Cataract Surgery

Intracorneal Rings - Usually for Keratoconus
Corneal astigmatic incisions

Intrastromal Implants -

Purpose: Anterior Segment Analysis

Link: http://www.oculususa.com/prd_comp.php

Principle of Measurement
The Pentacam images the anterior segment of the eye by a rotating Scheimpflug camera measurement. This rotating

process supplies pictures in three dimensions. The center of the cornea is measured very precisely because of this rotational imaging process.
The measurement process lasts less than two seconds and minute eye movements

are captured and corrected simultaneously. By measuring 25,000 true elevation points, precise representation, repeatability and analysis are guaranteed. The following information on the eye is captured or assessed.

IOL MASTER 700 [SWEPT Source Biometry]

Company: Zeiss MeditecIOLMaster700

Link: IOLMaster 700

Purpose: BIOMETRY - Measurements of ocular parameters used commonly in cataract + refractive surgery

The new Zeiss IOLMaster now integrates SWEPT Source OCT in a non-contact optical device that measures the distance from the corneal vertex to the retinal pigment epithelium by partial coherence interferometry, the IOL Master is consistently accurate to within 0.01 mm or better.

The original IOLMaster is the first such device to be widely used in


clinical ophthalmology.
Optical biometry along the visual axis is highly accurate. Erroneous measurements are virtually eliminated. Exact measurement of the length of the ocular axis is possible even with eyes not ideally formed. High ametropia, pupil size as well as state of accommodation will not affect the accuracy of measurement. The risk of confusing right and left eye is excluded.

SWEPT Source further improves alignment, improved repeatability, Toric intraocular lens calculations possible directly on the Instrument.


Company: Haag-StreitLenstar 900

Link: http://www.haag-streit.com/

Purpose: Biometry

Our second Biometer to improve our Intraocular Lens Implant Calculations.
Unique factors include a T-Cone addition for improved astigmatic evaluation.
A nine-in-one measurement action.
Apart from supreme accuracy, crystalline lens thickness measurements, the Lenstar provides advanced generation formulae that improve lens calculation predictability, and in particular for Toric and Multifocal lenses.
These include the  Olsen Formula, the Barrett Formula and also Haigis
Shammas, Masket and Modified Masket formulae enable improved outcomes for calculations in patients having had prior refractive/excimer procedures.

ZEISS Related Surgical Microsopes + Computer aided surgery

Zeiss Lumera 700 microscopes

Callisto - Zeiss Cataract Surgery Suite



Company: Zeiss Meditec

Link: http://www.zeiss.com/

Purpose: Auto refractor/keratometer

The HARK 599 is the first full-featured
combination auto refractor/keratometer

with glare testing. Unlike other instruments,
the HARK allows for immediate patient feedback on the prescription.
Complete testing - Automatic alignment and tracking allow the instrument to follow shifts in eye movement during testing, while speeding up routine examination time, improving patient comfort level and achieving highly accurate refractions.
Automatic Keratometric readings In addition to all the features of the Automatic Refractor, the HARK 599 provides precise keratometric readings including Delta K's that are quickly and easily performed for all clinical needs.





Company: Zeiss Meditec

Link: HFA II Perimeter

The Humphrey Field Analyzer II is the recognized standard of care for early diagnosis, treatment and management of diseases resulting in visual field loss. With over 35,000 HFA systems in use around the world, the HFA is documented in hundreds of clinical trials.

Early Glaucoma Detection - Blue-Yellow perimetry has been shown to provide earlier detection of glaucomatous visual field loss

Reliable Results - Patented fixation monitoring features automatically track and align patient head and eye position, alerting the operator to patient movement away from the trial lens.
Patients appreciate the ergonomically designed instrument - that allows for maximum comfort.


Iridex - Diode Laser - Micropulse

Oculight slx 810 
Company: Iridex

Link: Micropulse Laser

Purpose: Retinal and Glaucoma Laser applications.

Unique application of laser energy via Micropulse
Micropulse laser is a tissue-sparing solution where a continuous-wave laser beam is chopped into a train of tiny, repetitive, low energy pulses separated by a brief rest period which allows tissue to cool between pulses.
Excellent efficacy with minimal tissue damage vs. other lasers used for similar applications.
Unique options for treating glaucoma such as MLT or Cyclodiode
