The main focus at the Oculus booth at ESCRS in Paris was its Pentacam solution for anterior segment tomography, which analyses the entire cornea, anterior chamber and crystalline lens.

This instrument is equipped with an automatically rotating Scheimpflug camera allowing a complete measurement of the anterior eye to be taken in less than two seconds. The Pentacam can produce this measurement in a short time but also reportedly performs a precise analysis of the central cornea during the process. Additionally, any extraneous eye movements are detected with a second pupil camera and automatically corrected during the calculation procedure. The software analyses and evaluates the data acquired, which in turn provides the basis for the three-dimensional mode of the complete anterior eye segment.
