OCTA, Better Scleral Lens Fitting
Optovue’s iSeries OCT devices can help with scleral lens fitting now that the company offers a new software package called Vault Mapping. Traditional corneal clearance imaging uses a fluorescein solution and a slit lamp, which yields one cross-sectional view. With this new software, Optovue says, a clearance assessment map is created to help determine if the lens is tilting or fitting improperly.
The company also recently brought its Angiovue imaging system to optometry, giving ODs a more precise way to view the retinal vasculature, Optovue says. The system provides conventional OCT as well as OCT angiography (OCTA) to quickly visualize the retinal microvasculature without dye. Optometrists can integrate vascular structure assessment with other imaging to form a more complete picture of retinal health.
Confocal Scanner Autofluorescence
Centervue now offers fundus autofluorescence capabilities on its Eidon line of confocal scanners. The new model, the Eidon AF, obtains the same range of information from multiple imaging modalities as the original while adding fundus autofluorescence, allowing you to assess the retinal pigment epithelial layer, according to the company.
The new model captures a 60° autofluorescence image with a single flash of light. The Eidon AF also offers wide-field views of the retina up to 110°, according to Centervue.
Eyefficient, Mediworks Go Digital
Optometrists interested in going high tech with their slit lamp imaging and vision testing charts can look forward to checking out a new line of equipment from Mediworks that’s now being distributed by Eyefficient.
Eyefficient is also working to provide installation and service to equipment within the continental US.
