ZEISS strives to serve doctors with complete solutions to support better workflows with the introduction of the non-contact tonometer VISUPLAN® 500. Made with ease of use in mind it assists in identifying patients with high intraocular pressure early in the practice workflow.
Non-contact tonometers enable doctors to examine the patient’s eye without anesthetics 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: applanation after Goldmann. Another benefit for the 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 automatic alignment functions making measurements user independent.
“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, says Dr. Ludwin Monz, President and CEO of Carl Zeiss Meditec AG.
