Zeiss Has Its Eye on OCT
Carl Zeiss Meditec has launched a new online optical coherence tomography resource. Zeiss calls Eye On OCT (oct.zeiss.com) the most extensive resource for news and education about OCT technology and clinical application for ophthalmologists, optometrists and other eye-care professionals.
Eye On OCT contains a broad compendium of resources for eye-care professionals, including physician demonstrations, interviews and commentary about current OCT applications; OCT journal and news articles, case reports and educational presentations, images and more
Eye On OCT utilizes machine learning, natural language processing, information retrieval and human computer interaction to deliver the most up-to-date information to its users. The site is powered by an engine that surveys and filters thousands of news articles per day from across the Web, selecting only the most pertinent content for eye-care professionals who are interested in OCT developments and clinical applications. Eye On OCT is available to eye-care professionals by visiting oct.zeiss.com.
Haag-Streit Introduces Lenstar LS 900 Optical Biometer
Examiners can complete a single scan and measure nine parameters within 30 seconds, without the patient having to be repositioned or moved to other equipment, maximizing outcome consistency. This speed is much more convenient and comfortable for patients and Lenstar's quick scan capabilities significantly improve patient cooperation and diagnostic integrity even among techs with varying levels of expertise.
Lenstar provides the user with a complete laser interferometric assessment of the patient's eye in a single measurement procedure. The nine measurements include: pachymetry; keratometry; anterior chamber depth; lens thickness; axial length;, white-to-white distance; pupillometry; eccentricity of the visual axis; and retinal thickness. Detailed product information is available at mylenstar.com.
The Lenstar platform was designed to meet the needs of the surgeon now and in the future. To minimize costly upgrades, annoying hardware repairs, overflowing databases and to allow third-party software products to run in parallel, Lenstar uses an external PC. Its expandable software platform has all standard IOL formulae built–in and is freely expandable with optimized IOL constants and future formulae. The system delivers b/w and red-free images of the eye and allows the user to interactively set gates in the A-scan display.
While acquisition of Lenstar includes onsite training by a clinical application specialist, the software and interface were designed to be extremely intuitive. That means technicians can begin operating Lenstar almost immediately. For more information, visit haag-streit-usa.com or call 1 (800) 787-5426.
