Mani Ophthalmic Suture Line
• Accutome has introduced a new Mani Ophthalmic Suture Line, with sutures made from austenite steel cross-lapped to penetrate tissue. It is also the only suture with a laserdrilled smooth end to eliminate damage to tissue or tissue drag. The laser-drilled hole also strengthens the bond between the needle and suture, says Accutome.
Accutome currently offers the sutures in nylon, silk, polyester, and polyglactin with a variety of different needle types.

3D Vision System
• TrueVision Systems’TrueVision Microsurgery Teaching System is a 3-D vision system for microscopes that frees users from looking through eyepieces. It is an ideal teaching and collaboration tool for ophthalmology and other disciplines where a microscope is used, allowing everyone to see the same image as if they were looking into the microscope, says TrueVision Systems. The optical 3-D image viewed through the microscope, is converted by TrueVision to a 3-D high-definition digital image, which can be displayed on a projection screen in real time, transforming stereomicroscopes into more ergonomic and collaborative devices.
TrueVision features modern digital imaging capabilities, allowing users to integrate 3-D images from the microscope with other medical digital-image sources such as surgical planning, CT, and MRI data. It features the ability to save and retrieve images and video easily for record keeping and documentation, and sharing without giving up the resolution, color, and stereo depth found in the original optical image.
