DIMO Strengthens Durdans Hospital’s Eye Care Unit with ZEISS OPMI Lumera 700

Friday, June 12th, 2020

Continuing its journey of introducing latest technologies to the local healthcare sector, DIMO Medical
Engineering team successfully completed installation of world-class ZEISS OPMI Lumera 700 surgical
microscope at Durdans Hospital Colombo, to further strengthen the facilities at the eye care unit of the
hospital.

ZEISS OPMI Lumera 700 is a surgical microscope used to enhance the capabilities of an ophthalmology
department. It is specially manufactured to use in cataract and retinal surgeries and enables clearer
visualization and thereby delivers excellent clinical outcomes. With this latest surgical microscope,
medical practitioners can experience superb clarity and gain critical insights during procedures, enabling
them to make well-informed decisions.

Surgical microscopes need to constantly evolve to keep abreast of innovations in surgical techniques,
better meet patient expectations and lower the costs of running an operating theatre. The ZEISS OPMI
Lumera 700, with its customized integration, provides the best solution for these concerns. It combines
a high-quality basic configuration with extensive options providing doctors with a versatile system and
an optimized toolkit.

Wijith Pushpawela, Executive Director of DIMO stated "Now Sri Lanka can experience outstanding
treatments with one of the most advanced ophthalmic technologies in the world at Durdans Hospital,
Colombo. In the field of medical engineering, the technology constantly evolves and it is imperative to
introduce latest technologies to the healthcare sector. DIMO is always in the forefront of bringing world-
class technological solutions to Sri Lanka and is proud to connect Durdans Hospital with the latest
medical engineering technologies to uplift the quality of treatments provided to all Sri Lankans."
Discussing the landmark achievement, Director – Medical Services at Durdans Hospital, Dr. Harsha
Baranage stated that the ophthalmology centre of excellence at Durdans Hospital is constantly working
to push the frontiers of precision-based care. “We invest in the best technology to help the world-
renowned surgeons working at our centre achieve the best possible health outcomes,” he said.
Elaborating on the special features of the microscope, he said that it had features such as integrated
recording, Keratoscope attachment and an integrated monitor that are presently unavailable in other
competitive surgical microscopes in the country.

With the Stereo Coaxial Illumination (SCI) for constant brilliance and brightness, every detail of the
patient’s eye is visible to the doctor. The RESIGHT® fundus viewing system seamlessly integrates into the
OPMI Lumera 700 and provides an unparalleled depth of field and edge-to-edge clarity. An integrated
Keratoscope visualizes corneal astigmatism without the need to interrupt the procedure and attach an
accessory. With cables and optional functions being integrated into the system and perfect interaction
of RESIGHT fundus viewing systems, Invertertube® E and an integrated video camera, it provides
convenience and accuracy in surgeries.
