Specular Microscope

Specular Microscope

Specular Microscopy plays a significant role in evaluating the health of the cornea. The Specular Microscope is unlike any other microscope. It is used to evaluate the cells comprising the back surface of the cornea, the endothelium. With aging, trauma, disease and surgery, the endothelial cells can become compromised. The endothelial cells pump oxygen into the cornea. These cells don’t replicate. One they die, new cells are not created to take their place. These cells are responsible for the cornea maintaining its transparency. This instrument allows us to detect any disorders of the corneal endothelium in the earliest stages.

The Specular Microscope allows the cells of the endothelial layer to be examined in detail.

Blurred Vision, Burning Eyes: This Is a Lasik Success?

EyePrint Pro

EyePrintPro technology creates a scleral lens based on a mold of the cornea. The molding is accurate to 1 or 2 microns and fits perfectly because it exactly mirrors the irregularities of the individual corneal surface. The technology is well suited for post-Lasik, Keratoconus, RK, eye injury, and corneal transplant patients. Read More in this PDF about EyePrintPro Scleral Lens Technology
