The Zeiss IOL Master®
The Zeiss IOL Master® is a high-precision measurement tool that is used to measure the axis length, corneal curvature and the anterior chamber depth of the eye. The measurements obtained provide physicians with the information needed in the selection of the right IOL to be used for the patient undergoing cataract surgery.
Approved by the FDA in 2000, the Zeiss IOL Master has proven to be five times more accurate than traditional IOL-fitting technologies. The IOL Master takes less time than an ultrasound, the traditional form of measurment which requires the use of anesthesia. The IOL Master does not come in contact with the patient's eye so there is no need for anesthetic eye drops.
