Accurate Detection with the Welch Allyn Autorefractor:
The Spot Vision Screener accurately detects potential indications of common vision problems such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, anisometropia, strabismus, and anisocoria. Accuracy refers to the sensitivity and specificity of the screening referral recommendation.
Binocular Vision Screening for Eye Care Professionals:
Eye care professionals can benefit from Spot's versatility as a vision screener. Its portability and fast binocular testing enable clinicians to gather accurate refractive data from patients who may present screening challenges. The device can be easily transported to various office locations, events, or mission trips. It efficiently tests individuals across different age groups, including infants, seniors, and patients with limited mobility. Spot provides instant results, including refractions in monocular or binocular measurements using plus (+) or minus (-) cylinder conventions. Additionally, it measures horizontal and vertical eye alignment, pupil size, and pupillary distance.
Clinically Shown Efficiency:
Studies have demonstrated the efficiency of using the Spot Vision Screener compared to traditional screening tools. In one study involving 537 elementary school students, traditional screening took three days, while the Spot Vision Screener completed the entire population screening in less than five hours. The device yielded definitive results for 100% of the students, with 93 of them referred for follow-up care with an eye care specialist.
The Spot Vision Screener offers a convenient and efficient solution for vision screening, providing accurate and reliable results. Its portability, ease of use, and ability to capture a wide range of vision data make it a valuable tool for healthcare professionals in various settings.
