Optovue launches OCTA in optometry
LAS VEGAS – Optovue introduced AngioVue, a noninvasive 3-D visualization of retinal blood flow, as an addition to its conventional OCT, here at Vision Expo West.
Optovue’s senior director of U.S. sales, Joe Garibaldi, told Primary Care Optometry News that this conference represented the product’s launch in optometry.
With AngioVue, “You’re getting fluorescein angiography-like results and indocyanine green results,” Garibaldi said, in 5 seconds, with no injections.
He noted that the technology is a software upgrade to the Avanti OCT.
The company also announced the launch of Vault Mapping software, an addition to its iVue/iFusion and iScan OCT systems, in response to the demand for more efficient fitting with scleral lenses, Garibaldi said.
According to company literature, the vault map visualizes and quantifies central corneal clearance; the change map evaluates clearance change resulting from lens settling between scans; and the anterior display evaluates superior, temporal, inferior and nasal landing zones. – by Nancy Hemphill, ELS, FAAO
