New topographer applications

■ Review Software and MasterFit II Software by Carl Zeiss Meditec are applications for the Atlas corneal topography system and are designed to make clinical data and images more accessible to you. With Atlas Review Software, each patient's diagnostic information is accessible from any computer within the office or from a remote location. MasterFit II Contact Lens Software is designed to make fitting gas permeable lenses faster and easier by guiding you through difficult and specialty fits.

New multi-focal reader

■ Eschenbach's progressive reader, the MiniFrame2, allows your presbyopic patients to use one pair of readers for near point needs. The multi-focal design comes in five different powers (1D, 1.5D, 2D, 2.5D and 3D) and increases in power by a full diopter from the top of the lens to the bottom.

The Eschenback progressive reader comes in five different powers.

Tonometer with corneal compensation

■ The 7CR Auto Tonometer + Corneal Response Technology by Reichert features Corneal Compensated IOP (IOPcc), which is a pressure measurement significantly less affected by the cornea. The 7CR's technology quantifies the biomechanical properties of the cornea and permits the determination of IOPcc. As a result, IOPcc provides you with a better understanding of patient tonometry values without compromising accuracy of your patients' IOP measurements.

The 7CR provides a reading for corneal compensated IOP.

Lenses for outdoor activity

■ The iZon SL Polarized Lenses by Ophthonix provides wearers with high definition vision in sunlight glare and in reduced contrast conditions. The lens is customized to the patient's optical fingerprint, or iPrint and can address many of the vision challenges associated with higher order aberrations of the eye in sunlight glare. The polarized lens provides 100% UVA and UVB blocking and has scratch resistant, anti-reflective, and super-hydrophobic coatings.

Lens for retinal detail

■ The HR Centralis, from Volk Optical, is a laser therapy lens that allows you to view the central retina and posterior pole. The indirect non-contact lens features high resolution imaging and 1.08x magnification to improve visualization capabilities with pupils as small as 4mm. Its high grade, low dispersion glass construction maintains a clear resolution for high image quality.

The HR Centralis offers high resolution imaging.

Indirect ophthalmoscope with LED lamp

■ The VantagePlus LED Slimline, from Keeler USA, is an indirect ophthalmoscope that utilizes LED technology to increase imaging quality and to reduce environmental impact. Specifically, the Slimline's LED lamp illuminates the retina with greater detail, and its intelligent optical system provides 3D stereoscopic views of the retina through all pupil sizes. The wireless instrument also comes with a Himag lens, which provides 1.6x additional magnification and can be slipped out of view when not in use.
