Sight Selector Practice Edition is for use on PCs and MAC computers within your office and optical store. We offer over 125 program topics, each containing both a narrated video and a series of 3D images. Purchasing one license allows you to install these programs on as many computers as you want within one office location making it highly affordable.
How do I purchase the Sight Selector Practice Edition?
Contact PEC at 800-436-9126 or 281-583-5577 Monday – Friday 8:00 am to 5:30 pm CST to speak with a representative about placing your order.
How is the Sight Selector Practice Edition different from other patient education programs that include video and animation?
The Sight Selector Practice Edition uses a combination of 3D animations with real-life patient perspective scenes to help patients better relate to their eye conditions and treatment options. Our license fees are for multiple computers within a single practice location and at a fraction of the cost of other similar programs. See pricing information under the “Pricing” section above.
Do I get the IOL Counselor and LVC Counselor Interactive Tools with the Sight Selector Practice Edition for no extra charge?
Yes. Starting with Version 3.10, we have added both of these interactive vision simulation tools.
What is the IOL Counselor Interactive Tool for?
The IOL Counselor provides simulations of the differences that the various IOLs would make in a patient’s post-operative vision using both day and nighttime scenarios. It also contains simulations that explain refractive errors. Using the slider bar, patients are systematically led from standard to premium IOL simulations depicting how they might see post-operatively in both day and nighttime scenarios.
What is the LVC Counselor Interactive Tool for?
The LVC Counselor provides an overview of conventional versus custom laser vision correction outcomes. It also contains simulations that explain refractive errors. Using the slider bar, patients are systematically led from conventional to custom simulations depicting how they might see post-operatively in both day and nighttime scenarios.
Does the Sight Selector Practice Edition allow me to create and name playlists?
Yes. To create, name, or play back a playlist, click on the small down arrow button located just under the “Please Choose A Category” header.
Build your playlist by selecting the topics you want from the program list on the left (one at a time), then click on “Transfer Topic”. This creates a “Current Playlist” which you can play or repeat by selecting “Repeat Videos” or “Play Selected Videos” below the list.
To save the playlist you created in the “Current Playlist”, click on “Save Playlist” where you will then be asked to name the playlist. Type in a name for this specific playlist and click on the arrow button to the right, pointing toward the “Saved Playlists” section.
To play back one of your Saved Playlists, clear the list in the “Current Playlist”, select the name of the list you want to play and load it back into “Current Playlist” and then select “Play Selected Videos” or “Repeat Videos”.
