OPTOHOOD AIMS TO IMPROVE IMAGE QUALITY This patent-pending apparatus for a non-mydriatic retinal camera, OCT, ocular wavefront aberrometer and glaucoma diagnostic equipment integrates with most ophthalmic instruments. By reducing ambient light to facilitate mydriasis, OptoHood minimizes small pupil artifact. Its built-in ocular shutters force the pupil to dilate to its maximum, allowing more light into the eye and improving both diagnosis and image quality with a shorter dilation time, according to the company. For more information, contact OptoHood at 858-863-OPTO or OptoHood.com or Sales@OptoHood.com.
