New G-6 Gonio Lens from Volk Offers True 360°
Lens Reduces Eye Examination Time by 25 Percent or More

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Tuesday, June 29, 2010 -- (Business Wire India) -- Volk Optical has developed a new Gonio lens with the most comprehensive sweeping views of the anterior segment of the eye. The G-6 Gonio's six closely aligned mirrors provide a true 360° view during glaucoma screening, without any lens adjustment required.

The lens' six mirrors are equally angled at 63°, eliminating gaps for visualisation of the entire anterior segment at 1.0x magnification. During examination, two of the mirrors are aligned in the superior and inferior regions, while the remaining four mirrors provide a continuous view through the nasal and temporal regions. Practitioners can quickly scan across mirrors, without the confusion of tracking where one view ends and the next begins that can come from rotating the lens. This fast scanning and less need to manoeuvre the slit lamp can reduce examination time by 25 percent or more.

The G-6's taller, tapered profile is easier to hold within the orbit and lessens the chance that a patient can squeeze it off the eye. The "nf" (no flange/no fluid) design of this lens facilitates use without viscous interface solutions. For handling flexibility, the G-6 comes with a ring or a versatile 2-in-1 handle that can easily be adjusted to create a straight or 45° angled grip.
