Lighter than the previous model, the SL-19 weighs 620g and provides easy and versatile operation with a choice of 10x and 16x magnifications and 3 slit widths* (0.1mm, 0.2mm, 0.8mm). The SL-19 has a variable controlled LED light source from 200 to 20,000 Lux and has a 3-step background light as well as a 3-step blue illumination light. The LED light source provides a much whiter light than ordinary halogen light sources found on traditional instruments. The SL-19 is compact and portable making it ideal for field evaluations, pediatrics, and patients not able to be imaged by a traditional slit lamp. The SL-19 is especially useful in emergency rooms where patient mobility is a challenge, or when switching between consultancy rooms is necessary. Offering cordless operation, the SL-19 is powered by (3) AA rechargeable or dry cell batteries to provide long lasting, continuous operation of the bright LED lamp.
