Pentacam LASIK Technology
We are pleased to introduce, to the New York area, the most advanced corneal analysis system available. The Pentacam photographs the anterior segment of the eye by rotating Scheimpflug camera measurements. This rotating process supplies pictures in three dimensions. 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 brought to levels never before attainable.
The data collected is used to evaluate the front portion, or anterior segment, of the eye. One of the most valuable pieces of information obtained during this measurement is corneal thickness, which is an important factor in determining candidacy for LASIK and PRK laser eye surgery.
