NIDEK CO., LTD., a global player in the design, manufacture, and distribution of ophthalmic, optometric, and lens edging equipment, has announced the launch of a “new” VersaCam™ α Digital Medical Scope.
The VersaCam™ α, a versatile and portable fundus imaging unit, provides high quality images with simple functionality, according to the company. The newly added auto shot function makes it easier to operate. Image capture without pressing a button reduces chances of image blur. Virtually “touch free” operation is now possible with the auto focus and auto shot functions. The operator holds the unit at the correct distance and images are acquired automatically.
The VersaCam™ α contains a 5-megapixel clear-color camera with 45° horizontal angle of view (40° vertical) providing high quality digital imaging. The unit can be operated continuously for three hours without recharging.
This portable unit with its intuitive user functionality means fundus screenings can be performed almost anywhere.
