Introducing the Revolutionary Zeiss GDx Exam. Helping your doctor detect glaucoma—while there’s still time.
What is glaucoma?
Over two million Americans have glaucoma, making it one of the biggest causes of legal blindness in the United States. Glaucoma can rob people of their vision even though they don’t have any visual symptoms or pain. In fact, half of those with glaucoma don’t even know it. The disease is not easily diagnosed. For example, the common “puff test,” which measures eye pressure, fails to uncover glaucoma in one third of patients with the disease. No wonder glaucoma is called the “sneak thief of sight.”
Don’t let glaucoma sneak up on you.
Now there is a revolutionary new technology that can help doctors find glaucoma earlier, while there’s still time: the Zeiss GDx glaucoma exam, from a trusted leader in innovative diagnostic instruments for eyecare.
What makes the Zeiss GDx exam so revolutionary?
Unlike the puff test, the Zeiss GDx exam actually lets your doctor see the pattern and thickness of the nerve fibers in the back of your eyes, then compares the results to normal values. If your nerve fibers are thinner than normal, this could indicate glaucoma long before any vision has been lost. As a result, your doctor will have more time to treat the disease.
How does the Zeiss GDx exam work?
The test is a quick and comfortable part of a complete eye exam. Plus, you don’t have to have your pupils dilated. You simply look into the Zeiss GDx system while it safely scans the back of your eye. Total exam time usually takes less than a minute, and the system creates easy-to-read images that your doctor can quickly analyze.
