Vutest is the creation of a company committed to ocular research and the development of sight testing and ophthalmic equipment for almost a century. Unique binocular vision sight testing systems have evolved at the Northampton base of EyeLab Ltd since the introduction of Infinity Balance eye examinations by the founder of the company A. E. Turville.
Vision Screening systems were conceived and developed for industry and schools as early as the 1950's. These were in use until the introduction of Vutest, the world's first PC driven sight test, which was marketed by Keeler Ltd (Windsor) from 1993.
Further research and development has led to today's 'online' version of Vutest and, as a pilot study, this has successfully replaced the original desk-top Vutest employed by the Northamptonshire Health Authority.
Vutest satisfies the EEC Regulations in respect of companies' obligation to arrange sight tests for DSE users. This is covered in the UK by the Health and Safety (DSE) Regulations 1992. Regulation 5 'Eyes and Eyesight'.
A 'junior' or 'light' version of Vutest 'online' is available for schools and education authorities.
Vutest does not use or require any hardware or special glasses to be worn for the tests and does not require supervision or any form of judgement or checking by a trained person. As a result Vutest is ideally suited as a universal and comprehensive company vision screening tool for office and mobile / outdoor staff use.
