Systemic diseases such as diabetes mellitus and hypertension leave footprints in the retina and aid the practitioner in the evaluation of these and many other diseases.
Innovative Axial PointSource™ Optics c The practitioner is actually viewing the fundus through the mirror that directs illumination into the eye, maximizing the alignment of the viewing axis with the illuminated areas.
How it worksa. Converges the illumination to a point at the patient's cornea, allowing easy entry into small pupils b. Then diverges the illumination pathway to the patient's retina, illuminating a very wide area of the fundus c. Simultaneously enables the practitioner to view the illuminated area on virtually the same axis, creating the widest field of view attainable Traditional quality, reliability 3.5 V Coaxial Ophthalmoscope Welch Allyn Coaxial Ophthalmoscopes provide benefits over standard ophthalmoscopes including easier entry into the eye, a larger field of view, reduced glare, and bright, long-lasting LED light.
