The system continues to offer the same benefits to the market as its predecessor, the Cobalt System:
• Compact footprint
• Cold mist dry cutting technology
• Automatic calibration
• Ease of maintenance
• Precision frameless spindle motor assembly
• Linear motor y-axis

“The Cobalt Surfacing System was introduced in 2018 and over the years we saw an opportunity to design an even better platform which we have now delivered in the form of the NEXUS system,” stated Coburn Technologies, Inc. President, Alex Incera. “This result was years in the making to ensure we could deliver an even higher performance system.”

HTG-1 Full Corneal Topography System and HT-5000 Applanation Tonometer by Huvitz | Coburn Technologies, Inc.Coburn is also announcing the addition of two Huvitz products to their extensive line of ophthalmic diagnostic technology. The HT-5000 Applanation Tonometer and the HTG-1 Full Corneal Topography System.

The Huvitz HT-5000 Applanation Tonometer is an easy, fast, and convenient device that quickly measures eye pressure. It is the only applanation tonometer on the market that processes IOP calculation virtually in real time, displays results digitally, and has a zero-delay wakeup time. Calibration is simple with readings displayed more sensitively to the user’s control. HT-5000 is also designed for the patient and doctor’s comfort, including a slanted display to match the angle of the user’s view for more comfortable observation, and a wide grip knob for easier adjustment of measuring prism.

The HTG-1 Full Corneal Topography System is a specialized solution for comprehensive corneal topography analysis, offering the most reliable and precise corneal information. This high-accuracy corneal data supports diagnosis and monitoring of various corneal conditions, refractive power variations, irregular astigmatism, keratoconus, and more. HTG-1 measures the curvature, pupil, and corneal aberration data which are then presented in various maps and graphs. These results are dependable in assessing refractive status and guiding cataract surgery.

“As the exclusive distributor of Huvitz in the United States, making the decision to offer the tonometer and topographer to our customers was an easy decision,” stated Wayne Labrecque, Vice President of Sales at Coburn Technologies. “After 13 years as partners, we have seen the difference Huvitz diagnostic tools can make to an eyecare practice. Huvitz delivers reliable, efficient, precise, affordable options to outfit an entire exam lane and pre-testing system, and our long history working together is a testament to that.”

The NEXUS Digital Surfacing Platform and Huvitz Tonometer and Topographer will be on display for the first time at the Coburn Technologies booth F2435 at Vision Expo East at the Jacob Javits Convention Center from March 15-17. Coburn encourages attendees to stop by and get a first look at these exciting new products. Coburn will also hold another 70th anniversary celebration in their booth from 5:00-7:00pm on the first day of the show, March 15th. Refreshments will be served, and attendees have the chance to enter a raffle for several exciting prizes.
