Improved visualization of the eye&39;s anatomy is the aim of a new series of high-resolution micro-endoscopes from Endo Optiks.

“Surgeons will find improved visualization when performing ECP, PRP and diagnostics,” according to Martin Uram, creator of the endoscope and co-founder of Endo Optiks. The pixel fibre optic bundle is claimed to be 70% more than those currently on the market which means an expanded field of view to 160 degrees.

The new High Resolution Endoscopes are available in two versions. The Triple Function Micro-Endoscope combines laser, light and imaging and has a 19G Probe. The Triple Function scopes will be available in both straight and curved tips. The Dual Function Micro-Endoscope combines light and imaging and has a 20G probe. The Dual Function scopes have a straight tip.
