The Elektron Technology ophthalmic website is home to the Macular Pigment Screener (MPS II) and Henson Perimeters. They form three core products for screening and monitoring the two leading causes of irreversible blindness in the world.
The insurance policy against sight loss
The MPS II is a compact, portable, affordable device that brings macular pigment (MP) screening to any patient anywhere. It’s purpose is to detect low MP, which has been shown to be a significant modifiable risk factor for developing Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). Once low MP has been detected it needs managing upward through diet, supplementation and lifestyle on order to minimise the risk of early onset of AMD. AMD is the leading cause of irreversible sight loss in the over 50’s and the conversation about AMD is getting louder as the potential size of the problem becomes more apparent.
Remarkably small in size yet reassuringly abundant in features, the Henson 7000 can perform all central field screening tests. Weight, ease of use, performance and speed of operation have all influenced its design.
The Henson 8000 perimeter has the multiple and single supra-threshold programs associated with the Henson range but also has threshold tests that meet and, in some cases, exceed current instrument performance.
