Advancements in technology have brought about a revolution in the field of ophthalmology. Madurai Eye Center (MEC) has always been at the forefront in deploying the latest technology, be it the use of computerised patient registration in 1993 or artificial intelligence in diabetic retinopathy screening in 2023. State-of-art equipment is not a luxury for the doctor but an essential tool to deliver ‘precision eye care’.
Pentacam Corneal Topography
OCULUS Pentacam® is the gold standard diagnostic tool for anterior segment tomography. It uses Scheimpflug technology to capture images in 2 seconds. The Belin/Ambrósio Enhanced Ectasia Display supports you in the early detection of corneal ectasia. Pentacam measures the cornea with great precision and ensures reliable planning for refractive surgeries, corneal collagen cross-linking, and corneal transplants.
Heidelberg Spectralis OCT
The SPECTRALIS® is a multimodal imaging platform optimized for the posterior segment. It is the most advanced system for imaging the retina and choroid. The various modules like Enhanced Depth Imaging (EDI) for visualising the choroid, Blue-peak Autofluorescence (BAF) to know the retinal pigment epithelial function are path-breaking technologies which have caused a paradigm shift in the management of retinal diseases.
Haag-Streit Lenstar LS900, an optical biometer which provides highly accurate laser optic measurements for every section of the eye from the cornea to the retina, is the first optical biometer that can measure the thickness of the crystalline lens. Optical biometer obtains accurate eyeball measurements, which are used to calculate the power of the intra-ocular lens (IOL) implanted in cataract surgery. At MEC we utilise the Lenstar Biometry system for all cataract surgery packages even for the free camp cases, because we believe in delivering the best visual outcomes for every patient.
Constellation Vision System
Constellation Vision System is the gold standard in vitreoretinal surgery platforms. It is a sophisticated surgical platform which has revolutionised the way vitreoretinal surgery is performed. From IOP control to surgeon-regulated duty cycle the machine has impressive capabilities aiding the surgeon in performing safe vitreo-retinal surgeries.
iCare is the first rebound tonometer introduced to the world. It is handy in clinics for adult and pediatric intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements and for glaucoma screenings in outreach programs. Requiring no drops or specialized training makes IOP measuring quick and easy for screening programs.
Octopus 600, a perimeter that combines both fast screening with the novel pulsar stimulus and standard white-on-white perimetry for follow-up. The instrument is capable of covering the most important stages of disease progression, allowing both for early diagnosis and follow-up. This Swiss tech enables fast screening of glaucoma patients and to detect neurological field defects with greater accuracy.
Fluorescein Angiography is a diagnostic test that uses a special dye (sodium fluorescein) and camera to look at blood flow in the retina and choroid. The dye is injected into the blood vessel and serial images are taken using a special camera. Absence of blood flow/ leakage of dye and other retinal abnormalities are detected using this test.
WHITESTAR SIGNATURE Phacoemulsification System
WHITESTAR SIGNATURE System represents the latest generation of phacoemulsification technology. It combines the safety of Fusion Fluidics with the optimized cavitation of Whitestar technology. Ellips FX Technology allows surgeons to switch between peristaltic and venturi intraoperatively. The system along with Lenstar biometry enables us to deliver excellent cataract surgery outcomes.
