Carl Zeiss Style Tower Illumination
The classic slit lamp design of the ESL-1200 provides easy access for thorough eye examinations as well as contact lens fittings. The illumination system sits level with the observation system, and a flip lever allows operators to easily change magnification.
Ezer’s ESL-1200 advanced Cross-Angle Stereo Vision Converging Binocular Optical System offers practitioners innovative optics at a short observer-to-patient distance, providing unsurpassed clarity and sharpness, while delivering crisp images with excellent resolution.
Advanced optics in the ESL-1200 offer a two-step magnification that can be easily changed throughout the exam, between 1x to 1.6x, using the instrument’s conveniently located lever. Final magnification ratios are equivalent to 10x (Ø18mm) and 16x (Ø14.5mm) with the 10x eyepiece. Fine adjustments can also be made to the PD and optical correction, which allows for easy viewing and eliminates the eye fatigue that is so often associated with slit lamp exams.
Large Binocular Field of View for Pupil Distance Adjustment
Ezer’s ESL-1200 offers a very large binocular field of view of Ø18mm and Ø14.5mm, with high resolution and a 55mm-82mm depth of focus. The eyepieces are adjustable to all pupillary distances, allowing for a fatigue-free, relaxed experience—even during long examinations.
The ESL-1200 features diopter adjustments of ±6D using the 10x eyepiece. A focus test rod will aid and confirm the microscope’s accurate adjustment. The unit’s red LED fixation light target with diopter compensation displays a dot with concentric circles. This feature is great to use when examining patients with refractive errors that exceed -15D.
High Clarity Luminance and Built-in Filters
The ESL-1200 utilizes a 6-volt, 20-watt high luminance halogen lamp that provides incredible clarity. Three built-in illumination pathway filters can be effortlessly inserted into the illumination pathway using the selection lever. Options include a heat absorption filter that aids in patient comfort during lengthy exams, a red-free filter that enhances structural contrast, and cobalt blue filter for use in fluorescein assessment.
Continuous Slit Rotation and Aperture Adjustment
The ESL-1200 enables users to modify slit width continuously from 0mm to 14mm. The slit becomes a circle at 14mm. The slit height also can be changed continuously, from 1mm to 14mm. The ESL-1200 offers a clear, broad field of view with four aperture diameters: 14mm, 9mm, 5.5mm, 0.3mm. Using precise movements and controls, operators can swing the main body of the slit horizontally to revolve the slit image at any angle in the vertical or horizontal direction, from 0° to 180°.
Ergonomically Designed Illumination Control
The smooth classic design of the ESL-1200 allows for precise movements and easy operation of the joystick and knobs. For example, the illumination lever is conveniently located next to the joystick and the brightness control switch can be set to high or normal, making diagnostic procedures even easier.
Integrated Control Joystick
The integrated joystick is simple to control and allows operators to acquire sharp images. The base operation of the ESL-1200 offers the following movements to provide flexibility, comfort and precision—forward and back movement to 90mm; left and right movement to 100mm, fine movement to 15mm and vertical movement to 30mm. The joystick moves horizontal for fine-tuning and vertical for height and target alignment.
Compact Table Top and Transformer
The ESL-1200 Slit Lamp is equipped with all of the necessary features and utilizes minimal space for easy maneuverability and accessibility. A compact instrument table top and transformer are included with the ESL-1200. In addition, the unit’s accessory drawer can be used to store the focusing test rod and other accessories.
Intuitive Design Allows for Easy, Precision Movement
The rheostat (power box) is located near the joystick for more convenient adjustments and one-hand operation. The slide base offers ease of use and better control with the joystick, while providing increased X-Y motion. For ease of maintenance, the transformer/tabletop is interchangeable between the ET-150 and the ET-175.
This ESL-1200 slit lamp can be equipped with the TN-180 / TN-180B applanation tonometer as well as several other accessories. The TN-180B tonometer does not include the Mount Adapter (MOUNTADAPTEZLX) to be connected to the slit lamp. You must buy the Mount Adapter (MOUNTADAPTEZLX) to use the tonometer TN-180B.
