Did you know?
There are a great variety of lighting systems sold today. The intensity of illumination systems varies from less than 10’000 Lux to over 200’000 Lux, which is even more intense than the sunlight on a clear summer day. Because the reflectivity of anatomical objects varies greatly, so should light intensity. The intensity of top surgical lights is about 200 times brighter than your office light.
Benefits of Integrated Surgical Solutions Headlighs are:
(For dental application it should be noted that maximum brightness is an important factor; but most available LED headlights are bright enough for dental use.)
Yes, our properly designed LED lights are safe for our vision. Poorly designed LED lights and poorly constructed instruments (such as inexpensive loupes) will hurt our eyes.
The LEDs used in Illumination headlights last approximately 50,000 hours—that’s 25 years of illumination if the headlight is used 8 hours a day. Wow.
LED illumination will not degrade with time. LEDs are light emitting diodes, solid-state chips releasing energy in the form of photons, or light. Illumination from LED chips will not degrade with time and will last upwards of 50,000 hours. The light emitted from LEDs is pure white, bright, cool light and the system is digital–it is either 100% on or off. Halogen and xenon degrade in luminosity over time due to bulb degradation and fiber optic cable breakage. All fiber optic xenon and halogen system emit infrared heat.
Compared to purchasing a 300-watt xenon fiber optic system and factoring in the approximately $1,000 annual costs for bulb and cable replacement costs, LED surgical headlights saving can be conservatively estimated at approximately $3,000 to $5,000 in the first year.
Brightness can be measured in Lumen, Lux, and foot candle.
Yes. For example Enova headlights can be used with loupes mounted on eye-glass frames. They support magnifications up to 5 times. Enova’s Model XLT-125 features extra-long lamp adjustment brackets allowing for co-axial alignment with loupes.

Surgical headlights should be wiped down with 70% isopropyl alcohol or similar disinfectant after each use.

The purpose of Surgical Loupes is to enhance or magnify an image to insure the highest quality results in surgical procedures. We take our responsibility to surgeons and their patients seriously. Loupes are designed to meet specific magnification requirements and working distances. To find a “Working Distance Guide“, please click here.
How to clip the light to the loupes:
Switching a Frame: (Rose Loupe example)
Adjusting your loupes:
Loupes are precision instruments, and care must be taken when handling and cleaning the instrument. All Loupes have lens coatings on the optics to enhance optical performance, and thus need to be cared for properly.
1. First to remove gross debris, spray the loupes with a can of compressed air.
2. Then disinfect the loupes.
3. Finally, clean the lenses.
4. Finally, if you have any additional questions about cleaning your loupes, feel-free to contact our customer service department.
WARNING! DO NOT:
THESE ACTIVITIES WILL VOID YOUR LOUPE'S WARRANTY
We have adapters for most combinations but if you want to combine different brands of loupes, lights and cameras, please contact us to make sure we have the correct adapter for you.
Integrated Surgical Solutions offers the right link (clip) to mount our cameras to almost all Loupe brands! Just let us know what Loupe you have when you order and we include the correct adapter for you.
No worries, contact us at www.Integratedsurgicalsolutions.com and give us the make & model of your loupes you want the HD camera to be attached to. With the right clip removing and re-attaching the camera from one set of Loups to another is a matter of seconds.
