Automated Subjective Refraction

Provide your patients with a vision testing experience that exceeds their expectations

Combine ZEISS refraction instruments to perform an examination room experience that delivers highly precise results your patient can trust. With the ZEISS subjective refraction unit you can create a stress-free environment and save chair time at the same time.

As an eye care professional, your patients expect you to provide them with the best vision based on accurate refraction. However, this process demands a high level of trust and can lead to uncertainty in the prescription. Supported by advanced vision testing technology by ZEISS, you can transform the refraction process into an event, removing doubts and turning a stressful situation into a pleasant patient experience.

Therefore, start your subjective refraction by transferring the prescription generated by the i.Profiler® plus from ZEISS, to the ZEISS VISUPHOR 500, providing smooth vision testing. Utilise the convincing benefits offered by lenses with i.Scription® technology by ZEISS, provided by the subjective refraction unit and guide your patient to new lenses and better vision right in the examination room.

Modern and precise ZEISS vision testing at its best in one unit

With the digital subjective refraction unit by ZEISS, eye examination becomes an interesting and at the same time comprehensive experience of vision improvement for the patient by combining the central elements, vision testing charts and phoropter, in a smart solution.

ZEISS VISUSCREEN 500 with Polatest® technology comes with a variety of vision tests to perform monocular and binocular testing with different test charts, as well as special tests for children. Demonstrate the effect of the lenses with ZEISS i.Scription technology using the integrated LED. In addition to the IR-remote control the ZEISS VISUSCREEN 500 can be operated via an intuitive iPad® tablet or PC application for a fast and easy way to switch between test charts.

Personal workflows allow the compilation of different test chart sequences based on the individual preferences of various examiners. ZEISS VISUSCREEN 500 can be easily combined and upgraded with ZEISS VISUPHOR 500, a digital phoropter to streamline your examination workflow and create a professional impression for your patient.

The full integration into ZEISS VISUCONSULT 500 closes the loop between your devices by transmitting your patient’s measurements from the VISULENS® 550 lens-meter by ZEISS and ZEISS i.Profiler plus or VISUREF® 150 autorefractors by ZEISS directly to your subjective refraction unit, providing a straightforward and quick way to initiate your manifest refraction.
