Aspectus UK to showcase Science Based Health Range.

Stand A17

Aspectus U.K. Limited is delighted to be showcasing the ScienceBased Health range of nutraceuticals at Optrafair 2018!

ScienceBased Health (SBH) develops evidence-based nutraceuticals specialised in eye health.



The company was founded in 1997 by a group of forward-thinking ophthalmologists and optometrists who discovered an overwhelming level of consumer interest in wellness and prevention, a great deal of confusion in the marketplace, and increasing clinical evidence supporting the role of nutrition in promoting good health and well-being.

As many were looking to their doctors for guidance in the area of prevention and wellness, SBH focused on supporting eyecare practitioners with credible information and scientifically sound nutritional products that they confidently recommend to their patients.



Since its founding, SBH has been committed to enhancing the level of patient care through product innovation, leadership, education and support.

These superb quality supplements have been developed specifically for conditions such as:

Dry Eye (HydroEye),
Macular Degeneration (MacularProtect Complete AREDS2,
MacularProtect AREDS2 and MacularProtect Complete AREDS2 Drink Mix),
Glaucoma (Optic Nerve Formula)
General Eye health (DiaVis, OcularEssentials, OcularProtect, OmegaAdvance).

Come and visit us at stand A17
to discover for yourself, just how this extensive range of nutraceuticals can help your patients and your practice!

Optos products will help put your patients in the picture at Optrafair 2018



Being able to offer your patients a comprehensive eye examination using state-of-the-art technology can add huge value to your optometry business, and leading supplier Optos is looking forward to showcasing the benefits of its Daytona plus machine at this year’s Optrafair.

The industry-leading model offers high-resolution ultra-wide field retinal imaging of more than 80% or 200 degrees of the retina in a single capture.

Visitors to Optrafair will be able to see at first hand the quality of the images produced and will be able to discuss its impact on practices up and down the country.

A range of ‘meet the expert’ sessions will take place, giving delegates an opportunity to hear from optometrists and practice managers who will give their advice on how to maximise the technology and use it in an everyday setting.

Ebru Hamilton, international marketing manager for Optos, said: “Optometrists want to hear from other optometrists, so that’s what we’re doing. The ‘Meet the Experts’ sessions will allow visitors to hear from their peers who have taken the decision to invest in a ultra-widefield technology and discover what a difference it has made to both their patients and their business.

“Optrafair is always a key event for us. It has an exceptional reputation and it’s one of our busiest weekends of the year. The show brings together a wide range of exhibitors and delegates and you know the people there are there to buy. Everyone we speak to is a potential customer.

“We will be taking the full team down to the NEC and we will be previewing the very latest updates to our review software, showing off a number of new features to make the whole 200 degree retinal imaging experience even better for our customers.

“Peer review sessions will be held on the stand over the weekend and we will have a real focus on education with a number of CET sessions.

“Buying a Daytona plus device is a big leap of faith so we want to give our potential customers the confidence they need to make that call. We will offer sessions on how to integrate the technology into your practice, resources to help you evaluate and get second opinions on pathology, staff training, as well advice on how to market the technology to patients.”

Easyscan demonstrate why SLO scanning is a leap forward from outdated white light photography.

Stand C15

Easyscan SLOEasyscan had a very successful reception to the Live Demonstrations of the SLO Retinal Imaging Scanner providing tomographic imagery on the Grafton Stand who distribute in the UK.

Easyscan received orders on each day for their retinal imager and it is evident that like the US and European markets there has finally been an understanding that SLO confocal technology, fast and accurate through undilated eyes is a step change from white light fundus photography of old providing so much more retinal layer detail and yet simple to use on everyone screening.

Pictured by the Easyscan is Grafton’s MD, Brian Bowles who said

“The EasyScan SLO offers significant benefits for the smart practice owner. Our visitors are positively surprised by the high contrast images taken here at the booth without dilation!”

In their live demos on a one to one basis they even found an unknown retinal defect. Simple, inform customer and send images to their smart phone for them to self-refer on their return.
