Topcon celebrates 85 years

The equipment company will be the technology sponsor of the BCLA’s Clinical Conference and Exhibition


Marking 85 years since its establishment, Topcon has confirmed its position as technology sponsor of the British Contact Lens Association’s (BCLA) Clinical Conference and Exhibition

During the conference, which will take place at Liverpool’s ACC on 9–11 June, the equipment company will showcase its Swept Source DRI Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Triton, that it highlights is the world’s only posterior segment OCT of its kind. 

Topcon describes the Triton device as a multimodal platform linking traditional and cutting edge imaging technology with one software platform.

For practitioners who want to learn more about the Triton OCT, Topcon’s UK and European clinical imaging applications and training manager, Tim Cole, will be on-hand in the Pavillion area on 10 June (10.30–10.45am) to talk through the device’s uses. He will explore anterior OCT, identifying anatomy, pathology and experimentation with OCT angiography.

He will also discuss how swept source OCT differs from conventional spectral domain and the enhanced possibilities it can provide for visualising deep anterior structures, corneal sections and contact lens placement.  

On display in the UK for the first time on Toncon’s stand will be the Eye-Light IPL and LLLT dry eye treatment platform, which combines light modulation with OPE. “This unique platform treats both the lower and upper meibomian glands and has the added benefit of not needing the application of gel during the treatment process,” the company said. 

For practice owners considering investing in or upgrading an electronic practice management system, Topcon’s i-Clarity will also be showcased.
