Orascoptic Eye Zoom Announced at ADA Meeting in San Antonio


For the past 6 months or so, I've been working on a secret beta test for Orascoptic.  The test was for a new magnification system the company is calling Eye Zoom.  

The idea is a really good one.  Sometimes you want your surgical telescopes to be more of a "wide angle" meaning a lower magnification level... but sometimes you want your surgical telescopes to be at a high level of magnification.

In the past, the only choice you really had was to switch glasses.  While it worked, it was cumbersome and who really wanted to be changing glasses on a regular basis?

So, the smart minds at Orascoptic came up with Eye Zoom.  By simply turning the silver barrels in the photo above, you can vary the magnification level from 3.0 to 5.0.  Quick, easy, and efficient.

For hygiene exams, I would dial them back to a lower level and zoom in if there was something I wanted to take a closer look at.  After the exam, as saw  patients for procedures, I would dial them back to 5.0 so that I could deliver treatment at the magnification level I was used to.

Over the summer, we went through a couple of different beta setups and I can tell you that the finals work well, are comfortable, and have incredible optics!!!

After nearly 6 months of near daily use, I can state without a doubt that this product is highly recommended!!!
