A formative usability study recently completed by the Medical Devices Technical Evaluation Centre found a very high level of acceptance among optometrists.

The study identified a 100% completion success rate, with the highly experienced participants perceiving the device as a helpful aid to enable hands-free working, resulting in a direct positive impact on their usual clinical practice.

The Optishield also offers a flexible alternative where temporary partial occlusion for a clinically prescribed period has been recommended by an eye care specialist, for example, patients suffering from intractable diplopia (double vision).

The Optishield is lightweight and easy to mount on most spectacle frame sizes and will sit neatly into a lens box in consulting rooms in between use.
