The HandyRef-K / HandyRef is a Handheld Ref / Keratometer Handheld Refractometer that is the portable solution for accurate refraction and keratometry measurements anytime and anywhere.

The HandyRef-K / HandyRef is lightweight and also has excellent weight distribution. Its compact design makes it easy to hold, balance, and use. Intelligently designed button layout is also useful in one-handed operation. New full graphic 3.5-inch color LCD is 40% larger than the previous model. Clear screen design and intuitive icons provide high user-friendliness. The measurement data of 50 patients (100 eyes) can be saved in the main body memory. For inexperienced patients like children, newly added melody function can ease patient’s anxiety and draw attention. Data can be transferred quickly and easily to PC and NIDEK RT.
