Tear Film Analyzer Brings Objective Measurement to Dry Eye Disease Diagnosis

Visiometrics system the only diagnostic to measure lines lost due to poor tear film
Costa Mesa, California (November 8, 2017) – Visiometrics’ new Tear Film Analyzer is a fast, objective, and non-invasive way to measure vision fluctuation caused by dry eye disease. By measuring patient Vision Breakup Time (VBUT), doctors can improve outcomes, increase satisfaction and grow revenue.

Visiometrics’ Tear Film Analyzer is the only diagnostic to measure lines lost due to poor tear film.

The Tear Film Analyzer is the only diagnostic tool to quantify VBUT – how long it takes a patient to lose one line of vision. There is no wait time for drops, strips or long protocols; the exam takes under one minute. By analyzing the tear film in its natural state, without disturbing it, VBUT during a Tear Film Analyzer exam more accurately reflects VBUT under real world conditions, and patient comfort is increased.

The objective measurement of the Tear Film Analyzer removes variability in patient reporting. It also provides a baseline to track the effectiveness of dry eye treatment. The easy-to-read report created by the Tear Film Analyzer aids in patient education, helping patients to see how their vision is affected by poor tear film. Better understanding increases patient compliance, improving outcomes and patient satisfaction.

The Tear Film Analyzer is available with an optional touch screen package, for a more compact footprint and faster navigation. The flat screen display can also be removed for patient discussions.

The Tear Film Analyzer will debut at the American Academy of Ophthalmology annual meeting in New Orleans, November 11-14

Visiometrics Adds Touchscreen to HD Analyzer

Conduct visual quality and tear film assessments without need of a laptop
Costa Mesa, California (October 2, 2017) –Visiometrics has added a Touch Screen Package to its HD Analyzer. The new upgrade option increases ease of use and reduces the system footprint for better practice workflow.

HDA w Touch Screen

The new Touch Screen Package for the HD Analyzer significantly reduces the system’s footprint.

The HD Analyzer provides objective measurement of visual quality to improve patient outcomes in cataract diagnosis, dry eye treatment and refractive surgery. The onboard touch screen replaces the laptop required to perform patient exams. With the screen mounted directly on the back of the HD Analyzer unit, the entire system can be confined to one small table.

An additional benefit of the HD Analyzer is its impact as a patient education tool to facilitate discussion of treatment plans and outcomes. The visual reporting provides a reference point for patients to better understand how a condition is affecting their vision. The flat screen display can be removed for patient discussions, with easier navigation and handling than the laptop version.

The Touch Screen Package includes a Surface Pro tablet, preloaded with Visiometrics HD Analyzer software, screen holders and an installation kit. The package can be purchased with a new HD Analyzer system or as an upgrade to an existing system. The Touch Screen Package is currently only available to users in the United States.

Visiometrics is currently offering incentives to purchase the Touch Screen Package when purchased with its HD Analyzer Total Care Warranty. The Total Care program includes all software upgrades, enhance interoperability and priority access to support, controlling service costs and keeping practices running smoothly. Both the Touch Screen Package and Total Care Warranty can be conveniently purchased online at www.visiometrics.com/shop/.

Visiometrics’ HD Analyzer objectively measures the quality of a patient’s vision

Visiometrics’ HD Analyzer objectively measures the quality of a patient’s vision. This measurement assesses the optics of the retina to identify potential issues, such as the early formation of cataracts. The ability to quantify visual performance removes subjectivity and provides documentation of changes from one visit to the next. The HD Analyzer’s measurement method allows a doctor to select and monitor appropriate treatment for each patient. As a patient education tool, measurements facilitate discussion of treatment plans and outcomes.

As part of Halma, Visiometrics will continue to focus on increasing worldwide adoption of its objective visual acuity system. Halma’s strong culture of product innovation will benefit Visiometrics’ customers as the company expands development of products that better patient outcomes.

“We could not have found a better harbor for our technology than Halma,” said Visiometrics president Jan Bonel. “Making this quantum leap forward will help us to turn the HD Analyzer into a common tool for all ophthalmologists and optometrists.”

Halma is a holding company with nearly 50 worldwide subsidiaries that develop and manufacture products that protect life and improve the quality of life for people worldwide.
