Like any physician practising in this age of rapidly evolving medical technology, modern optometrists and ophthalmologists understand the importance of continually upgrading their equipment to meet the needs of their patients.
Not only does implementing the latest optical software and technology safeguard your patients’ health and ensure the accuracy of their diagnoses, but it also improves the internal operations of your practice and allows you to generate more revenue through efficiency.
In fact, just by adding a Veatch Digital Refraction Suite to their practice, doctors report seeing up to 5 more patients per room per day.
What is the Veatch Digital Refraction Suite?
Whether your goal is to delegate more of the refraction process, speed up exam times, or eliminate the pain of manual refraction, a Veatch Digital Refraction Suite is the answer. A full suite of products designed to digitize your exam process, it includes four key pieces of equipment guaranteed to eliminate costly inefficiencies and increase revenue.
1. Potec PDR-7000 Digital Refractor
The Potec PDR-7000 Digital Refractor has been redesigned to be smaller and slimmer, with logical tactical buttons and a 10.4” color touchscreen for ease of use. Features like the dual cross cylinder, programmable exam sequences, and a wireless interface with pre-test equipment are designed to increase efficiency.
2. Potec PRK-8000 Auto Refractor/Keratometer
The Potec PRK-8000 Auto Refractor/Keratometer provides an extensive dioptric measurement range [-300 to +250] compared to the previous model, and the radius of curvature for keratometry is 5.0 mm to 13.0 mm. Easy alignment and friendly operation allows doctors to measure refraction and keratometry in sequence, and results are validated immediately.
3. Potec PLC-8000 Visual Acuity System
The Potec PLC-8000 Visual Acuity System features a high-resolution, 19” LCD monitor for better clarity and accuracy. Its sleek, modern design allows for easy wall mount installation, and it comes with a wide range of popular charts. Additional features include slideshow functionality, adjustable testing distance, and a simple, user-friendly remote and functions.
4. Potec PLM-8000 Auto Lensmeter
The Potec PLM-8000 Auto Lensmeter features Shack-Hartmann Wavefront Sensor (SHWFS) technology for reduced errors and more accurate values. It includes functions to measure UV/blue light transmittance as well as a 7” LCD touchscreen for data display in real time. The Potec PLM-8000 connects to other devices for optimal convenience, and a built-in printer allows doctors to easily print measurement data.
Why upgrade to a Veatch Digital Refraction Suite?
Every movement—from dialing in a previous refraction to manually changing a visual acuity chart or typing data into a patient file—is time that can be saved during an exam by upgrading to digital equipment.
One of the primary benefits of the Veatch Digital Refraction Suite is improved accuracy. Advanced technology reduces the risk for human inaccuracy and results in precise measurements that greatly reduce prescription errors.
Second, digital refraction lessens the risk of repetitive motion injuries and preserves the physical well-being of vision care practitioners.
The Veatch Digital Refraction Suite also accelerates the process of gathering patient data by directly importing exam results into your existing EHR software, thereby eliminating the risk for transposition errors. Furthermore, patient historical data is readily available, allowing for easy comparisons between old and new prescriptions.
Finally, upgrading to digital refraction equipment allows doctors to see more patients over the course of a day, which in turn improves efficiency and increases revenue over time.
