Torrance, CA, November 08, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Today, Kowa Optimed announced it will offer special pricing for the Kowa AP-7000 perimeter at this year’s American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.

“We are very excited to have our AP-7000 available at such an exceptional price for our guests at the AAO,” says Kowa’s national sales manager, Rick Torney. “The AP-7000 perimeter is such a useful tool; I know that guests will be extremely impressed by its capabilities.”

Guests of Kowa Optimed’s booth (#3739) will be able to get an interactive look at the incredible quality and precision diagnostics of the AP-7000 perimeter. The Kowa booth will have an AP-7000 perimeter set up for guests to test for themselves or have a Kowa representative give a demonstration. The AAO meeting price will be available only at the AAO show from November 16-19th and for U.S. domestic sales only. In addition to the limited time pricing, guests who purchase a Kowa AP-7000 at the show will receive a pair of Kowa YF Series Binoculars, valued at $120.

About the Kowa AP-7000:
Kowa’s AP-7000, the next generation of perimeters, provides reliable and consistent assessment results of a patient’s visual field. Due to Kowa’s extensive normative database, which considers both the central field and the periphery, the Kowa AP-7000 delivers consistent, accurate assessments.

Full threshold modes offer macular, central and peripheral coverage up to 80°, while screening modes provide swift evaluation of the visual field. To shorten test times, quick modes are available for both threshold and screening modes. Static perimetry can be linked with fundus images from cameras, OCT and SLO to define specific test locations on the retina.

With its ergonomic, compact design, the AP-7000 offers additional comfort to patients, easy operation for the clinician and fits perfectly within the practice. In addition, the Kowa AP-7000 has the following features:

· Network ready with built in PC
· Easy networking to other systems for data correlation
· Exports patient data, test results & image files to your EHR system
· Stores and print field plots with ease
· Links to Kowa retinal camera

Kowa Optimed and the AP-7000 can be found at booth number 3739 in Hall G next to the Academy Resource Center and the AAO Learning Lounge. Pricing for the Kowa AP-7000 will be released next week along with pricing for the four other AAO meeting special offers.
