Vision Field Care

Better care of customers' vision by opticians with the VISION FIELD CARE screener

The VISION FIELD CARE screener is a Danish system developed for opticians who wish to offer a super efficient and optimised visual field screening to its customers wearing glasses and contact lenses. The test has the a professional level comparative to that carried out by ophthalmologists and takes only 8 minutes. Thus, the VISION FIELD CARE screener extends the opticians' professional competencies and services offered to glasses and contact lens wearers.

The VISION FIELD CARE screener enables opticians to detect sight-threatening eye diseases in a routine visual field screening which means that more glasses and contact lens wearers are treated for these diseases earlier ─ and thereby their loss of eye sight is reduced or eliminated completely. For the benefit of the customer, the optician and the health system.

Optimised visual field screening by opticians - more custimers in the store

95% of all eye examinations in Denmark are carried out by opticians. If glasses and contact lens wearers were informed that opticians with a VISION FIELD CARE screener routinely offer an optimised eye examination, including a visual field screening, they are much more likely to choose these opticians, rather than those who offer only an ordinary visual acuity test. Glaucoma and other serious ocular diseases are detected much earlier with a visual field screening and a serious and unnecessary loss of eye sight of many customers can thus be prevented by opticians that offer visual field screening as a standard.


Rational and safe screening in only 8 minutes

With the VISION FIELD CARE screener the entire visual field of the customer is screened in only 8 minutes. Besides being carried out in a very short time, the customer actually carries it out the screening him/herself after a brief instruction by the staff. Thus, the screening with the VISION FIELD CARE screener is an absolutely cost-effective method in the ordinary servicing of glasses and contact lens wearers.


Tested at the Danish Rigshospitalet, a highly specialised hospital

The VISION FIELD CARE screener has been tested at the Rigshospitalet, a highly specialised hospital in Denmark. The VISION FIELD CARE screener is the only system which gives specific instructions as to when the optician must refer glasses or contact lens wearers to the ophthalmologist.

Rigshospitalet documented that the VISION FIELD CARE screener detects both false positives and false negatives effectively. The system also screens the entire visual system, which is a requirement in order to fulfil the optician's license.


Danish technology with a focus on efficiency

The VISION FIELD CARE screener is based on technology developed in Denmark. The VISION FIELD CARE screener has been designed specifically as a tool for opticians who wish to carry out a maximum number of visual field screenings of glasses and contact lens wearers with a minimal use of staff. A total visual field screening is carried out in only 8 minutes.

The VISION FIELD CARE screener detects ocular diseases and signs of these diseases at an early stage

A regular visual acuity test carried out by an optician determines the necessary correction of the lenses or contact lenses, and only the functioning of the central retina is examined. The vision field is not usually examined routinely during an ordinary visual acuity test.

A visual field screening carried ou with the VISION FIELD CARE screener provides important and early information about symptoms or outright ocular diseases such as glaucoma, retinal detachment, bleeding, thrombosis, inflammation, tumors and diseases of the optic nerve, visual pathways and visual brain. Many of these diseases only show minor symptoms at the early stages, but the visual field screening can help diagnose the disease at an early stage so that treatment can be initiated early and with better results.

Benefits of VISION FIELD CARE

Better vision care - better service - better profits

For the benefit of both the optician - and the customer

The mission of VISION FIELD CARE is to improve vision care by opticians ─ for the benefit of both opticians and their customers. A professional visual field screening improves the customers’ experience as they get optimal service by the optician – and professional screenings generate better profits for the optician. It’s that simple.

By offering a routine, thorough visual field screening with the VISION FIELD CARE screener, the optician can help customers maintain a good vision and in time discover possible damage to the visual pathways that may otherwise have fatal consequences for the customer's vision. A thorough examination without the proper equipment takes a long time ─ with a VISION FIELD CARE screener it only takes 8 minutes.


The target group for VISION FIELD CARE screening is people aged 40+

The primary target group for Vision Field Care screening is people aged 40+ ─ a large customer group that are about to purchase glasses for the first time.

The importance of all persons aged 40+ undergoing a functional test and visual field screening at the optician’s before the first glasses are purchased is great ─ and can prevent fatal vision loss by early detection of symptoms of serious ocular diseases.
