The non-contact tonometer complements the basic diagnostics portfolio for glaucoma screening
ZEISS has introduced a new non-contact tonometer called VISUPLAN® 500, with an aim to serve doctors with complete solutions for supporting better workflows. It has been designed keeping in mind the ease to use, and aims to identify patients with high intraocular pressure at an early stage.
Non-contact tonometers enable doctors to examine the patient’s eye without anaesthetics or fluorescein based on the air-puff principle. The technology is used to identify patients with high intraocular pressure and a corresponding risk for glaucoma. It complements the current gold standard in tonometry: the Goldmann applanation tonometer.
Another benefit for physicians is that the measurement can be done by practice and clinical staff as part of the general pre-test very early in the practice workflow. VISUPLAN® 500 from ZEISS facilitates the delegation with its intuitive user interface with one-button touch screen operation and the automatic alignment functions make measurements user independent.
According to Dr. Ludwin Monz, President and CEO – Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, “Since many years we have been a trusted partner for physicians looking for advanced diagnosis and treatment devices offering them complete solutions for optimal workflows. With our non-contact tonometer we round of our offering to ophthalmologists but also other eye care specialists.”
