BROWN TRIPLE-POST SPECULUM

Rhein Medical


The Brown Triple-Post Speculum is ideal for all anterior and posterior segment surgery, according to Rhein.

■ The Brown Triple-Post Speculum, developed in coordination with Reay H. Brown, MD, has a unique blade design that prevents lashes from overlapping the drape, and the special central posts prevent lids and lashes from rotating into the surgical field. The special fenestrated blades improve exposure and access to superior surgical approaches by supporting and elevating the middle of the lids.

The speculum improves assessment and visualization of the superior cornea by creating an oval separation of the lids, preventing drape obstruction.

THE 4-MIRROR HIGH MAG GONIO LENS

Volk Optical

■ The 4-Mirror High Mag Gonio Lens utilizes a level of magnification previously unavailable in a 4-mirror gonio lens to provide a complete 360° view of the anterior chamber.


The Volk 4-Mirror High Mag Gonio Lens provides a complete view of the anterior chamber.

With an image magnification of 1.5x, the 4-Mirror High Mag Gonio delivers crisp, clear views for observation of key detail in the anterior segment during glaucoma screening. Four mirrors equally angled at 64° provide visualization of the entire anterior chamber, with only a slight rotation.

The no flange/no fluid design of this lens facilitates use without viscous interface solutions, such as methylcellulose. Artificial tears or a thick natural tear layer is all that is required for patient comfort, facilitating exams.

Large or small ring options are available to suit personal handling preferences. For additional flexibility, the versatile 2-in-1 handle can easily be adjusted to create a straight or 45° angled grip.
