Essilor Instruments USA Launches Vision-S 700 Refraction Station

A space saver and game changer with speed and accuracy built on exclusive innovation

Dallas, TX, Essilor Instruments today announced the launch of the Vision-S 700 refraction station that offers a high degree of accuracy with rapid 3-minute refractions and concentrates a complete refraction experience into an immersive station, while offering patients a totally new sense of involvement. Consisting of a stand-alone, ultra-compact tabletop subjective refraction unit, the Vision-S 700 refraction station incorporates the patented Digital Infinite Refraction method and optical module. On top of its space-saving feature, the Essilor-exclusive immersive imaging technology places the patient in a life-like image and simulates real-life conditions. Vision-S 700 gives the patient a unique refraction experience that can potentially drive traffic, differentiate the practice, facilitate the discussions about complimentary pairs with patients, and transform the overall business potential.

In addition, the unique features of Vision-S 700 can potentially serve as the ultimate platform for teleoptometry. The optometrist does not need to be in close proximity to the patient to adjust the monocular pupillary distance or vertex distance, and the patient position is easily monitored. The automated Smart programs and algorithms guide the practitioner from start to finish offering efficiency. The silent and smooth lens changes, ability to incorporate a patient response of “I don’t know/they appear equal,” and simulated comparisons can enhance patient comfort and confidence in the prescription. Vision-S 700 will be able to allow optometrists to continue to expand safe and efficient services started with COVID, and continue with the convenience and efficiency their patients are asking for, while offering expansion opportunities for the practice without new brick and mortar encumbrances.

“We are excited to introduce the revolutionary patented Vision-S 700 refraction station as a new addition to the innovative ophthalmic product line of Essilor Instruments. Vision-S 700 was developed through years of research, and is manufactured exclusively by Essilor Instruments. The immersive experience of Vision-S 700 makes it a game changer for patients, giving eye care professionals the potential to increase refraction capacity dramatically and boost practice growth without having to remodel the practice,” said Jean-Christophe Paris, Senior Vice President, Essilor Instruments Americas.

Eye care professionals are encouraged to contact Essilor Instruments to obtain details on the Vision-S 700 refraction station. Multiple units will be available for demonstrations at the Essilor Instruments booth (#F11065) at Vision Expo West Las Vegas from September 23 to 25.

Introducing Vision-R 700 Refraction System with Unique Optical Module

March 23, 2021

Essilor Instruments USA Launches New Vision-R 700 Refraction System

Breakthrough technology for fast, accurate, and easy-to-perform refractions

Dallas, TX, Essilor Instruments today announced the launch of the Vision-R 700 refraction system that revolutionizes the refraction process, improves practice productivity, and enhances the patient experience. Vision-R 700 uses a unique optical module with variable focus in combination with an exclusive new patented technology, Digital Infinite RefractionTM. The simultaneous and continuous variations of the sphere power, cylinder axis and cylinder power make it possible to offer a new cylinder-search method based on a vectorial approach to refraction. Combined with the properties of a very precisely-controlled optical module that is integrated into refraction-search algorithms, Digital Infinite Refraction offers great scope for advancements in refraction methods.

In addition, the unique features of Vision-R 700 can serve as the ultimate platform for teleoptometry. The optometrist does not need to be in close proximity to the patient to adjust the monocular pupillary distance or vertex distance, and the patient position is easily monitored. The automated Smart programs and algorithms guide the practitioner from start to finish offering efficiency. The silent and smooth lens changes, ability to incorporate a patient response of ‘Don’t Know,’ and simulated comparisons will enhance patient comfort and confidence in the prescription.

“We are excited to introduce the state-of-the-art Vision-R 700 refraction system as a new addition to the innovative ophthalmic product line of Essilor Instruments. Vision-R 700 was developed through years of research and is manufactured exclusively by Essilor. The advanced technology is dramatically different from other auto-phoropters on the market. Vision-R 700 will help eye care professionals grow their business through a superior patient experience and valuable time spent with patients after refractions to discuss lens and treatment options,” said Jean-Christophe Paris, Senior Vice President, Essilor Instruments Americas.

