Superior high quality retinal imaging

Kowa is the pioneer in combination non-mydriatic & mydriatic retinal cameras. The VX-10i offers non-mydriatic, mydriatic and FA modes with a 50° field of view in full mydriatic mode. The optics are mounted on a swing arm to allow photography of the peripheral retina. SP mode allows both colour and FA photography in cases of insufficient mydriasis. Colour and FA images can be aligned to the LCD monitor and are captured using the latest Nikon® digital camera back. ICG capability is possible by utilising Kowa’s 1.4 mega pixels digital CCD camera which can be easily added as an option to VX-10i.

Easy operation

Operation is simple, with controls designed for use in darkened rooms and with multiple step flash settings for correct exposure in all modes of operation.


VK-2 – High performance digital imaging software

The VK-2 digital imaging software easily captures and stores retinal photographs taken from Kowa retinal cameras well as images from other sources including a scanner. Video inputs via USB or IEEE1394 (Firewire®) are supported with 1-click switching between instruments. Images can be magnified for viewing and filters such as red free are readily available. In ICG and FA mode the patient timer is displayed on screen and multiple timers are available in FA mode for managing several patients. A montage function creates panoramic views from multiple fundus images.
