Topcon Healthcare Launches Automated Binocular Refraction System

Product: Chronos
Top Line: Topcon Healthcare is launching the Chronos Automated Binocular Refraction System with SightPilot guided refraction software.
Close Up: Topcon Chronos is a complete digital refraction solution that combines autorefraction, keratometry, and subjective refraction in a single device that occupies less than four feet of space. The fully automated system, which features the guided refraction software, SightPilot, can be easily operated by anyone in the practice. Furthermore, binocular testing means refractions take just three and a half minutes, allowing eye care providers to see more patients and grow their practice without adding exam lanes or trained technicians.
“Controlling Chronos from a tablet, laptop or desktop PC allows operation from a safe distance or another room,” states Corey Nielson, vice president of Topcon Medical Systems. “The one-touch operation and intuitive SightPilot software guides the operator through the entire refraction process with a simple user interface and on-screen prompts, enabling the practice to quickly and confidently complete the subjective refraction. Timing makes champions and Chronos enters the U.S. market at the perfect time, empowering eyecare physicians to offer safe and efficient exams for their patients and staff.”
Vital Stats: Chronos is also ADA compliant and simple to adjust. Whether seated, standing or in a wheelchair, its multi-function capabilities allow patients to complete the exam without moving to multiple instruments.
