Designed for ease and built for longevity

Scan Optics made a real impact in the market as the first company to develop a robust, fully portable optical microscope back in 1987. This innovation was a game changer as it meant that surgeons could now travel, fully equipped to remote communities to provide lifechanging ophthalmic surgeries.  Lightweight and easy to set up, Scan Optics portable microscopes quickly became a market leader due to the advanced surgical quality imaging and ease of use.  With many of our ophthalmic microscopes in service, in the field for over 20 years you can be assured that when you invest in a Scan Optics product it’s been built to last a lifetime.

Clarity and vision

Light and magnification are the two crucial elements needed for ophthalmic surgery.  All Scan Optics products are hand crafted to exacting quality standards and built with performance and clarity in mind.  All our microscopes use LED technology for a continual light source and our lenses, prisms and filters are carefully selected to provide surgeons with crystal clear imagery to assist in the early detection of abnormal pathology.  With a choice of manual or automatic focus and zoom, handsfree operation and video capture, Scan Optics have all your ophthalmic imaging needs covered.

Flexible power source, long-life & climate proof

As the only microscopes on the market with a dual power source (mains or 12v battery), you can rely on our microscopes to work in areas others can’t.   No need to worry about power cuts or unstable power supplies our microscopes are built for optimal performance even in the remotest of locations.

We like to think that we have thought of everything and our durable, portable microscopes come with built in moisture and mould management system, so no matter what the level of humidity you can depend on your Scan Optics microscope to give you the crystal clear images you need to get the job done!
