Pentacam The Gold Standard in Anterior Segment Tomography

Manufacturer:OCULUS Optikgeräte GmbH, Germany


View all products of this manufacturer

Equipped with an automatically rotating Scheimpflug camera the Pentacam performs a complete measurement of the anterior eye segment in less than 2 seconds. A precise analysis of the central cornea is carried out in the process. During measurement extraneous eye movements are detected with a second pupil camera and automatically corrected during the calculation process. The software analysis and evaluates all the data acquired. These data then provide the basis for a three dimensional model of the complete anterior eye segment.

The Pentacam analysis the entire cornea, anterior chamber and crystalline lens. This includes an objective determination of the central radii, corneal asphericity, various colored maps of curvature and elevation, chamber angle, chamber volume and chamber elevation as well as lens transparency. Tomography shows the individual levels of the anterior eye segment in a freely rotating model. Measurement is noncontact and entirely agreeable to the patient. OCULUS has implemented a DICOM interface for the Pentacam.

The Pentacam is available in two different models:

  • Pentacam
