Top Line: US Ophthalmic is introducing six Ezer slit lamps, including Haag-Streit-style tower illumination and Carl Zeiss-style level illumination systems.
Close Up:
  • The ESL-1200 offers unsurpassed clarity and sharpness, while delivering crisp images and a wide field of view with excellent resolution. The ESL-1200 boasts a Carl Zeiss-style level illumination system and an advanced Cross-Angle Stereovision Converging Binocular Optical System. It is also user-friendly and ergonomically designed. The ESL-1200 features well-placed controls and two-step magnification that can be easily changed between 1x and 1.6x, using a conveniently located lever. Final magnification ratios are equivalent to 10x (∅18mm) and 16x (∅14.5mm) with the 10x eyepiece. Other features include a red LED fixation light, built in filters, and continuous slit rotation.
  • ESL-2600 features outstanding wide-field optical performance, and quality design. It offers Haag-Streit-style tower illumination in a Cross-Angle Stereovision Converging Binocular Optical System. Well-placed controls and two-step magnification can be easily changed between 1x and 1.6x, using a conveniently located lever. Final magnification ratios are equivalent to 10x (∅18mm) and 16x (∅14.5mm) with the 10x eyepiece. Intuitively well-placed controls combined with superior optics make diagnostic procedures and contact lens fittings easy. A high luminance halogen lamp provides excellent clarity, and four built-in Illumination Pathway Filters can be easily switched out. The ESL-2600 also can be equipped with a Goldman applanation tonometer.
  • ESL-5200 offers Haag-Streit-style tower illumination in a Cross-Angle Stereovision Converging Binocular Optical System. The ESL-5200 features well-placed controls and two-step magnification that can be easily changed between 1x and 1.6x, using a conveniently located lever. Two available eyepieces (10x and 16x) really set this unit apart by offering even greater flexibility when examining ocular structures. Furthermore, the ESL-5200 includes a Hruby Lens Kit for performing fundus exams and can also be equipped with an applanation tonometer. Other features include two fixation options, reflecting mirrors, a tilt mechanism and four illumination filters.
