For Your Patients and Practice

Head mounted perimeter

■ The NovaVision HMP (Head-Mounted Perimetry) provides a portable option for visual field screening. The device is perfect for use in satellite offices, hospitals, nursing homes and for patients who might not otherwise be able to perform a test, the company says. The device uses a suprathreshold three-zone testing strategy to provide increased sensitivity, as it tests at 4° vs. 6° intervals. The HMP features an intuitive, touch-screen interface and transfers data into an office's network, according to Nova Vision.
