Advantages of the new LED and Li-ion technology include longer battery life and increased instrument reliability. Consistent light output of bright, white LEDs improves examination and ease of diagnosis benefiting both physician and patient.

Lamps with LED technology and 5,500 Kelvin have a lifetime of at least 20,000 hours, compared to 20-30 hours with halogen and xenon alternatives. ri-scope® L combines this energy efficient LED technology with a long lasting lithium-ion battery for sustained high-power performance and significant cost savings.

All ri-scope® L ophthalmoscopes have a modular design featuring high-performance optics with aspherical condenser glass lenses and reduced reflection. All three versions L1, L2 and L3, are available with correction lenses with up to 89 diopter values. Using Gullstrand's principle, reflexes from the cornea and iris are avoided by separating the observational and illuminating light beams.

All ri-scope® L ophthalmoscope heads are dust-proof, with an easy to operate aperture hand-wheel for apertures and filters.
