The Optus Daytona is one of the most cutting edge medical instruments out right now. It uses two laser wavelengths to penetrate deep into the eye, scanning the retina very quickly. The procedure is done in less than five seconds per eye, usually. Another advantage of this high tech machine is that due to the aperture of the machine, it is able to take a high quality scan of the retina without requiring the patient to be dilated . That is right, this machine requires no dilatation for scanning the retina.
Daytona represents the next generation of Optos ultra-wide field retinal imaging technology, and has been scaled to accommodate smaller office spaces while providing high resolution imaging, and adding new auto-fluorescence capabilities. Weighing only about 25 kg, Daytona’s new, ergonomic body is designed to increase patient comfort, as well as make it easier to correctly position the eye. In addition to the smaller, sleeker design, Daytona features an improved user interface with its intuitive, workflow based software. Daytona also offers “plug-n-play” installation, a modular robust build-design to simplify product support, image review capabilities and electronic image storage options. Daytona was designed to allow the globalization of the core Optos imaging technology, giving the opportunity to offer the benefits of optomap technology to more eyecare professionals and their patients around the world.
