August 28, 2020

OAKLAND, N.J. — Topcon Healthcare, provider of medical devices and software solutions for the global eye care community, announced today that it has launched its new Aladdin-M instrument to the U.S. market. Aladdin-M combines corneal topography, pupillometry, and optical biometry to enable objective measurement of corneal curvature, pupil dynamics, and axial length metrics.

The versatile, all-in-one Aladdin-M provides the critical tools needed to support myopia management while also incorporating features for keratoconus screening and contact lens fitting. Aladdin-M’s exclusive software enables documentation of axial length measurements to identify risk factors and track changes in Rx and axial length measurements over time to show progression and response to treatment. The compact instrument offers rapid capture to ensure patient satisfaction.

“Aladdin-M is ideally suited to help eye care professionals combat the growing crisis of myopia. Its versatility and ease of use allow eye care professionals to easily build a myopia service within their practice, educate patients on the implications of myopia, manage their patients’ conditions, and grow their service offerings,” said John Trefethen, Global VP of Marketing & Product Design for Topcon Healthcare.

Topcon is debuting the Aladdin-M device at the Vision Source Exchange On-Demand meeting, August 27-29.
