To get the most from our site, please make sure you have Adobe Flash installed. Flash is the #1 Animation and A/V content delivery plugin on the Internet. It is safe and easy to install.
Unfortunately for those that have purchased Apple products like the iPad and iPhone, Apple has decided not to support Adobe Flash, which is a standard and common animation-audio/video technology. These Apple products have also been excluded from a wealth of content on major sites, such as YouTube, etc
The Apple forums are filled with requests for Flash, but Apple has not complied. Every other tablet manufacturer on the market has chosen to support Flash. Despite the fact that HTML5 is filled with multimedia and animation capabilities, it does not match the extent of the capabilities in Adobe Flash.
As a developer, my advice is that people should contact Apple and demand Flash support, leaving the choice for design and use in the hands of Internet users. Aside from this, why not purchase one of the many alternate tablets on the market that are as good, if not better than the iPad. The manufacturers of these devices have chosen to offer Flash support, as well as HTML5, so that their customers are not crippled in their enjoyment of the web.
Flash is the #1 Animation and A/V content delivery plugin on the Internet. It has been a standard plug-in with browsers for years. If, for some reason, your browser is not equipped with Flash, it is safe and easy to install.

Originally, surgical techniques for glaucoma treatment were invasive and destructive, running the risk of creating any number of complications. In the late 1980’s, Dr. Martin Uram conceived of a surgical approach that would target the fluid-producing ciliary processes from the interior of the eye, thus protecting the surrounding tissue often unnecessarily destroyed by other techniques. These organs had never before been viewed in a live eye. Approaching them previously, required damaging the external eye wall. Approaching them internally would mean greater control and quicker recovery.
This pioneering technique also required a new technology. So, Dr. Uram designed a microendoscope that, for the first time, combined laser, light and optical fibers into one tiny probe. The endoscope allowed a surgeon to view and laser through only a few small incisions, guiding the procedure from an external monitor. Consequently, this technique has become one of the safest, simplest and least complicated approaches to glaucoma management.
The procedure came to be known as Endoscopic Cyclophotocoagulation or ECP. For the past 15 years, it has been tested and perfected. Thousands of cases have proven its value. Recently, one of the longest case studies on the effectiveness of ECP has been completed by Dr. Stanley J. Berke. There is no safer or more effective surgery for glaucoma.
In 1992, Endo Optiks was founded with the goal of developing and manufacturing the equipment that would make ECP a reality for the modern ophthalmologist. Our flagship model, the Microprobe™ was launched in the early 90’s. This all-in-one unit combined a laser, a video monitor and recording device along with our patented laser-endoscope. Eventually, the Microprobe™ gave way to the E2™ and E4™, smaller, more compact units that can be paired with various options for a customized surgical solution.
The probes themselves have also transformed over the years, with ever-increasing video quality and laser delivery. New shapes like curved and angled scopes have proven their own worth. Endo Optiks has recently rolled out autoclavable endoscopes, increasing the lifespan of our customers investment.
While pioneering this new technique, we have been applying our technology to other applications, such as vitro-retinal surgery and laser DCR. The laser-microendoscope is opening pathways to areas previously unreachable.
Endo Optiks was founded in 1991 by Dr. Martin Uram, a retinal specialist in Little Silver, New Jersey when he realized the need for a minimally invasive technology that could combine imaging and treatment through a single incision. The MicroProbe integrated laser endoscopy system and 20 gauge, triple function laser microendoscopes (illumination, video image and laser) were developed.
In 1994, Endo Optiks received the Thomas Alva Edison patent award for the “Laser Video Endoscope”.
Endo Optiks is headquartered in Little Silver, New Jersey where manufacturing, engineering, development and final assembly and testing is performed.
Now, the world leader in microendoscopy, Endo Optiks is the sole manufacturer of the E2 combined laser and endoscopy system and the E4 endoscopy system.
