  • A breath shield option for the phoropter is now available from the Bernell Corporation. The Phoropter
    Shield™ is a lightweight, easy to sanitize tool that quickly slips on and off most manual phoropters for
    added protection between doctor and patient.

    The Phoropter Shield’s patent-pending design features special contours that cover the gap between the
    two sides of the phoropter without covering the oculars or interfering with the use of cylinder knobs, JCC
    units, or Risley units.

    The shield is made of a polycarbonate composition can be cleaned with most disinfectants, as well as
    warm soap and water, to sanitize between patients.


  • Bernell Stereo Test Book - Near and Far Tests
    Item #: BC1025 Stereo tranaglyph™ test booklet. Designed to offer a simple, yet effective option for screening stereoscopic vision deficits in patients of all ages.


  • This economical screening solution helps to detect binocular vision issues such as poor stereopsis, amblyopia, suppression and strabismus. The test booklet combines three standard variations of stereo screening books into one convenient package! This includes: near stereo acuity for both gross stereopsis and fine depth perception, distance stereo acuity for gross stereopsis, and random dot gross stereopsis and fine depth perception. As an added bonus, the cover is comprised of stereo images of shapes and figures positioned at various distances, which can be used as a quick binocular screening tool.

    The book is printed using specialty transparent red and green inks, which provide exceptional cancellation when viewing the images using our Bernell Red/Green Filters, which are included with the kit. The booklet also includes a printed answer key in the back of the book.

  • The Richman Face Dot Test™
    Item #: JRFDP, Richman Face Dot Test (RFDT™) visual acuity test...

  • Tests for visual acuity in difficult-to-test pre-verbal or nonverbal infants and children with low cognitive or developmental functioning levels. The face is an easily recognized target and provides a strong attention stimulus for low functioning patients. The test employs the use of contrast sensitivity in a forced choice testing procedure. The results may be converted into an approximate visual acuity based on the testing distance. The set includes three paddles that can be used at different test distances to approximate visual acuity. Distance chart is on back of test paddle. Instructions for the different testing methods are also included.
  • Bernell FBAT™
    Item #: BCFBAT1, Bernell Functional Binocular Assessment Test Booklet (FBAT™)...

  • The Bernell Functional Binocular Assessment Test booklet, or Bernell FBAT™, is designed as a convenient and portable, anaglyph tool for assessing various aspects of binocularity with many different clinic populations. It can be an effective tool for working with older infants, toddlers, and non-verbal patients who will often grab in the air for the stereoscopic figures appearing in front of the page, demonstrating both stereopsis and localization. Targets present a range of binocular challenges from basic simultaneous perception to more sophisticated stereopsis, Varying target sizes, different fusion locks, and reference targets allow the examiner to probe and categorize binocular aspects of strabismic performance. Design of the test plates was developed in cooperation with Dr. Gregory Kitchener and Dr. Paul Harris based on their clinical experiences working with a broad variety of patient populations.

    The test booklets are conveniently printed so that the descriptions, instructions, expected responses, and suggestions face the examiner while the patient is viewing the corresponding test plate. This easy, yet informative, test booklet is a great addition to every practice especially when seeing children, non-verbal patients, or those with strabismus and amblyopia.

    The product includes 12 test plates in booklet form with instructions, two pairs of Red/Green Glasses (Adult and Child versions), and two red pointers.
  • Bernell Evaluation of Stereopsis Test
    Item #: BESTD1, BEST - Dinosaur Version Glasses-Free Depth Perception Test....

  • The new glasses-free depth perception test utilizes lenticular technology in order to create a colorful and less expensive depth perception test without the need for red/green or polarized glasses. This technology also allows for color images to improve interest and images that will resist fading over time. It also has several challenges; the key one being apparent motion. If the test were set up like the traditional polarized version, the answer could have been obtained by even a monocular patient by moving the test from side to side to see which image moves; similar to the apparent motion seen in the polarized type tests by closing one eye at a time. In order to prevent such a hint, this test was designed differently. One image in each row appears to be closer and one appears farther compared to the circle in which they are housed. If the test is moved or twisted from side to side (which they are instructed not to do) one can tell which ones are different, but not whether they come out or go in.

