Sonomed A-Scan (U.S.A.)

 
 
Purpose

To assess the axial length of the globe; to calculate IOL power for cataract surgery and also to diagnose and follow-up Axial Myopia (Short Sight).

Can be used as a diagnostic tool to assess vitreous opacities, foreign bodies, coats of the eye and echo-texture of lesions.

Assess IOL power pre-operatively in surgery for cataract.

 
Advantages

Proper IOL power assessment possible pre-operatively.

Attachment of Immersion tool raises the accuracy of the axial length measurements. Especially useful in Premium IOLs where accurate IOL Power calculations are mandatory.

In the absence of B-scan posterior segment assessment possible.

MEH uses 2 different A-Scans for error free IOL Power calculations.
