Backed by 30 years of industry-leading experience, the CR-1 Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera delivers ultra-high resolution images in an ergonomic, easy to use design while also providing quicker, more comfortable exams for the patient.

High quality, high-resolution images
The CR-1 Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera features an optical system that achieves detailed, high-resolution diagnostic images of the retina for accurate detection and monitoring of ocular conditions including diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.  The high pixel count of the attached EOS digital SLR camera (sold separately) delivers detailed image quality even when magnified.

2X digital magnification
“2X” mode provides a closer, magnified view of the retina.  It works by automatically cropping out the periphery of the image so that the region of interest is larger in the frame.  Closeups are extremely clear and detailed thanks to the high pixel count of the attached digital camera.

Streamlined system and workflow
The network capability and control software of the CR-1 Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera work to streamline the entire diagnostic workflow, allowing you to conveniently review, analyze, print, store, and transmit images to remote viewing locations.  The DICOM-compliant network interface enables easy integration with existing image management systems and allows connection to a variety of network configurations such as LAN, WAN and PACS.

Ergonomic design with intuitive controls
Advanced specifications are integrated into an ergonomic unit that facilitates operation by motorized procedures rather than by hand.  The illuminated operation panel enables easy one-handed operation in darkened rooms.

Quick and comfortable exams for the patient
Nine steps of flash adjustment are available in addition to low flash mode.  Low flash intensity makes it easy to retake photos or take images of both eyes.  A short working distance allows close interaction with the patient, plus easy access to the patient's eye.  A front cover panel also protects the patient from the instrument's moving parts.

Eye fixation targets
The finely calibrated internal eye fixation target of the CR-1 Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera provides the patient with a fixed, consistent point of focus throughout the image capture procedure, making it quick and easy to achieve a clear and stable image.  A swivel type external eye fixation target is available as an option and sold separately.
