IOLMASTER: This is the most sophisticated and accurate was to determine the power of the intraocular lens (IOL) implant for cataract surgery.  The IOL Master allows fast, accurate measurements of eye length and surface curvature, necessary for cataract surgery.  The IOL Master is efficient as it allows measurements to be taken with confidence in the accuracy of results.  Furthermore, it is a non-contact (nothing touches the eye and no drops are needed) and non invasive.

TOPOGRAPHY:. Topography provides both a qualitative and quantitative evaluation of corneal curvature. It does so by utilizing concentric rings, which project onto the cornea to create a virtual image. The device compares this image to the target size, and the computer then calculates the corneal curvature. Although many different systems are available, all share some unifying measurement characteristics. The computer ized topographer can generate various graphical representations. When performing corneal mapping for diagnosis of conditions and/or contact lens fitting.

Pachymetry: Pachymetry is a measurement of the thickness of the cornea. Some conditions can cause the cornea to thicken or fill with liquid. Pachymetry can be a vital tool in diagnosing such conditions in order to limit loss of vision.

Pentacam:The Pentacam measurement process takes less than two seconds and minute eye movements are captured and corrected simultaneously. By measuring true elevation points, precise representation, repeatability and analysis are guaranteed. These data points are then used to generate corneal maps used for diagnosis and treatment.

ORA:The ocular response analyzer (ORA) is a non-contact (air puff) tonometer that does not require topical anesthesia and provides additional information on the biomechanical properties of the cornea. It uses an air pulse to deform the cornea in to a slight concavity. The difference between the pressures at which the cornea flattens inward and outward is measured by the machine and termed corneal hysteresis (CH). The machine uses this value to correct for the effects of the cornea on measurement.

HEP:Visual field testing remains the main diagnostic tool to provide information about a patient’s visual function, quality of vision and quality of life. Functional testing supports clinicians in early disease detection, staging of disease or trend analysis in progressive glaucoma. 2-in-1 perimetry with HEP offers the most appropriate test for each stage of disease. It allows you to offer the right stimulus to your patient at the appropriate stage of disease.(www.heidelbergengineering.com)

HRT-GLAUCOMA-MODULE:The Heidelberg Retina Tomograph (HRT) is a proven, essential tool for detecting and managing glaucoma, especially for assisting in the identification of pre-perimetric disease and tracking progression. The Ancillary Study to the Ocular Hypertension Treatment Study (OHTS) demonstrated that optic disc analysis detected glaucoma conversion in 55% of cases, before any detectable loss of visual function. The HRT has proved to be a robust predictor of glaucoma. OHTS also concluded that the HRT recognized temporal superior defects which later developed into confirmed glaucoma in 40% of cases – looking only at baseline measurements – then confirmed the diagnosis with an average of 5 years of follow-up. Equally impressive was that 93% of all HRT cases flagged as within normal limits at baseline remained within normal limits during the same time period.(www.heidelbergengineering.com)

CORVIS:The Corvis® ST is a Non-Contact-Tonometer and allows seeing the reaction of the cornea on an air impulse. An high-speed Scheimpflug-camera (4330 frames/sec) records the movements of the cornea which then are displayed on the built-in control panel in ultra-slow-mo. So far unseen pictures allow exciting new ways in the assessment of corneal properties for various applications from Keratoconus screening to Glaucoma.( www.oculus.de)

UBM:Ultrasound biomicroscopy utilizes high frequency transducers to obtain high resolution. Our unit, with a 50 MHz transducer, achieves a resolution of approximately 50 microns, and has a tissue penetration of 4-5 mm. Scanning is performed with the patient in the supine position under standardized room lighting conditions. Scanning is performed under topical anesthesia using a 20 mm eye cup which is inserted between the lids and filled with saline solution. In vivo, cross-sectional or transverse images can then be obtained detailing the cornea, iris, ciliary body, anterior chamber angle, and peripheral sclera to demonstrate structural relationships.

SPECULAR MICROSCOPY :a noninvasive photographic technique that allows you to visualize and analyze the corneal endothelium. Using computer-assisted morphometry, modern specular microscopes analyze the size, shape and population of the endothelial cells. The instrument projects light onto the cornea and captures the image that is reflected from the optical interface between the corneal endothelium and the aqueous humor. The reflected image is analyzed by the instrument and displayed as a specular photomicrograph .In clinical practice, specular microscopy is the most accurate way to examine the corneal endothelium.
