The Pentacam, in addition to Atlas topography and Orbscan, provides the most in-depth and conclusive measurements of the ocular surface. These measurements allow us to get precise outcomes for out cataract and LASIK and vision correction patients. It also helps us identity early and progressive forms of keratoconus and corneal ectasia.
Within just two seconds the Pentacam gives us precise diagnostic data on the entire anterior eye segment. The degree of corneal or crystalline lens density is made visible by the light scattering properties of the crystalline lens and is automatically quantified by the software. Measurement of the anterior and posterior corneal surfaces supply the total refractive power as well as the thickness of the cornea over its entire area. The data on the posterior surface provides optimal assistance in the early detection of ectatic changes.
