Plusoptix provides binocular, hand-held vision screening devices, especially for infants, children and uncooperative patients.
Studies show that the best visual outcomes depend on the early detection and treatment of vision disorders. Therefore, paediatric ophthalmologists recommend annual vision screening for all children starting ideally at the age of one year. If there is a family history of eye disorders, earlier screening is advised at the age of 6 to 8 months old.
Conventional visual acuity testing can only be performed in older, cooperative children.
Two healthy eyes are critical to a child’s well-being and development. A visual disorder compromises social and scholastic achievement, can be dangerous in traffic and restrict occupational choices later in life.
The Plusoptix device provides an accurate measurement within seconds. Measurement results are compared to age-specific thresholds, and a “Pass” or “Refer” vision screening result is displayed.
A “Refer” vision screening result will mean the patient should consult an eye care professional for further advice.
