What Are the Features of the Coaxial Ophthalmoscope?

- A cobalt blue filter – can be used to identify corneal abrasions
- A polarising filter – virtually eliminates corneal reflection
- A red-free filter – for use with any aperture

- Supplied with 28 focusing lenses – offer a range of -25 to +40 diopters
What Are Coaxial Optics?
By producing a shadow-free spot, Welch Allyn's coaxial optics allow easier entry into undilated pupils. They also produce a larger field of view compared to standard ophthalmoscopes.
