Unique, accurate and incredibly easy to use

The FM-600 aqueous flare meter (also known as a Laser Flare Meter) enhances the follow up of patients by enabling the in-vivo measurement of aqueous flare in a non-contact, non-invasive and painless manner. The quantitative and reproducible measurement of aqueous flare it provides is known to be useful in cases of uveitis and following IOL implantation, and increased levels of flare have been reported with many other ocular conditions. FM-600 aqueous flare meter has been designed to combine efficiency, accuracy with fast and easy operation in a compact and modern body.
