Eidon True Color Confocal Scanner
EIDON is the first system to combine the advantages of SLO with the fidelity of true color imaging, setting new performance standards in retinal imaging. EIDON provides unsurpassed image quality, 60° field in a single exposure, a unique, live, confocal view of the retina, three different imaging modalities and dilation-free operation, all integrated in a versatile system that provides new opportunities in retinal diagnostics.
The device is operated via a tablet with a multi-touch, high resolution, color display; it works with a dedicated software application and operates as a standalone unit. A joystick is provided when manual operation of the device is desired.
Other benefits include:
- True color, Red Free and infrared confocal images
- Super-high resolution and contrast
- Capability to image through cataract and media opacities
- Dilation-free operation (minimum pupil 2.5 mm)
- Wide Field imaging (60° in single exposure and up to 150° with Mosaic function)
- Optimal exposure of the optic disc
- Exam time less than 1’ per eye (single field)
- From Fully automated to Fully manual mode
- User friendly software interface

Zeiss Humphrey FDT
Zeiss Humphrey Matrix 800 uses Frequency Doubling Technology to provide a clinically verified and fast means of detecting early visual field loss. The FDT is the ideal visual field screening device because it conducts supra-threshold testing in only 35 seconds per eye. Visual field testing is a basic element in the standard of care for glaucoma management.
Reichert AT555 Non-Contact Tonometer
No chin rest, no joystick and no elevation controls! You simply lean against the AT-555’s forehead rest and view a fixation target. With its patented hands-free automated alignment system, operators only press a button to activate the IOP measurement process. The Reichert AT555 has the softest air puff available today, and with its enhanced silent operation, it is a truly patient-friendly instrument. The AT555 makes the entire IOP measurement process an extremely comfortable and non-intimidating experience.
The Topcon KR-8000 is a combined automatic refractor and keratometer. With the push of a single button, this unit measures the curvature of your cornea and the axial length of your eye. It provides a detailed, colored topographical map of your cornea as well as an approximate prescription that the doctor will then refine.This machine is crucial for the correct fitting of contact lenses and monitoring corneal conditions such as keratoconus.
Zeiss Cirrus HD-OCT
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is the latest technology available for the treatment and management of retinal disease. OCT is a non-invasive technology used for imaging the retina, the multi-layered sensory tissue lining the back of the eye. OCT is the first instrument to allow doctors to see cross-sectional images of the retina. It is revolutionizing the early detection and treatment of eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular holes, pre-retinal membranes, macular swelling and even optic nerve damage.
