Centervue® Eidon AF

EIDON Image of Retinal Metabolism

EIDON AF represents the natural evolution of Eidon TrueColor Confocal Scanner, including all its features and functionalities, preserving its unsurpassed quality of image, and adding autofluorescence imaging capabilities.

EIDON AF with Autofluorescence capability is now an extraordinary tool for obtaining multiple types of highvalue information from multiple imaging modalities:

  • White illumination is able to provide high-quality TrueColor imaging
  • Red-free is useful to enhance the detail of the retinal vasculature and retinal nerve fiber layer
  • Infrared light provides information corresponding to the choroid
  • Autofluorescence allows the assessment of the Retinal Pigment Epithelial (RPE) layer

Centervue® EIDON AF Key Features:

  • TrueColor, Autofluorescence, Infrared and Red-free Confocal images
  • High details and contrast in the same device
  • High fidelity of the image without image averaging
  • Short exam time and enhanced patient confort
  • Provides a panoramic view of the retinal autofluorescence (up to 110°!)
  • Easy to use, allows to speed up patient workflow.

The importance of Autofluorescence Imaging in Clinical Practice

Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF) imaging is a non-invasive technique which provides information on retinal metabolism and health, through showing changes in the integrity of the Retinal Pigment Epithelial (RPE) layer. FAF imaging may help to understand metabolic alterations of the RPE in the pathogenesis of several retinal disorders. FAF provides these clinically useful information by taking an image based on the distribution pattern of fluorescent pigments accumulating in the RPE, such as lipofuscin. RPE dysfunction is visualized as an increased FAF signal, that is bright areas in the image, corresponding to lipofuscin accumulation RPE or photoreceptor death is visualized as a decreased FAF signal. That is dark areas in the image, corresponding to lipofuscin absence.
