My newest visual fields analyser & the 4th upgrade since I've been in practice, is the Swiss made Haag-Streit Octopus 900. It offers two different testing protocols: Threshold & Kinetic. Threshold is the traditional test for field loss from such diseases as glaucoma and macular degeneration. Kinetic is a more specialized neurological test focusing on the optic nerve and peripheral retina, and is essential in documenting loss from conditions such as head injury. Taken together these tests offer a more complete assessment of the Function of vision from two very different pathways in our visual field. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: The Octopus 900 represents the most complete 90 degree full field projection perimeter available today. It allows for testing in all levels of disease including early detection, tracking progression or performing the most sensitive examinations at the end stage of disease. Novel technology has made Octopus the fastest, most efficient and most accurate perimeter on the market. It all starts with TOP, an exclusive strategy that maximizes patient compliance and minimizes chair time, with thresholds in a blazing 2.5 minutes. What’s more, it detects glaucomatous changes far earlier than any other perimeter, while fixation control adjusts for fixation losses versus simply detecting them.
