For more than 25 years no pure spot retinoscope heads have been available. Thanks to a team at Bernell a spot scope head is now available once again. The head has been machined to fit on the Welch Allyn handles and to provide the large-diameter and uniform spot of light that the retinoscopists who invented the procedures such as Book retinoscopy, Bell retinoscopy, Stress-Point retinoscopy, Just-Look retinoscopy and many more similar techniques all used.
A large bright and uniform light source facilitates seeing not just the direction of movement of the reflex but many qualitative changes in the reflex such as the brightness, the hue, the distribution of light changes introduced by the patient's visual attention and many more things, which either a streak or the modified streak (streak assembly with a spot bulb inserted) simply do not.
This head promises to launch a new era of the development of retinoscopists. Having superior tools which are well-crafted and easy to use, will help improve patient care.
