Vmax Vision Intros PSF Integra, a 'Complete Refraction Lane-in-a-Box'
Product: PSF Integra
Top Line: The PSF Integra from Vmax Vision is a complete "refraction lane-in-a-box."
Close Up: Vmax Vision's PSF Integra promises to add extra efficacy and productivity to users of the PSF Refractor. Reducing the refraction lane by a third it enables the achievement of the highest level of precision and accuracy but in one third of the space and without inducing accommodative response. Providing a 20 feet effective distance, it eliminates the need for practices to have a 16 to 20 foot lane. With the PSF Integra, eyecare practitioners can now double working capacity and revenue, without the need to create more space. They can fit the system in the pre-test area and perform the subjective refraction alongside the other pre-tests such as auto-refraction, OCT or retinal cameras, which up until now was not possible.
Vital Stats: The PSF Refractor from Vmax Vision uses Point-Spread Function (PSF) to measure patients' subjective visual response to a point source. It enables the correction of higher-order aberrations, resulting in refractions that are up to five times more precise than with a phoropter and measuring to 0.05D accuracy. Complementing the PSF Refractor are the Encepsion lenses, which are premium free-form lenses available as progressive or single-vision lenses. Manufactured using 100 percent digital, free-form Diamond Point Technology, they are designed to incorporate the patient’s lifestyle and individualized fitting data. The System also comes with voice-guided instruction software for the PSF Refractor, which audibly guides the patient through each refraction test. With the addition of this unique voice instruction, refraction training time is significantly reduced, while ensuring a consistent quality of testing.

'Transitions Tech Talk' Resource Sheds Light on the Technology Behind Adaptive Lenses
Product: Transitions Optical's "Tech Talk" Facebook tab
Top Line: Transitions Optical has launched a new "Tech Talk" Facebook tab on the company’s professionals Facebook page,
www.Facebook.com/TransitionsOptical. The tab features Transitions researchers responding to some of the most frequently asked questions concerning adaptive lens technology, technical papers and a question-and-answer section, which allows visitors to ask a question directly of the experts.
Close Up: The Transitions Tech Talk tab includes content focused on the newest additions to the Transitions family of products. Only 54 percent of eyecare professionals who answered a recent survey on technical knowledge were able to select an accurate description of how Transitions XTRActive lenses work; and even fewer understood the performance behind Transitions Vantage lenses (48 percent) and Transitions Drivewear lenses (38 percent). Even out of those who rated themselves as "very confident" in their understanding of how photochromics work, only 12 percent were able to identify the correct answers for how all three of the above products perform.
Vital Stats: Included as part of the new Tech Talk education is a paper on Transitions XTRActive lenses. These lenses provide an option for patients who spend more time outdoors, and/or behind the windshield of a car, and want extra protection in those situations. After a brief introduction to how photochromics work, the paper provides a look behind the technology to explain how visible light activation was used to give consumers another choice in adaptive lens technology.
