Learn More about Movu


Movu is a business unit of Santec Corporation, a leading Japanese manufacturer of innovative lasers and optical components for fiber-optic telecommunications, sensing, medical and metrology markets, with advanced expertise in SS-OCT and tunable lasers. Movu has incorporated the latest SS-OCT technology into its biometer, ARGOS, improving speed and accuracy in biometric measurements. As biometry is an essential step to accurate IOL power selection, the ARGOS provides the repeatability and the OCT image confirmation for confident measurements, reducing errors and refractive surprises. Outperforming competitors and significantly improving dense cataract measurement capabilities, ARGOS has demonstrated superior success rates, speed and accuracy. ARGOS with SS-OCT technology is the leader in non-contact biometry, with the latest power formulas, a built-in toric calculator, enhanced retinal visualization for increased sensitivity, and DICOM connectivity.

Movu received FDA 510(k) clearance to market ARGOS in October, 2015.
