rtx1™ Adaptive Optics Retinal Camera *

ImageThe rtx1 Adaptive Optics Retinal Camera is a quantum leap forward in retinal imaging.  It is the only integrated device available that enables ophthalmologists to visualize the retina at the cellular scale.

This level of resolution enables the in vivo visualization of retinal cells and structures that are invisible using current standard imaging technologies including Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy (SLO).  Images acquired with the rtx1 reveal extraordinary details of cones, nerve fiber bundles, microscopic capillaries, and the lamina cribrosa (optic nerve head) – even in eyes with large ocular defects.

Its fully automated adaptive-optics system enables qualified staff members that are familiar with current retinal imaging modalities to easily operate the device.  That, coupled with its compact design, comparable to that of other ophthalmic imaging devices, makes it suitable for use in clinical research environments.

Key aspects include:

  • 4° x 4° imaging field (1.2 mm x 1.2 mm on the retina)1, 2;
  • 250 lppmm resolution1, 2;
  • Mydradic or non-mydractic1, 2;
  • Functions on eyes with large and irregular optical defects1, 2;
  • Non-contact imaging and NIR illumination ensure comfort;
  • Compact and ergonomic design.
