From its inception in 1932 Topcon has pioneered the world in the superior manufacture of optical systems and lenses. From mydriatic to non mydriatic, the TRC (Topcon retinal camera) series has, for many years, been the workhorse in the NHS and primary care for superior, high quality fundus photography. That high quality and advanced technology continues in the modern world of OCT imaging, an area now also dominated by Topcon but still with its roots in the past with its combination of true colour fundus photography. 

Now as we move forwards into the next era of OCT with swept source technology, Topcon once again lead the way with the Triton OCT. Still the world's only true colour camera with posterior and anterior swept source OCT. Launched in 2015, the Triton now comes as standard with OCTA (OCT angiography) and options for fluorescein angiography and auto fluorescence, all with the same machine. The future of diagnosis lies in multi modal imaging which is exactly what the Triton provides.
