Topcon Introduces the MC-4S, A Compact Mirror Chart
Product: Topcon MC-4S 3D Mirror Chart
Top Line: The new MC-4S allows eyecare professionals to maximize their exam space. It simulates a full 20 ft. lane in a 2’-5’ range, allowing for use in very small refraction areas. The MC-4S features a high resolution, polarized LCD display that includes all common visual acuity charts as well as the ability to show 3D movies or to show the effects of polarization on a patient’s glasses. The MC-4S can be linked to Topcon’s CV-5000S vision tester and EXAM-5000 refraction system through the KB-50 one-dial controller.
Close Up: Besides the well-known Landolt-rings and red/green charts, the MC-4S also provides original motion “active charts” that are useful for checking stereo-vision, astigmatism, heterophoria, etc.

Eschenbach Offers Super Bright LED Lamp Magnifier
Product: Vario LED Lamp Magnifier (#2781)
Top Line: Eschenbach’s new Vario LED Lamp Magnifier (#2781) combines excellent optics, maximum flexibility and bright illumination. The large, 76mm lens provides 6D (2.5x) of magnification and offers a nearly distortion-free image. The patented cera-tec coating on the lens minimizes scratching by over 50 percent, thereby extending the life of the product. The lens is surrounded by a ring of 63 SMD LEDs which produce up to 6,000lx of brightness. Two settings can be selected—full shadow-free illumination with the entire ring illuminated, or segment illumination with about half of the LEDs illuminated which produce a beam of light.
Close Up: The Vario LED Lamp Magnifier features an ergonomically shaped handle and a flexible gooseneck arm that allows the lens to tilt in many directions ensuring an easy and precise adjustment of the magnifier to suit individual requirements. The lamp has a clamp at its base that attaches to any table up to about 60mm (2.4”) in thickness. The lamp is designed to use a low level of energy consumption—only five watts.
Vital Stats: Eschenbach’s new Vario LED Lamp Magnifier allows the user to perform hands-free detailed tasks, and is particularly useful when flexibility is needed to view text or objects. Due to its bright illumination, it can also be used as a stand-alone lamp as well.
