The first, and best refracting instrument, continues to be the industry standard after nearly 80 years, offering world-renown mechanical quality and craftsmanship.
Every Phoroptor has that unmistakeable feel of quality. The smooth rotation of the dials. The virtual absence of play in the mechanisms. The precise, solid click of the control knobs. Constant reminders that you're using the world's finest refracting instrument. It's a fit and feel no one can duplicate, any more than they can duplicate the Phoroptor's optical quality, accuracy and reliability.
Lens position and power verified by an auto-indexing, PC-based lensmeter
Precision geared rotary prism for more precise interpolation of small prism diopters
