A digital ophthalmic microscope is a modification of a conventional optical microscope that outputs an image to a monitor using optics and a digital camera, occasionally using computer software.
Unlike an optical microscope, which allows for direct observation of the sample through an eyepiece, a digital microscope frequently has its own built-in LED light source. The entire system is built for the monitor image since the image is concentrated on the digital circuit. The human eye’s optics are not included.
Digital microscopes range in price from basic USB models that are often affordable to high-end industrial models that cost tens of thousands of dollars. Low-cost commercial microscopes frequently lack illumination optics and resemble webcams with a macro lens. A digital camera can be added to an optical microscope.
Magnification is one of the main distinctions between a stereo microscope and a digital microscope. The magnification of a stereo microscope is calculated by multiplying the eyepiece magnification by the objective magnification. This method cannot determine the magnification because the digital microscope lacks an eyepiece.
Instead, the size of the sample reproduced on a 15″ display was initially used to calculate the magnification for a digital microscope.
The physical size of the camera chip utilized has not changed despite changes in monitor sizes. Because of this, regardless of the size of the monitor being utilized, magnification numbers and field of view remain the same as in that initial definition.
An optical microscope and a digital microscope typically have magnification differences of roughly 40%. As a result, a stereomicroscope’s magnification number is typically 40% lower than a digital microscope’s.
The Global Digital ophthalmic microscope market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The ARTEVO 800, the first digital ophthalmic microscope for ocular surgery, will be unveiled by ZEISS. The ARTEVO 800, which was developed with surgeons for surgeons, is going to change the future of surgical care by revolutionizing visualization, information, comfort, and workflow in the operating room.
“With ARTEVO 800 we are entering a new era of ophthalmic visualization for more certainty in surgery by providing the best resolution for customers.
