The PSL Classic allows eye care professionals to deliver a quality eye exam anywhere. It is perfect for non-ambulatory patient visits, off-site clinics and exams of young children and patients who don’t fit into the traditional examination lane, as well as for veterinary use on animals of all sizes. The PSL Classic’s advanced optics offer x10 and x16 ‘flip lever’ magnification, with illumination control down to zero. Its back-up facility ensures power 100 percent of the time. The PSL slit and wheels include slits from 0.15 to 1.6 mm wide, a 12 mm circle, and a 1 mm square to produce anterior flare, aiding in the diagnosis of uveitis.

The PSL One offers eye care professionals another portable slit lamp choice. With one standard magnification of 10x, the PSL One is a more cost-effective option than Keeler’s PSL Classic for practitioners who prefer value over the extra features. The PSL One also features slit and wheels from 0.15 to 1.6 mm, a 12mm circle and a 1mm square. Its precision-machined aluminum chassis creates a sturdy structure able to withstand daily travel and use in a busy practice. Both the PSL Classic and the PSL One can be utilized with an iPhone adaptor that enables ophthalmic video capture, turning the devices into instant digital slit lamps with high-resolution video.

Accutome will also sell the Keeler Applanation Tonometer (KAT). The FDA-approved contact tonometer aids glaucoma diagnosis with IOP measurements taken at the slit lamp as part of routine examinations. The KAT uses the ‘Goldmann method’ of measuring IOP, calculating the force required to flatten a constant area of the cornea using a special prism mounted on the tonometer head and placed against the cornea. KAT is compatible with most slit lamps.
