The Pictor digital imaging device is a portable and cost-effective advancement over traditional fixed systems. The lightweight device is ideal for use in-office, on non-ambulatory patient visits, at off-site clinics and for pediatric exams. Its modular design enables both imaging of the retina and external parts of the eye. The Pictor produces standard high resolution jpeg images and video for manipulation on any computer. 

Also on display will be Volk’s entire line of diagnostic, therapeutic, and surgical ophthalmic lenses, equipment, and accessories, including its HR Centralis and HR Widefield High Resolution contact lenses for diagnosis and laser treatment. The HR Centralis provides detailed views of the central retina, with a 1.08x magnification to improve visualization capabilities with pupils as small as 4mm. The HR Widefield delivers a .50x magnification, with a 2.0x laser spot magnification, and reveals details as far out as the ora serrata

In addition to hands-on demonstrations, Volk will offer a 10 percent discount on purchases made during the show.
