The NIDEK NAVIS-EX software can acquire images from these fundus photography devices and display them in ExamWRITER:

  • AFC-230/AFC-210 Non-Mydriatic Autofocus Fundus Camera
  • AFC-330 Non-Mydriatic Auto Fundus Camera

ExamWRITER interacts with the NIDEK NAVIS-EX software as follows:

  • Before the capture process when patient information is transferred from ExamWRITER into NIDEK NAVIS-EX Capture to create or update patient information and retinal images
  • During the review process when new or existing NIDEK NAVIS-EX patient information and retinal images are available for review

ExamWRITER and NAVIS-EX communicate with each other through a command-line interface located at C:\NIDEK\EMR\Client\MiddlewareCLI.exe.

The NIDEK NAVIS-EX interface saves equipment data to the NIDEK NAVIS-EX database. You can view the images on all computers that have ExamWRITER and the NAVIS-EX software installed and the NAVIS-EX review interface enabled.

Network Connection Method

The NIDEK NAVIS-EX interface uses a serial RS-232 cable or a null modem to connect to the computer. The NIDEK NAVIS-EX interface cannot connect to a Terminal Server.
