    A Comparison of Three Different Photoscreeners in Children

    Reference:
    Journal of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus [29 May 2018:1-6]
    Results:

    "The photorefractometer method was beneficial in the measurement of refractive errors of school-aged children. The PlusoptiX A12 photorefractometer method may eliminate the need for cycloplegia in the detection of refractive errors in children."

    [Comparison of the results obtained from three non-cycloplegic handheld photorefractometers (plusoptiX A12, Retinomax K-plus 3 and Spot) with cycloplegic autorefractometry (Topcon KR-8100) measurement in children.]
