Bernell Preliminary Test Kit

As the demands of practice change, it is even more difficult to perform all of the necessary tests on our patients today. Often many primary care optometrists are being forced into seeing more patients per hour or per day in order to survive economically with third party plans. Unfortunately, this sometimes means either foregoing certain test or delegating them to technicians. Sadly, particularly with children, the assessment of the binocular system is one of the first things to be passed over in a routine exam.

In order to free up the doctor's time and yet get the necessary information of the binocular skills for the doctor, Bernell has developed a preliminary room test kit which may be used by a technician. It is designed around simple free space tests instead of an instrument such as a stereoscope to allow a more realistic test of real world demands.
