1. My staff checks the IOP of the patients while they wait in the waiting room. This saves me a couple of minutes per patient. When you see more than 30 patients a day, that’s at least an hour of my time saved.

  2. Visual field assessment is an important part of monitoring glaucoma, although a common problem encountered in real life practice is that it does not always have good repeatability. The Compass is especially useful in this regard because of its retinal tracking ability. Also, there is no need for addition lenses while performing the examination for presbyopic patients so there is no worry about lens fogging which may interfere with patient performance while wearing masks.

    Aside from its function as a perimeter, it is also a scanning ophthalmoscope which produces high quality images of the optic disc and retina. Structure-function correlation is demonstrated right on the print out making it easy to visualize and explain to the patient. Everything is done in one stop. Altogether, I think the Compass is a very convenient, practical and useful tool to enhance the efficiency and workflow of my glaucoma practice.

  3. Thanks to DRSplus, we doubled the number of patients that are in our diabetic retinopathy screening.

  4. Thanks to the high resolution of its confocal true color images, UWF imaging with the EIDON has been particularly helpful to me for detecting and evaluating hemorrhages and microvascular lesions in patients with diabetic retinopathy.

  5. Images from fundus photography have a critical role in guiding treatment decisions and the confocal true color images from the EIDON platform provide a natural perception of the retina’s appearance that represents vital information in my daily practice.

  6. Rebound tonometry is a great alternative to the Goldmann applanation tonometer in both screening and follow-up of glaucoma patients. It is a very reliable technology with a wide range of clinical applications and its use has become widespread in our practices.

  7. With the benefit of true color imaging, I am confident in my ability to discriminate between normal tissue and potential signs of pathology. (EIDON, DRSplus)

  8. DRSplus is an efficient and easy-to-use device, that can be used with a wide range of patients. It is an extremely versatile device. It can be used from different type of operators: ophthalmologists,
    diabetologists, nurses or optometrists.

  9. As early adopters of Icare technology, we have many years of experience with the devices. The ic100 has been a wonderful advancement.  The added features that assist the operator with proper alignment ensures the measurements are repeatable and accurate. It is a true timesaver that provides us with measurements we can trust.

  10. In patients with glaucoma, there is a possibility of their eye pressure either fluctuating significantly or being outside the target range (as determined by their doctor). Both these changes are associated with worsening of glaucoma. Monitoring for these changes between office visits can help reassure the doctor and the patient that the therapy is adequate and that the patient is compliant with treatment. If the eye pressure is not stable, then the doctor can recommend additional treatment or tailor the eye drop regimen to stabilize the pressure before permanent loss of tissue or visual field occurs.
