Topcon introduces SOLOS Automatic Lens Analyser
SOLOS is designed as a multi-functional device to simplify the clinical workflow by combining a fully automated lensmeter with a full-range spectrometer.
It provides automatic lens type detection, automatic marking, and lens mapping of single vision, progressive, and other multifocal lenses—in spectacle frame or as uncut lenses, according to a news release.
The device automatically positions each lens, detects the lens type, and performs comprehensive measurements of both lenses within a spectacle frame.
SOLOS includes an extended measurement range of +/- 20 D as well as a built-in spectral transmittance meter that measures ultraviolet, blue, and visible light transmittance in addition to lens tint. Results are displayed immediately and can be sent to either a patient’s electronic medical records or wirelessly transferred to Topcon’s CV-5000S or Chronos refraction system, enhancing connectivity, preventing transcription errors, and enabling comparisons of new prescriptions with previous spectacles to support purchasing decisions, according to the company.
