AAO Annual Meeting attendees will have the opportunity to see the
Company's full line of integrated Eye Care solutions including:
CX-1 Hybrid Digital Mydriatic/Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera: The
CX-1 Camera is a fully digital hybrid retinal camera system. Being a
hybrid system, the camera offers the flexibility of being used as a
mydriatic camera, or as a non-mydriatic camera. Users may take Color,
Red-Free, Cobalt (News - Alert), Fundus Autofluorescence images or perform a
Fluorescein Angiography study in either of the camera modes. The CX-1
Camera integrates a dedicated Canon EOS digital SLR camera for retina
with a high sensitivity CMOS image sensor that achieves ultra-high
resolution images with superb detail, contrast and color fidelity. The
built-in non-mydriatic mode not only helps saves time and resources,
but also makes the diagnostic procedure more comfortable for patients
with pupils smaller than 3.8 mm.
CF-1 Digital Mydriatic Retinal Camera: The CF-1 Mydratic
Camera is a versatile 50° retinal camera with three color modes:
Fluorescein Angiography, Color, and Red-Free. The camera can take full
field images with a pupil diameter as small as Ø 5.2mm in mydriatic
mode and down to Ø 4.3mm in SP Mode using an 18 megapixel Canon EOS
60D digital camera.
CR-2 PLUS AF Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera: The Canon
CR-2 PLUS AF Digital Retinal Camera is designed to help you
consistently capture and analyze truly outstanding images-quickly,
efficiently, and automatically. Designed for use with a dedicated
Canon EOS digital SLR camera for retina, advanced CMOS image-capture
technology and special image processing for ophthalmic imaging, the
CR-2 PLUS AF camera provides advanced features specifically designed
to enhance, capture and analyze important fundus images. The camera
comes ready for Color and Fundus Autofluorescence imaging and when
coupled with the imageSPECTRUM software digital filters such as Red,
Green, and Blue can be applied to images. The camera also comes with
an Anterior Segment mode for added functionality.
CR-2 Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera: The CR-2 Camera is
an extremely compact digital non-mydriatic retinal camera with 45°
field angle. The camera uses a customized 18 megapixel digital camera
incorporating Canon EOS technology and special image processing for
ophthalmic imaging. Special digital RGB filters from imageSPECTRUM can
be used to provide an enhanced view of the retina at the RFL, ganglion
and choroid. White LED lamp, instead of a flash tube lamp, provides
for an extremely soft, patient-friendly flash and lasts approximately
twice as long as a Xenon tube, which can help to reduce maintenance
RK-F2 Full Auto Ref-Keratometer: Using the Full Auto mode, the
RK-F2 refractor and keratometer automatically aligns and acquires a
reading for one eye and then continues to the opposite eye to perform
the same function-all with one touch of a button. The RK-F2 has a
compact footprint that is coupled with an omnidirectional joystick,
5.7 inch color LCD monitor, and built-in printer. The RK-F2 helps
accelerate the exam process by providing extremely fast and accurate
measurements, making it an ideal complement to the ophthalmic suite.
It also has a wide measurement range, does peripheral corneal
measurements and can handle small pupils easily.
TX-20 Full Auto Tonometer: The TX-20 is a fully automatic,
non-contact tonometer that uses a soft puff of air to help quickly and
accurately provide sequential eye readings at the touch of one button.
Visual reliability indicators, motorized joystick, built-in printer,
LAN and RS-232C output are all included in a small compact design that
can quickly become an indispensable device for any office.
PTS 1000 Automated Perimeter: The PTS 1000 Automated Perimeter
is a modern diagnostic instrument that provides quick and precise
screening and thresholding for just about all automated perimetry
needs. The PTS 1000 offers static and kinetic stimuli with standard
Goldmann illumination, stimuli sizes and stimuli colors used in
perimetry. A wide range of strategies and analysis tools is combined
with an intuitive interface to give ophthalmologists a powerful and
affordable diagnostic tool.
