With the G3, Reichert’s Ocular Response Analyzer just keeps getting better.
Reichert’s website explains:
“Make a more confident glaucoma risk assessment with Corneal Hysteresis.”
Ocular Response Analyzer® (ORA) is the only device that measures IOP with Corneal Hysteresis (CH), a superior predictor of glaucoma progression.
CH is an indication of the biomechanical properties of the cornea, which differ from geometrical attributes such as thickness or topography.
Studies have shown that CH measurements were significantly associated with risk of glaucoma progression. Eyes with lower CH had faster rates of visual field loss than those with higher CH.
In addition, Ocular Response Analyzer provides Corneal Compensated Intraocular Pressure (IOPcc), a better indication of the true pressure, proven to be less influenced by corneal properties than Goldmann or other methods of tonometry, according to Reichert.
