Boost for AMD detection.
THE REICHERT Foresee Preferential Hyperacuity Perimeter (PHP) is now available in the UK from Grafton Optical.
The Foresee PHP is a non-invasive visual field analyser for monitoring age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and early detection of conversion to choroidal neovascularisation (wet AMD or CNV).
According to clinical trials, the Foresee PHP technology is said to provide excellent accuracy in CNV detection, 82% sensitivity and 88% specificity.
Grafton MD Brian Bowles said: "In most cases, current care does not detect the progression of AMD at an early stage. But for the patient, early detection is essential for good visual outcome and can be a deciding factor in the ability to continue normal daily functions.
"The Foresee PHP provides this early warning."
The Reichert Foresee PHP allows for frequent monitoring of AMD patients while reducing technician time by up to 80%. It provides enhanced patient report tracking of the visual field changes over time. On site demonstrations are available.
