What is the VMax Refractor?

You probably assume you already have the best vision possible, but through new advancements in vision technology, it is now possible to further improve and maximize your vision. Tahoe Sierra Eye and Optical recently purchased the state-of-the-art VMax Refractor, which makes an eye exam 5x's more accurate than a traditional eye exam and provides a quality of vision not attainable until now.

 

One of only 100 VMax Refractors in the Country.

It enables us to get an even more precise refraction (the process which we use to check your prescription) than using the phoropter (the 'which is better "1" or "2"? machine'). The VMax refraction is also easier for the patient and supplies the first ever prescription for night driving
