NIDEK MP-3: The Automatic Microperimeter With A Non-mydriatic Fundus Camera
The MP-3 has a wider range of stimulus intensity, from 0 to 34 dB, compared to the MP-1. The MP-3 measures perimetric threshold values, even for normal eyes. A maximum stimulus luminance of 10,000 asb* allows evaluation of low-sensitivity. Auto tracking and auto alignment functions provide more accurate measurements increasing patient and operator comfort and efficiency. These functions allow easy follow-up and reduce variations between examiners, resulting in well-aligned follow up exams. The MP-3 can measure fixation and determine the preferred retinal locus, simply by having the patient fixate on a target. Any change in fixation can be compared pre- and post-treatment because the patient’s eye is constantly tracked during microperimetry. This test allows evaluation of fixation in patients with central visual field defects and determines whether fixation improved after treatment. The 12-megapixel fundus camera in the MP-3 acquires high resolution images of retinal pathology and allows easy image acquisition. Various OCT modalities captured by NIDEK RS-3000 Advance can be registered with microperimetry.
