Product: iScan
Top Line: Optovue, a pioneer in spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), is launching the iScan, a device that is designed to elevate the eye exam by leveraging next-generation, software-guided scanning technology.
Close Up: The iScan system simplifies OCT technology, making it accessible to a range of eyecare professionals in any practice setting. With Optovue’s proprietary iWellness scan, iScan guides the patient through the entire exam and requires minimal operator involvement. The iWellness scan provides a cross-sectional view of the retinal layers, a retinal thickness map and a ganglion cell complex map. These outputs enable the doctor to identify signs of disease or otherwise confirm a patient’s ocular health. “iScan with iWellness gives every eyecare professional the ability to enhance patient care and make the exam process more efficient, providing detailed information on the patient’s ocular health from the very beginning of each exam,” said Larry Alexander, OD, FAAO, senior director of clinical education for Optovue. “The iWellnessExam also gives the clinician the ability to detect pathology earlier and improve patient education with a personalized eye health report.”
Vital Stats: Optovue is introducing iScan at an economical price point. The revenue generated from the iWellnessExam delivers a high return on investment, according to Optovue.
