In India, an estimated 12 million people suffer from Glaucoma, and 9 out of 10 cases remain undetected. There’s a simple explanation as to why. Diagnostic equipment imported into the country are incredibly expensive. As a result, they make up half the cost of setting up an eye hospital. This in turn translates to expensive checkups out of reach for poor people. Moreover the hospitals need lost of patient to recover their investment. This means they can be only set up in big cities denying access to the rural people.
Caught in this situation, eye doctors and technicians are often left with a tough choice to make. They can either depend on inaccurate equipment or make a risky investment. Elisar Visual Field Analyzer helps solve that problem by making treatment accessible and affordable to all.

These include obese, disabled, bedridden patients, pediatric patients, patients with tremors. Also the Elisar VFA can be used in small clinics or government run camps. As a result, this brings down the cost of checkup as patients do not have to go to a big hospital.
Technicians administer the test in just a few clicks. The field analyzer’s advanced infrared tracking technology automatically corrects for fixation loss. As a result even a non-medical person can learn how to use the vfa quickly.
