The purpose of a Plusoptix vision screening device is to empower Pediatricians, Headstarts, Lions Clubs, and School nurses to detect the most prevalent vision disorders in children as early as possible. The earlier a vision disorder is detected the better it can be treated, and Amblyopia, i.e. a lazy eye, can be prevented.
Plusoptix Vision Screeners use the measuring principle of a transillumination test. Unlike other transillumination tests (e.g. Red Reflex test), Plusoptix devices avoid glare of the patient, by using infrared light. The pupils remain large even without dilation.
A Plusoptix Vision Screener is the missing piece for AAP compliance and reimbursement options, because it meets the guidelines of AAP Policy statement and is eligible for CPT Code 99177 reimbursement (for Pediatricians) and LCIF Grant Funding (for Lions Clubs).
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.
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.
The Plusoptix device has played a pivotal role in streamlining our process, making screening more effective and efficient.
