TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Eye Doctors Optometry Clinic is pleased to announce it now uses the advanced OCULUS Keratograph® 5M corneal topographer in the diagnosis of dry eyes. This machine accesses thousands of measuring points to assess the entire surface of the cornea, allowing for an extremely accurate assessment of each patient’s eye condition. Because of this, a more focused diagnosis and course of treatment is possible.
The OCULUS Keratograph® 5M is one of the most advanced corneal topographers in use today. Its state of the art technology includes a built-in real keratometer, color camera and the ability to examine the meibomian glands. It also has non-invasive tear film break-up time, tear meniscus height measurement and other advanced features.
Dry eye, also known as dry eye syndrome, is a progressive and chronic condition that affects millions of Americans. In some cases, dry eyes may not be fully curable, depending upon the severity and exact cause. However with proper diagnosis and treatment, dry eyes can be mitigated and managed, resulting in fewer symptoms, sharper vision and greatly increased eye comfort.
Dr. Samuel Teske of The Eye Doctors in Tampa explains, “Since dry eye disease has numerous potential causes, various treatments may be used. Accuracy in this matter is key, and the precision afforded by the OCULUS Keratograph® 5M allows for an extremely focused and accurate diagnosis. From there, we can create the ideal course of treatment for each client.”
The OCULUS Keratograph® 5M features a state of the art optimized color camera for external imaging as well as a built-in real keratometer. Other unique features of this innovative technology include a non-invasive tear film break-up time, the ability to examine meibomian glands and the lipid layer, and a tear meniscus height measurement feature.
The OCULUS Keratograph® 5M takes thousands of measuring points on the client’s eye into consideration when measuring the corneal surface. A specialized, targeted white ring illumination is used. Infrared ring illumination is also employed during the process, which helps to prevent glare-related reflex secretions when analyzing the tear film.
Light emitting diodes assist the OCULUS Keratograph® 5M in taking a range of key eye measurements. The ideal illumination has been integrated for each important metric; white diodes are used for tear film dynamics, infrared diodes for Meibography, and blue diodes are enacted to take fluo-images.
