KAEPS is proud to offer Phoroptor Breath Shields to protect you and your staff during the pandemic...and many years to come. Designed by Dr. Chip Richardson and made from durable, 1/8” chemical resistant PETG plastic, these shields work seamlessly with your work flow.  Does not aggravate fogging of the phoroptor lenses, but instead provides a safer way for refractions with a patient’s mask partially lowered.  Easy to put on and take off.  Works with AO/Reichert/Topcon style phoroptors with a 21mm vertex adjustment ring.  Patients can be refracted without the worry of increased respiratory droplet exposure. $20 per breath shield, including shipping (minimum 2 per order). To order, e-mail Liz@kyeyemds.org.
