In comparison with standard methods of ophthalmological diagnostics in veterinary practice, video diagnostic systems have the following advantages:
Portability and ease of operation of the devices (the weight of the devices is only 200-300 grams), allows you to conduct a diagnostic study of the patient in any position and in any condition. The devices allow you to conduct research in any species of animals: domestic, laboratory, wild, exotic, amphibians and reptiles, birds and even large insects.
Video diagnostics is performed non-contact and absolutely painless; the intensity of the light stream is small. This allows you to conduct research even in aggressive or timid animals.
Since the image of eye structures is comfortable and convenient for the doctor to view on the monitor, there is no load on the eyes of the researcher, they do not get tired and do not get tired because of the eyepieces.
The devices are very light, and the study can be carried out at arm's length. In this way, a safe distance is provided when examining any restless patients. At the same time, the doctor fully sees the patient, controls the situation, and in case of fright or aggression of the animal is able to safely and timely interrupt the study.
The video Image can be recorded and saved for further viewing and study at any time of the diagnosis. The video system software allows you to broadcast diagnostics online or to a wide audience at lectures and conferences.
Broadcast image on the monitor allows you to easily and clearly explain to the owner the essence of the detected pathological process and show the results of treatment.
Working with diagnostic video systems is simple, intuitive, and does not require long-term training or special skills. It can be easily mastered by a veterinary specialist of any level.
Video diagnostic systems are universal multi-functional devices that allow you to: Ophthalmological research: biomicroscopy, gonioscopy and ophthalmoscopy. Dental research: use the system to examine the condition of the teeth and oral cavity. As well as: examine the visible mucous membranes, conduct dermatological studies, perform video microscopy of external skin tumors, etc.
The use of modern equipment makes a favorable impression on animal owners and increases the status of a veterinary specialist.
Video diagnostic systems are compatible with personal computers and laptops of almost any manufacturers and operating systems (both the newest and oldest models).
Diagnostic video systems creates a high-contrast, clear, color image of eye structures on a computer or TV monitor with a magnification of up to 50 times.
Such a large magnification, combined with high image clarity, is currently not provided by any of the existing diagnostic systems
