Moorfields Purchases its 100th Keeler Indirect Ophthalmoscope
In response to Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust purchasing its 100th Keeler Vantage Indirect ophthalmoscope, Keeler has donated a digital version, the Vantage Plus LED Digital indirect ophthalmoscope, to the hospital.
Moorfields is one of the world’s leading eye hospitals, providing expertise in clinical care, research, teaching and education. Keeler’s relationship with Moorfields has spanned several decades and is reciprocal in nature; Keeler has worked very closely with Moorfields to develop its range of innovative products and ensure the ophthalmic equipment is at the forefront of hospital diagnostic care and tailored to the needs of the surgeon.

Mr Eric Ezra, MA, MD, FRCS, FRCSOphth, Director of Vitreo Retinal Surgery at Moorfields, has had significant influence in the design of the latest Vantage Plus indirect ophthalmoscope and Keeler’s latest development, the Keeler Vantage Plus Digital. Mr Ezra commented: “Teaching is one of the key areas we are developing and the Keeler Vantage Plus Digital is a valuable tool that really helps us to show our Fellows what they need to be treating and the on-going progress of treatment. I have worked very closely with Laura Haverley at Keeler to ensure we get the right product that will enhance and develop this very important work.”
Thamby Rajah, Clinical Sister and Out Patient Coordinator at Moorfields added: “One of my key responsibilities is to make sure that diagnostic equipment is available and ready to go and Keeler streamlines this process by ensuring products are up to date and working correctly. This helps to keep all of my clinics running smoothly so we can focus on patient care and making sure patients are diagnosed and treated without delay.”
