Practices in the market for new vision testing equipment now have another option to consider, a device called Chronos from Topcon that measures objective and subjective refraction as well as keratometry. Combining these functions in a single instrument allows space-saving and encourages delegation of vision testing, according to a company press release.

Chronos also includes a feature called SightPilot that Topcon says gives step-by-step instructions to the operator during refraction based on the patient’s responses, as a way to speed up vision testing and improve workflow efficiency. Another convenience Topcon points out is the ability to remotely operate Chronos from a tablet or computer, to maintain a safe distance from the patient and also improve the ergonomics of refraction.
