Intraocular Lens Calculation
In cataract surgery, an intraocular lens is implanted with characteristics that are specific to each patient's condition. A study must be made to determine the power of the lens that is to be implanted, called Intraocular Lens Calculation. Carrying out this study under the right conditions and with proper equipment is essential for the success of the surgery.
Perimetry or computerized campimetry is a computer-assisted study that analyzes and quantifies the sensitivity of the retina to different luminous stimuli that vary in intensity, size and location.
Using this procedure it is possible to assess the patient's visual field, detect early alterations and diagnose diseases of the retina, the optic nerve and visual pathway. Of fundamental importance for the diagnosis and follow-up of patients with glaucoma, computerized perimetry allows us to determine whether a treatment is being effective in arresting damage to the optic nerve, among other things
Corneal topography is a computerized examination that maps the shape and thickness of the cornea. This examination has several different uses. In the first place, it can be used to detect diseases such as keratoconus while still in its early stages and make a treatment plan. It also allows us to determine if a patient is a candidate for laser refractive surgery.
The precise objective of ocular ultrasound is defining the status of the posterior segment of the eye when the ocular media are opaque.
This procedure is vital before carrying out different surgical procedures, especially cataract surgery.
Is carried out using anesthetic drops, to measure corneal thickness for laser surgery.
Autorefraction is a study that is used as a support for a complete optometric examination, or in cases where a fairly accurate approximation of the refractive error of a given patient is needed quickly.
OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography)
Consists of a non-invasive study that helps us measure the thickness of the macula, and assess damage to the optic nerve.