    The test has two test plates:
    Plate #1 features a Dinosaur character which tests gross stereopsis.

    Plate #2 features clip-art characters that are divided into two separate tests. Test 1(Rows 1 - 4) tests fine depth perception with range of targets progressing from 400 seconds of arc down to 40 seconds of arc. Test 2 (Rows A - C) test a row at 400 (Row A), 200 (Row B), and 80 (Row C) seconds of arc targets.
  • Senaptec Strobe Training Goggles
    Item #: SSTROBE1 Senaptec Strobe Training Goggles...

  • Pocket CFF Tester™
    Item #: CSCFF, critical flicker fusion testing device. A compact, hand-held device for determining the CFF values of a patient's vision.

  • Critical flicker fusion frequency is the point at which a light is flickering so fast that the visual system perceives it as a solid or non-flickering light. In certain neurological conditions, the CFF of a patient will change. The measurements may be taken on the right eye, left eye or both eyes.

    The CFF unit will give you three values:
    1) The point where the solid light first starts to flicker is referred to as non-seeing to seeing or NSTS.
    2) The point where you are seeing the flicker and the frequency increases till you no longer see the flicker, which is referred to as seeing to non-seeing or STNS.
    3) The average of the two values above.

    This item was mentioned in an study published in the Vision Development and Rehabilitation: COVD's Digital Journal.

    • Identify children with color vision deficiencies so that teachers can make accommodations accordingly.

  • Computerized Color Vision Test (CCVT)
    Item #: WCCVT1, Waggoner™ Computerized Color Vision Test...

  • The Surface Pro 2017 with the Waggoner Computerized Color Vision Test preinstalled was created as an all-in-one color vision testing suite to satisfy anyone interested in testing for color vision deficiencies ranging from school nurses to the U.S. Military from optometrists to ophthalmologists. Within the WCCVT, an individual can choose several different testing methods that includes screening, diagnostic, pediatric, and adult testing. The Adult Diagnostic test provided in the WCCVT software is the cutting edge in color vision testing. It has been coined one of three "precision" color vision tests available today by the U.S. FAA. It is a military-grade color vision test that is accepted by the U.S. Navy, Army, and Coast Guard for all personnel and applicants, including pilots. The diagnostic tests are perfect for identifying both genetic and acquired color vision deficiencies and then providing the type and severity of the deficiency. Color Vision Testing Made Easy is included in the application and is the gold standard for pediatric color vision testing and is used to screen participants at the World Special Olympics to this day. Due to formalities, we have included the D-15 even though this test has been shown to have lower sensitivity and specificity than our diagnostic tests included in the WCCVT. The validation completed by the U.S. Navy has shown that calibration is not required for the Surface Pro 2017 tablet.

    Waggoner CCVT Advantages

    • The Waggoner CCVT tablet can be used in multiple lanes since it is mobile.
    • The Waggoner CCVT does not require calibration according to a study completed by the U.S. Navy.

    • The WCCVT is the most competitively priced diagnostic color vision test on the market.
    • The WCCVT was validated by a third party, the U.S. Navy.
    • The WCCVT is accepted by the U.S. Navy, Army, and Coast Guard. It has been recommended by the FAA to screen pilots.
    • More user-friendly and easier to interpret than other competitive products.
    • Has higher sensitivity than the CCT, which means its better at identifying color vision deficient individuals.
    • It is reimbursable under CPT code 92283.

    Why use the Waggoner CCVT?

    • Improved patient care. Identify diseases and toxic levels of substances using our acquired color vision test.
    • It has the shortest testing times for individuals with normal color vision.
    • The test is completely randomized and standardized to remove administrator bias, memorization of test plates, and a consistent test-taking experience every single time.
    • Waggoner is the only distributor of a color vision test that is also developed by the founders. All of the other computerized color vision tests were developed within an institution and given to 3rd parties to distribute. We are the color vision experts.
    • Reimbursable which is not any different than the other computerized color vision test but is unique to traditional testing methods.
