THIRD TIME’S A CHARM FOR REICHERT. The Ocular Response Analyzer G3, a tonometer capable of measuring corneal hysteresis, was recently launched by Reichert Technologies. An indication of the biomechanical properties of the cornea, corneal hysteresis is different from thickness or topography. It is a tissue property that provides additional comprehensive information about ocular biomechanics. A low measurement has been shown to be a glaucoma progression risk factor. This third-generation ORA is user-friendly with fully automated alignment and a unique chinrest-less design. It also provides the patented Corneal Compensated IOP (IOPcc) measurement. For more information, contact Reichert Technologies at 716.686.4500 or reichert.com/ora. SMART VISION LABS PRESENTS THE SVONE AUTOREFRACTOR. The portable, Shack-Hartmann wavefront aberrometer attaches to an iPhone 5s (included; no plans yet for an upgrade to 6s) to objectively determine the refractive error of the eye. The smartphone-based autorefractor’s portability is a boon to remote clinics (mission trips, nursing homes, school screenings, corporate health fairs, etc.), but its practical uses in the office include improved patient flow, reduced wait time in the exam lane, and a child-friendly, open-field design. For more information, contact Smart Vision Labs at 212.796.6124 or smartvisionlabs.com. ALLERGAN INTRODUCES A NEW OPTION FOR DRY EYE.

Available over-the-counter, the drops are formulated with glycerin and a unique blend of the active ingredient CMC which binds to the eye surface and provides long-lasting relief from dry eye discomfort.
