• Corneal biomechanical properties influence the results and outcomes of ocular measurements and procedures, and may hold clues to diagnosing and managing ocular diseases. Until now, assessing the biomechanical properties of corneal tissue has not been possible, confining practitioners and researchers to measuring purely geometrical aspects of the cornea, such as thickness and topography.

    The Reichert Ocular Response Analyser provides a new measurement of corneal tissue properties called Corneal Hysteresis (CH) that is a result of viscous damping in the corneal tissue.
