The plusoptiX vision screener is designed to be as easy to use and as portable as possible. This pediatric vision screener can detect the most prevalent vision disorders that may lead to amblyopia (lazy eye) and is simple enough to be used by non-medical staff and volunteers. Readings take less than a second, checking both eyes with a single test. This model doesn’t support wireless connections, nor does it save patient information. All it does is check the measurements against age-specific thresholds and gives a “pass” or “refer” result. After this initial scan, patients who receive a “refer” result can be sent to an ophthalmic technician for further testing. The Plusoptix S12R can save results to an SD card, and it supports direct printing with an optional IR printer. It’s powered by six rechargeable AA batteries, which are included.
The hand-held plusoptiX S12R mobile screening is simple to use, takes less than one second and can be performed by non-medical staff or volunteers with the easy push of a button.

HOTV critical line testing feature, enables users to perform a critical line distance visual acuity testing based on the 10/16 line
Measurement results are compared to age specific thresholds and a “Pass” or “Refer” vision screening result is displayed (“Refer” vision screening result need to be sent to an eye care professional for an eye examination).
SE - The Spherical equivalent is portrayed instead of the sphere, to assure that the referral criteria can be used independently from the cylinder adjustment in settings. The Spherical equivalent is defined as “Sphere + ½ Cylinder"