Eye care professionals are encouraged to contact Essilor Instruments to obtain details on the Vision-R 700 refraction system or make an appointment for a demonstration.

Essilor of America Announces AVA

Essilor of America Announces AVA (Advanced Vision Accuracy)

Powered by Essilor’s lens designs and an innovative new phoropter, the Vision-R™ 800 by Essilor Instruments, this integrated solution will offer digital accuracy both in exam and prescription within 1/100th of diopter. 

Vision-R 800

NEW YORK – March 22, 2019 – Essilor of America announced today the launch of AVA (Advanced Vision Accuracy), an integrated solution for eye care professionals enabled by the introduction of the new phoropter, the Vision-R™ 800 by Essilor Instruments. For the first time, this integrated offer will include breakthrough refraction technology, innovative user-friendly intelligence and premium advanced lenses which will give eye care professionals the ability to demonstrate and deliver the best vision possible for patients.

“At Essilor we are committed to giving eye care professionals an opportunity to differentiate themselves and their practices with our cutting-edge technology and revolutionary patient care solutions,” says Rick Gadd, president of Essilor of America. “The AVA solution integrates the new advanced phoropter and our best digital lens designs, to equip eye care professionals with the complete package, making the refraction more efficient, the prescription more precise, and the overall experience better for the patient.”

The new phoropter, the Vision-R™ 800, introduced by Essilor Instruments, represents a major advancement in refraction techniques, which have remained unchanged for nearly a century. This new advanced phoropter introduces a whole new standard of accuracy while maintaining an efficient and consistent refraction.

“The Vision- R™ 800 phoropter is a perfect example of what Essilor does best: innovating to improve lives by improving sight,” says Samy Lauriette, senior vice president, Essilor Instruments Americas.

A MORE PRECISE REFRACTION

The Vision-R™ 800’s patented optical module allows for instant focus and exact refraction. It offers a refractive power of 0.01D steps and instantaneous changes of sphere, cylinder and axis at the same time for unparalleled accuracy. The precise Rx will be delivered through our best digital lens designs – Varilux® and Eyezen+, which will be available to be ordered to 0.01D in the second quarter of this year. The result is patients get the full potential of their vision.

A FULLY RELIABLE PRESCRIPTION

With the Vision-R™ 800, the refraction experience is transformed – for both the patient and the practitioner. The practitioner reaches the final refraction more quickly than with traditional methods thanks to the continuous and simultaneous changes of sphere power, cylinder axis and cylinder power. Also, the module’s “Smart Tests” algorithm assists the specialist in conducting the refraction procedure, making it both fast and easy, allowing the practitioner to focus on having a dialogue with the patient.

A MORE COMFORTABLE EXPERIENCE FOR THE PATIENT

The Vision-R™ 800 uses a revolutionary new liquid lens and a new refractive process that makes the experience more comfortable for the patient and less tedious for the doctor. The phoropter’s smooth power changes and wider field of vision allow for a shorter procedure with less fatigue for the patient and doctor. At the end of the test, the Vision-R™ 800 phoropter offers patients the experience of comparing refractions in simulated real life conditions.

“The ultra-precise Rx can be demonstrated as never before to the patient with a fascinating simulation-based experience. This should especially appeal to younger patients,” says Lauriette. “The result is a patient who leaves the exam room with full confidence. And by clearly seeing the improvement they are more likely to purchase new eyewear.”

“We’re the only company that can guarantee digital accuracy in both exams and prescriptions – with the world’s most advanced lenses in our Varilux and Eyezen+ designs that can be ordered to the 1/100th of diopter in prescription,” says Sherianne James, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Essilor of America. ”With this solution, eye care practitioners can deliver their patient’s best vision and equip them with an immediate demonstration of the power of precise lenses and the best visual acuity.”

AVAILABILITY

The AVA Integrated Solution is available to practitioners at Vision Expo East, with delivery starting eight weeks after ordering and subject to scheduling. The commercial launch is slated for July 2019.
