The IOLMaster performs laser biometry which is used to calculate intraocular lens powers to be implanted during cataract surgery. Laser biometry measures the length of the eye with a laser rather than using ultrasound increasing the accuracy by a factor of 10. Premium IOLs work best when the refractive error is minimal and the IOLMaster helps achieve that goal.

 


 

The Acrysof Toric IOL for those patients with corneal astigmatism that want to improve their uncorrected distance vision

 

 

The Acysor Restor lens for presbyopia provides excellent uncorrected near vision after cataract surgery but does carry some risk of night vision disturbances such as glare and haloes.


The Crystalens Accommodating IOL, the premium IOL for cataract surgery for those patients who want to reduce their dependence on glasses for near vision. The Crystalens has shown to be best for intermediate range as compared to other intraocular lenses for presyopia.

The IOLmaster represents the best technology for measurements to be used in lens calculations to select the proper lens power for implantation during cataract surgery. To obtain highly precise measurement data, the IOLMaster uses Partial Coherence Interferometry (PCI) technology which is laser technology. In the past, axial measurements of the eye were obtained utilizing ultrasound technolgy which uses sound waves to make the measurements. Lasers offer a whole level of increased accuracy for taking the axial measurements of the eye which are critical in selecting the lens power of the implants used in cataract surgery. Ultrasound technology is still used if the catarct is too dense for laser measurement, but in those cases the technicians at Liva Eye center perform ultrasound using a special technique called immersion ultrasound which increases the accuracy over standard contact ultrasound.
