WOC – A Congress Uniting the World of Ophthalmology
29th June 2018
Over 160 years of shared knowledge uniting Ophthalmologists around the world
What started in 1857 in Brussels has become one of the most notable events for ophthalmologists around the globe. Attracting over 10.000 specialists from 140 countries at this year’s congress held in Barcelona, originally held every 4 years WOC now takes place every two years as improved technology emerges and techniques advance for better diagnosis, understanding, and treatment of eye health conditions.
The products which impressed the professionals
Eye care professionals left our booth highly inspired after experiencing our new ST-50 smart table finding it compact, convenient, and elegant, ticking all the boxes for functionality, usability, ergonomics, and design. With its unique touch panel finger-tip swipe function for smooth operation, also a generous foot space for wheelchair users and low elevation stroke for examination of children all delivered on a small foot print which is critical in modern high flow clinics and hospitals, the ultimate slit lamp table ophthalmologists could wish for. Complementing the slit lamp table was CR-750S patient chair, quickly adjustable via buttons accommodated at the table top of ST-50, with many doctors welcoming this feature as it eases the overall examination and treatment procedure.
700GL NSW slit lamp was very intriguing for ophthalmologists, allowing fundus observation by narrowing the viewing angle using the integrated optical function in conjunction with a fundus lens, a quick and easy in/out function engages these optics instantly, optimising the slit lamp to give a better stereoscopic view of the fundus. As this is a built-in optical unit there is no change to the overall working distance creating a more comfortable procedure for ophthalmologists with less fatigue. A special coating and design of the optical lens increases the optical resolution delivering a sharper view during examinations which impressed not only posterior but also anterior specialists, a product with complete versatility for both disciplines.
DIS-1 integrated and compact imaging system was showcased on OM-9, also compatible for our complete surgical microscope range, consisting of a 1/3 inch CMOS colour sensor giving a full HD live video signal displayed on a monitor at an impressive 30 frames per second. Adjustment of the camera settings is made convenient via fingertip operation using the On-Screen-Display located on the side of the main unit.
Thank you to everyone who visited our stand making it a successful show and we are looking forward to welcoming you at our next stop which will be ESCRS 2018 in Vienna.
