How Are the Ophthalmoscopes Images so Clear?
The Ophthalmoscope will produce crystal clear images regardless of corneal reflexes, pupil size, and external light sources. The reason why is because the design incorporates an Aspherical Optical System (AOS).
What is the Aspherical Optical System?
The purpose of the Aspherical Optical System (AOS) is to eliminate corneal and iris reflexes in order to provide large, crisp and glare-free fundus images. The numbers below correspond with the numbers in the image and demonstrate how the AOS works.
- A flat, elliptical beam is produced by HEINE's Aspherical Optical System.
- The beam is passed from the ophthalmoscope to the cornea.
- The beam redirects iris and corneal reflexes.
- The elliptical light beam enters through the lower half of the cornea, and separates into the illumination beam and the observation beam. Reflexes are diverted away from the observation beam due to the curvature of the reflective cornea. Due to the flat compressed form of the light beam, a maximum amount of light enters through the pupil.
- Once past the anterior chamber, the light beam illuminates a large area of the retina.

How Durable Is the HEINE BETA 200 S?
The BETA 200 S Set is incredibly durable because of its construction. Firstly the aluminium frame is incredibly tough and durable, suitable for withstanding knocks, abrasion and scratches. However what really aids in its durability is its LED light that is designed for longevity.
LED lights will usually last for around 50,000 hours, and this is no different with the HEINE BETA 200 S. Not only will it last for around 50,000 hours, but it won't ever require replacing or maintaining, perfect for giving you peace of mind when at work.

How Bright Is the LED Light and is it Adjustable?
In order to ensure that the light is catered to your needs and those of your patients, the brightness can be adjusted between 3% and 100% of its original brightness. This can be altered by using your index finger, which is ideal for optimising settings during use. The LED illumination offers precise illumination, something that is ideal for funduscopic examinations where the margin for error is low.
The brightness will also be continuous and not fade the more time that you use it. This ensures that you won't get inconsistencies from the images that you receive while you use the device, ideal for ensuring that the diagnosis that you give is as accurate as can be.
