360° View Possible with Volk 4 Mirror High Mag Gonio Lens
Detailed views of the anterior segment for glaucoma screening
Mentor, Ohio (March 6, 2007) – Volk optical has improved the capability to view the anterior segment of the eye with a new offering in its G-Series line of glass gonio lenses, the 4 Mirror High Mag Gonio Lens. The new lens utilizes a level of magnification previously unavailable in a four mirror gonio lens to provide a complete 360° view of the anterior chamber.
With an image magnification of 1.5x, the 4 Mirror High Mag Gonio delivers crisp, clear views for observation of key detail in the anterior segment during glaucoma screening. Four mirrors equally angled at 64° provide visualization of the entire anterior chamber, with only a slight rotation.
The “nf” (no flange/no fluid) design of this lens facilitates use without viscous interface solutions, such as methylcellulose. Artificial tears or a thick natural tear layer is all that is required for patient comfort, facilitating exams.
Large or small ring options are available to suit personal handling preferences. For additional flexibility, the versatile 2-in-1 handle can easily be adjusted to create a straight or 45° angled grip.
