Retinal Camera KOWA VX-10α - Kowa

Retinal Camera KOWA VX-10α

Kowa presents the VX-10α, two-in-one mydriatic and non-mydriatic camera.

Highly effective and ergonomically designed, the VX-10 is the ideal tool for eye-care photography.

Kowa is the pioneer in combination non-mydriatic & mydriatic retinal cameras. The VX-10α 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. Small pupil mode enables both color and FA photography in cases of insufficient mydriasis. View color and FA images captured with the latest Nikon cameraback in perfect alignment on the LCD monitor.

Features and Benefits

Three Photographic Modes

  • 3 modes with one-touch switch ( nonmydriatic / mydriatic / fluorescein )
  • Mydriatic color and fluorescein photography can now be aligned through the LCD observation monitor
  • Multiple step flash for proper exposure in various photographic modes
  • Built-in internal fixation target for optic nerve head photography
  • Built-in small pupil mode (during mydriatic color and fluorescein photography) for patients with insufficient pupillary dilation

Easy Functionality

  • Easy alignment and focusing adjustment with the LCD observation monitor
  • Operationally focused, darkroom adapted navigation panel
  • Clear viewfinder with long eye relief design
  • Simple focusing with the point matching method
  • Electric insertion of the fluorescein filter
