Hello everyone,
I'm an optometry student and it's time for us to choose which equipment we'd like to buy. I'm having a difficult time choosing a BIO. Some optometrists are saying that practices will provide it for you/ you don't use BIO much in practice so just purchase a mid-tier one.

We have an option between:
Keeler wireless vantage (~3000AUD)
Neitz (~3300AUD but comes with BIO lens)
Scan Optics (not a fan)
Heine (1900-3000)
and lastly, the new spectacle-mounted BIO (Spectra iris) for ~1950AUD

I'm quite comfortable with either of the above except for the Scan Optics BIO. I realize that the prices may be a lot more expensive because I'm from Australia.
I would love to hear your experience and advice on which one to purchase.

Thank you!
