VX-20 Mydriatic / Non Mydriatic Integrated Retinal Camera
Innovative design in full pursuit of retinal camera. both patien-friendly and easy-to-use for operator.
In addition to non-mydriatic color, fluorescein fundus angiography (FA), red free (RF) modes, fundus autofluorescense (FAF*) mode is added to allow 5-modes photography. Also, the SP mode that allows photography of 0 3.5mm for small pupils is equipped.
75mm reduced height of examined eye from our previous mode ("VX10" series), allowing photography in a relaxed posture.
The instant image filling feature allows ID management of images, browsing, and direct output to the external printer.  In addition, images can be output to every electric medical records of any manufacturers through the network, not to mention by connecting to the image system Kowa VK-2.
Field of view can be switched between 45*/27* in non mydriatic mode or between 50*/30* in mydriatic mode by a simple pressing of a button.
In mydriatic mode, the fundus can be observed through the optical viewfinder, allowing photography of images exactly as viewed. The feature is particularly helpful for photographing peripheral part of the retina.
VX-20, simple operation with various useful feature, supporting smooth daily medical practices.
Eye level indication can be easily seen even in the darkroom.
Stable chassis that makes it easy to assist in eyelid opening.
The downward tilt angle has been expansion to 11*
Thus, facilitating upward-angle shoots, which have been difficult with the conventional models
As with compared to our previous models.
