Featuring the thinnest, most compact design, incredibly fast lens exchange, and ultra-quiet operation, Reichert® Phoroptor® VRx Digital Refraction System sets a new standard in refraction


Phoroptor® VRx sets new standards in digital refraction. With the thinnest, most compact design available, incredibly fast lens exchanges, motorized prisms, split cylinder lenses, and ultra-quiet operation, Phoroptor® VRx offers an outstanding patient experience.

The touchscreen display and ergonomic keypad features a multi-function control knob with unmatched feel and versatility. The intuitive interface has all the pre-programmed and programmable tests you’ll need for an exceptional user experience.

Phoroptor® VRx connects to an extensive list of EMR systems as well as numerous models of pre-test and acuity devices from both Reichert and non-Reichert brands, for effortless integration. Bluetooth is built into the Phoroptor® VRx Central Unit and Reichert Bluetooth adapters can be paired to connect an external instrument wirelessly.


Smallest design,

biggest impression

With the most compact digital refractor head available (12.2 W × 8 H × 2.8 D in. at a 64 mm PD), Phoroptor® VRx is non-intimidating and allows for greater patient visibility. The sleek, refined and high-tech styling of Phoroptor® VRx will impress all your current patients and help gain new ones.

To prevent patients from experiencing tunnel  vision, Phoroptor® VRx has the thinnest lens  profile amongst digital refractors, at 26 mm.  In fact, Phoroptor® VRx has a thinner profile  than a manual Phoroptor. 

To achieve the thinnest lens profile, Phoroptor® VRx has external motorised prism lenses that slide in and out only as needed.

More cylinders,

more horsepower

Refinement of cylinder power and axis can be accomplished using the familiar Jackson Cross Cylinder or the innovative Smart Cylinder method where cylinder power and axis are automatically bracketed based on the amount of cylinder in the patient’s prescription. Phoroptor® VRx also features a Split Cylinder mode, where patients are simultaneously presented with two targets.

Premium motors and metal housing provide Phoroptor® VRx with incredibly fast and ultra-quiet lens exchanges. Unlike other digital refactors, your patients will hardly notice the lens movement.

To increase efficiency and allow refraction to be delegated to trained technicians, Phoroptor® VRx has pre-programmed and programmable test options. You can choose from pre-programmed tests including astigmatism, phoria, binocular balance, and near vision. 


Precise handling and control

The Phoroptor® VRx controller features a logically and ergonomically arranged keypad, designed to enhance the user experience. Buttons are grouped based on functionality for easy access: gray for data, blue for refraction, and black for acuity. Buttons are also LED backlit for better visibility in dimly lit exam rooms.


The Phoroptor® VRx multi-function control knob is smooth rotating and has a solid feel comparable to the Ultramatic RX Master™ Phoroptor® dials you know and love, for unmatched control versatility.

The RotoChart near point card is automatically illuminated, with two available brightness levels, when the reading rod is lowered into position.

You can access all functions and settings of the intuitive user interface, through the integrated 10.4 inch tilting, touchscreen display.
