Harlow, Essex (PRWEB UK) 25 October 2013
Haag-Streit UK (HS-UK), the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard optometry and ophthalmic equipment, is pleased to announce the launch of the new EyeSuite i126.96.36.199 software for the LENSTAR LS 900 biometer.
The new software boasts some exciting new features, including; the Olsen formula, which features lens thickness measurement as a key parameter for improved refractive outcomes. Olsen uses C-Constant for the calculation of Effective Lens Position (ELP). This concept makes the ELP independent of variations in the K-reading and axial length, and is accurate in all kinds of eyes, thus leading to improved IOL prediction accuracy for all patients.
The cataract penetration capability of LENSTAR has been significantly improved with the introduction of new Dense Cataract Measurement (DCM) mode. It is automatically triggered if there is no axial length after 3 measurements and continues to use all scans taken to create a composite axial length result. Clinical studies have shown an improvement of the non-measurability rate of more than 50%, maintaining, and even improving the quality of axial length measurement.
There has also been an extension to the Shammas No-History formula to prior hyperopic post-refractive patients. This extension is now available as a free upgrade for all LENSTAR users.
The launch of EyeSuite i188.8.131.52 also enables users to upgrade their LENSTAR, at an additional cost, and take advantage of the new T-Cone toric platform.
Sam Laidlaw, HS-UK Product Manager, said, “With the T-Cone attached to the LENSTAR, the cataract surgeon not only gets superior K-readings and axis measurements, but also true Placido Topography maps for corneal curvature, elevation and the image of the Placido-Ring reflections on the eye. With all of these unique and value-adding features, the LENSTAR is ready for all the challenges of modern cataract surgery.”
Combined with T-Cone, the user also receives full access to the new IOL toric planner with EyeSuite. The toric calculator provides the user with an intuitive tool to optimise incision location and IOL rotation in order to achieve minimum residual astigmatism.
