TRK-1P Automatic Non-Contact Diagnostic

Topcon’s TRK-1P has been increasingly regarded as an important instrument to have in the consulting room or pretesting room of an optometry practice. Combining Topcon’s market-leading reputation of accuracy in the field of auto-refraction, this instrument incorporates tonometry and pachymetry as well.

All that the practitioner or assistant needs to do is to sit the patient down at the instrument and roughly centre one of the patient’s eyes on the touch screen. One press of a joystick button and the instruments does the rest; a minute later it has performed the four functions on both eyes of the patient without any further input from the practitioner.

Apart from the ‘wow’ factor that this instrument gives to the patient, there are clear efficiencies in adding this instrument to your examination regime. Firstly, measurements from the TRK-1P can be sent straight to the consultation findings screen of your practice management software. Secondly, fluorescein and anaesthetic drops are not required – tonometry is achieved via Topcon’s smart gentlepuff technology and pachymetry is achieved optically with no need for compression or contact with the patient’s cornea.

The operation of this instrument is so simple that most practitioners will perform all four measurements on every patient but if a practitioner wants to be more “hands-on”, the instrument can be operated manually and each test can be performed in isolation.

The TRK-1P has revolutionised the collection of four essential aspects of optometric examination. But, alas, it won’t make your coffee
