Practitioners can now experience an improved Orbscan model by Bausch + Lomb. The new Orbscan 3 features multiple enhancements to serve as an indispensable screening tool for refractive procedures, according to the company.
The device offers the ability to examine anterior and posterior astigmatism and optical pachymetry, providing corneal biomechanic data and stability to inform surgical choices and identify appropriate candidates, according to B+L.
Orbscan 3 provides a contact-free analysis of the anterior segment using a slit scan. It also features user-friendly touch screen technology and new software, according to B+L.
Nidek’s microperimeter has enhanced functionality in the form of a new model, the MP-3. It now includes a wider range of stimulus intensity, from 0 to 34 dB, than the MP-1, according to Nidek. The MP-3 measures perimetric threshold values, even for normal eyes, while a maximum stimulus luminance of 10,000 asb allows evaluation of low-sensitivity, according to Nidek. The MP-3 comes with auto tracking and auto alignment functions, reducing variations between examiners for well-aligned follow-up exams, according to Nidek.
The device allows better evaluation of retinal morphology with the 12-megapixel fundus camera’s high-res images and easy image acquisition, according to Nidek.
Corneal Shape Analyzer Upgrades
Cassini’s Corneal Shape Analyzer has gotten new upgrades that improve pre- and post-op surgical assessment. Its posterior cornea measurement capability received an algorithm update that provides customized total cornea data for refractive cataract surgery, according to Cassini. Stability tracking detects excessive eye movement and displays a warning signal to reduce error. And faster acquisition times provide a better user and patient experience, as this helps ensure the quality of data and reduces re-scans, according to Cassini.
