Optomed launches disposable eye cup for its handheld cameras

Optomed introduces Optomed E-Safe, a disposable eye cup, to be used with its handheld cameras. The eye cup is the part of the handheld camera, that is in contact with the patient when imaging the fundus. Previously Optomed cameras have used only reusable eye cups, which are disinfected after each use. The coronavirus pandemic has further increased the demand for disposable medical products and Optomed has responded to this customer need by designing a disposable eye cup to speed up the imaging process and raise the level of hygiene.

Ms. Niina Huikuri, Vice President Marketing comments: “The demand for disposable eye cups has existed before, but the pandemic really escalated the amount of customer requests. I am very proud that we were able to bring the E-Safe to the market so fast and meet the needs of our customers globally. Especially our US customers have really been waiting for this product launch.”
