Used in 31 Lanes and More To Follow

Eye Institute is New Zealand’s leading private tertiary Ophthalmic facility.  We examined and compared several different options for our consulting rooms and Chart2020 ticked all the boxes.   We have been using Chart2020 in the 23 consulting rooms of our main location since 2014, and have recently installed 9 more in one of our new satellite practices.

We like that fact that the system can be installed on whatever hardware we choose which allows us to future-proof the consulting rooms and makes it easier to upgrade systems.  It also makes maintenance easier as the eye charts then become simply part of the general IT rather than needed specific servicing, cleaning, or special bulbs being replaced like projector charts do.

Chart 2020 is very stable, easy to calibrate, and has all the test charts and features you could want.    It is customizable and has a range of options for controlling the charts.  We prefer the simplicity of an infra-red remote which works 100% of the time, but the iPad app is useful to have a combined controller and repeater screen set up for easy and comfortable viewing.
We find the Contrast Sensitivity analysis particularly useful for vision correction surgery for special occupations and reports.  This system also has the ability to add educational slides and videos – you can add consent and marketing videos that are specific to your practice.

One of the most important features that Chart2020 has  is the ability to calibrate screen luminance to 85cd/m2 or whatever luminance you choose.  This allows us to have complete consistency between different rooms and facilities and gives us visual acuity measurements that we can compare to ETDRS charts.   This is not a common feature on most electronic eye charts.

Now that  support for Chart2020 is direct with the programmer and manufacturer instead of a distributor, service and support has been incredibly prompt and effective.  This has meant great customer service and the ability to work on new ideas for electronic charts and how they are used.

All our practices will be changed over to Chart2020 and I highly recommend it for any sized practice, whether it is one room or a hundred.

My practice feels high tech

Researched others, settled on Chart2020. Never been happier. Patients love it too. I run 3 lanes, and all my patients can feel the hi-tech feel of my testing room.I have been receiving fantastic after sales support, to help me customize the system to my exact needs. Product is stable, flexible and provides lots of clinical feedback which makes my testing more effective and quicker.

Intuitive, accurate and trouble-free

I have been using Chart2020 for 4 yeasr now. The system is intuitive, accurate and trouble-free. The binocular testing is very thorough. I tested many programs and am happy to have selected Chart2020.

When looking for a flexible and cost-effective way to equip our clinical skills laboratory with vision charts we came across Chart 2020. The system meets all of our requirements in terms of chart types and flexibility of display (viewing distance, incorporation of a number of methods for determining astigmatic refractive error, stereo acuity and more). The unique ability to run the chart software remotely via an iPad interface allows us to have a number of units in an open plan teaching space (something not afforded by IR remotes) and the chart editor allows us to configure units for any given teaching and learning situation. These advantages, along with the willingness of the Chart 2020 team to develop and modify charts and tests to meet our requirements means that the system is an asset to our teaching program.

Used in all my practices

Werner-Fourie-optometrist

Chart2020 is amazing. It allows me to test quickly and efficiently because I can setup my own test sequences for different exam types, and then it is very easy to select based upon patient type. With the fantastic clarity of the optotype, the amazing calibration tools, and the wide range of letter sizes and steps, the flexibility of the system is simply not available in any other package.

I highly recommend Chart2020 and assure you that you will not regret it.

Best investment our practice has made

Marnus-Zwarts-optometrist

I started using Chart2020 in 2012, and certainly can not imagine how I ever tested without this wonderful system. It is intuitive, well thought out and most importantly thorough. I love using my iPad to control the system. Being able to see the charts on the iPad, as the patient sees them, is invaluable. My personal favorite is the polarization section, where phorias can be tested in increments as small as a quarter prism diopter.

Chart2020 is the best investment our practice has made in recent years. In our clinical optometric setup, at the Pretoria Eye Institute, Chart2020 is a must and it makes examining eyes exciting again!

Deep in features, but is completely simple to use

AriellaM

Updated to Version 8 – an easy transition and I love using it! The new Chart2020 PRO is so deep in features, but is completely simple to use without ever having to read a manual. Very intuitive and provides great clinical information to help me treat patients with ease and more accuracy. The included “Wizards” with the Chart 2020 Connect app for the iPad takes a complex test such as (e)ETDRS or Contrast Sensitivity and make it fast, simple and fun for me and the patient.

My diagnostic procedures have been simplified

This is the best technology addition to my practice to date. With over 30 years of experience, I have never had such an amazing testing experience as I have had with Chart2020. My diagnostic procedures have been simplified, along with the ability to easily customize the system to my individual needs. Testing efficiency has improved dramatically as I can either use my custom testing sequences or immediately access any chart from the library on demand. I am now able to spend less time per patient, without compromising quality of patient care. My patients also seem happier with this “high tech” system.
