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.
Comprehensive Pressure and Cornea Information
- IOPcc (Corneal Compensated IOP) – New IOP measurement less affected by corneal properties.
- CH (Corneal Hysteresis) – Measure of viscous damping in the cornea, providing new indicators for disease diagnosis and management.
- CRF (Corneal Resistance Factor) – Total visco-elastic response of the cornea.
- IOPg (Goldmann Correlated IOP) – Traditional IOP measurement for historical reference.
- Patented dynamic bi-directional applanation process enables the only direct measure of corneal biomechanical properties.
- Eliminates operator variance by utilizing microprocessor control technology and objective measurement criteria.
- Patient and Operator Friendly
- No chinrest and a soft, quiet air puff make the Ocular Response Analyzer a comfortable, non-intimidating experience for your patients.
- Fully automatic alignment and measurement provide fast, repeatable results, allowing any member of your staff to conduct an exam.
Powerful Software Package
- Enables automatic data capture of all measurements for analyzing trends, treatment efficacy, and diurnal variations.
- Comprehensive patient management database simplifies record keeping.
- Comprehensive printout for hard-copy results.
