Group: EPIC-5100 Refraction Workstation

Faisal Haq, MD

The EPIC refraction system from Marco has been a key addition to our practice that has helped us achieve this improved quality of care while simultaneously improving our efficiency. We purchased our first EPIC system and were so impressed with it that we added a second unit 3 months later. The system comprised of the TRS digital refractor and the integrated OPD-Scan III component, gives us a reliable, fast refraction as well as a detailed corneal analysis that aids us in multiple ways in the pre- and post-operative management of cataract patients.

Much of the emphasis around autorefraction is placed on the time it saves – with good reason. When I performed the refraction myself, I averaged 10 to 15 minutes per patient. Using the EPIC system, refraction takes just 2 to 3 minutes with my staff; then I validate or tweak the prescription for 1 or 2 minutes for a total of about 5 minutes. That cuts refraction times in half, and translates into me seeing 5 to 10 more patients each day.
