ACCELERATE REFRACTION…WITHOUT COMPROMISING ON ACCURACY
A good refraction can take time, but more time can lead to less efficiency. Until now, the only way to shorten the traditional procedure of bracketing the sphere, cylinder and axis independently was by cutting crucial steps. This can result in bigger variances and an estimation of the prescription.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A BREAKTHROUGH IN REFRACTION TECHNOLOGY
Essilor developed a patented optical module that allows for a much smoother refraction process. This innovative technology incorporates a fast, multiple-increment algorithm to give you an exact refraction in a short period of time with a minimum increment of 0.12D adjustable to 0.12/0.25/0.50/1.00/2.00D. Furthermore, enhanced data communication with patient management systems makes for a seamless workflow across your practice.
1. FAST REFRACTION WITH SECURED ACCURACY
Outdated technology had eye care professionals believing that any increase in speed meant a decrease in accuracy. The Essilor Vision-R 700 automatic phoropter breaks this compromise.
Thanks to Digital Infinite Refraction, Vision-R 700 obtains a fast refraction in only three minutes, while securing accuracy.
With dedicated Smart Programs and algorithms, Vision-R 700 controls accuracy by using small and large increments of the continuous lens.
How does the Vision-R 700 phoropter redefine refraction?
SMART PROGRAMS AND ALGORITHMS
A series of patient-specific Smart Programs incorporating Digital Infinite Refraction shorten the procedure and assist in calculating the best endpoint for the patient.
This innovation allows for a fast and direct refraction method: Digital Infinite Refraction. Continuous compensation on the sphere, cylinder and axis ensures accuracy, as answers are based on compensated powers, eliminating the need for estimated lens compensation.
CONTINUOUS LENS POWER
Smooth and instant transitions between multiple dioptric powers eliminate unwanted stimuli and control accommodation.
VERTEX DISTANCE MEASUREMENT
Vertex distance is measured to the millimeter and controllable from a distance. Combined with the automatic compensation to the reference vertex distance, accuracy is controlled right to the end.
2. EASY TO PERFORM
The Vision-R 700 phoropter has been developed with ease of use and performance excellence as its starting points. The process is designed to guide the practitioner from start to finish. The eye care professional (ECP) only needs to record data, while the phoropter changes the dioptric values and relevant tests to achieve the final result.
What makes it easy to use with excellent results?
PROGRAM RECOMMENDATION FUNCTION
A Smart Program recommendation is made for each patient. Depending on the imported patient data, the ideal program is recommended by the phoropter.
SMART TESTS AND ALGORITHMS
Vision-R 700 comes with automated Smart Tests that assist the ECP when performing the refraction, making the phoropter truly user-friendly.
Algorithms change the tests and calculate the dioptric power in reaction to the patient’s answers.
The secure and guided procedure from start to finish ensures an accurate result, even in the hands of less experienced operators.
If needed, you can easily access a ‘Help’ function with details regarding the current test to help guide the ECP through the process.
3. IMPROVED PATIENT EXPERIENCE
The Vision-R 700 phoropter provides an excellent patient experience during refraction and eliminates the feeling of failing a test. Make the refraction experience remarkable through
A COMPACT DESIGN AND SILENT LENS CHANGES
A modern design functions as a showcase for innovative technology. Its compact size makes it easier to handle. Its silent lens changes minimize distractions.
A WIDER FIELD OF VISION
No superposition of lenses as is needed in traditional phoropters. The patient has a more natural field of vision and is more comfortable without the effect of tunnel vision.
EASIER TO ANSWER
The patient now has the option to report that he sees “no difference” or “doesn’t know which option is better.” The Smart Tests use this information to give accurate results. The guessing game is eliminated and patient confidence reassured.
An efficient and detailed comparison function, where multiple different scripts and scenarios can be compared at the click of a button. This allows the patient to imagine what to expect with the new prescription.
NO VISUAL FATIGUE
Thanks to the shorter process, the patient experiences less visual fatigue by providing fewer direct answers.

DIGITAL INFINITE REFRACTION: A MORE DIRECT ACCESS TO THE FINAL PRESCRIPTION
DIGITAL INFINITE REFRACTION IN ONLY ONLY 2 STEPS
Thanks to the optical module, the new Digital Infinite Refraction process automatically compensates for the effect that any change in the sphere, cylinder and axis has on one of the other dimensions. This leads directly to the final result, making it less labor-intensive for the patient and eye care professional (ECP). The simultaneous compensation of the dimensions makes each answer from the patient more relevant. The effect of each change is immediately taken into account; therefore the patient and ECP can make an informed decision.
TRADITIONAL REFRACTION: 4 STEPS REQUIRED
Traditionally, ECPs achieve the result by bracketing the sphere, cylinder and axis individually, even though these three dimensions affect one another. This requires the rechecking of the values by repeating the process to give an accurate result. The ECP also has to compensate for the sphere and then estimate the final result.

Different programs for different patients
Vision-R 700 makes refraction too easy; it takes the art out of it. Doesn’t this lessen the value of an OD?
It does not lessen the value of the OD. It does; however, create an environment where efficiency and repeatability are much easier to accomplish. It also aids in uniformity with multiple doctors.
Does it still use the standard Jackson Cross Cylinder for checking cylinder and axis?
Yes; however, it adjusts sphere, cylinder, and axis simultaneously, and it takes every answer into consideration, including “the same” or “I don’t know.”
What is the sphere and cylinder power range?
Sphere power of +/- 20 diopters and cylinder power to 8 diopters
Can you test in the same manner as a manual phoropter?
Yes, there is a full Manual mode.
Are there programmable tests?
Yes, there is the pre-programmed Smart Test and three slots are available for custom programming.
