Eye for things

Welch Allyn has been making Opthalmoscopes for many years and their innovative product, Pan Optic, makes it much easier to check out the fundus. Many doctors have trouble with seeing the "inside" of the patients' eyes and even for the General Practitioner, it is important to spot changes in the retina. (especially for patients with chronic diseases such as Diabetes and Hypertension) Pan Optic is better than the usual Opthalmoscope in several aspects. firstly, it is easier to use and locate landmarks within the eye, it has a 5 times greater viewing window, and for most patients without pupil dilation it is very hard to see a lot of the eye. this Pan Optic also enlarges the details in the eye so that more precise signs can be spotted. whether it's a student or a skilled opthalmologist using the panoptic, it makes life just easier to "see".

it's actually much easier to use than the traditional ophthalmoscope. but it doesn't come cheap..

The Emergency departments of many Australian Hopitals now have these as their standard Ophthalmoscopes. Unfortuately they do look a bit scarry and are a little different to use but the results are brilliant. 30% increased vissibility and greater overall comfort for the patient. I'm a big fan and but as stated the cost a bomb. About RRP $900 AUD. Given the average med student uses their ophthalmoscope, if they bother to get one about half a dozen times. It's really an expensive toy. But it is definitely going on my christmas list for my next tax return. Fundscopy is a really underated clinical investigation aminly becasue it is so difficult to get good results....this baby makes it worth while and fun. Equipmate
