WAYNE, Pa., April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Escalon® Medical Corp. (Nasdaq:
ESMC) today announced its Sonomed Escalon™ group will be introducing its new
VuMax™ HDB B-scan system at the Annual Meeting of the American Society of
Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ASCRS) in San Francisco, CA April 20-23,
2013. The VuMax™ HDB will become part of the expanded VuMax™ line of
high-resolution ophthalmic ultrasound systems, already known for outstanding
UBM imaging.

"The VuMax™ HDB adds to Sonomed Escalon's repertoire of ophthalmic ultrasound
systems and specifically addresses the needs of retinal and certain other
practices for high-resolution B-scan imaging of the posterior segment of the
eye," noted Barry Durante, Sonomed Escalon's President. "Based upon clinical
feedback received thus far, we believe the B-scan image quality will clearly
set this system apart and enable Sonomed Escalon to serve a previously
untapped market."
