Immersion A-Scan Biometry
Immersion A-scan biometry is a kind of diagnostic test that is commonly used in ophthalmology. It helps ophthalmologists determine the length of the eye, which is important for treating common eye diseases like cataract. This length calculation helps determine the intraocular lens that will perfectly fit the eye. Immersion biometry is used to conduct an A-scan to measure the axial length of an eyeball.
The traditional method of immersion biometry requires direct intrusion with the eyeball. However, now thanks to medical advancements and research there is a safe device that can provide accurate results without having to insert anything in the eyeball. The PalmScan A-Scan from Micro Medical Devices (MMD) is revolutionizing the way A-scans are done.
