Ocular Response Analyser — a New Diagnostic Tool to Measure Corneal Biomechanical Properties and Intraocular Pressure
Corneal biomechanical properties have been known to influence the outcome of ocular measurements and procedures for a wide range of ocular diseases. The assessment of corneal biomechanical properties has been a challenge and, for this reason, measurement of the geographical parameters of the cornea, namely corneal thickness and topography, has formed the mainstay of understanding the basis of various ocular pathologies. A newly marketed instrument, the Reichert ocular response analyser has been developed to improve the accuracy of intraocular pressure measurement by uniquely measuring and integrating corneal biomechanical data into its intraocular pressure estimates.
