The purpose of Pediatric Autorefraction is to provide a baseline refraction

Plusoptix has designed handheld autorefractors for babies, children and uncooperative patients that measure the refraction of both eyes (binocular) from one meter distance within one second. The purpose of a measurement with the Plusoptix Pediatric autorefractor is to provide a baseline refraction as entry examination in the doctor’s office.

In combination with other entry examination tests an eye care professional is able to determine the scope of the following eye examination. If a cycloplegic retinoscopy is required, the baseline refraction provides a valuable starting point for myopia, astigmatism and axis measurements, thus saving precious chair time.

With the possibility of connecting the device to your EMR system, various other options of documenting the measurement results, while maintaining high demands in product quality and customer service, allows Plusoptix Pediatric autorefractors to deliver an optimal solution for fast and uncomplicated entry examinations in your office.

  • 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 Assistant
  • 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 help of the measurement picture it is also possible to detect cataracts or corneal scars.
