The Optishield for Optometry

“Made of soft medical grade silicone, this simple and clever concept fits neatly onto the spectacle lens allowing good coverage when conducting visual assessments”.

Knowing that the Optishield is sitting securely in the right place gives the optometrist the confidence to concentrate on the test-taking place instead of the positioning of the occluder. This results in an examination that is more comfortable for both clinician and patient. This becomes particularly valuable when testing young patients who are more mobile and those with special educational needs and disabilities. The frosted Optishield is ideally suited to testing pediatric patients who may become concerned when occluded with black paddles.

The Optishield is lightweight and easy to mount on most spectacle frame sizes and will sit neatly into a lens box in consulting rooms in between use.

CE accredited.

The Optishield for THE PATIENT

A current front-line practice within the NHS for patients suffering with temporary or intermittent Diplopia (double vision) is to apply frosted tape or a fabric patch to the patient’s spectacle lens.

The frosted Optishield for patients offers a flexible alternative where temporary partial occlusion for a clinically prescribed period has been recommended by an eye care specialist. This can include stroke, traumatic brain injury, macular degeneration, vision therapy exercises and neuro-ophthalmology. 

The Optishield has been designed with an easy on/off fit, making it suitable for short term tasks such as reading, watching television or using a computer.
