Kowa Optimed returns after a short hiatus to the Vision Expo West show to debut the new SL-17 portable slit lamp.

The SL-17 has been upgraded to a 20,000 lux white LED source controlled by an illuminated thumb wheel for easy adjustments even in darkened examination rooms. The SL-17 uses commercially available AAA rechargeable and dry cell batteries, which is an improvement over the previous SL-15 design requiring batteries designed specifically for the device. The new Sl-17 base design increased stability, providing a safer place to charge and store the SL-17 when not in use. The SL-17 is also compatible with an optional camera adapter with a diffuser and yellow filter, which allows documentation of the anterior segment through image and video capture. Other improvements to the Sl-17 design include adjustable slit lengths and a new non-slip ergonomic grip to provide maximum comfort for the operator during lengthy examinations. The SL-17 will be available in white and three other colors – pink, green, and blue – for pediatric use.

In addition to introducing this new device, Kowa will offer special pricing to Vision Expo West attendees for the following products: the SL-15 Handheld Portable Slit Lamp, the Kowa AP-7000 Automated Perimeter, the Kowa Nonmyd α-DIII Nonmydriatic Retinal Camera, the Kowa Nonmyd 7 Nonmydriatic Retinal Camera, and the Nonmyd WX3D Simultaneous Stereoscopic Photography Retinal Camera. These prices are only available to attendees for the duration of the expo.
