The visual result in modern surgery of intraocular lens implantation (refractive surgery and / or cataract) requires a very accurate previous measurement. The IOLMaster is probably the most advanced equipment today to get the most reliable measurements, this is such a precision equipment, that it has revolutionized all existing procedures to date. This technology is based on optical biometry combined with partially coherent interferometry (PCI).
On this basis, it is now possible to measure without contact and using only one equipment, the ocular axis length, corneal radius and the depth of the anterior chamber of the eye, data needed to determine the proper power of the intraocular lens (IOL) to be implanted , which is different for each patient. The possibilities of the IOLMaster encompass much more, including the calculation of the IOL data using biometric formulas and selecting a lens type in a database. The optical contactless biometrics eliminates the need for local anesthesia and eliminates the risk of transmission of infections. The test is simple, quick and harmless.
