Gulden introduces all-in-one toolJanuary 27, 2013
Gulden Ophthalmics introduced the new Lewerenz Accommodation Maddox and Occluder Tool for vision care professionals who often wish they had three hands: one for an occluder, one for a test target, and one to measure the distance.
This new innovative tool was designed by David Lewerenz, O.D., AOA Vision Rehabilitation Section secretary affiliated with Northeastern State University, in conjunction with Gulden.
With its calibrated scale in both centimeters and diopters, it can be used to measure the amplitude of accommodation and near point of convergence.
Often vision care professionals perform different clinical tests in sequence. After testing visual acuities or a cover test with the occluder function, they can keep the Lewerenz tool in hand, pick up the near target, and not have to find or reach for any other device to take measurements. In addition to its novel multi-function design, it is unique in that it provides measurements in the units clinicians want – diopters for accommodation and centimeters for convergence.
With this new, competitively priced tool, no longer will vision care professionals:
- Wish they had three hands!
- Need to try to keep the patient and near target in place while having to reach for a measuring tool
- Need to convert centimeters to diopters when measuring accommodation
- Need to have so many tools by the exam chair
Instructions for use by the clinician are easy and simple.
