The new fixation target is an excellent addition to the MAIA as it will help reduce testing time for those patients who have trouble fixating, as well as making test results more accurate.
Harlow, Essex (PRWEB UK) 14 October 2013
Haag-Streit UK (HS-UK), the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard optometry and ophthalmic equipment, is pleased to announce some exciting new features which have been added to CenterVue’s MAIA microperimeter and DRS retinal camera.
The DRS retinal camera now boasts a new automated image mosaic function which allows any registered Eye Knowledge Network (EKN, Cloud storage and telemedicine solution) user to take up to 7 different fields and piece these together to get a clear view of the eye in one shot. The result is a high-resolution image of the retina which can be reviewed online via the EKN platform.
For a limited period of time, HS-UK will be offering any customer who purchases a DRS retinal camera a free EKN license for the first year.
The MAIA microperimeter is the ideal tool for detecting and monitoring retinal functional changes and observing the effectiveness of treatment, over time. It now boasts new functionality including multiple fixation targets at selectable locations. This will help patients with central scotoma visualise the target during the sensitivity test. This new feature enhances the identification of the PRL and decreases the examination time in patients with highly unstable fixation.
Jacqui Kenyon, HS-UK Product Manager said, “The new fixation target is an excellent addition to the MAIA as it will help reduce testing time for those patients who have trouble fixating, as well as making test results more accurate. The feature is also available as an upgrade for those customers who already have a MAIA in their clinic or practice.”
The MAIA has also undergone a complete redesign and is now both lighter and more compact. The microperimeter is now more ergonomic and this allows the chin rest to be cleaned more easily.
