Eschenbach's new LED handle provides the brightest illumination available for stand magnifiers.

ELECTRIC LED HANDLE

Eschenbach says that with its new LED electric handle, patients will never have to replace a bulb or change batteries. In addition, this new handle provides the brightest illumination available for stand magnifiers. The handle includes a switch above the LEDs that, when engaged, boosts the illumination by 33%. Brighter illumination maximizes the contrast of the material being viewed and reduces the amount of magnification needed by the user.

ENDO-OCULAR PROBES

Iridex Corporation has begun distribution of Innovatech's Illuminating endo-ocular probes (Straight and Angled, 20-g), and Adjustable & Intuitive (20-g and 25-g) for endophotocoagulation for the treatment of diabetic retinopathy, retinal breaks and detachments, and neovascular glaucoma. The Illuminating probes combine white-light illumination with laser delivery in 1 convenient handpiece. The Illuminating probes also feature a bayonet-style tip design for simultaneous wide-field illumination and precise laser spots. The Adjustable & Intuitive probes allow the fiber optic to be continuously adjusted over a wide range of angles for full coverage of peripheral retina without removing the probe from the eye.

Innovatech endo-ocular probes will be fitted with the Iridex proprietary connector technology, validating them for use on all Iridex lasers and ensuring delivery of precisely calibrated laser energy and compliance with laser safety standards.
