OptiMedica Launches Suite of Integrated Practice Solutions for the Pascal Photocoagulator

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(HSMN NewsFeed)--OptiMedica® Corporation, a leading developer of ophthalmic therapeutic devices, today introduced a new portfolio of products, including the Pascal Laser Indirect Ophthalmoscope (LIO) which was granted marketing clearance by the FDA this month, Automated LaserLog(TM) with treatment summary printout and Intelligent Device Management. These products increase treatment options and efficiencies for the ophthalmic practice and will be showcased this week at the 110th annual American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) annual meeting in Las Vegas.

"OptiMedica is committed to delivering the ultimate customer experience," said Dr. David Mordaunt, CEO of OptiMedica. "This includes integrating the best in service with best in products to improve productivity of the entire practice."

The Pascal LIO incorporates superior optics, functional ergonomics and easy-to-use controls.
