Product:
Canon RK-F2
Top Line: The Canon RK-F2 Full Auto Ref-Keratometer is the company's newest eyecare product. It features a compact design, weighs 11 pounds less than its predecessor, and simplifies the standard autorefraction and keratometry measurement procedure to just one step.
Close Up: When set to full auto mode, a healthcare professional can automatically align, focus and acquire a reading for one eye and continue to the opposite eye to perform the same function, all with one touch of a button. The RK-F2, which incorporates a motorized chin rest, has a minimum pupil size of 2.0 mm, an enhancement over the predecessor product's 2.5 mm minimum. Together, these features contribute to a comfortable, efficient screening process, helping to assist the healthcare professional when a patient's pupil is difficult to dilate.
