Topcon Healthcare Exceeds 20,000 Maestro OCTs Sold Worldwide
Milestone Reflects the Outstanding Quality of Topcon Products and the Market Needs for a Fully Automated OCT Solution
OAKLAND, NJ, OCTOBER 27, 2023 – Topcon Healthcare, a leading provider of medical devices and software solutions including advanced multi-modal imaging, vendor-inclusive data management, and ground-breaking remote diagnostic technology for the global eye care community, announced today that it has surpassed 20,000 units of sale globally of its Maestro Robotic OCT.
Introduced in 2012, the original 3D OCT-1 Maestro was the first of its kind to combine a high-quality OCT and color fundus imaging device with a fully automated capture procedure. The advanced clinical features of the Maestro, including the 3D OCT wide scan and detailed analysis reports, were packaged in an exceptionally easy-to-use instrument with a space-saving design, making it a “game-changer” for the industry and allowing eye care specialists from around the globe to quickly adopt the Maestro into their practice.
In 2016, the Maestro received FDA Clearance in the U.S., and in 2019, the Maestro2 was introduced, which added follow-up scanning and OCT Angiography¹ for certain markets. As the company has surpassed the sale of the 20,000th Maestro OCT globally, the Maestro business model, which optimizes workflow and enhances the patient experience without compromising on clinical utility, has proven to be an enormous success.
“As a physician starting a solo private practice, I was very mindful of the equipment that I needed to purchase,” says Deepa Reddy, MD, of Fairfield Medical Center in Lancaster, OH, who purchased the 20,000th Maestro, “After seeing a demonstration of the Maestro2, it quickly became apparent that this was the OCT for me. The multimodal functionality and ability to capture high-quality images, all with an automated single touch, made this the obvious choice for me. It not only impressed me, but more importantly, impressed my technicians.”
The continued success of the Maestro can be attributed to its groundbreaking features combined with the world-class quality of Topcon’s manufacturing. It is also a testament to Topcon’s continued commitment to improving patients’ lives and remaining on the forefront of technological innovation in eye care by empowering providers with advanced imaging, intelligent data, and cutting-edge robotics.
