The Clínica de Oftalmología de Cali, always at the cutting edge of medical technology, offers to the public at large the Retcam 3, a pediatric-ophthalmology specialized equipment. We are one of only two institutions in Latin America that have and use this device.
The RetCam3 system was designed especially for the pediatric field using last generation technology that allows the capture of wide field images in high resolution and capture videos quickly and easily.
These images can be stored, displayed and transferred through an intelligent analysis system that enables real-time diagnosis. Its use has important advantages:
With a single capture, it allows an examination of a wide area of the retina. The wide field lens can easily document the entire retina with just nine images. This is achieved through image resolution offered by the RetCam3 system.
The RetCam’s software allows the comparison of images of the same patient at the same time, this is a feature used by the specialist to observe the evolution between exams and optimize the diagnosis.

Retinal Detachment by Trauma , Shaken Baby Syndrome, Toxoplasmosis, Toxocariasis, Herpes, Strabismus and tumors on a timely basis to improve visual and vital patient forecasts.
