Kowa American Corporation is proud to deliver two new products to their line of mobile solutions for ophthalmologists. Both the new SL-17 Portable Handheld Slit Lamp and 2WIN Binocular Autorefractometer will be on display at the International Vision Expo and Conference in New York on March 19-22, 2015 and the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus Annual Meeting in New Orleans on March 25-29, 2015.
Kowa's new SL-17 Handheld Portable Slit Lamp represents further enhancements to our gold standard fifth generation product. Kowa replaced the halogen lamp and updated the battery power source and is powered by four (4) AAA rechargeable or dry cell batteries. The SL-17 now uses high luminance white LED light, adding a rheostat to deliver proper illumination. This makes the SL-17 ultra-portable with approximately 140 minutes under continuous illumination.
The 2WIN Binocular Autorefractometer is the newest development in refraction. This hand-held device is fully automated and effectively measures all amblyogenic factors. The 2WIN is ideal for infants and children due to its fast five-second exam time and easy operation.
The SL-17 Handheld Slit Lamp and 2WIN Binocular Autorefractor can both be viewed at the Vision Expo East in Kowa's booth number 6851 and the AAPOS meeting in booth number T13. Kowa's WX-3D Retinal Camera will also be on display with free demonstrations for all products.
