Retinal camera

A non-mydriatic camera combining both standard and stereo retinal imaging

An advanced retinal camera that provides both standard 2D and stereo 3D images whilst maintaining the Kowa traditions of high quality and ease of use. The exclusive optical design combined with the high resolution Nikon® digital camera back delivers extremely detailed images. In 2D mode the camera operates like a standard 45° non-mydriatic camera. The small pupil option enables photography with a pupil size above ø3.5mm. Mosaic photography is a further option using the 9-point fi xation mode. In 3D mode the camera captures a

20°x 27° fi eld of view as a stereo image in one shot. This may be viewed using prism glasses or by using a 3D monitor.

camera. Examine the optic nerve quickly, easily and in far more detail than is possible from a standard 2-dimensional image. This simple to use system provides a detailed quantitative display of optic disc parameters, including the vertical cup to disc ratio, neuro-retinal rim area and rim to disc area along with many others. The rim width in various locations can be compared using the polar coordinates display whilst a disc damage likelihood scale gives a simple numerical estimate of the possibility of glaucomatous damage to the optic nerve.

AP-7000

NEW

Automated perimeter for both static and kinetic perimetry

Next generation perimeter with the gold standard threshold test

The AP-7000 is Kowa’s next generation automated perimeter that offers an extensive variety of test strategies and screening programmes. It provides reliable and consistent assessment results due to its normalised database. Full threshold modes offer macular, central and peripheral coverage up to 80° whilst screening modes provide swift evaluation of the visual fi eld for relative or absolute scotomas. To shorten test times quick modes are available for both threshold and screening modes. Furthermore, by automatically correlating the fundus image (from a fundus camera, OCT or SLO) with the static visual fi eld, early detection of glaucoma is possible.

With its ergonomic, compact design, the AP-7000 offers additional comfort to patients, easy operation for the clinician and fi ts perfectly within the practice.

Special features

- Easy touch screen operation

- Quick modes for threshold & screening programmes

- Extensive range of test & screening strategies, including blue/yellow test

KT-800

Non-contact tonometer with 3D auto alignment

Anterior

Accurate eye tracking tonometer

The KT-800 is an accurate and easy to use non-contact tonometer. Auto alignment simply requires placing the positioning spot inside a circle on the monitor after which alignment up and down, right and left and forwards and backwards is automatic. The air puff is very gentle and feels “soft” to the patient. The pressure measurement range goes from 1 to 60mmHg without any range switching and the results are swiftly printed on paper. The chin rest height is electrically controlled using buttons close at hand. The instrument detects occasions when the eye is not open suffi ciently and prevents processing of the potentially inaccurate measurement.
