Simply stated, IBEX’s LED driven 4300K color temperature breaks the barriers of conventional slit lamp observation. The homogeneous radiant white light delivers a host of observation gains including enhanced tissue fluorescence, better tissue differentiation, increased depth of field and shadow reduction – the latter is especially useful during increasingly popular indirect illumination.
Not familiar with color temperature? Color temperature is a characteristic of visible light, usually warm (yellowish), daylight (white) or cool (bluish). It’s measured in degrees of Kelvin (°K). During the past ten years the 3500K-4500K range has evolved as the color temperature of choice in today’s high-end operating microscopes and modern surgical suites for good reason: It creates superb contrast and enables surgeons to better differentiate tissue.
