The Zeiss Humphrey Matrix 800 is latest innovation in Visual Field Analysis. This remarkable device tests a patient’s peripheral vision for early detection of serious eye conditions such as glaucoma. The Humphrey Matrix 800 is utilized to map and check the patient’s peripheral or side vision. Since glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve that affects peripheral vision the VFA picks up any loss of sensitivity in a patient’s side vision if glaucoma is present and can also check for progression of a patient’s glaucoma as well.
Since glaucoma steals a person’s sight very slowly, it is often very difficult to detect without proper eye exams and equipment. The Humphrey Matrix 800 is able to detect this silent vision thief long before the patient would normally be able to catch it on their own, saving the patient’s priceless sense of sight by preventing glaucoma from doing damage by early detection and treatment.
If you have a family history of glaucoma, have been diagnosed with high eye pressure, experience chronic headaches or eye pain, or are taking certain medications for conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, that could cause retinal damage with long term use, you are at increased risk of developing glaucoma and should have your eyes tested with the new Zeiss Humphrey Matrix 800.
Another useful piece of equipment, which examines the front of the eye is the Anterior Segment Camera.
