Harlow, UK – 24th July 2020 - John Weiss & Son, the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard ophthalmic micro-surgical instruments and procedures, is pleased to announce that a breath shield has been exclusively developed for the OMEGA 500 indirect ophthalmoscope.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, users of binocular indirect ophthalmoscopes are facing challenges when it comes to examining patients. Ophthalmic societies are advising that examiners attach breath shields to their ophthalmic devices to reduce their potential risk of infection.
The OMEGA 500 lightweight breath shield covers the mouth, nose and chin area. It offers a clear view through the ophthalmoscope during examinations, thanks to a cut-out in the optics.
Easy to attach to the instrument, the breath shield allows comfortable working, as there is no contact with the wearer’s nose and all the controls on the ophthalmoscope are freely accessible. The OMEGA 500 can be charged directly on the EN 50 UNPLUGGED wall-mounted charging station while the breath shield remains attached.
The OMEGA 500 breath shield is available to purchase online now from John Weiss’ sister company Haag-Streit UK at https://hsuk.co/omega500breathshield.
