The purpose of a Plusoptix Binocular autorefractor is to provide a baseline refraction in the context of an entry exam, to identify false-positive referrals. Plusoptix autorefractors use the measuring principle of the transillumination test. This measuring principle avoids glare of the patient by using infrared light. The pupils remain large even without dilation.
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.

Our newly acquired Plusoptix vision screener has made our vision screenings quick and portable. Allowing me to bring the device to the child or the child to the device. This is helpful when working with 3-5 year olds that might have a difficult time transitioning.
After receiving amazing technical support and helpful tips from the company’s representatives, we have been able to screen our groups more accurately and speedily.
I am giving PlusOptix 10/10 on customer service. It is really refreshing to see (basically) a tech company get it right for a change. Tammy, Richard, and Rebecca were generous with their time and attention, cared about my problems, and assured me they would be promptly addressed.
The Plusoptix is quick in capturing the vision screening result even with fidgety 3-5 year olds. When we have questions or need help with our machine, their service department is quick to respond and help."
There are other auto refractors out there but they cannot compete with the Plusoptix customer service!
The Plusoptix device has played a pivotal role in streamlining our process, making screening more effective and efficient.
I prefer Plusoptix - not just because you have been most generous in supporting Alaska screening, but also that you are honest and of highest scientific and ethical integrity.
Another successful Headstart screening today! The teachers and staff are so impressed how fast and easy our Plusoptix screener is. Screened 43 kids in less than 1/2 hour and that was with bringing 4 kids down at a time. All pediatrician offices should have one of these to screen kids as young as 6 months.
