The Great Glaucoma Boom: Is Your Practice Equipped?

Sep 24, 2014 | Uncategorized

With the number of glaucoma cases expected to double by 2030, now’s the time to turn your practice into a glaucoma profit center. How? With the right equipment, of course.

Here are three instruments we recommend.

Haag-Streit Octopus 600
Haag-Streit’s new perimeter is designed for efficiency and patient throughput. It combines accurate early detection and progression monitoring into one compact unit to save you time and precious real estate. And, Octopus 600 doesn’t need a dark room, so you’re free to install it just about anywhere and connect it to EMR.

Reichert 7CR Non-Contact Tonometer
You already own a tonometer, but only Reichert’s 7CR can provide IOPcc (corneal-compensated IOP) and IOP just one measurement. Because IOPcc isn’t affected by lens thickness or surgical procedures like LASIK, it’s one of the best indicators of glaucoma. And best of all, it only takes seconds to use, which will shave time off patient exams.

Canon CR-2 Plus AF Retinal Camera
New from Canon, the CR-2 Plus comes standard with non-mydriatic fundus autofluorescence (FAF) photography, which can help you screen for glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and other diseases with a non-invasive click of the trigger. Not only does it speed up exams, but it eliminates unnecessary repeat visits. Plus, it’s easy to use for technicians, which will keep you on their good side.
