The tear film is assessed using either white or infrared illumination. The new high-resolution color camera makes even the finest of structures visible. In addition to NIKBUT (Non-Invasive Keratograph® Break-Up Time) and measurement of the meniscus tear, the TF-Scan can also make an assessment of the lipid layer and the tear film dynamics. Tear film analysis with the OCULUS Keratograph® 5M is non-invasive and is conducted without any additional tools.
The tear film break-up time is measured non-invasively and fully automatically. The new infrared illumination is not visible to the human eye. This prevents glare during the examination. The TF-scan presents the results in a way that is easy for you and your customers to understand.
The height of the tear meniscus can be precisely measured with an integrated ruler and various magnification options, and its development along the edge of the bottom lid can be assessed. The results are saved to the patient file.
The interference colors of the lipid layer and their structure are made visible and can be recorded. The thickness of the lipid layer is assessed based on the structure and color.
The video recording, with up to 32 frames per second, enables the observation of the tear film particle flow, from which conclusions regarding the viscosity of the tear film can be drawn.
Automatic classification of the bulbar redness. Conjunctival redness used to be assessed subjectively and depended on the examiner. The R-Scan is the first module that automatically and objectively documents and classifies the bulbar and limbal degree of redness. The R-Scan detects the blood vessels in the conjunctiva and evaluates the degree of redness. This automatic assessment spares you the time and effort of having to make manual comparisons using classification sheets.
The multi-functionality of the Keratograph® 5M easily and efficiently integrates difficult examinations such as meibography. The dysfunction of meibomian glands is the most frequent cause of dry eye. Morphological changes in the gland tissue are made visible using the Meibo-Scan and can be classified with the JENVIS Meibo Grading Scales.
Find out the cause of dry eye disease quickly and reliably with the assistance of the new Crystal TEAR Report in the Keratograph® 5M. Carry out a comprehensive analysis using the measurement results as a basis for your diagnosis. All results are summarized in a patient-friendly, neatly arranged printout, enabling you to combine documentation and patient education.
Up to 50 recordings can be carried out easily for documentation purposes. Readily understandable user tips and optimal auto-setting prior to each recording make it possible to delegate the entire measurement process. Despite the high degree of user guidance, you can directly delete faulty recordings as well as change settings and adapt the measurement sequence individually.
The entire course of diagnosis is documented, providing you with an ideal basis for your treatment decisions. All necessary recordings that are required to grade the individual's dry eye state, can be viewed at the same time. Depending on the grade you obtain, you can then determine a suitable treatment plan.
Additionally, you can enter the data from other tests, such as Osmolarity, Schirmer's Test, Phenol Red Thread Test, and more.
The Crystal TEAR Report surely and safely walks you through all the necessary assessment criteria that make up a comprehensive dry eye analysis. To complete the treatment plan, you can manually enter your dosage recommendations for the individual therapeutic measures on the printout. Making it an easy-to-grasp, optimal means of patient education.
The Imaging Software is used to record video and image files. In addition to viewing the videos and single images by themselves, you can also compare the recordings with the simulated fluorescein-images of the measured eye.
How Does That Work?
- Simply integrate the Imaging Software into the Keratograph® software
- Blue light-emitting diodes in the illumination beam path stimulate the fluorescein
- Yellow filters are integrated into the observation beam path
Result: Static fluorescein-images and videos can be recorded under slit lamp conditions!
- Demonstrating the fit of contact lenses
- Assessment of the static fluo-image
- Assessment of the fit of contact lenses at different pupil sizes
- Comparison of fluo-image simulations with real-time fluo-images
- Selection of the best possible contact lens
- Consultation and customer retention
The OxiMap® presents a color map of the oxygen transmissibility of soft contact lenses based on the lens power, which is easy to understand – even for your customers!
An intact tear film and a good supply of oxygen to the cornea are an absolute necessity for wearing contact lenses comfortably. The OxiMap® presents a color map of the oxygen transmissibility of soft contact lenses based on the lens power – which even your customers will understand!
The oxygen transmissibility (Dk/t) depends on the material the contact lens is made of and on its thickness. In the past, only the manufacturers’ specifications about the oxygen transmissibility in the center of a -3.00 dpt contact lens were available. With the OxiMap®, you now get a graphic visualization of the Dk/t values over the whole area, based on the lens thickness.
The Dk/t values are color-coded, whereby black represents an oxygen supply lower than that present in a closed eye. To preserve the integrity of the cornea when wearing contact lenses, minimum Dk/t values are recommended based on the length of time the contact lenses are to be worn. The OxiMap® color-coding is based on these international recommendations.
The OxiMap® is individually adapted based on the lens power and supports you in your consultation with the patient and helps you to choose the most suitable contact lens. New materials used for soft contact lenses provide excellent oxygen transmissibility.
OxiMap® was developed in close cooperation with JENVIS Research and the University of Applied Sciences in Jena.
- Fitting multi-focal contact lenses
- Exact determination of the treatment area for refractive surgery
- Seamless integration into the existing Keratograph® software
- The infrared camera installed in the Keratograph delivers images of the patient’s pupil, which are used as the basis for the measurements
Different Ways of Determining Pupil Reaction:
- Examination of the pupil reaction both with and without glare
- Examination using two different glare stimulus powers
- Clear presentation of the results in graphic form: pupil changes over a period of time; minimum, maximum and mean pupil diameter, incl. standard deviation
- Comparison views possible
