Plusoptix A12C


Portable Binocular Autorefraction

Plusoptix has designed handheld autorefractors for babies, children and uncooperative patients that measure the refraction of both eyes (binocular) from a one-meter distance within one second. Used in un-dilated pupils, Plusoptix devices provide eye care professionals with a reliable baseline refraction in the context of an initial exam, to identify false-positive referrals.

If a cycloplegic retinoscopy is required, the baseline refraction provides a valuable starting point for myopia, astigmatism and axis measurements. Performing a cycloplegic retinoscopy with these measurements at hand is quick and easy, thus saving precious chair time.

With the possibility of connecting the device to your EMR system, there are a variety of ways to document the measurement results. Allowing for high demand in product quality and customer service, Plusoptix Vision Screeners provide an optimal solution for fast and uncomplicated Vision Screening in your office.

Basic features

  • Binocular readings with simultaneous measurement of both eyes
  • Monocular readings (e.g. in strabismic or aphacic patients)
  • Measurement from 1m (3.3 feet) distance to the child
  • Measurement in less than one second
  • Can be used in undilated pupils
  • Fully automated function
  • Children can be measured starting at 6 months of age
  • Measurement is delegable and can easily be performed by an ophthalmic technician
  • Possibility to measure over glasses and contact lenses
  • Can also be used in cycloplegia under certain conditions

Measurement results

  • Plusoptix devices provide reliable measurement values of:
  • Refraction (Sphere, Cylinder, Axis)
  • Pupil diameter and pupil distance
  • Symmetry of corneal reflexes
  • With these measurement values it is possible to detect e.g. following most prevalent childhood vision disorders that may lead to the development of amblyopia (lazy eye) including:
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Astigmatism (blurred vision)
  • Anisometropia (unequal refractive power)
  • Anisocoria (unequal pupil size)
  • Strabismus (Eye misalignment)
  • With the help of the measurement picture, it is also possible to detect cataracts or corneal scars.
