Investing in the UK’s first ultra-wide field camera
30 January 2020
Moorfields Eye Charity were delighted to join Moorfields Eye Hospital colleagues in an unveiling ceremony to celebrate our new Zeiss Clarus Ultra-Wide Field camera, the first of its kind in a UK hospital.
The purchase of this advanced piece of imaging equipment was made possible through the generous donations from the 2017 Moorfields Eye Charity ‘Winter Appeal’, impressively raising over £90,000.
The camera is particularly advanced as it provides a much wider field of view of the retina. This allows clinicians to see not just the centre of the retina but also the periphery with outstanding clarity.
It also shows colours with greater accuracy, which is important for diagnosing, monitoring and treating many eye diseases.
Moorfields Eye Charity chief executive Robert Dufton said:
We were delighted to mark this special occasion - it demonstrates the direct impact that generous donations have on patient care and experience, as well as providing opportunities for vital research. We would like to thank our supporters for responding to our appeal and making this happen.
