I didn’t want to use a manual refractor, so I bought the EPIC refraction system. My staff and I trained on it for about a day, and I moved all of my refractions over to the EPIC with OPD and TRS-5100 refraction system. Using this system exclusively has led to better patient flow, increased precision in refractions, increased profitability and reduced risk of transcription errors. What’s more, the ergonomic features have eliminated my overhead arm movement. The console platform for the refraction is waist high. I operate it from a chair and simply turn one dial and push an occasional button. If you’ve experienced any neck or spin problems – or just want to avoid them – I recommend the OPD-Scan III and TRS 5100 combination refraction system.
