Orascoptic has launched the HDL 2.5x, a lightweight, high-definition (HD) loupe with microsized optics.
The field depth of the HDL rivals that of the Orascoptic HiResTM 2.5x loupe, yet the optical design is 25% smaller than its predecessor, according to the company.
The HDL design leverages an elongated bezel to deliver steep declination angles for improved ergonomics. Each loupe also offers HD resolution, creating an enhanced visual acuity for the clinician, Orascoptic noted.
The new loupe has a generous field-of-view, so clinicians are able to easily transition instruments into the viewing field, which may help to reduce examination and procedural times, the company said. The compact size of the HDL 2.5x also provides significant viewing space above the telescope, making it easier to read charts and consult with patients without having to remove the loupe.
The HDL 2.5x features a clean brushed metallic finish and exceptionally small profile. The loupe is available on all Orascoptic frame models and can be configured as a through-the-lens (TTL) or a flip-up that employs a new advanced ergonomic hinge.
The HDL 2.5x will debut at next week's California Dental Association (CDA Presents meeting in Anaheim, CA.
