Procedural Technology

Technology used for ophthalmology treatment include the Humphrey Field Analyzer and the IOLMaster.

What does the Humphrey Field Analyzer measure?

The Humphrey Field Analyzer measures the visual fields, which is a more precise term for the different areas of peripheral vision.

Why is this useful?

Loss of visual fields can occur when the peripheral areas of the retina are damaged, or when neural pathways between the eyes and the brain are damaged.

What does the IOLMaster measure?

The IOLMaster is a device that measures the visual axis length, the corneal radii, and the anterior-chamber depth of the eye.

Why is this useful?

In cataract surgery, the now cloudy natural lens of the eye is replaced by a specially designed lens called an intra-ocular lens (IOL). These measurements are needed to find out the specifications for the lens.
