Our suppliers:




Scan Optics has been manufacturing ophthalmic equipment in Australia since 1987. With a mission to assist in reducing preventable blindness throughout the world, Scan Optics creates fully-portable optical microscopes made from sturdy and lightweight materials.

Located in Thebarton, Adelaide, Scan Optics prides itself on quality and state-of-the-art design. We’re committed to customer satisfaction and employ internationally qualified optical and mechanical engineers who manage the entire life-cycle of our products.

Innovation drives our business and we continuously optimise existing products as well as developing new microscopes that address customer needs. In 2016, we launched a lightweight head mount Indirect Ophthalmoscope that weighed only 325gsm, which has been described by some customers as very comfortable to wear for extended periods and easy to use.

Our microscopes are manufactured from stainless steel, aluminium, non-ferrous metals and various non-corrosive plastics. They can be operated from mains power, from a generator, or from a 12V battery cable. This allows the flexibility to use our equipment in mobile clinics, hospitals or offices. Our microscopes are fitted with replaceable anti-mould pellets that provide three years protection under normal conditions. In addition, all our products have easy and low-cost general maintenance – even in remote locations.

Scan Optics is quality certified to the International Organisation of Standardisation (ISO) standard 9001, which includes product design as well as manufacturing, customer service and company administration. Our equipment is consistently reliable and is warranted to be free from material defects at the time of purchase.

Over 30 years of service, Scan Optics has developed a loyal customer base. We value communication and consider all feedback during our design and improvement process.
