Introducing the Epiglare

Glare Testing Defined


Key Benefits

Allows examiner to test at the phoropter with best corrected vision

Designed to simulate glare from oncoming headlights

Poor visual acuity while driving at night is a key complaint of cataract patients

Allows documenting results with minimal training

Models include binocular and single eye units for manual phoropters and a handheld version

Versatile mounting brackets and stands allow the EpiGlare to adapt to practice workflow

All devices offer over 9 hours of run time per charge; eliminating the need to use valuable lane charging wells and handles

Power indicator light ensures every test is at the right power level

"Dr. Epitropoulos has been working to improve glare disability testing for over a decade and our engineering team has been excited to build on that foundation. I know I would have wanted them in my lanes."
Dr. Johan Van Dalen, MD
CEO, Optego Vision, Tucson, AZ

Study Data

A multicenter study using the EpiGlare showed corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) was reduced for patients with cataracts while minimally affecting those without cataracts. Cataract patients stated the device accurately reflected the difficulty they experienced driving at night.*
