The University awarded a contract for Digital Automated Refraction Systems.
Digital Automated Refraction systems are customizable devices that integrate with one another directly and pass data back and forth. These are used to derive the best data for Cataract and Refractive procedures. They can also be used for maximum efficiency for day to day eye exams.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) The refracture systems will provide state of the art Examination digital lanes for the highest level of care for the Cataract, Cornea and Refractive surgery patients.
