The lens is ideal during glaucoma screening.
The lens has four mirrors equally angled at 64°, enabling visualization of the entire anterior chamber with a slight rotation. It also has a no flange/no fluid (NF) design so you can use it without employing viscous interface solutions, such as methylcellulose. All patients need for comfort is a thick natural tear layer or artificial tears, Volk says.
The company offers large or small lens rings for your personal handling preference. In addition, you can adjust the lens' two-in-one handle to create a straight or 45°-angled grip.
