Whether you run a small ophthalmic outpatient center or an eye care center in a major hospital, you need the same high-quality machines to give your patients the best possible care—for the best possible price.

And since the type of care you provide is determined by the injuries and problems of your patients, how will you provide that high level of care if you can’t tell exactly what is aggravating your patient to begin with?

Great care starts with great equipment. Check out these three machines that can help your ophthalmology department thrive.

Active Microscopes

No matter if you’re treating a patient with glaucoma, cataracts, or for an embedded object, you need to be able to see deep into the layers of the eye itself—and that includes all the individual cells and other information at the smallest level possible.

For that, you need a confocal microscope. With this machine, you can scan the full cornea, endothelium, and epithelium. You can get rapid gel-immersion scans and real-time in-vivo histology. You can collect an automatic cell count and discover exact locations of corneal layers especially in LASIK corneas.

Of course, a machine like this will come with a price tag, but the number of functions it performs makes this an investment for the well-being of your patients.

Eye-Mapping Machines

Combine the effectiveness of that high-powered microscope with one of these corneal topography machines and the result is a supremely advanced ophthalmology department.

The benefits of a top-notch corneal topographer are many: faster examinations, better-resolution images, varied views and scales, fast calculations and high definition displays. All of these things create a better experience for your physicians and your patients, which translates to better earnings for your department.

Unparalleled Ultrasound Devices

 There are some eye ailments that can only be accurately assessed using an ultrasound machine. For those problems, look for an ultrasound machine that is compact and lightweight and doesn’t need to be connected to a PC to provide excellent results. These ultimate ophthalmic instruments provide accurate pacymetry measurement, fast biometry measurement and the ability to be used in auto or manual modes for high levels of customization for your scans.

When your ophthalmology department has these three machines at hand, so many amazing things can be done. Depending on the expertise of your physicians and the budgetary leeway you have, you can provide excellent services to your patients and pass along your cost savings to them.

It doesn’t take a scientist to see how that is an excellent business plan.
