Professor Rasengane

We’ve been using SPECTRUM since 2009; the tests include different Visual Acuity targets, subjective refraction techniques, colour vision, contrast sensitivity and binocular vision. The Visual Acuity targets are extensive and range from Snellen, LogMAR to child-friendly pictures and symbols.  The fan and block test is also included in the system making it easier for lecturers to teach this. I not only recommend this product for the clinical examination of patients; it is a good clinical teaching tool that each student should be exposed to
