Volk Eye Check officially launched at US and European conferences

November 12, 2014. London, UKVolk Eye Check, the innovative diagnostic tool for ophthalmologists and optometrists, was officially launched at 3 major ophthalmology and optometry annual conferences in the US and in Europe: the American Academy of Ophthalmology in Chicago; the American Academy of Optometry in Denver; the European Society for Cataract and Refractive Surgeons in London. Volk Eye Check received a warm reception, with distributors from more than a dozen countries committing to the new device.

Dr Simon Barnard, Chief Medical Officer of IRISS Medical Technologies, published a poster at the annual conference of the American Academy of Optometry in Denver, Colorado about automated documentation of acquired Horner’s syndrome using Volk Eye Check. This is one of the first case reports in which Volk Eye Check was used in clinical practice.

Capable of a number of key measurements in real-time including pupil diameter, horizontal visible iris diameter, interpupillary distance, margin reflex distance, pupil eccentricity and strabismus angle, Volk Eye Check helps practitioners screen, measure and document ocular characteristics for general diagnostic purposes and for contact lens fitting. Volk Eye Check is a tool for diagnosing conditions such as strabismus, anisocoria, ptosis and buphthalmos, as well as a measuring tool of key parameters used for optimal fitting of contact lenses and for determining lid position in oculoplastic examinations. Volk Eye Check is based on patented proprietary technology which automates examinations typically conducted manually.
