Contact tonometer measures IOP
Broomall, Pennsylvania (May 25, 2010) Keeler has completed its family of quality tonometers with the launch of the Keeler Applanation Tonometer, KAT. The FDA-approved contact tonometer aids in glaucoma diagnosis with intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements taken at the slit lamp as part of a routine examination.
Keeler Applanation Tonometer, KAT
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 and comes in a guide plate mounted ‘T’ type or optical body post mounted ‘R’ type.
A precision instrument, KAT has been engineered with high quality, durable mechanical parts that can withstand heavy use. It is manufactured at Keeler’s Windsor, UK facility to ensure smooth operation with the reliability that physicians expect from the Keeler name.

Lightweight, wireless indirect ophthalmoscope is eco-friendly
Broomall, Pennsylvania (November 17, 2009) – Keeler has expanded its popular VantagePlus range of indirect ophthalmoscopes with VantagePlus LED Slimline. The new model improves image clarity and ease of examination with a comfortable, wireless instrument. The LED technology used both increases imaging quality and reduces environmental impact.
Vantage Plus LED Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscope (BIO)
The VantagePlus LED Slimline uses an LED lamp for a brighter, whiter light that illuminates the retina with greater detail. Its intelligent optical system automatically changes the optics and mirrors when the aperture is adjusted, improving examinations by providing 3D stereoscopic views of the retina through all pupil sizes. A new patented Himag™ lens provides 1.6x additional magnification compared to a standard condensing lens and can simply be flipped out of view when not being used.
While a conventional incandescent bulb lasts 60 hours, LED lamps are rated for a lifetime of 10,000 hours. With typical binocular indirect use, this works out to over 167 regular bulbs destined for landfills, compared to a single LED lamp in the Keeler VantagePlus LED Slimline.
The indirect allows the mobility of a wireless instrument, without sacrificing comfort or convenience. A new slimline lithium battery weighs less than two ounces and provides up to six hours of use on a single charge. The VantagePlus LED Slimline has been designed with a new cushioned headband that can be adjusted to fit perfectly on heads of all shapes and sizes.
