Haag-Streit UK (HS-UK), the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard optometry and ophthalmic equipment, is pleased to announce the launch of the new Octopus 600 perimeter.

The Octopus 600 is Haag-Streit’s first TFT-based perimeter. This compact, standalone instrument runs White/White perimetry and the PULSAR method for early detection of glaucoma. It boasts a short test duration of just 2-4 minutes for a full threshold exam.

The Octopus 600 can be operated in just a few clicks by a junior assistant or receptionist. Its silent operation, with no fans or motors, enables you to place the perimeter anywhere in your office.

PULSAR is a patented flicker stimulus, showing a ring pattern with different contrast levels in counter phase. The Octopus 600’s new PULSAR functionality presents a contrast modulated ring target that flickers at 30 Hz in counter phase. It requires no more than a simple click for every target that appears.

Sam Laidlaw, HS-UK Product Manager, commented, “The Octopus 600 boasts PULSAR perimetry as well as standard White/White strategies in one instrument. PULSAR allows detection of the early stages of glaucoma easily and efficiently, while the standard white/white tests can be used to monitor long-term follow-up. The Octopus 600 demonstrates Haag-Streit’s continued innovation in the area of visual fields.”

The Octopus 600 performs standard white-on-white perimetry using modern TFT technology. By using adapted stimulus sizes it reaches the wide dynamic range associated with projection-type perimeters for long-term follow-up. Automated Eye Tracking (AET) recognises the position of the pupil and keeps the eye centred.

The Octopus 600 is now available to order. For further information, please contact Haag-Streit UK on (01279) 456255, email octopus(at)haag-streit-uk(dot)com or visit http://www.haagstreituk.com/octopus600.
