MAITLAND, Fla., October 11, 2016 – Vmax Vision™, the first and only medical instrument company to use Point Spread Function technology in objective and subjective refractions, introduces a most ground breaking piece of technology yet -- The Voice Activ™ Subjective Refractor, or VASR™.

VASR encompasses all of the advanced features of the Perfectus™, which combines a wavefront autorefractor with subjective point spread function (PSF) refraction. VASR is unique to the eyecare world because it is a patient self-refracting instrument. Computer generated Artificial Intelligence reliably guides the patient through the exam process, discarding results that are not consistent and alerting the ...

By David Geffen, OD, La Jolla, Calif.

In optometry school, we are well trained in optics and the art of using the phoropter to subjectively refract our patients. Part of this training includes learning to perform binocular balancing. While this is something that must be done in the majority of patients, we have been able to almost eliminate it as the result of adopting a new technology that uses point-spread-function to obtain a subjective refraction and increased visual acuity.

Why it’s needed

Binocular balancing is the step in subjective refractions that involves matching the accommodative stimulus for the two eyes. It also has a secondary purpose in that it relaxes the accommodation as a result of both eyes being open. In additi...

Section 179 is the part of the tax code dealing with the depreciation of newly purchased capital equipment. Business owners have the choice of deducting part or all of the cost of this equipment in the year it is placed into service. How much of this up-front depreciation to use immediately is totally up to the owner within the boundaries of tax law. However, the amount to deduct for maximum advantage depends on many factors, including current year profits, projected future profits, predicted growth and desired cash flow.

Suppose you purchase a new full sized X-ray machine for $100,000 and place it into service on March 1st. Most medical equipment is depreciated over five years in the tax code, regardless of how long it actually lasts. T...

Eyes are extremely delicate organs, but it’s easy to forget to properly care for them during the winter months. Summer time is the time most people associate with bright sun and irritants like sand or chlorinated pool water, but winter can hide just as many hazards. In order to help protect you and your family’s eyes this winter, follow these three easy tips:

1) Wear the right eye protection.

Whether you’re eager to hit the slopes this winter, or just enjoy cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or hiking, don’t forget wear a set of sport sunglasses or goggles with polarized lenses. Snow has a nasty tendency to reflect sunlight, which means that being outdoors with snow on the ground means your eyes are getting an ext...

Significantly Shorter Refraction Training Time

Increase office efficiency with the PSF Refractor™. Training time is significantly reduced compared to the traditional phoropter, which typically takes 6-9 months.The PSF Refractor enables an accelerated transition in the latest in eye-care technology, technician delegation*,and a more productive practice.

Voice Guided Refraction

With the PSF Refractor’s new Voice Guided Instruction, refractionists can learn how to refract in just 2-3 days and master it in a few short weeks. The Voice Guided Instruction audibly guides the patient through each refraction test while simultaneously visually guiding the refractionist’s responses.

Long Term Training

Vmax Vision is dedicated in p...
