360-Degree Lens

Volk Optical has developed a new gonio lens, the G-6 Gonio Lens.

The lens’ six mirrors are equally angled at 63 degrees, providing a true 360-degree view during glaucoma screening without any lens adjustment required and eliminating gaps for visualization of the entire anterior segment at 1x magnification.

During examination, two of the mirrors are aligned in the superior and inferior regions, while the remaining four mirrors provide a continuous view through the nasal and temporal regions. Practitioners can quickly scan across mirrors without the confusion of tracking where one view ends and the next begins that can come from rotating the lens.

The G-6’s taller, tapered profile is easy to hold within the orbit and is designed to lessen the chance that a patient can squeeze it off the eye. The no flange/no fluid design of this lens facilitates use without viscous interface solutions. For handling flexibility, the G-6 comes with a ring or a two-in-one handle that can be adjusted to create a straight or 45-degree angled grip.

Handheld Magnifier

Eschenbach has introduced the 4x Mobilux Handheld Magnifier. The Mobilux’s 16-D hybrid lens (which combines an upper refractive lens with a lower multi-order diffractive lens) and large size (75 mm x 50 mm) are designed to provide patients with a 30 percent greater field of view than a comparably powered round lens.  

The Mobilux also features an LED that lasts 10,000 hours and a removable plastic lens cover.
