Document MRD, aperture and pupil measurements for records and insurance reimbursement
Mentor, Ohio (February 9, 2016) – Volk Optical has added a new Oculoplastics Mode to its Volk Eye Check portable ophthalmic exam tool. With this mode, the handheld Volk Eye Check provides fast, objective and accurate pre- and post-op measurements for clinical and cosmetic lid surgeries. The Volk Eye Check is simple to operate with automatic report generation for documentation.
Volk Eye Check’s Oculoplastics Mode analyzes 26 datapoints in under one minute, providing precise binocular capture of measurements including:
- MRD1 and MRD2, plus two additional points on each lid
- Palpebral Aperture and aperture at limbus
- Pupil diameter and iris diameter
- Pupil eccentricity
In addition, a grid scale provides a convenient way to measure and compare landmarks such as brow position, and Margin Crease Distance. Objective documentation of these characteristics is useful for insurance reimbursement, as well as providing “Before and After” evidence for patients and clinicians.
The Volk Eye Check’s touch-screen interface is easily navigated for use by a technician, nurse or doctor. Its real-time, accurate and objective results eliminate inter-clinician variability to enable quick decision making. The single-page Oculoplastics patient report includes side by side comparison diagram, and list of measurement values. The PDF report can be exported over wifi to be appended to electronic medical records and submitted for insurance approval.
In addition to the Oculoplastics Mode, the Volk Eye Check fully automates the analysis of ocular characteristics for general diagnosis in “Eye Check (EC)” Mode and for contact lens selection and fitting in “Contact Lens (CL)” Mode. The unit comes with a one year warranty and ongoing software upgrade support.
The Oculoplastics Mode is included on all newly purchased Volk Eye Check devices. To upgrade a previously purchased Volk Eye Check, contact a Volk representative. Volk is currently offering a 30 day money-back guarantee of Volk Eye Check with Oculoplastics Mode, complete with training and ongoing support.
