Multiple Scan Patterns Vixi has 22 preprogrammed scan patterns to allow treatment of varying retinal pathologies. Equal Space Between Spots in All Directions
The equal space pattern maintains space between spots allowing for denser photocoagulation than the square pattern. Auto Forward Once photocoagulation is completed in one region, the auto forward function automatically positions the scan pattern to the next region of treatment, allowing the surgeon to concentrate on adjusting focus.
The repeat mode with the auto forward function enables consecutive regions to undergo photocoagulation on a pre- programmed path by continuously depressing the foot switch.
The treatment area can be confirmed by selecting the “Pos” (Position) button which displays each corner of the emission area on the patient’s eye with the aiming light.
