    What to look for in an Auto Refractor

    Hello,

    looking to purchase a new auto refractor.

    It should be automated, able to take K readings, Accuracy, not known to give issues and easily calibrated.

    is there anything else Iím missing?

    If someone can make a recommendation Iím looking for something entry level priced from Nidek, TopCon and pretty open to suggestions based on experience.

    thank you

    I fit contacts and need topo. I love my Tomey RT-7000. First thing I bought in 2008 with the bank loan. I would buy it again. Workhorse.

    I've had a Nidek Tonoref II for about 10 years, never any issues or maintenance. Produces more accurate prescriptions than most of the MDs in my area.

    I like the ones that automatically track the gaze. My old one I had to physically adjust every time the patient made a small movement and with kids especially this is priceless.
