Stereo Optical Adds New Tests to Its All-in-One Digital Vision Screener
OPTEC PLUS now enables even more comprehensive pre-testing
Dallas, TX, Stereo Optical, a division of Essilor Instruments, today announced the release of new tests for OPTEC® PLUS. OPTEC PLUS is a smart vision screener that includes an extensive library of tests administered with a user-friendly interface in a single machine. The glare recovery test and existing tests under the new glare condition have now been added to the software. They are useful for quantifying vision loss under the glare condition caused by cataracts or a corneal scar. These tests may now be integrated into customized protocols to allow for even more comprehensive pre-testing to improve practice flow.
“Since its introduction late 2016, OPTEC PLUS has been very well-received by professionals performing vision screening. This portable digital device lets ECPs better gauge patients’ visual performance and enhances the patient experience and practice perception. With even more functionality, we feel that OPTEC PLUS will change the way people think about vision screening to include comprehensive pre-testing for specific patient types,” said Damien Rousseau, CEO of Essilor Instruments USA.
