      Optos eyes continued global growth with new eyecare technology made in Scotland

      This March, the company will launch an addition to its flagship technology called optical coherence tomography (OCT), which uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of a patient’s retina. “On our latest device, we’re the first to allow an OCT scan to take place anywhere on the retina,” Kennedy explained. “That’s been developed here in Scotland and it allows doctors to see different layers, a bit like a CT scan, across the retina, whereas traditional devices typically only look at the central area. OCT scans are really important for many eye diseases as they allow you to ...

      Australia’s Cylite promises the next generation OCT

      An Australian company is taking on the giants of ophthalmology with its own OCT device. LEWIS WILLIAMS looks at what the Cylite HP-OCT is doing different to set itself apart. When visiting trade displays at conferences, it is always wise to pay particular attention to the lower-key exhibits. That was certainly the case at the recent O=MEGA19 conference and trade exhibition held at Melbourne’s Convention and Exhibition Centre in July. There, on the Medmont stand, was an understated inclusion – an Australian designed and made optical coherence tomography (OCT) instrument. It is difficult to imagine a more unlikely or ...
