The LM-1200 includes UV measurement and a high-speed
latest in lensmeters
and Nidek launched the LM-1200 Automatic Lensmeter at Vision Expo West last month.
The LM-1200 uses Hartmann Shack technology to read 108 points on a lens, allowing
users to determine instantly the add power of a progressive lens. Other features
include a new ergonomic design, automatic lens type detection (automatically detects
whether the lens is single vision or progressive and switches to correct mode),
prism lens measurement, progressive channel width, progressive length and prism
layout screen (allows optician to block an un-cut lens to include prism).

OMEGA 500 features Heine's Variable Pupil System, optimized to provide stereopsis
in any pupil from 10mm down to 1mm.
says its OMEGA 500 represents the evolution of the binocular indirect ophthalmoscope.
Built on the optical design of the OMEGA 180, the 500 features an improved optical
system that produces less reflexes and clear, high-resolution images that are up
to 100% brighter. Heine says it's increased comfort by reducing the device's weight
by 30% (compared with the 180) and redesigning the headband to provide more cushion
Optics is offering a six-month, ultimate satisfaction guarantee for its ComfortKone
keratoconus fitting system. The advanced aspheric lens is designed to fit patients
in any stage of keratoconus. It creates an alignment fit over the cornea, so it
does not make contact with the corneal surface, providing optimum comfort and visual
clarity for the keratoconus patient. The lens then flattens into an aspheric curve.
The ComfortKone fitting set includes 20 lenses and a fitting guide.
Metro Optics says the set will fit 85% of patients.
