The Pentacam HR performs a complete measurement of the anterior eye segment in less than 2 seconds and its 1.45 MegaPixel camera provides Scheimpflug images of the highest quality.
A precise analysis of the central cornea is carried out in the process. During measurement extraneous eye movements are detected with a second pupil camera and automatically corrected during the calculation process. The software analyses and evaluates all the data acquired. This data then provides the basis for a three-dimensional model of the complete anterior eye segment.
The Pentacam analyses the entire cornea, anterior chamber and crystalline lens. This includes an objective determination of the central radii, corneal asphericity, various coloured maps of curvature and elevation, chamber angle, chamber volume and chamber elevation as well as lens transparency. Tomography shows the individual levels of the anterior eye segment in a freely rotating model. Measurement is non-contact and comfortable for the patient.
