Birmingham Optical will launch the Nidek GS-1 Gonioscope
in October, which the equipment company predicts will be a "huge hit" for specialising in glaucoma diagnosis.
After obtaining informed consent from all the patients, a detailed evaluation including history, visual acuity, slit lamp examination, gonioscopy (using Zeiss 4 mirror gonioscope
), intraocular pressure (by Goldmann applanation tonometer), central corneal thickness by Ultrasound pachymetry (AccuPach), fields and dilated fundus examination were performed.
GSL is usually performed with the assistance of a gonioscope
. However, gonioscope-assisted GSL requires either a microscope or an eyeball to be tilted, and the quality of the image is affected by corneal edema.
