A round-up of the latest ophthalmic products

Cefuroxime preparation for intracameral use

The powder solution for injection is administered with 5 mL of sterile sodium chloride 0.9%, meaning dilution and preparation mistakes can easily be avoided. APROKAM is available in single doses or in boxes of ten vials and each vial is labelled to ensure traceability of the product within each patient's file.

Pan retinal laser lens

The lens features a flanged contact element for greater stability, as well as providing distortion-free vision. With a double aspheric glass design, the lens reportedly provides the highest resolution imaging across the whole viewing field.

Manipulation of the lens is simplified due to the lens' reduced size. This gives the lens superior viewing power and better image quality. Available with 50x magnification and 2.0x laser magnification, the H-R Wide Field is ideal for wide field diagnosis and pan retinal photocoagulation laser treatment.

Silicone oil tamponades

The silicone oil can be used to fill the eye after retinal surgery. This provides good stabilization of the retina. When the oil has been removed after the retina has been reattached, the gas is reabsorbed into the eye and no additional surgery is required.

The ready-to-use gas syringes eradicate the need for large gas containers, meaning only the gas-air mixture has to be adjusted. Each gas is colour-coded for ease of use and access. The gas can even be used in low-light conditions due to the good contrast and bright colours.
