Manual and digital refractors are both tools used to detect and correct refractive error by determining patient prescriptions.
Both manual and digital systems require highly trained, educated and experienced ophthalmic professionals to conduct the refraction test. However, the three primary components of manual and digital refractors are quite different:
With system integration, all data is automatically synched to each piece of equipment and recorded to the patient’s digital file, completely eliminating multiple entries.
Digital refractors follow the same process as manual—except these adjustments are controlled from one digital panel. So, ophthalmic professionals can stay seated in one place and focus on speaking directly to the patient. Once the right combination has been selected, the prescription is automatically updated and saved to the patient’s file from the digital system—no more repetitive entries.
The components of digital refractors utilize the same diagnostic parts, such as cylinder power and sphere power, but are controlled with more advanced technology, including:
