At Contact Lens & EyeCare Gallery, we are proud to announce our newest piece of technology, the Konan Specular Microscope. Konan has created an instrument that is simple and easy to use and also very informational for both doctor and patient. This state-of-the-art technology evaluates the endothelium of your cornea, non-invasive, totally free of any discomfort, and extremely quick. The microscope captures an image of your endothelium and allows the doctor to analyze the appearance of the cells. If the screening indicates early endothelial damage, a more detailed examination of the endothelium may be indicated to provide the best possible treatment.
Your cornea is your window to the world. It is the clear outer layer of the eye and is the most important focusing element of the visual system. Endothelial damage can be caused by eye injuries, certain diseases such as diabetes and glaucoma, and eye surgeries. In addition, external factors such as contact lens wear can also lead to changes in the structure and function of the endothelium.
Risk factors include:
- Contact lens wear
- Refractive surgery
- Cataract surgery
- Dry Eye
- Prescription eye drops
The i-Terminal by Zeiss combines a new level of fitting and measurement precision with enhanced patient consultation resulting in increased progressive lens performance and increased customer satisfaction.
