Product: Optovue DualTrac for AngioVue System
Top Line: Optovue is announcing the availability of DualTrac Motion Correction technology on its AngioVue Imaging System.
Close Up: DualTrac Motion Correction is a two-level approach to correcting motion artifact on patients who have difficulty focusing on a central visual point during an eye exam, which is essential for high-quality OCTA imaging.
According to David Sarraf, M.D., Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at the Jules Stein Eye Institute, UCLA, and his colleagues, DualTrac Motion Correction on the AngioVue system has improved the quality of images in most patients by correcting for naturally occurring motion artifact that result from blinking and involuntary eye movements called saccades.
“In my opinion, and based on my experience before and after installing the new tracking technology, the scans produce higher quality images, especially in patients with blinking that is not severe,” said Dr. Sarraf. “Additionally, we have observed less motion artifact with small eye saccades. The DualTrac system allows patients to blink during image scanning and prevents multiple repeat scans, thereby facilitating the overall acquisition process in most patients.”
Jay Wei, chief executive officer for Optovue, remarked, “We are excited to bring to market groundbreaking technologies that provide valuable new, detailed information about the microvasculature of the eye, in a manner that reduces the burden for both the patient and the clinic staff. DualTrac Motion Correction allows for improved imaging and quicker data collection to further the clinical utility of OCTA technology by accommodating natural eye movement.”
Vital Stats: Optovue’s AngioVue OCTA technology will be highlighted in multiple ASRS 2016 scientific presentations. Optovue is the first company to develop and commercialize the pioneering OCTA technology. Utilizing light rays to form detailed three-dimensional images of the retina, physicians are able to quickly visualize the blood flow in the retina. The AngioVue System produces a single image, derived from OCT data, that complements FA, but with a number of advantages. Unlike FA, the AngioVue System does not require the use of dye injections, and can be accomplished in a matter of seconds.; (510) 897-2914

CLX Integrates With Ocuco’s Practice Management Software Acuitas

Product: CLX integration with Ocuco’s Acuitas
Top Line: CLX, a contact lens ordering, managing and marketing system, has recently integrated with Ocuco’s practice management software Acuitas, a management solution that has recently been rolled out in the U.S.
Close Up: CLX streamlines the way Acuitas users order contact lenses for their patients by providing single order entry capability, key metrics and profitability management, and marketing solutions.
“Previously, our staff had to enter all contact lens orders into our practice management system and then call, email or fax those orders to our distributor,” said John Abbate, COO of Wing Eyecare, a 15-location practice out of Cincinnati. “With this integration between Acuitas and CLX, we have been able to avoid double-entry of all contact lens orders, which has helped us reduce errors and make the entire contact lens ordering process practically seamless.
“Between the efficiency of ordering and the revenue-enhancing marketing solutions, the Acuitas/CLX integration is clearly one of the best advances we’ve seen in our software in the past year.”
CLX also offers users turnkey marketing solutions designed to retain patients and increase revenues for the practice.
“Aside from ordering and managing their contact lens data, CLX users like Wing Eyecare have access to My CL Reorder, an automated text and email notification system that tells patients when they’re due to reorder,” said CLX product manager Jeremy Bono. “With My CL Reorder, patients are provided with a personalized link on your practice’s website, which deters the patient from ordering from an online retailer.”
Vital Stats: CLX System is a cloud-based management platform specifically designed to improve the efficiency and accuracy of contact lens administration as well as to provide valuable data and robust metrics reporting. It is integrated with five of the leading eyecare practice management systems. Please see complete list of partners here.; (314) 743-0781 x2339
