- Exam Room Essentials/Retinoscopes
The only thing that should ever come between you and your patient is excellent testing equipment. Handhelds are pivotal pieces of medical equipment in the exam room, and some, like the retinoscope, help physicians in the refractive process. These handhelds are essential in cases with patients who have trouble with traditional refractions, such as children or those who are non-verbal. Even in clinics where glasses prescriptions are not regularly dispensed, a diagnostic refraction with a retinoscope can yield valuable information about the overall health of the eye. Welch Allen or Ezer, halogen bulb or LED, battery operated or corded, US Ophthalmic has a wide variety of handheld equipment to outfit your vision care office. Designed with ergonomic, continuously rotating balancing sleeves, polarized lenses, and a special sealed construction, our retinoscopes provide clean optics with better maneuverability for the highest-quality streaks with less trial lens glare. With options for travel sets or stand alone units that nest in docks for charging, there are retinoscopes for every office set up and use.
