High quality retinal imaging

The GENESIS-D portable, hand held, mydriatic retinal camera is ideal for domiciliary situations or where imaging using a conventional table-mounted camera is not possible. An LCD monitor on the side of the camera allows immediate review of the images whilst connectivity includes the Kowa VK-2 software as well as export of images in DICOM, JPG and BMP formats.

Easy operation

Designed for easy one-handed shooting, all the controls fall easily to hand and can be operated from both sides of the camera.


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 are supported with 1-click switching between instruments. Images can be edited and magnified for viewing and filters such as red free are readily available.
