ENDO OPTIKS 26.09.2007

MERIDIAN is the official distributor of ENDO OPTIKS for Switzerland.

Endoscopic Cyclo Photocoagulation (ECP) is a surgical approach to glaucoma management that employs light endoscopy and visualized laser application. Five patents combine the modalities of light, image, and laser in a single, powerful 20Ga instrument. The result is the selective ablation of pigmented, ciliary epithelium tissue, with minimal impact to surrounding, nontargeted anatomy.

Remarkably, all forms of glaucoma can be effectively treated with this technology. With continuous, direct imaging of the ciliary processes, controlled laser energy is delivered; IOP is lowered and aqueous production is controlled, with superior long-term results.

The comprehensive armamentarium of endoscopes, span the need from simple illumination, to laserimagingfibers – for anterior ECP applications as well as posterior PRP delivery. DCR probes are also provided with the higher intensity 12Watt power console. Optional consoles allow modular flexibility of light, image, and/or laser power selection.

The compact E2 system contains a video camera, xenon light source, and a semiconductor diode laser tuned to 810nm wavelength. This power console features adjustable laser output, pulse width, light and aiming beam intensity.

MERILAS 532? 26.09.2007

The new MERILAS 532? ophthalmic laser photocoagulator is designed for optimised ease of use, treatment efficiency, and safety. With its small size and weight it is the ideal unit for the environment where high performance combined with low space requirements is mandatory.

The new “Smart Cool” cooling system (Patent Pending) allows the MERILAS 532? to operate without the use of cooling fluids or a fan. This results in silent operation without any disturbing airflow into and from the housing.

Even with its small size and footprint the MERILAS 532? is equipped with a detachable user interface with colour touch screen and graphic user guidance and 2 Watt output power.

MICRORUPTOR V 26.09.2007

MICRORUPTOR V – Nd:YAG is a new Q-switched lasersystem – both ergonomically and economically designed for your practice.

MICRORUPTOR V – has a low breakdown threshold, is fully mobile, designed for good patient / doctor ergonomics and totally wheelchair accessible.

MICRORUPTOR V – consequently built up on the world famous Haag Streit Original 900 BQ® Slitlamp.

MICRORUPTOR V – with the unique focusing system allows for the most accurate focusing.

MICRORUPTOR V – can be combined with the MERILAS 532?, thus becoming the perfect Nd:YAG-Photocoagulator unit. Photocoagulators YAG-lasers
