Reichert® is pleased to announce that ClearChart® 4X Enhanced Digital Acuity System and ClearChart® 4P Polarized Digital Acuity System now contain LEA SYMBOLS® and LEA NUMBERS® optotypes. These optotypes are considered the standard for pediatric acuity testing and are calibrated in accordance with the Landolt C optotype series. LEA SYMBOLS are easier for children to identify and both new sets of optotypes blur equally when presented to the patient.

Effective immediately, all ClearChart 4X and ClearChart 4P Digital Acuity Systems will feature LEA SYMBOLS and LEA NUMBERS.

Compatibility with existing Reichert Phoroptor® VRx Digital Refraction System and SightChek™ Digital Phoroptor® is possible with a software update. Please contact Reichert Technical Support or your local Reichert Authorized Distributor to arrange a software update for your digital refraction system.
