Harlow, United Kingdom, April 26, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Accurate assessment of Intra-Ocular Pressure (IOP) is essential for the diagnosis and management of Glaucoma. The Perkins series of hand-held tonometers have been providing generations of Ophthalmologists and Optometrists Worldwide with reliable measurements that correlate strongly with the industry gold-standard Haag-Streit Goldmann tonometer.
The Perkins Mk3, designed and produced in the UK, provides the same high level of precision synonymous with all Haag-Streit tonometers whilst the advances in the improved ergonomic hand-held design, an integrated battery and excellent internal LED illumination are essential enhancements for the demands of daily clinical practice.
The Perkins Mk3, like its predecessors, can use either reusable Goldmann tonometer prisms or Tonosafe disposable applanation prisms to minimise the risk of patient cross-contamination whilst the easy-to-use "Tonogrip" prism holder allows for straightforward placement of sterilised prisms, providing safety and accuracy on contact.
