Laser System and Coaxial Multicolor Laser Indirect Ophthalmoscope

Lumenis has received FDA clearance to market its Novus 3000 Laser System and its Coaxial Multicolor Laser Indirect Ophthalmoscope (LIO).

The Novus 3000 is a 532-nanometer, diode-pumped, solid-state (DPSS) photocoagulator with up to 3 watts of power available through its semiconductor-based technology. Through its color, touchscreen remote control with liquid crystal display, adjustments to treatment parameters can be made. The system features multiple memory locations allowing ophthalmologists to save and recall preferred treatment parameters, as well as a dual-fiber port allowing two delivery devices to be attached, providing selection between the two. It also features two dedicated illumination sources, which work independently with compatible LIOs and endo-ocular probes. The Novus 3000 comes standard with built-in storage for a LIO, remote control, foot switch and other accessories. 

The Coaxial Multicolor LIO delivers photocoagulator laser energy during ophthalmic surgery. The company reports that the device provides precise laser delivery with repeatable outcomes, as well as maximum treatment options and physician safety. It is compatible with the Novus 3000 and features integrated multiwavelength eye safety filters.

Nonmydriatic Fundus Camera

Carl Zeiss Meditec has received 501(k) clearance from the FDA to market its VisucamPro nonmydriatic fundus camera for retinal imaging.

The VisucamPro NM captures high-resolution digital images of the retina and posterior segment of the eye through a pupil size of 3.3 millimeters, eliminating the need to dilate the pupil prior to testing. The camera captures images at 30- and 45-degree field angles, allowing for early documentation of conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma.

The VisucamPro NM is an all-in-one unit that does not require external wires or peripheral cameras.

Wide-Field Lenses for Vitreoretinal Surgery

Volk Optical has introduced the AutoClaveSterilizable (ACS) wide-field MiniQuad and Central Retinal vitrectomy lenses, which offer improved optics with decreased sterilization processing time.

The Central Retinal ACS has a field of view of 73 degrees static and 88 degrees dynamic. It has a magnification of 0.71 times and provides detailed visualization to the equatorial regions for vitrectomy in diabetics and membrane peeling extending to the equator.

The MiniQuad ACS has a field of view of 106 degrees static and 127 degrees dynamic with a magnification of 0.39 times.

Both lenses have open housing, reducing the weight of the lenses and preventing them from fogging during surgery. The lenses can go from surgery to autoclave to surgery, with no intervening steps and can withstand repeated steam sterilization. Together, the MiniQuad and Central Retinal lenses allow visualization of virtually the entire retina.

Flap Stretching Forceps

The Kurstin Flap Stretching Forceps are now available from Katena. Developed by Joseph Kurstin, MD, of Miami, the forceps help to eliminate postoperative striae in the LASIK flap.

The Flap Stretching Forceps feature disc-shaped tips with delicate serrations to atraumatically grasp and stretch the flap. Dr. Kurstin uses two pairs of forceps simultaneously to stretch the flap in opposing directions to straighten any microstriae.

Laser Fixation Target

The Laser Fixation Target, developed by Gulden Ophthalmics, is a fixation ceiling target for changing gaze during indirect ophthalmoscope exams and other testing. The device is a versatile tool for patients to fixate on various areas, including the ceiling, floor and walls—anywhere a laser beam can shine.

The Laser Fixation Target is made of flexible tubing that adjusts easily and stays in position. It has a base for counter placement and a clip for attaching to any slit lamp. The laser has five interchangeable tips to give the practitioner an assortment of targets, including cartoon characters for pediatric patients.
