In the lead up to the UK’s flagship optical show, Topcon (Great Britain) Medical Limited outlines what show visitors can expect from them at the NEC. Exhibiting on stands A50 and D50, the Platinum Sponsors will be showcasing their vast range of optical equipment and software solutions and hosting a busy educational programme.


With a dedicated Topcon University area for clinical education there will be interactive on-stand sessions with and without CET. CET lecture speakers are Professor Nicholas Rumney, Dr Scott Mackie, Dr Trusit Dave and Susan Bowers and they will be covering topics on OCT in Glaucoma, OCT Referral Refinement and Dry Eye. Full information about these sessions can be found HERE.  


Adding to the busy on-stand education activity, Topcon’s Clinical Affairs team will be holding non-CET ‘Meet the Expert’ sessions which will focus on the 3D OCT, CV-5000, SL-D701 and Henson 9000.


Topcon University’s sponsored Keynote Lecture at midday on Sunday will be held by Mr Vasilios P. Papastefanou, Consultant Ophthalmologist from Royal London Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Mr Papastefanou will discuss Diabetic Retinopathy and Maculopathy – Imaging Developments with Swept Source OCT and Swept Source OCT-A. Please go to the Optrafair website to book onto this lecture.


Optrafair delegates will see the launch of a brand new software, Optoflow from Topcon Healthcare Solutions (THS). Optoflow is a vendor neutral image, communication and data management software supporting OCTs, SLOs, fundus cameras, visual field devices and many more, regardless of type and brand. The dedicated THS stand A50 will have multiple demo stations, with some showing full connectivity to instruments to showcase Optoflow’s capabilities.


Topcon Stand @Optrafair 2018Headlining in the OCT area, will be the industry leading 3D OCT-1 Maestro and its latest developments, with its NHS Diabetic Eye Screening Programme approved built-in true colour Fundus camera.


DRI OCT Triton will also be headlining on this leading exhibitor’s stand. The posterior and anterior Swept Source OCT with OCT Angiography gives you greater confidence in early diagnosis, the ability to track changes over time and increased patient comfort.


Following its launch, Eye-Light® has been receiving growing interest from dry eye experts in the UK and beyond. This latest treatment for dry eye uses Intense Pulse Light (IPL) and Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) to treat Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and simultaneously treats both upper and lower lids without the application of gel, which is a huge plus in busy dry eye clinics.


Further products will include digital imaging solutions, visual fields and auto-refractometers to name but a few, as well as a comprehensive range of refraction furniture to suit all sizes and styles of practices.


See you on stands A50 and D50 at the NEC Birmingham between Saturday 30th March and Monday 1st April.
