Bennett & Bloom Eye Centers uses the state-of-the-art Zeiss IOLMaster 700 to quickly and precisely measure the boundaries for intraocular lens (IOL) implantation without ever touching the cornea. This is the first Swept source OCT-based biometer. Unlike traditional A-scan biometry in which the eye is imaged in only one dimension, the IOLMaster 700 provides an image-based measurement, allowing one to view a complete cross section of the eye extending from the cornea to the retina.
“Bennett & Bloom Eye Centers was the first practice in this area to utilize the original Zeiss IOLMaster 500,” states Dr. John Millin. “We are delighted to offer the newest Zeiss IOLMaster and the technological advancement and precision it allows us to offer to our patients.”
If a patient’s natural lens of the eye is removed, due to cataracts or vision correction purposes, an IOL is then implanted into the eye. This IOL’s “power” or strength needed to give the patient good vision, is very carefully calculated by the surgeons at Bennett & Bloom Eye Centers. Though the instrument previously used to take these measurements was accurate and dependable, the IOLMaster has highly refined this measurement.
Key features of the IOLMaster 700 include:
- Complete biometric parameters for accurate IOL power: Corneal thickness, anterior chamber depth, lens thickness, axial length
- First in the industry swept source OCT-based biometer
- Improved refractive results after cataract surgery: Identifies irregular eye geometries such as lens tilt, images the fovea to ensure correct fixation, telecentric keratometry
