The OPD Scan II (Nidek, Japan) is a device that gives information about corneal topography, wavefront, autorefraction, keratometry, and pupillometry, all in one instrument.
Evaluation included a dilated ophthalmoscopic exam to detect DR, early and advanced AMD, and optic nerve cupping due to glaucoma; and autorefraction to detect URE at published sensitivities and specificities (Moss et al.

For the 1999-2000, 2001-2002, and 2003-2004 surveys, participants also were asked questions regarding vision function, and the physical examination included a vision examination in which visual acuity was measured before and after an objective autorefraction test (optical correction measured by all autorefractor).

Most of us keep a watching brief and try to ensure that we are compliant with the spirit and letter of the contract, despite the fact that a one-shot sight test is just about the worst way to deliver primary eye care, short of autorefraction.
