Eyefficient Introduces Medizs 2013 Smart RK 11 Auto Refractor/Keratometer
Product: Medizs 2013 Smart RK 11 Auto Refractor/Keratometer
Top Line: Eyefficient is now distributing the Medizs 2013 Smart RK 11 Auto Refractor/Keratometer.
Close up: Light reflected from the retina and passed through the cornea is divided into six rays, using separation filter and prism, to accurately measure the refractive power of each one. The automatic vertical tracking and horizontal movement-inducing functions enable users to find the exact center of a pupil easily and quickly. The unit automatically detects the brightness of the room to provide the best environment for examination, and allows users to minutely fasten or loosen the instrument while capturing an image. PD values are instantly and conveniently measured by a PD indicating ruler. The gun-type joystick is ergonomically designed with a comfortable grip that allows quick, accurate measurement of image shooting. An easily adjustable chinrest is button-controlled, and located on the instrument’s body. Target brightness control aids small pupil measurements; less target brightness makes the small pupil larger, yielding a reliable measurement result. All relevant data are sent directly to the EMR of Medizs application via Bluetooth. EMR system provides effective management of all measurement data efficiency, as well as an enhanced workflow.
