Perkins hand-held tonometers have been providing reliable measurements that correlate strongly with the industry gold-standard Haag-Streit Goldmann tonometer for decades.
Harlow, UK (PRWEB UK) 7 November 2014
Haag-Streit UK (HS-UK), the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard optometry and ophthalmic equipment, is pleased to announce that the popular Perkins Mk3 tonometer is now available to purchase with a box of Tonosafe disposable prisms.
The Perkins is synonymous with being the ‘gold-standard’ in hand-held applanation tonometers. It is comfortable to hold, well-balanced and has been specifically designed to examine patients who have often been difficult to assess by traditional applanation tonometry methods, including; bed-ridden, wheelchair bound paediatric and community-based patients. Its innovative built-in LED illumination produces an enhanced image of the tonometer mires, permitting use regardless of ambient lighting conditions.
The Perkins Mk3 tonometer is now available to purchase with a box of 20 Tonosafe disposable prisms for the promotional price of £925 (+VAT). This is offered in addition to the ‘standard’ Perkins Mk3 model, which is supplied with a re-usable Goldmann prism (available from the HS-UK e-shop for £965 +VAT).
Sam Laidlaw, HS-UK Product Manager commented; “Perkins hand-held tonometers have been providing reliable measurements that correlate strongly with the industry gold-standard Haag-Streit Goldmann tonometer for decades. Their proven accuracy, long-lasting integrated battery and ergonomic hand-held design mean that, when combined with Tonosafe disposable prisms, they form the perfect piece of portable ophthalmic equipment for both clinical and non-clinical situations.”
