The longer wavelength light provides better tissue penetration, allowing visualization into the deepest layers of the eye1
Swept Source OCT technology; scanning speed of 100,000 A-scans/sec
The fast scanning speed of 100,000 A-scans/sec enables capture of clear B-scans* by acquiring more A-scans within a given image acquisition time. This helps to reduce artifacts from involuntary eye movements such as saccades and blinks.

Invisible scan lines
The invisible 1,050nm wavelength light helps patients concentrate on the fixation target during the scan, reducing involuntary eye movement. It supports more efficient workflow in a practice by reducing the need to rescan.
