In accordance with its longstanding tradition of attendance, Kowa Optimed is proud to announce it will return to exhibit at the 117th annual American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) Meeting November 14th through 19th at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.
“We are very excited to participate in the AAO convention, which is the largest meeting of its kind and the most prestigious in North America,” says Rick Torney, Medical Sales Manager for Kowa Optimed. “Our staff looks forward to meeting new customers and assisting returning customers with their next Kowa purchase.”
The Kowa Optimed booth will offer a range of products to test with knowledgeable staff on hand to answer any questions visitors may have. Kowa Optimed is proud to feature the Kowa Nonmyd WX3D simultaneous stereo retinal camera in this year’s booth, in addition to the Kowa AP 7000 perimeter, Kowa FM-600 and Kowa FM-700 flare meters, the gold standard SL-15 hand-held slit lamp, and the Kowa VX-20 combination non-mydriatic and mydriatic retinal camera. Kowa Optimed will also have software engineers on hand to discuss Kowa’s innovative Digiversal software program.
Kowa will offer special promotional pricing for several Kowa products. Medical Sales Manager Rick Torney states,“these prices will only be offered during the course of the show, so guests are encouraged to come by our booth to discuss these limited-time savings with a Kowa representative.”
This year’s featured product, the Kowa Nonmyd WX3D simultaneous stereo retinal camera, offers both 2D and superior stereo 3D images while maintaining Kowa’s high quality imaging and ease of use. The Nonmyd WX3D uses an exclusive optical design combined with a high-resolution Nikon digital camera back. The Nonmyd WX3D displays images of the ONH and macula in 3D, providing superior stereo images to support diagnosis of sight-threatening conditions such as glaucoma. In 2D mode, the Nonmyd WX3D operates like a standard 45-degree non-mydriatic retinal camera. The small pupil option enables photography even with smaller pupil sizes. Mosaic photography is an additional option available when using the 9-point fixation mode.
Kowa Optimed can be found at booth number 3739.
