Advanced phoropter launched by Reichert Technologies
Enhancements and improvements ‘translate into more efficient eye examination process’
11 July 2016
Reichert Technologies has announced the commercial introduction of its advanced ‘Phoroptor VRx Digital Refraction System.’
Previewed at the International Vision Expo West and the American Academy of Ophthalmology conferences in 2014, the ‘Phoroptor VRx’ combines speed and technology to deliver “an incredibly fast refraction experience,” according to the company.
The system is designed to improve practice efficiency with an ergonomically arranged keypad and multi-functional knob, coupled with an intuitive user interface and tilting 10.4 inch touchscreen. The touchscreen also provides the operator with the flexibility to easily access any tests during the examination process.
The ‘Phoroptor VRx’ was designed, engineered and built from the ground up with input from eye care professionals.
It features premium motors for extremely fast and ultra-quiet lens exchanges, as well as new features like motorised prism compensators and a split cylinder lens to facilitate faster testing for astigmatic correction.
The enhancements and improvements are said by the company to translate into a more efficient eye examination process.
Senior product manager of lane and refraction equipment for Reichert, Joel Kozlowski, commented: “The Reichert name is synonymous with quality and excellence. It has been the leader in refraction technology since the invention of the phoroptor, I expect nothing less for the ‘Phoroptor VRx Digital Refraction System.’”
