Stereo Optical Launches 3 Stereotests Including LEA Symbols

New Tests to Screen Young Children Add to Extensive Product Line

Dallas, TX, Essilor Instruments today announced the launch of three stereotests including LEA Symbols, the Original Stereo Fly, Butterfly, and Randot®, by its Stereo Optical division. Stereo depth perception tests are an effective and easy-to-use method of screening stereoscopic vision for all ages. The three new stereotests including LEA Symbols are designed to screen the vision of young children and supplement the existing extensive Stereo Optical product line.

Lea Hyvarinen, MD, created the LEA Symbols® in 1976. Dr. Hyvarinen designed the circle, square, apple, and house so that each symbol measured visual acuity similarly. Numerous professional associations, including the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Ophthalmology, have recommended LEA Symbols as vision screening tests for young children in a policy statement.

“Stereo tests help to detect visual problems such as stereopsis, amblyopia, suppression and strabismus. We are thrilled that Dr. Lea trusts the reputation of Stereo Optical and the quality of our products to grant us the license for production of these new stereo tests for young children,” said Samy Lauriette, Senior Vice President, Essilor Instruments Americas.

Stereo Optical, a division of Essilor Instruments, has released new tests for OPTEC® PLUS. OPTEC PLUS is a smart vision screener that includes an extensive library of tests administered with a user-friendly interface in a single machine.
