ZEISS

ZEISS will present ZEISS Visucore 500 at O-SHOW24. This high-precision system combines objective and subjective refraction to quickly deliver precise data regardless of the size of the refraction room or the level of staff experience.

In response to demands for a digital, holistic experience, this state-of-the-art instrument automatically guides you through the process; even the near refraction is digital.

With a footprint of 0.8 m2 , ZEISS Visucore 500 is ideal when space is limited. Built-in mirrors and a lens make it possible to physically create an optical focus in the distance. This small footprint may allow for another refraction lane to expand your exam capabilities, or to use valuable space more efficiently.

ZEISS Visucore 500 can be integrated into the ZEISS ecosystem for a seamless workflow. It is controlled using an iPad via the ZEISS Visuconsult 500, where the refraction values are transferred to the available centration unit and ultimately become an automated part of the order via ZEISS Visustore.

CSL Seqirus

Cationorm (cationic nanoemulsion), is a preservative-free, hydrating, and lubricating emulsion eye drop that protects the eye surface, relieving the discomfort and irritation of persistent dry eye caused by prolonged use of contact lenses, or environmental conditions.1

Its triple action repairs the lipid layer to reduce evaporation by lubricating and stabilising the tear film, and restores the moisture balance in the muco-aqueous layer of the tear film. It also forms a barrier to lock in moisture, giving dry eyes the time they need to heal.2,3,4,5

Administered as one drop, up to four-times daily in the affected eye, Cationorm is suitable for use with contact lenses,6  and gentle enough to use every day.7  

Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme Information:  

Cationorm Multi Dose (10 mL). Authority Required (Streamlined) 6172.  

Refer to PBS Schedule for full authority information. Cationorm (30 x 0.4 mL) is not listed on the PBS.
