Offer New Technology for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Glaucoma
The Paradigm Ocular Blood Flow Analyzer (BFA) is a medical device which now for the first time allows the doctor to measure blood flow in the optic nerve of the eye.
This Information allows doctors to identify glaucoma before it causes damage to the patient’s optic nerve unlike many traditional tests. Early detection of glaucoma can help reduce the amount of vision loss caused by glaucoma, one of the leading causes of blindness. This test will also improve management of glaucoma as well as assisting in the detection of other circulatory abnormalities involving diabetes, retinal and carotid disorders.
