Essilor has announced plans to launch a new compact Vision Station at 100% Optical Online 2021, to be held on 23 – 24 May.

The device features an all-in-one design and can be operated through a keypad from a distance of up to seven metres.

Paul Cumber, Essilor Ltd instruments director, said: “We’re looking forward to introducing the brand-new Vision-S 700, which promises to provide an immersive experience that patients are guaranteed to remember.”

The company suggests the device can enable a refraction to be carried out in three minutes, whilst maintaining academic accuracy, in order to support increased productivity.

This is achieved through a series of smart programmes and algorithms, which, by recording the patient’s answers, enable automatic calculation of the refraction result. The company explained that continuous and smaller-increment possibilities and secured automatic protocol contribute to greater accuracy.

“We’ll also be reminding attendees about our innovative equipment to diagnose and treat dry eye disease in practice as we recognise this is an emerging growth area to maximise this year,” Cumber continued.

The company encouraged eye care professionals (ECPs) to book an appointment through the 100% Optical portal to find out more. 

Attendees of 100% Optical Online will be able to sign up for two Essilor-sponsored webinars as part of the CET programme on 23 May.

Dominique Meslin, director of professional relations and technical affairs for Essilor Europe, will lead the session: A new approach to subjective refraction, while Nick Dash, an optometric director at the Matrix Eye Clinic, will present on Dry eye in the digital age.

The company has also recently introduced new CET content to its own E-Academy platform.

The new modules include an article covering the links between dementia and sight loss and how practitioners can help to provide suitable care and solutions. Another new module will explore the term blue light, including what it is, how to differentiate between the types, and how it does not necessarily pose a potential danger to vision and ocular health.

Dr Andy Hepworth, professional relations manager at Essilor Ltd, suggested that following the disruption of the past year, the company hoped the content would support ECPs to gain their CET points.
