Ophthalmoscope for Examining the Ocular Fundus
The standard ophthalmoscope is a diagnostic instrument, used to examine the ocular fundus for discrepancies and changes (ophthalmoscopy). The retina and blood vessels can be thoroughly inspected during eye exams. With that being said, there is a basic difference between direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy. For necessary illumination during eye examinations, LED or Xenon Halogen bulbs are used, which are powered by battery handles or rechargeable handles. For pupils of different sizes, our ophthalmoscope models are available with various lenses and apertures.
Various Lighting Options: LED and Xenon Halogen Illumination (XHL)
LED bulbs have a longer service life and higher illumination intensity than Xenon Halogen bulbs. Moreover, LED ophthalmoscopes are more energy-efficient and need to be charged less frequently. As a result, LED ophthalmoscopes are ideal for frequent use in the surgery, both due to their availability and higher precision.
Battery Handle Types: The Battery Handle and the Rechargeable Handle
The portable ophthalmoscopes are available in various voltage versions. Commonly, the 2.5 volt versions are suitable for use with battery handles and the 3.5 volt variants are intended for use with rechargeable handles. The handles with integrated rechargeable battery are advantageous if used on a regular basis, as they can be stored and charged in table chargers. In our shop, we also offer alternative options for charging the devices, such as the universal chargeable Heine Beta 4 USB handle that is compatible with all 3.5 volt Heine ophthalmoscopes.
Compact Pocket Instruments from Heine
In this category, you will find handy pocket ophthalmoscopes such as the HEINE mini 3000 ophthalmoscope. The ergonomic device is available with XHL Xenon Halogen technology or LED HQ technology and can be extended with the appropriate battery handle and a suitable storage bag.
Universal Devices for Narrow and Wide Pupils
The Heine Beta 200S ophthalmoscope with aspherical optical system (AOS) is also suitable for narrow, non-dilated pupils. The shock-proof device is equipped with a connectible red-free filter for improved contrast when depicting the retinal vessels and its brightness is infinitely variable and regulated with one finger. As with every Heine ophthalmoscope, the Beta 200 is available with XHL Xenon Halogen and LED HQ illumination.
The PanOptic from Welch Allyn provides a "panoramic view" of the eye. It is suitable for use with non-dilated pupils and provides an exceptional level of magnification. Another advantage is the larger distance between the doctor and the patient. Moreover, there is no need to spend money on batteries, because it is used with a handle that is charged with help of a high-performance table charger (Li-ion).
Accessories and Additional Diagnostic Instruments
In addition to individual otoscope sets, Praxisdienst offers an assortment of diagnostic sets with otoscope head, handle and case. In the Otoscope and Ophthalmoscope category, we provide you with an extensive selection of ophthalmoscope accessories, such as standard chargers and desktop chargers, replacement bulbs and other diagnostic equipment, e.g. retinoscopes.
