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. 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.
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.
