Nidek TS-610 Fully Assisted Refraction System

Refractor and Optometry System

The TS-610 with FARS enhances the efficiency of the refraction, improves workflow and staff allocation in the facility and mitigates the risk of repetitive strain among staff personnel. As each patient proceeds through the test independently, a single staff member can cover multiple devices. Efficient refractions allow the facility to focus on patient consultation and value-added examinations. The space-saving design minimizes the device footprint and FARS enhances the patient experience through a simplified examination procedure

  • Dramatically changing the Optometry landscape
  • Fully Assisted Refraction System Application
  • Joystick controller and Control console
  • Time saving, Fresh experience and Space saving


The Fully Assisted Refraction System (FARS) is an optional kit for the NIDEK Tabletop Refraction System TS-610, used to determine the full correction by the patient’s response based on objective data or glasses data input by the staff. The kit consists of a joystick controller and the Fully Assisted Refraction System application software. You can benefit from
an easy and comfortable subjective refraction through NIDEK’s established and reliable test algorithms, a voice-guided experience, and a patient-operated joystick control. This system brings the efficiency of the refraction and contributes to the improvement of the workflow and staff allocation in a facility. In addition, FARS enhances the user experience
through a simple and fresh examination conducted independently by the patient.

Transform your optometry scene greatly with a small controller.

  1. Fully Assisted Refraction System application
    Testing proceeds according to the patient’s responses, and the test progress and times are displayed on the Windows computer/tablet. A staff member can check the test status on the screen even if they do not accompany the patient
  2. Joystick controller
    According to the voice guidance, a patient responds to questions with the joystick controller. When the patient has trouble with operations, they can inform the staff by pressing the help button
  3. Control console
    A chart and a measurement value are shown on the control console as in the conventional measurement.
