We have the Spectralis OCT (Heidelberg Engineering), the most innovative in the world.
The SPECTRALIS® is an ophthalmic imaging platform with an upgradable, modular design. This platform allows clinicians to configure each SPECTRALIS® to the specific diagnostic workflow in the practice or clinic.
A recent cover article in Ocular Surgery News, Monitoring long-term effects on vision in microgravity a priority for NASA’s future flight to Mars, highlights NASA’s initiative to understand vision loss due to microgravity. NASA has allied with thought leaders in ophthalmology to identify the cause of structural damage caused by prolonged exposure to zero gravity. Dr. Otto is overseeing a study that requires astronauts on the ISS to conduct regular exams that include systemic tests and eye exams including: funduscopy, visual acuity, Amsler grid, contrast sensitivity, tonometry, and OCT scans with the SPECTRALIS OCT system.
