John Weiss & Son, the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard ophthalmic micro-surgical instruments and procedures, is an authorised UK distributor for the HEINE OMEGA 500 binocular indirect ophthalmoscope.
The OMEGA 500 is a unique synchronised optical system that provides stereoscopic viewing in a range of pupil sizes. With a maintenance-free construction, and supported by a five year guarantee, the OMEGA 500 is available with a flexible, modular power system and a choice of LED or Xenon Halogen illumination for perfect colour rendering. It is designed to provide the ultimate in quality, performance and flexibility.
By moving one adjustment lever, it is possible to change the angle of illumination (parallax) and the line of sight for each pupil (convergence) to gain a fully-illuminated, stereoscopic fundus view, through pupils as small as 1mm. The OMEGA 500 also has the functionality to maximise the stereopsis in large pupils.
The OMEGA 500 includes ergonomically arranged controls, an exclusive flip-up mechanism (to raise and lower the optics for easier communication), a comfortable headband design (to relieve neck strain) and a flexible, modular, power arrangement (to provide a system for every environment).
The dustproof construction, and mounting of the optics on an aluminium frame, make the OMEGA 500 maintenance-free and durable. The latest LEDs, combined with high-quality materials, ensure a virtually unlimited working life.
