Vision-R 800 Refraction System
Entering a new era of refraction:
Offering your patients the best of their vision
For many years, subjective refraction techniques have hardly changed. Today, Vision-R 800 phoropter offers continuous power changes and makes refraction more precise, easier to perform for the practitioner and more comfortable for the patient!
- Patented-optical module allows for instant focus and exact refraction.
- Performing refraction with “Smart Tests” is very easy, quick, and accurate.
- Evaluating refraction in simulated real-life conditions makes patients more confident.
A MORE ACCURATE PHOROPTER…
Vision-R 800’s exclusive optical module controls powers at 0.01 D and delivers continuous and instantaneous changes of sphere, cylinder and axis, at the same time. Refraction is made more accurate and prescriptions can be made in 0.05 D steps. Patients can now get the full potential of their vision!
…FOR A MORE PRECISE REFRACTION
AN EASIER PROCEDURE FOR THE PRACTITIONER…
Thanks to its continuous and simultaneous changes of the sphere power, cylinder axis and cylinder power, Vision-R 800 phoropter enables reaching the final refraction more quickly than the traditional refraction methods. In addition, “Smart Tests” and their unique algorithms assist the practitioner in conducting the whole refraction procedure. Refraction is made both very easy and very accurate!
…FOR A FULLY-RELIABLE PRESCRIPTION
A MORE COMFORTABLE EXPERIENCE FOR THE PATIENT…
Smooth power changes and wider field of vision make refraction very comfortable for the patients. The procedure is shorter and no fatigue is experienced. Answers are made easier to give all along the refraction procedure. At the end, Vision-R 800 phoropter offers the opportunity to compare refractions in a customized immersive real-life scenario. A fascinating experience for the patients!
…FOR COMPLETE CONFIDENCE
It will be available to the Essilor Experts in 2019, but will it be available to the non-EE accounts and when?
We do not know of the launch timing to non-Essilor Experts accounts at the moment.
Prescriptions can be made in .01 D steps, but can lenses be ordered to this accuracy?
Not yet in the U.S. but we expect the technology to be available at the time of the launch in 2019 to allow for the ordering of the lenses to this high level of accuracy.
Vision-R 800 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.
