About the Octopus 900®

The roots of Octopus date back to the 1970s. The Octopus 900 represents the most complete 90-degree full-field projection perimeter available today for private practices, clinics, teaching institutions and scientific applications. It allows for testing in all levels of disease – from early detection, tracking progression or performing the most sensitive examinations at the end stage of disease.

About RTVue® and iVue®

RTVue was the first FDA cleared Fourier domain (also known as spectral domain) OCT launched in the United States, and also the first OCT cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for both corneal and retinal imaging. The iVue is the compact Fourier domain version of the RTVue OCT, offering the same scanning speed and resolution as the larger system, that includes scanning and reports for retina, retina nerve fiber and cornea assessment by the clinician.
