Retinal imaging camera gets smart

EasyScan report can be customised with practice details and emailed directly to the patient

Grafton Optical EasyScan

Grafton Optical has introduced the new EasyScan smart retinal imaging camera that can be used in single practices, mobile workstations and with multiple review stations.

The compact, lightweight device has a weight of less than 11kg/24lb and an easy plug-and-play installation, which means it can easily be transported.

The EasyScan from i-Optics differs from the traditional ‘white light’ retinal camera. Equipped with scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) technology, it enables practitioners to identify retinal issues clearly and precisely even when working with small pupils of 1.5mm and is not challenged by mild cataracts.

The retinal imaging system does not require dilation due to the use of green and infrared laser technology, offering improved patient comfort. Using 532nm green laser and 785nm infrared laser, the EasyScan produces images of the inner retina and a deeper view down to the choroid.

A quick and simple process from the user and patient’s point of view enables the scans to be captured in seconds. The images are then collated and the software produces a report detailing the results of the scan, which are stored within the database of the computer.

The report, which can be customised by the user to display practice details, and branding, can be emailed directly to the patient.
