CX-1 HYBRID DIGITAL RETINAL CAMERA

Canon

■ With one-touch of the CX-1 Mydriatic/Non-Mydriatic Hybrid Digital Retinal Camera, an operator can automatically switch between mydriatic and non-mydriatic modes.

The CX-1 allows users to take one-shot fundus auto-fluorescence (FAF) photography, in a standard configuration, for both mydriatic and non-mydriatic modes.

The single-onboard digital camera handles five different photography modes with ease, including FAF, color, red-free, cobalt and fluorescein angiography photography.

IMARC MICROASPIRATION RETINAL CANNULA

iScience Interventional

■ The iMARC Micro-Aspiration Retinal Cannula is designed to deliver self-sealing retinotomies. Its coaxial design facilitates controlled, efficient, precise fluid aspiration, according to iScience.

The iMARC's 25-gauge main shaft is 30 mm long and is designed to produce an annular vacuum to control retinal tissue. The 125-μm inner polyimide micro-needle penetrates the retina to aspirate subretinal fluid.

A side arm offers access to the annular space for fluid infusion and vacuum control. The main Luer connector can be attached to a vitrectomy, syringe, or other vacuum source.

VANTAGEPLUS LED SLIMLINE

Keeler

■ The VantagePlus LED Slimline improves image clarity and ease of examination with a comfortable, wireless instrument, says Keeler. The LED technology increases imaging quality and reduces environmental impact.

The Slimline uses an LED lamp for a brighter, whiter light that illuminates the retina with greater detail. Its intelligent optical system automatically changes the optics and mirrors when the aperture is adjusted, improving examinations by providing 3D stereoscopic views of the retina through all pupil sizes. A recently patented Himag lens provides 1.6x additional magnification compared to a standard condensing lens.

HR CENTRALIS LENS

Volk Optical

■ The HR Centralis lens provides detailed views of the central retina and posterior pole. The indirect non-contact lens's high-resolution imaging and high magnification are ideal for diagnostic work and focal/grid laser treatment, says Volk

The 1.08x magnification of the HR Centralis improves visualization capabilities with pupils as small as 4 mm, the company says. Volks patented double-aspheric glass design eliminates distortion and improves stereopsis to the periphery of the 88° field of view. A reduced-size housing simplifies manipulation of the HR Centralis within the orbit.
