A unique interpolative refinement algorithm rapidly generates results with unprecedented accuracy, across a range of over 700 levels.
Additional optotypes include numbers, Eccentric Es and icons.
Results are instantly displayed in MiQ units (zero to 100 in steps of 0.1) Equivalents are also displayed. (Snellen, logMAR and VAR).
The same algorithm is used to measure contrast sensitivity across a range of over 200 contrast levels.
Fixation disparity, Worth four dot and Suppression tests are quickly re-sizeable to increase sensitivity.
Over 20 yrs of test chart evolution have resulted in a rapid and patient friendly refraction chart.
The most problematic stage of refraction is probably the evaluation of astigmatism. This unique test for astigmatism greatly facilitates both speed and accuracy.
To provide rapid and accurate ‘phoria measurement, three options are provided;
With the multiQuity Contrast 256, for the first time, clinic-friendly contrast testing can be made. Although contrast testing has long been recognised as more relevant to the high-definition visual world in which we now live, it has largely been relegated to research centres, simply because it has not been easy to conduct, efficient and convenient for patients.
The multiQuity contrast 256 addresses all the historical problems associated with contrast testing in the high street optometry clinic. With the multiQuity acuity 720, the measurement of vision and visual acuity can be made with an accuracy previously impossible.
This greater sensitivity enables far earlier identification of changes in the visual system, providing improved treatment outcomes. Often, when treatment provides improvements in the visual performance of patients, these go unnoticed using traditional acuity tests.
With Acuity 720, it is now possible to measure and confirm improvements.Improved accuracy and consistency in the visual refraction routine is also enabled, by allowing refinement of the optical prescription at acuity threshold levels.
With the multiQuity Rx computer test chart, both optometrist and patient benefit from 25 years of test chart evolution. At all stages of the refraction process, speed and accuracy are evident.
Duochromes are resizable to optimise sensitivity, as are tests for astigmatism. A unique precision axis test provides for rapid and precise evaluation of the axis of astigmatism. Phorias can be quick-screened, or accurately quantified.
Need to know quickly whether or not your patient will pass or fail a specific visual standard for driving or piloting an aircraft? Simple go to the 'Vision Standards' section to link to the relevant activity.
Because the MiQ has been created as an app, your test chart will always be at the leading edge of vision research, and never go out of date!
BSc FCOptom Optometrist
Graham graduated from Cardiff School of Optometry in 1977, having previously gained a degree in Applied Physics at the University of Coventry. A particular interest in Visual Perception and Psychophysics led to his first computer test chart in the late 1980s using Microsoft Windows. He has gone on to develop specialised optometric tests for use on a lap-top computer. These have enabled optometrists worldwide to perform accurate vision assessments in the patient’s home, including visual fields and macular integrity assessment.
