Canon CX-1- World’s First Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera to Take FAF Photography

The CX-1 is Canon’s first fully hybrid digital retinal camera with both mydriatic and non-mydriatic modes. With one-touch, the operator can automatically switch between mydriatic and non-mydriatic modes, effortlessly utilizing different functions within seconds and performing several concurrent ocular tests. Canon’s EOS camera technology, with its renowned image processing capabilities, has been adapted exclusively for medical use in the CX-1, providing up to 15.1-megapixel resolution. The CX-1 is capable of delivering clear and detailed diagnostic images for virtually immediate review. The single onboard digital camera handles five different photography modes with ease, including FAF, Color, Red-Free, Cobalt and Fluorescein Angiography photography.

The Canon CX-1 allows the user to take one-shot FAF (Fundus Autofluorescence) photography, in a standard configuration, for both mydriatic and non-mydriatic modes. Detecting Autofluorescence of the retina is an important indication of the retina’s health. Using the non-mydriatic mode not only saves time and resources, it also can make the diagnostic procedure more comfortable for the patient.
