Endothelial cell morphology is like a ‘canary in the coal mine’…a potential warning that the structural stability of the endothelium has been affected, possibly by surgical procedures, disease, trauma or contact lenses.

Konan Medical is trusted to provide the most widely used specular microscopy and endothelial analysis tools for routine clinical practice, clinical trials supporting both implantable devices and pharmaceuticals professional reading centers, and the worlds #1 donor corneal tissue analysis system to the majority of the worlds’ premier eye banks qualifying donor corneal tissue.
This is not a coincidence, it has been and is continuously earned.
Only from Konan Medical.
What is KonanCare assistance?
On request, KonanCare assistance enables eye care practitioners to consult, by appointment, with Konan’s on-staff experts for interpretation of specular microscopic images, and to receive assistance on more advanced topics and methods associated with Konan’s products. With all current product models, a web-base, by permission only login session can be initiated allowing both the physician and the KonanCare team member to simultaneously view and discuss actual images using secure internet web services.
KonanCare assistance is provided without charge for customers during the initial warranty period or during any period of Service Agreement coverage. A unique service, only from Konan Medical.

Why are some of my images blurry or “washed out” on the right side?
Why are my images white and oversaturated?
Why are my images partially black on the left side of the image?
Why am I receiving a Failure to Record error or black images on some patients?
If you are receiving Failure to Record when imaging a Patient with Cataracts, try capturing using manual photography. Cataracts can prevent the optics from finding the endothelial layer. In these instances, simply use manual photography and provide an approximate pachymetry value. This will tell the optics at what depth to take the image. If your approximate value is too deep and you capture part of the Aqueous, your image will show black on the left area of the image. Simply decrease the pachymetry value and re-capture. If your approximate value is too shallow, you may capture part of the Stroma, showing white on the right area of the image. Simply increase the pachymetry value and re-capture.
Manually specify the pachymetry value using the up/down arrows at the image acquisition screen. Click the pachymetry value to return to AUTO capture. Drop the last digit when specifying the pachymetry value using Manual Photography (for example, a pach value of 580 should be set to 58).
What if auto capture fails to capture the image due to advanced corneal dystrophies?
