The innovative built-in LED illumination produces an enhanced image of the tonometer mires, permitting use regardless of ambient lighting conditions. It also produces lower operating temperatures, giving greater comfort to both the operator and the patient.
The Perkins Mk3 hand-held applanation tonometer contains a long-lasting integral rechargeable battery. In conjunction with the enhanced LED illumination, less energy is required and so increased operating times of the Perkins tonometer are achieved.
The easy-to-use ‘Tonogrip’ tonometer prism holder allows for straightforward placement of both sterilised Goldmann reusable tonometer prisms and Tonosafe disposable tonometer prisms.
The hand-held Perkins tonometer is comfortable to hold and well-balanced. It has been specifically designed to examine patients who have often been difficult to assess by traditional applanation tonometry methods. These include; bed-ridden, wheelchair-bound, paediatric and community-based patients.
