Robert Arnold’s interview

Doc. Robert Arnold answered to some questions about Adaptica and his main goal in the fight against Amblyopia
He was interviewed during the AMGO congress
We hope he will reach his goal and we will always support him in his battle against pediatric eye deseases.

Mass screening organized by Cavite State University – Philippines

Mass screening organized by Cavite State University – Philippines

Last April 15, 2019, Local Medical Technology students from Cavite State University used our Kaleidos and performed refractions to 70 adult & child patients plus around 40 students. These students helped organize this humanitarian mission for their local barangay people in Indang, Cavite, in the southern part of Luzon and approximately a three hour drive outside of Manila.

Kaleidos is the best tool for them to use for these screenings as it’s portable, easy to use, can be used in any setting, and can give you results in seconds without needing a skilled operator.

Mass screening in Calbayog City – Philippines

Mass screening in Calbayog City – Philippines

Towards the end of April 2019, partnered with local Rotary Club of Calbayog, local optometrist and Borough Center for Sight in coordination with Dr. Jerome Sarmiento, Medical Director of Cebu Branch which opened their Cebu clinic on May 2019 was performed a mass screening for 900 local patients from Calbayog City, Eastern Samar which is part of region 8 Visayas area and has the 3rd most largest area of mass land in the Philippines. Everybody was amazed to use Kaleidos and they highly appreciated the accuracy, simplicity and mobility of this device. They are strongly recommended it for their clinic together with the VisionFit SC.

This is the largest group of patients that we have analyzed using our Kaleidos in Philippines so far. The Eye care specialists and the patient as well  found very exiting the way the screening process rolled out. We examined and refracted patients who have not experience in Eye refraction check-up and this is the part of the efficiency, mobility, time saving and unique way the kalends performs.

2WIN CR strabismus app – Stephanie Kirk

Stephanie Kirk Arnold, Doc. Robert Arnold ‘s daughter-in-law, discussed the CR strabismus function of Adaptica’s 2WIN photoscreener compared to Retinomax photoscreener at AAPOS in San Diego on March 28, 2019. 

CR- App allows you to measure hetero-tropias and/or hetero-phorias. It compares the position of the corneal reflexes in three different measurements (the first binocular, the second and the third monocular under an Infrared Occluder). The Occluder is a black handheld filter which allows the 2WIN infrared rays to pass through while blocking all visible light.

She compared the use of 2WIN Infrared Occluder with CR-App and the Retinomax Cover Test according to the AAPOS 2013 guidelines. The study was performed on 436 patients, aged from 3 months to 66 years old, 25% of them had development delays .

2WIN CR measuraments correlated highly with Retinomax Cover Test for intermittent and constant strabismus.

Dr. Robert Arnold is a pediatric ophthalmologist working in Alaska and committed to the Pediatric Eye Disease Investigation. In fact, he is part of the Alaska Blind Child Discovery, a cooperative, charitable research project to provide valid image interpretation and parental notification for volunteer charitable screening in urban and rural Alaska.

In this video he explains how CR-App inside 2WIN works: this App allows you to measure hetero-tropias and / or hetero-phorias. It compares the position of the corneal reflexes in three different measurements (the first binocular, the second and the third monocular under an infrared occluder). A black handheld filter is included and allows the 2WIN infrared rays to pass through while blocking all visible light.

Kaleidos – What does Mr Van Pottelbergh think

Kaleidos – What does Mr Van Pottelbergh think

During the the OB Congress in Bruxelles, thanks to our distributor Rockmed Opto Belux, we had the opportunity to have KALEIDOS tested by Mr Van Pottelbergh, founder of Eyes for the World Foundation.

Hereafter his kind review:

“I had the opportunity to test the Kaleidos of Adaptica during the three-day Phamanology exhibition in Brussels. This device is extremely user-friendly, easy and quick to set up. In addition, the design of this device is an additional asset because everyone wants to look in this “viewmaster”. This gives an extra nice and positive feeling for those who want to undergo a test. During these days I did about a hundred screenings. Of course, after the objective test with the Kaleidos, we performed a subjective test. The advantage with the Kaleidos is that the patient only has to look in the device for a few seconds and that you immediately have a result. I do not know any other device where it goes so smoothly. Of course the results are the most important. In all cases we received a correct indication about the patient’s problems; myopia, hypermetropia or astigmatism. The values of astigmatism were correct in most cases, sometimes slightly overcorrected, but the axis direction was correct in almost all cases. Since I carry out a lot of mobile tests, I am a fan of this device and I will work with the Kaleidos in the future. For me this is the first device where user-friendliness, compactness and reliability are present. Highly recommended for the eye specialist”
