Myopia Measurements Made Easy

sponsored by OCULUS

With its much-anticipated Myopia Master®, OCULUS delivers a first-in-class, easy-to-use desktop device that combines all the measurement methods for myopia detection and management, coupled with sophisticated software to provide individual patient reports.

Myopia is a serious concern, with its prevalence increasing in children, adolescents and young adults. A recent study by the European Eye Epidemiology Consortium shows that 47 percent of Europeans between the ages of 25 and 29 are now myopic. With increased incidence of myopia comes increasing risk, and so it is becoming more important to check for the signs of myopia early in life; evidence of best practice points towards monitoring from the age of four. In short, the earlier myopia can be detected, the better the prognosis. Currently, at least two devices are required to perform refraction, axial length measurement and keratometry, with no associated software available to simplify interpretation – and makes the whole process cumbersome and off-putting. What if you had the ability to screen myopia quickly, easily, and accurately.

Launching in 2020, the Myopia Master has been designed with that question in mind, simplifying the process of screening – and then monitoring – myopia. The standalone device not only captures all of the data required for assessing myopia, but also offers a software package that combines analytical data with a patient questionnaire. The resulting individual patient report presents the findings with easy-to-read color-coded illustrations, which makes them readily understandable for the patient, optometrist, and ophthalmologist alike. Moreover, the report is designed to be taken away by the patient, and offers recommended actions as well as detailed, critical background information on myopia.

Furthermore, OCULUS will enter into an exclusive cooperation with the Brien Holden Vision Institute, Australia, to incorporate BHVI’s algorithms for tracking and estimating refractive error into the Myopia Master. The Myopia Master can be mounted on a workstation or on an ophthalmic table for ease of access in the practice. And the software can be operated either directly via the display or from a connected computer.

The Myopia Master enables easy and accurate assessment of myopia, with a patient-friendly design, and clear, simple reporting. OCULUS is dedicated to providing innovative solutions to more traditional problems; the Myopia Master represents a perfect example of the company’s approach, reducing examination time and promoting a wider awareness of myopia.
