Marco has redefined slit lamp imaging by combining an intra-optics beam-splitter/camera adapter with the tremendous computing and imaging power of Apple® technology. Together, they create a highly sophisticated imaging system that emphasizes image quality, simplicity, and efficiency.

The iON Imaging System cuts out the bulky components (digital camera, adapter, computer, monitor, multiple cables, keyboard, mouse, etc.) of a traditional photo slit lamp. The sleek, all-in-one device makes it easier than ever to capture, diagnose, integrate, and educate.

Plus, the iON is compatible with most parallel style slit lamps from many of the top manufacturers on the market. This modular device is so convenient and affordable that you’ll want one for every exam room. Slit lamp and iPhone sold separately.
