To get a close and magnified view of the inside of your eye I use the Kowa Nonmyd Retinal Imaging system. This camera takes detailed pictures of the most important structures inside your eye. These critical areas of your retina include the optic nerve, macula, and blood vessels. Younger patients typically do not need to be dilated in order to take the photos which is a plus. Not only does this allow me to show you any concerns that I may find, it also helps me assess your eye health and monitor changes and guide treatment options for those with glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetes... among other conditions.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: The Nonmyd 7 is a high quality digital retinal camera built with traditional Kowa reliability. Capture high levels of clinical detail with the sharp and clear images of the latest Nikon® digital camera. A choice of optical magnifications offers enhanced detail.

*Since the image is digital, it is easy to forward copies to specialty providers or to you for your own records
The Kowa Digital Fundus Camera is an amazing tool used to keep track of the smallest changes in the back of the eye. The high resolution digital camera offers high quality images and allows for easy image storage. With the high resolution digital images, I get sharper, clearer images that guarantee the best clinical decisions.
This technology is essential in providing an OBJECTIVE image of your eye health. Forget about listening to a doctors "super tech" description about what we see in the back of your eye! After your exam I can quickly show you what I see- in greatly magnified detail- which provides an awesome educational opportunity so you can better understand your own eye health. Much like Sherlock Holmes with his magnifying lens, I can view the tiniest details with great clarity. Other imaging systems that give a wide field view simply cannot give this level of detail.
