The MC-500 Vixi by NIDEK is a photocoagulator with customizable use of one, two or three different wavelengths. The operator can choose the best color or combination of colors for treatment of varying ocular pathology. The device supports the mostly used colors 532 nm Green, 577 nm Yellow, or 647 nm Red . To get the best results you can choose your wavelengths for each condition. Green is most common for treating retinal pathology, yellow for lesions close to the macula and red for photocoagulation of deep choroidal pathology.
The device comes with 14 preprogrammed scan patterns for all types of retinal pathology. The size of the scan spot is continuously variable from 100 to 500 µm. This enables the eye-surgeon to easily compensate for changes due to laser contact lenses.
The MC-500 Vixi can be operated in three different modes. Single mode is used for conventional laser emission. The auto manipulation mode is for repeated laser emission with variable interval times and conventional coagulation settings in a selectable scan pattern. This allows the surgeon to continue laser emission while confirming spot placement. The scan mode is for repeated laser emission with a fixed interval time, high power, and instantaneous speed.
An LCD touch screen makes it easy to browse through the different scanning and coagulation options. Different sets of parameters (color, power output, emission time, and interval time) can be saved and selected by only one-touch.
They even thought about the environment and realized a 60% reduction of power consumption compared to the previous edition. This new laser was introduced at the American Society of Retina Specialists Annual Meeting last weekend in Boston.
