DEVICES

PENTACAM EYE SCANNER

It is a camera with a rotation system based on Scheimpflug to perform an analysis of the anterior segment of the eye. You can perform multiple topographic maps of the cornea, capture its thickness, study the anterior chamber of the eyeball, etc.

CAMPIMETER

It values the changes of the view field. It is mainly used for the study of patients with glaucoma, and retinal diseases also, such as retinitis pigmentosa. It is also useful for studying lesions of the visual pathway.

BIOMETER / PACHYMETER US-1800 AND POCKET PACHYMETER II

The biometer is used to measure the different ocular structures and to make a careful calculation of intraocular lenses in patients who must be under cataract surgery. The pachymeter is used to measure the thickness of the cornea, an important data for refractive surgery and glaucoma patients. Both work with ultrasound probes.

VISIONIX

Multi-diagnostic platform that provides in less than one minute data as refraction, corneal topography, aberrometry, intraocular pressure, pachymetry, analysis of the anterior chamber, etc.

VX 35 OR 40

Lensmeters or focimeters (reader and analyzer of ophthalmic lenses) for wavefront technology.

OCT (OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY)

Diagnostic technique based on optical interferometry which allows control and monitoring of retinal pathologies, such as DMAE or glaucoma, or deterioration of anterior segment, such as corneal disorders. It makes a series of images or histological sections of different ocular structures.

RETINOGRAPH OPTOMAP

It allows an ocular retinography (fundus photography) without dilation, as well as working with different filters to assess the health of the retina and optic nerve. It also allows additional tests such as fluorescein angiography and indocyanine green.

ECOGRAPH

Using an optical probe of high frequency ultrasound, produces a two dimensional image to study the internal ocular structures, as well as eye socket, especially in cases where transparent ocular means are not available for routine examination.

SPECULAR MICROSCOPY

Study of endothelial cells of the cornea (innermost layer of corneal tissue) both in quantity and quality (morphology); an endothelial count and a cell hexagonality study are done, and it is important to prepare future surgeries, and to assess the correct physiological functioning of corneal tissue.

IOLMASTER

Optical biometer that allows a very careful calculation of intraocular lenses for cataract surgery. It works by optical interferometry.

See images

VERSION PLATFORM

It is a system of planning and execution of surgical procedures with maximum precision, thanks to a surgical image guidance. It consists of a first part where the preoperative data are collected, analyzed and surgery is planned, and a second part of intraoperatively guidance.

GAZELAB

It is a video-oscillograph equipped with a laser projection system with an infrared camera, that allows the recording of eye movements with great precision, to measure and diagnose complex deviations of the look in all directions.

OCULAR ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY

Diagnostic device of eye diseases, based on the bioelectricity generated by retinal cells. It allows us to:
- Evoked Potencial, to record potential variations in occipital visual cortex caused by a stimulus on the retina.
- Electroretinogram, to record the electrical response of the retinal layers to light stimuli.
- Electrooculography, for recording voltage variations that occur with eye angular movements.

YAG LASER

Laser based on photodisruption of tissue (acts as a distance scalpel), that allows iridotomies (small iridian drilling to communicate the anterior and posterior chamber of the eye in order to avoid a rise in pressure by blocking angle) and capsulotomies (rupture of the posterior lens capsule after cataract surgery).

See images

ARGO LASER

Laser based on a concentrated beam of monochromatic light, Láser basado en un haz de luz monocromático concentrado, which allows tissue photocoagulation of the retina (sealing joint tissues), very important to avoid possible retina detachments, and also eyelash treatments, trabeculoplasty, etc.

See images

EXCIMER LASER

It causes corneal tissue photoablation Provoca una fotoablación del tejido corneal (it removes small micrometric fractions of corneal tissue without damaging surrounding tissue). This allows to modify the shape of the cornea to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, astigmatism and hiperopia.
