Retina Institute of Indiana, P.C.

Equipment

The doctors at our facility have a number of state-of-the-art technical options at their disposal to aid the diagnostic process and treatment.
Here are some examples of the equipment used:

Optos 200Tx is one of the newest ultra-widefield retinal imaging devices.  Designed specifically for vitreoretinal specialists, the device supports the diagnosis, analysis, documentation and monitoring of ocular pathology.

The 200Tx is a revolutionary retinal imaging system that provides a unique view of the periphery where evidence of diseases such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy may be first present.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is another way of looking at the eye using a laser-like light source known as a super luminescent diode (SLD). Compared to lasers which produce a single peak wavelength, an SLD produces a wider band of wavelengths, enabling information to be gathered simultaneously at multiple wavelengths.

The IQ 577 is a high-power, true yellow laser system for use by eye care physicians to treat sight-threatening eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma.

The IQ 577 offers tangible benefits to both patients and physicians. Patients benefit from less stress. The higher inherent absorption in blood helps to reduce the therapeutic power requirements and resultant patient discomfort. Physicians benefit from efficiencies due to its easy to understand user interface, wireless foot pedal control with power adjust capability, and audible confirmation of adjustments.

MicroPulse used in IQ 577 is a tissue sparing technology offering a benefit over standard laser delivery by electronically "chopping" each laser pulse into microsecond bursts. This enhances the physician's control over the energy delivered to tissue, opening the door to new ocular treatment options, with the goal, once again, of achieving a more tissue sparing laser therapy.
