(The Octopus 900's) ability to undertake routine static visual fields, such as a 24-2, and the extensive flexibility it offers clinical researchers to acquire significant data has really attracted people's attention.
Harlow, Essex (PRWEB UK) 17 January 2014
Haag-Streit UK, the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard optometry and ophthalmic equipment, is about to embark on a roadshow to showcase the Octopus 900 perimeter in the UK, due to a significant increase of interest in the product.
The roadshow is due to take place at numerous locations throughout the UK during January and February. The series of visits was organised by Sam Laidlaw, HS-UK Product Manager for the Haag-Streit products. The roadshow will give Ophthalmologists and Visual Field Technicians the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the Octopus 900, using their own patients. Staff will receive practical demonstrations and an explanation of data analysis.
The Octopus 900 uses a full-size, 180 degree Goldmann-size bowl, which enables the user to conduct kinetic visual fields. It is the only perimeter of its kind to offer four methods of perimetry in one instrument, including; standard white/white, blue/yellow, flicker and true Goldmann perimetry. Full threshold testing in less than two minutes per eye and automated eye tracking enable a quick exam, increasing comfort for the patient.
Sam Laidlaw, HS-UK Product Manager, said, “The Octopus 900 is already recognised at a large number of hospitals for producing high-quality kinetic visual fields. However, its ability to undertake routine static visual fields, such as a 24-2, and the extensive flexibility it offers clinical researchers to acquire significant data has really attracted people’s attention. It truly sets the Octopus 900 apart from other visual analysers.”
