Case Study: The Importance of School Vision Screenings

In the fall of 2015, Dr. Huy Tran and Maya Major of Smart Vision Labs screened 316 students over two days at Tuckahoe Commons Schools in Southampton, Long Island. The students participating in the school vision screening (most who had not gone to the eye doctor in the past year) ranged from ages 4 to 13, grades Pre-K to 8th.

New Study Demonstrates the Clinical Utility and Accuracy of the SVOne Autorefractor for Measuring Refractive Error

NEW YORK, NY — Smart Vision Labs, Inc., the maker of a smartphone-based autorefractor, announces the release of new data on its SVOne autorefractor being published in a leading peer-reviewed publication. In a study led by Kenneth J. Ciuffreda, OD, PhD, FAAO, FCOVD-A, FARVO, and Mark Rosenfield, MCOptom, PhD, FAAO, the smartphone-based SVOne aberrometer was shown to be comparable with subjective refraction and an office-based autorefractor when measuring refractive error under both cycloplegic and non-cycloplegic conditions in visually normal young adults. The researchers heralded the SVOne as valuable for examinations taking place both inside and outside the clinical setting.
