Eye Check From Volk, a Portable Ophthalmic Exam Tool

MUMBAI: Volk Optical's Eye Check, an electronic handheld ocular measurement device, aids in the diagnosis of ophthalmic abnormalities. Capable of a number of key measurements including pupil diameter, horizontal visible iris diameter, inter-pupillary distance, margin reflex distance, pupil eccentricity and strabismus angle, Volk Eye Check helps practitioners screen, diagnose and document ocular characteristics for contact lens fitting and general diagnostic purposes.

Volk Eye Check's intuitive user interface is easily navigated by physicians and support staff for seamless integration into the practice environment. Its real-time, accurate and objective results enable quick decision making and can be output to electronic records management systems with Wi-Fi connectivity.

For general diagnosis and documentation, Volk Eye Check measures:

  • Inter-pupillary distance for eyeglass fitting
  • Margin reflex distance for detection and documentation of ptosis in endocrine disorders, as well as pre and post-surgical comparison
  • Strabismus angle for Amblyopia and Strabismus screening with objective documentation of Strabismus amplitude

Volk Eye Check can also help to quickly identify patients that are candidates for specialty lenses and reduce practice drop-out rates. An estimated 6 million contact users drop out of lens wear each year, 12 percent of those due to the discomfort of poorly fitting lenses1.
 Eye Check measurement parameters that facilitate lens fitting are:

  • Horizontal Visible Iris Diameter (HVID) to assess correct contact lens diameter
  • Pupil diameter and eccentricity for GP lens fitting and multi focal contact lens choice
  • Lid margin to pupil margin for bifocal lens fitting

Mahadev Dhuri, who is launching Volk Eye Check in India says, "Volk has a tremendous reputation in ophthalmic lenses and diagnostic imaging devices. In India, pediatric ophthalmic devices can play a critical role in early diagnosis of eye diseases. Also, in the rural interiors and even in smaller towns, you require a portable device for diagnosis. This innovative ophthalmic diagnostic device can also find many other applications in general patient care."
