Perkins Mk3 Hand Held Applanation Tonometer with Goldmann Reusable Prism
Based on Goldmann principles for assessing intraocular pressure, the Perkins Mk3 tonometer combines proven clinical accuracy with the flexibility of a hand-held instrument.
Established for over 50 years, Perkins is synonymous with being the ‘gold-standard’ in hand-held applanation tonometers.
Clement Clarke originally developed the popular Perkins tonometer during the 1970s. Over time, it has been updated and improved, creating an ergonomic design, as well as giving the instrument a longer-lasting battery and enhanced internal LED illumination.
Improved LED illumination
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 increased operating times are achieved.
Use disposable or reusable prisms
Because it is fast and reproducible, the Goldmann applanation tonometry principle is still the most widely used approach to measure intraocular pressure. The Perkins tonometer is compatible with both disposable prisms and reusable Goldmann tonometer prisms.
Excellent optical quality
Haag-Streit’s Goldmann measuring prisms distinguish themselves by their optical and mechanical performance, which allows for fast and reliable measurements in daily practice.
Precision counter-balanced movements
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.
This product comes complete with case, battery charger and blue LED. Includes one Goldmann reusable prism.
