Principle of Measurement
The Pentacam images the anterior segment of the eye by a rotating Scheimpflug camera measurement. This rotating process supplies pictures in three dimensions. The centre of the cornea is measured very precisely because of this rotational imaging process. The measurement process lasts less than two seconds and minute eye movements are captured and corrected simultaneously. By measuring 25,000 true elevation points, precise representation, repeatability and analysis are guaranteed.
“Having managed a series of complications arising from cases in which other surgeons have used the FS laser, I question the connection between reduced risk and absence of blade.”
“Today, surgeons are using the concept of bladeless LASIK to attract patients, but they’re using it without documented evidence that it is better.”
“There’s no question that a surgeon can create an excellent flap with either the Amadeus microkeratome or the Intralase FS laser…I’d have to say there’s no distinguishable difference in flap quality with either technology.”
“Two types of surgeons will buy an Intralase: The surgeon who’s having problems with a microkeratome and wants to improve surgical outcomes and the surgeon who’s getting great LASIK results with a microkeratome but who wants the Intralase for practice development”.
The initial assessment visit is free.
