PeriOptix™ Launching its New Higher Power Magnification Loupes at the California Dental Association Meeting
San Clemente, CA – September 9, 2011 – PeriOptix, Inc., one of the nation's leading providers of high quality magnification and illumination systems for medical and dental professionals, will be launching its newest high power optics technology at California Dental Association meeting in San Francisco, CA on September 22-24, 2011. PeriOptix will be at booths #705 and #2301 in the Moscone center.
PeriOptix will introduce a 4.0x prismatic loupe along with its award winning Solaris LED headlight. Prismatic loupes use a more sophisticated lensing system compared to conventional lower power Galilean optics. In addition to higher magnification, prismatic optics provides a clear, distortion free edge-to-edge image.
"We are very excited about the addition of these prismatic loupes to our line," states Keith Tholin, president and founder of PeriOptix. "Many clinicians have asked for higher power optics for their more demanding procedures. This line will enable experienced users to work under high power magnification without investing in an operating microscope".
The new prismatic loupes will be mounted on the Hogies™ modular and stylish sports frame system. "The Hogies are an incredibly sturdy yet lightweight frame and is an ideal complement to our prismatics", states Mr. Tholin. The Hogies feature a patented magnetic system that attaches the optics, splash shield and nosepad to the frame. There are 10 color choices available. Dissimilar to most prismatic loupes, the PeriOptix prismatic loupes utilize the patented Optilock technology that provides for a simple one knob adjustment of the loupes to accurately align both loupe barrels to the user's eyes. Once adjusted, the alignment is locked and no further adjustment will be required.
"In addition, our Solaris LED headlight will be a perfect complement to these high power optics", reports Mr. Tholin. "The Solaris is the brightest portable headlight available on the market and has been rated the number one LED by two independent testing agencies. We will be offering a special combination price for customers purchasing both our prismatics and the Solaris headlight at the show."
