Topcon’s new CV-5000 automatic phoropter head sets new quality standards. Fast lens rotation provides comfort for user and patient. Compact and contemporary design enhances the professional image of the practitioner. Thanks to the compact design the refractionist can monitor the patient’s expression during refraction. To perform near tests, near chart illumination is incorporated into CV-5000.
