D-Eye Intros Portable Retinal Imaging System


More Images
Product: D-Eye
Top Line: D-Eye is an affordable and portable retinal examiner. Created by D-Eye, based in Padua, Italy, the FDA-registered device consists of a phone-case-sized add-on that turns an iPhone or Android smartphone into a fundus camera capable of taking high-definition images and video of the eye for health screening and evaluation.
Close Up: D-Eye offers an up to 20-degree field of view for easy observations, including the optic nerve, without any disturbing corneal glare. The fundus camera can be used in any setting by a variety of health professionals ranging from ophthalmologists, optometrists, neurologists, general practitioners, emergency physicians, and pediatricians to school nurses, EMTs, and others. Its convenient and ergonomic design makes it particularly beneficial for use with children, bedridden patients, and even animals.
The D-Eye app provides step-by-step instructions, contains a glossary of conditions of the eye, archives all examinations on a patient chart for convenient file management, and allows the examiner to email or upload images for review by appropriately trained medical specialists. Additionally, the device’s imaging capabilities allow for medical professionals to have unprecedented dialogues with their patients—offering up visuals in real-time to easily explain diagnoses.
Vital Stats: D-Eye’s HIPAA-compliant D-Eye ImageVault, which will be made available later this year, also will offer a subscription-based cloud platform service to enable storing and sharing images among medical professionals, promoting telemedicine applications.

Product: Duette Practitioner Interview Videos
Top Line: SynergEyes is releasing 48 practitioner interview videos. The impactful, authentic and unscripted videos provide tips, advice and successes from Duette practitioners to their peers, and emphasize how Duette—a high-performance contact lens for astigmatic and presbyopic patients—can transform a patient’s vision while transforming an independent eyecare practitioner’s practice as well.
Close Up: Developed as part of an ongoing strategy to provide impactful tools for practitioners, the new Duette videos capture eight ODs answering a variety of questions on topics such as:
  • Advice for New Duette Fitters
  • Presenting Duette to Patients
  • Setting Patient Expectations with Duette
  • Duette Target Patients
  • How Duette Has Made a Difference in the Practice
  • What I Tell colleagues About Duette
  • Favorite Duette Moments
  • The Role Duette Plays in the Practice
  • The Difference Between Duette and a Soft Toric
  • Duette Insertion and Removal Tips
  • The Role of Staff and Training in Duette Success
  • Duette for Athletes
Through these videos the ODs share insights with other practitioners to help them achieve success with Duette, and also explain how Duette has had a positive impact on both patient satisfaction and their businesses.
Vital Stats: The Duette videos, each no more than a few minutes in length, are available through the “Colleague Comments” link on the homepage of SynergEyes.com/professional. They can also be accessed directly at: www.synergeyes.com/professional/duette/practitioner-insights/.
Combining clear GP optics with SoftCushion comfort technology, Duette provides crisp, stable, high-performance vision for patients, especially those with astigmatism. The lens also features an 84 Dk silicone hydrogel skirt around the 130 Dk center. A patient’s initial pair of Duette lenses can be designed empirically based on a refraction and corneal curvature measurements.

Precision Tool Technologies Debuts ‘Deep Drive’ Edging Blocks and Deblocking System


More Images
Product: ‘Deep Drive’ Edge Blocks and Deblocking System
Top Line: Precision Tool Technologies is introducing the family of Deep Drive edging blocks. Deep Drive are the first edge blocks designed to be deblocked from the lenses two at a time with no crazing of the AR coatings, according to Precision Tool Technologies. Now two lenses at a time can consistently deblocked safely and efficiently. Deep Drive blocks also reduce breakage and are long lasting. Used in conjunction with Precision Tool Technologies’ LZFII-1 and LZFII-1-Auto-EZ Deblockers, Deep Drive edge blocks will meet virtually any edging needs, the company said.
Close Up: The purple block, pictured above at left, shows the company’s regular edge block sitting in a collet without the Deep Drive features. Without the features of Deep Drive, the block is susceptible to spinning in the collet and results in damaged edge blocks. The blue block, pictured above at right, illustrates Precision Tool Technologies’ patented Deep Drive feature. It shows the engagement between the edge block and the collet, giving enhanced gripping and control of the edge block while deblocking.
Vital Stats: Deep Drive edge blocks are available in whole eyes, half-eyes, ovals and large ovals, Weco or Loh configurations and in semi-flexible base curve specific or flexible materials. Precision Tool Technologies has the correct edge block for different edging equipment.
