  1. Click on Image for even more info! You’ve probably seen a computer image that has been enlarged/changed size…it becomes pixilated; and thus, you probably should consider monitor quality & image quality if you’re presenting something as important as optotypes. It seems silly to me to create optotypes out of images that can be distorted. The Sharp System software is the only acuity software (that I’m aware of) to employ “object-oriented graphics” (vector graphics) for each optotype. Vector graphics use geometrical primitives such as lines, points, and curves. Each optotype is based on geometrical calculations, so one can indefinitely zoom in on our optotypes and they remain crisp. This can be verified with a magnifying loupe. The "sharpness" of the optotypes is limited only by the quality of the monitor (not by image file quality & monitor quality as in other acuity programs). When it comes to presenting optotypes, this is very important. What's Included in the Pre-Sale?

    Next time, offer your golf pts an inverse ribbon seg. This will give them clear vision to strike the ball, and they can hold their score card up to see it clearly.

    True or False?

    If over corrected for near, then the pt has too much plus. Plus lenses cause light to converge. The more plus, the closer light converges. In other words, the more plus, the closer the focal point. So, if over corrected, the the pt will need to hold reading material closer to them.
  4. Eye Movement System software - $89 Eye Movement System (EMS) software for improving and monitoring pursuits and saccades. This includes the software & a video game controller to operate the software (can also be controlled with a keyboard). The video game controller is just to help motivate the kids. Software works on PC and Mac (& is Windows Vista certified). This software is a really great practice management tool. Doctors, and Moms & Dads know that the child is improving visual tracking deficiencies and increasing their ocular motility--children think their playing a new video game! Saccade Mode: select from 14 saccade setups. Includes horizontal, vertical, and oblique saccades. The software also includes a distracters mode. Using the Horiz/Vert # Isolation mode, the clinician can measure the automaticity (vertical component) and the automaticity + saccades (horizontal component). In addition, the software will calculate the Horiz/Vert Ratio. The Horiz/Vert # Isolation mode simulates reading & provides a quantitative finding. You are also able to track the patient's errors…including omissions, additions, substitutions, and transpositions. When you're done, print your findings. This is an excellent tool to differentiate between a comprehension problem and an oculomotor problem. Pursuits Mode: allows the patient to track a smoothly moving target. Includes horizontal, vertical, oblique, and circular pursuits. $89 eMail me if you have further questions.
