Thomson Software Solutions is the leading provider of software for eye care professionals in Europe and has users all over the world. This application joins a family of software for vision assessment and screening originally devised by Professor David Thomson.

Replace all your test types, near charts, near testing units etc. with over 500 test screens and images in one slick application.

The Vision Toolbox exploits the superb graphics capabilities of the iPad to provide a huge range of vision assessment tools for eye care professionals (ophthalmologists, optometrists, orthoptists and opticians).

Access different tests by simply rotating the iPad and view variations by swiping the screen. Select the test that you want directly by viewing the thumbnail gallery and draw on the screen using your finger. Pan and zoom some of the images or display as a slide show. No eye care professional can afford to be without it!

The tools are divided into five categories:

Near vision assessment:

By holding the iPad at a normal reading distance, The Vision Toolbox can be used to assess a wide range of near vision functions including:

- Test types (Adult and children's test types)
- LogMAR reading test
- LogMAR near charts
- Task images (Maps, books, newspaper etc. to ensure the patient can perform these real world tasks)
- Binocular vision tests (fixation disparity, binocularity, suppression, stereopsis, 3D red/green anaglyphs)
- Duochrome (dots, letters, rings)
- Amsler (positive and negative contrast, draw directly on charts and email the results)
- Fixation targets (clown, crosses, letters, cartoons)
- Miscellaneous (convergence, astigmatism, Maddox rod)

3 metre assessment:

View Vision Toolbox from 3 metres and you can assess a wide range of distance vision functions. Handy for home visits, vision screening or testing children.

- LogMAR charts
- Snellen charts
- Single letter charts
- Children's visual acuity (Tumbling Es, linear logMAR)
- Duochrome (dots, letters, rings)
- Cross cylinder (dots and rings)
- UK number plate test for driving (actual number plate fonts and correct spacing)
- Fixation targets (clown slide show to use during retinoscopy for example)

Patient information:

Wide range of images to help explain conditions to patients. Select the required image from a thumbnail gallery. Pan and zoom on all images and draw with your finger.

- Eye diagrams
- Eye disease (photographs of a wide range of anterior segment eye diseases)
- Front of the eye (images of the external eye)
- Retina (normal and abnormal fundi)
- Dispensing images
- Videos

Dispensing tools:

Replace your frame rule with a selection of on-screen rulers, protractors etc. Take advantage of the back-illuminated screen to measure CDs, bifocal heights, varifocals etc.


Use the toolkit to perform those tricky eye-related calculations.

- Visual acuity (convert between LogMAR, VAR, Snellen metres, Snellen ft, Resolution and Spatial frequency)
- LogMAR scorer (help with scoring a LogMAR chart)
- Vertex distance calculator
- Toric contact lens over-refraction calculator
- Transposition calculator

Ratings and Reviews

Cambridge Chap ,

Great software, a must for UK locum optometrists

Great software, I use for domiciliary clinics and as a back up when locuming, I much prefer and rely on this in practice rather than other commonly found test chart solutions. A full version of testchart 2000, with remote or dual screening designing for locums and domiciliary in mind would be a great addition to this already excellent range of products.

Not great

I bought this app for a pricy sum thinking it would live up to my expectations of an optometry/ophthalmology solution in one. The features are not great, videos incomplete and Most of the tools are impractical for use in the test room setting. If you are considering purchasing this for clinical use, as I had, then I would seriously think again.

Saying that some features are nice and if I had to price this app as it is, I would pay no more than £10. Please improve on this version if you are going to charge such a vast amount of money!!!

Vision toolbox

It really fails to deliver anything useful!
For me the essence of this package was a reading test type which would wow my patients, it really really doesn't do that !
It is very low tech and no better than my two current near vision cards.
What I personally would really like to see is, a page full of same size text, which I could then scroll across to make larger. It would be nice if I could also import texts depending on the patients interests and have 10 to 20 different varieties of text, not just 3!
Sure, the near binocular tests are nice and I might find the 3m tests useful very occasionally.
For £40 I was expecting something amazing, I really don't think I will ever use it!
