In late March, Bausch + Lomb announced the introduction of 25- and 27-gauge Bi-Blade
dual port vitrectomy cutters for the Stellaris Elite vision enhancement system.
Bausch + Lomb says its Bi-Blade cutters cut in both the forward and backward directions, enabling two cuts per cycle, as opposed to single-port cutters. The design used with the Stellaris Elite surgical platform offers up to 15,000 cuts per minute, allowing for increased flow efficiency and control.

Coburn’s New Visual Field Analyzer and Retinal Camera
echnologies recently introduced two new products: the SK-850A visual field analyzer and the SK-650A retinal camera.
The SK-850A comes in two different models (standard and expert), with the expert design coming equipped with enhanced features for more advanced testing. The SK-850A also includes auto gaze tracking (3D fixation monitoring with infrared light tracking of the pupil on the x, y and z planes), easy-to-read and print reports, and automatic calibration and brightness measurement.
The SK-650A retinal camera is a nonmydriatic camera that is also DICOM-compatible. The device features an auto mosaic
function (a nine-point fixation system allowing for auto-mosaic photography over a large retinal area), red-free visual testing for comparison of nerve fiber layer images over time, and a new optical design that Coburn says features full 45-degree image capture in order to avoid losing fundus information.
