Fundus Camera: “RetinaStation”

TOKYO - Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce the release of “RetinaStation”. The camera is able to capture high definition fundus images with full automation.

Overview of Release

Name of Item Fundus Camera: “RetinaStation”
Release Date From the start of October, 2019

This non-mydriatic fundus camera detects abnormal changes in the retina at the back of the eye, without the use of a mydriatic agent to open the pupil. The camera has been designed for use in ophthalmic and health diagnosis.

Diseases such as glaucoma, pigmentary degeneration of the retina, diabetic retinopathy, and age-related macular degeneration, are often the cause of sight loss. These conditions are becoming more common due to an aging society and changing lifestyles. The easy-to-operate fundus camera “RetinaStation”, released by Nikon for clinics and medical diagnosis facilities, has fully automatic intuitive functions which reduce the burden on both patients and medical personnel.

Our company aims to detect disease early by continuing to expand our product line, starting with “RetinaStation”. Our aim is to improve global Quality of Life (QOL) and work toward achieving a world without sight loss, so we contribute to early detection and early treatment of eye diseases while developing innovative products and utilizing AI to provide new technologies and solutions*.

  • *Commercialization of AI utilized solutions are being considered for US and European markets only.
