What can the Vision-R 800 do for you?

The Vision-R 800 is an automated, accurate phoropter that can help you to reach the final refraction much quicker than traditional methods, complete with unique SMART algorithms to assist you during the procedure.

  • Patented automated optical module
  • Simultaneous and instantaneous changes of sphere, cylinder and axis
  • Wider field of view compared to standard phoropter
  • More accurate resulting in more precise prescriptions

Changing the way you measure refraction 


Traditional methods consist of the refraction values being measured in 0.25D steps. 
With the Vision-R 800 phoropter, refraction can be measured in 0.01D increments using unique SMART algorithms, giving you the most precise refraction for your patients..

 Making refraction more accurate, the Vision-R 800's back vertex camera can also measure to an accuracy of 0.5mm

  • Sphere range -20.00D to +20.00D in 0.01D increments
  • Cylinder range 8.00D in 0.01D increments
  • Axis range from 0° to 180° in 1° steps

Quicker and smarter refraction

The Vision-R 800 phoropter offers continuous and simultaneous changes of sphere power, cylinder axis and cylinder power. This enables the phoropter to reach the final refraction quicker than traditional methods. Smart tests and programmes can assist you in conducting the whole procedure, ensuring you’re able to give a fully reliable prescription for each patient you see.


Enhanced patient comfort

Thanks to the advanced features of Vision-R 800, the patient will experience smooth power changes and a wider field of vision. The refraction procedure is shorter, avoiding patient fatigue. What’s more, variation steps are adjusted to patient sensitivity, making differences easier to perceive and responses easier to give. At the end of the test, the Vision-R 800 phoropter can compare refractions in simulated real life scenarios, creating a fascinating experience for patients; instilling confidence in your practice and your advice.

Top 3 benefits of Vision-R 800 

  • A more accurate phoropter to create a more precise refraction
  • An easier procedure for the optometrist, resulting in a fully reliable prescription
  • A more comfortable experience for the patient, instilling complete confidence

"I have been extremely pleased by the amount of unprompted comments from my patients about how impressed they have been with both the Vision-R800 and Visioffice X. It has definitely enhanced my patient journey and experience."

Unlock the full potential of your patients' eyes. Give them the presciption they deserve.

Essilor’s latest research shows that 95% of people have more sensitive vision than the current correction steps of 0.25 dioptres.

As innovators Essilor has challenged long standing correction standards and took them to the next level.

After five years of scientific research and analysing more than 100,000 vision parameters, we have developed a breakthrough journey of high precision vision: AVA™, Advanced Vision Accuracy™.

AVA™ is based on two technological pillars:

• Vision - R 800; a new phoropter that includes a revolutionary optical module and a smart refraction programme for a final subjective refraction value delivered to 0.01D and delivering a unique patient experience.

• Premium lenses integrating this precise prescription. Position your practice at the leading edge of technology to differentiate your business.
