QuickSee Free’s combination of the open view design, wavefront aberrometry, and innovative measurement algorithms produces clinically accurate autorefraction measurements, in a durable handheld format suitable for use in clinics and in the field.

The patented PlenOptika Wavefront Refraction Engine™ precisely determines low-order refractive errors, making QuickSee Free as accurate as the high-end clinical desktop autorefractors and demonstrating excellent agreement with subjective refraction.

QuickSee Free’s technology has been clinically-evaluated in five IRB-based studies and documented in many peer-reviewed publications and conference abstracts. QuickSee Free has FDA Class I 510(k) exempt medical device registration.
