Adaptica Updates Software for 2Win Portable Refractometer and Vision Analyzer


Product: 2Win rev 3.2 and corneal reflexes analyzer
Top Line: Adaptica, the Italy-based maker of technology products based on adaptive optics, announces the release of the new 2Win rev 3.2, the portable binocular refractometer and vision analyzer that delivers an accurate, complete and objective assessment of the visual function.
Close Up: Working in natural binocular conditions at the distance of one meter (3 feet), the 2Win allows you to measure refractive errors, direction of gaze, pupil diameter, pupil distance and the balance between the two eyes, making it an all in one process that is easy and effective for both practitioners and patients. This device and is particularly helpful for use with infants, children, the elderly and non-cooperative patients. The 2Win is also effective in over-refracting patients with spectacles and contact lenses to check the optimal correction. “The new 2Win 3.2 is fast and easy to use as never before. Thanks to a number of software improvements we have remarkably increased the ease of use and facilitated the learning process,” said Gianluigi Meneghini, CEO of Adaptica. “The new version is fast and accurate—the acquisition time is only one second now. In addition, now it is available in a software package that provides complete information regarding the position of corneal reflexes through the use of an electronic cover test. The 2Win now measures sight anomalies that may be related to phorias and tropias expressed either in prism diopters or degrees. You can install this software to any 2Win, new ones or already sold in the market.”
Key benefits of the 2Win include its light weight, full automation, long battery operation and WiFi connectivity. Exam time is only a few seconds; it does not require dilating drops and is non-invasive. The 2Win is in use throughout the world and is sold directly by Adaptica and by many national distributors.

New Zeiss App Helps ECPs Identify Digital Eye Strain


Product: ECP App for Identifying Digital Eye Strain
Top Line: Zeiss has developed a free downloadable app to help ECPs identify patients with symptoms of Digital Eye Strain, and support sales of the new Zeiss Digital Lens. “According to the Vision Council, 70 percent of U.S. adults have symptoms of digital eye strain,” said Claude Labeeuw, VP marketing for Zeiss Vision Care North America. However, most are unaware that these symptoms can be addressed with the right eyeglass lenses. This app gives an initial indication that the patient is experiencing symptoms, and helps ECPs start a conversation about how to address them with solutions like Zeiss Digital Lens.”
Close Up: The app exists in two distinct versions; one is tablet-based and designed for use in the practice, and the other is smartphone-based and can be downloaded directly by consumers. Each measures visual performance in the course of repeated changes of focus from near to distance, with an assessment provided at the end. The consumer version gives the user the opportunity to learn more about Zeiss Digital Lens, and to find a Zeiss practice in his or her area. “Zeiss Digital Lens is designed for the vision needs of Millennials—roughly ages 20 to 35,” added Labeeuw. “This is the group that makes the greatest use of digital devices, and also has the highest incidence of digital eye strain symptoms. This app provides an effective way of reaching this age group and supporting our ECP customers.”
Vital Stats: The ECP app is available for download at www.zeiss.com/digitallens. The consumer version is available from  iTunes and Google Play.

New Tool From WOS Mates Eyewire Curve to Base Curve of Lens Bevel


Product: Eyewire Curving Press
Top Line: According to Western Optical Supply, its latest tool, the Eyewire Curving Press #7080, is “the ideal way to perfectly mate the curve of the eyewire to the base curve of the lens bevel.”
Close Up: The ECP presses the curve simultaneously in the same place on the top and bottom of the eyewire. Place the eyewire between the matching 6 or 9 base curved blocks and screw closed. Tighten less for other variations in base curves. The ECP is also used to narrow the bridge for a better fit and to reduce the frame DBL. 3"w x 7.5"h x 3.25"d.
Vital Stats: The Eyewire Curving Press #7080 can be seen on the Western website, where you can watch a live demonstration (Western Optical Live! page 30). www.westernoptical.com; (800) 423-3294
