Alignment options

Other than Plusoptix vision screening devices and Plusoptix binocular autorefractors this instrument is not designed for children age 6 months and older. Test person’s head need to be fixed in a chin rest. PowerRef 3 can be located outside of the line of sight by using a hot mirror. This way visual tasks can be offered to a test person in the open field.

In order to ease a custom, research specific set-up, Plusoptix offers optional auxiliaries (chin rest, hot mirror apparatus, sliding rail with camera adapter, etc.).

Plusoptix offers complimentary training at its Nuremberg/Germany headquarters (airport code NUE). Scientists are welcome to schedule training at their convenience prior to or after taking their purchasing decision.
