With the introduction of the Barrett Universal II formula, users will get a highly-sophisticated tool to aid their planning with toric intervention.
Harlow, Essex (PRWEB UK) 9 January 2015
Haag-Streit UK (HS-UK), the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard optometry and ophthalmic equipment, is pleased to announce that the Barratt Universal II formula and Toric Calculator are now available for the LENSTAR LS 900 Biometer.
The LENSTAR provides highly-accurate laser optic measurements for every section of the eye, from the cornea to the retina and is the first optical biometer on the market that can measure the thickness of the crystalline lens. The biometer features dual zone keratometry or optional T-Cone topography for precise astigmatism and axis measurement, as well as an on-board toric IOL calculator for sophisticated operation planning.
The new Barrett Universal II formula and Toric Calculator included in EyeSuite IOL and the T-Cone Toric platform respectively, provide the user with one of the best toric IOL prediction methods available on the market. The toric calculator is based on the proven Universal II formula and features dynamic calculation of the lens position for cylinder power transformation to the corneal plane, as well as consideration of the anterior and the posterior corneal curvature for cylinder power and axis calculation.
Sam Laidlaw, HS-UK Product Manager, said, “With the introduction of the Barrett Universal II formula, users will get a highly-sophisticated tool to aid their planning with toric intervention. Users will not only have one of the most advanced calculation methods to hand, but are also able to plan the complete procedure with high-resolution images of their patient’s eye from LENSTAR.”
