Haag-Streit Diagnostics introduced the OTC Eye Analyzer and Octopus EyeSuite I9 Perimetry Software Update the 35th Congress of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS 2017) in Lisbon, Portugal.
EYESTAR 900: The comprehensive OCT eye analyzer
Eyestar 900 is a new Swept Source-based OCT device for refractive, cataract, and glaucoma surgeons. Precise OCT measurements deliver elevation based topography maps of the front and back corneal surface. In addition, 2- or 3-dimensional images of the anterior segment including the crystalline lens are presented. The modular concept of the Eyestar also includes biometry of the entire eye from the cornea to the retina.
Eyestar’s fully automated data acquisition process improves the precision of results, leads to greater efficiency and provides superb usability: Both eyes are examined without user interference and a short acquisition time grants optimal patient comfort and cooperation.
The Eyestar 900 is powered by EyeSuite, Haag-Streit’s intuitive software tool that enables seamless integration of the device into any practice environment. It also includes the cutting edge IOL cataract planning software that uses the latest-generation IOL calculation methods such as Hill-RBF, Barrett and Olsen.
Octopus simplified with EyeSuite i9 Perimetry update
Haag-Streit also presented the redesigned EyeSuite i9 Perimetry software at this year’s ESCRS in Lisbon. The update of the software that is used in combination with the Octopus perimeter aims at improving software usability.
Developed for effectiveness, it features a step-by-step workflow that allows even inexperienced users to quickly learn how to run a perimetry examination. It also contains a lot of built-in support such as color codes when results are out of normal ranges or pop-up windows with background information as needed. The popular 7-in-1 and series printouts are now also available directly in the software.
“The idea behind the development was to keep simple things simple, but also to make complex things possible," Dr. Reiner Herrmann, Director of Marketing and Sales at Haag-Streit Diagnostics, said in a company news release. "Therefore, the software effectively works on two hierarchical levels. The first level contains all the essential information to perform high quality perimetry testing and analysis. The second level is a bit hidden and provides additional information and customization options to allow optimization of the software to a specific clinical environment or even specific research projects.”
To ensure that the software is user-friendly, its design is based on the input and feedback of ophthalmologists, optometrists, and visual field technicians from around the world who ensure that it is “simpler and better organized than previous versions”, “easy and fast to learn,” and “providing a lot of really helpful clinical information”.
