Instruments are used around the world by ophthalmologists and optometrists to scan patients’ eyes for signs of disease and to assist in the management of patients found to have disease. Early recognition of disease helps to delay and prevent the most common causes of blindness.
We would like to point out that as an instrument manufacturer, Heidelberg Engineering does not conduct any examinations. A professional ophthalmic examination can and must be performed only by your eye care professional and is absolutely necessary for a precise diagnosis, treatment recommendation, and follow-up.
Heidelberg Engineering cannot answer any questions on individual symptoms or make diagnoses. In these cases, please contact your eye care professional.
The diagnostic instruments from Heidelberg Engineering support your eye care professional in making a diagnosis. However, please note that a diagnostic decision should not be made on the basis of only a single examination.
Eye care professionals should always get a comprehensive idea of the situation before making a clinical assessment of a patient. For this reason, they will always incorporate additional clinical information into their diagnoses, such as family history, the progression of the disease, visual acuity, intraocular pressure, or an examination using a slit lamp.
