have come up with an instrument that can improve the process for both the patient and the eye care professional.
 
With a patented optical module, the Vision-R 800 can help you to offer a more precise, personalised service for each patient. So, what are the benefits of including an automated phoropter in your practice?
 

Increased accuracy

 
Traditional methods usually consist of refraction being measured in steps of 0.25D. The Vision-R 800 measures in increments of 0.01D using SMART algorithms, making the refraction more accurate than ever before.
 
The Vision-R 800 can measure sphere range from -20.00D to +20.00D in 0.01D increments, as well as cylinder range of 8.00D. The phoropter can also measure axis range from 0° to 180° in steps of 1°.
 
This results in the most precise refraction for your patients, leading to a much more personalised prescription for their lens solution.
 

Faster and smarter - a unique customer experience

 
Due to the automation of the phoropter’s processes, refraction can be measured much quicker than traditional methods. The Vision-R 800 will offer continuous and simultaneous changes of sphere, cylinder and axis power to help you reach the final refraction fast.
 
With smooth power changes and a wider field of vision, the refraction process is shortened without compromising on results. This can make the whole thing much more comfortable for your patients, and help you make the most of your time in the practice.
 

Socially distanced measurements

 
One of the features of an automated phoropter, that has become more important in recent months, is the ability to conduct its measurements from a distance. The Vision-R 800 allows you to carry out refraction measurements while maintaining social distancing, which is going to be crucial while we navigate our way out of the Covid-19 pandemic.
 
The Vision-R 800 can also provide simulated scenarios to help the patient compare refractions.
 
Keep you and your patients safe while providing optimal eye care, with automated functions that allow you to step back and let the equipment do its job. The Vision-R 800 can help you to create a fascinating experience, resulting in increased confidence in your practice and your eye care advice.
