Glaucoma Diagnosis and Monitoring
Heidelberg Retina Tomograph
It is estimated that over two million Americans have some type of glaucoma and half of them do not know it. Because vision lost to glaucoma cannot be restored, early detection and treatment is essential.
During the past decade, major eye centers around the world have used scanning laser systems from Heidelberg Engineering for their research and clinical work.
The Heidelberg Retina Tomograph is an advanced diagnostic tool that can detect glaucoma at its earliest stages. To develop this technology, Heidelberg Engineering integrated the experience from more than one million exams, advice from hundreds of users, and research data from around the world. They added to that the latest available technology in electronics, optics, and software, creating a glaucoma detection system that has become the system of choice for ophthalmologists throughout the world.
Why we’ve invested in the Heidelberg Retina Tomograph:
- Study results have confirmed the technology provides consistent data leading to precise diagnosis of glaucoma.
- The Heidelberg can accurately differentiate between normal eyes and early glaucomatous eyes – before any vision loss has occurred.
- The three-dimensional analysis by laser scanning tomography has been shown to be superior to all other imaging technologies.
- Because of its advantages, this technology is now generally accepted and used to provide the best service possible for glaucoma patients and patients at risk.
