As part of a medical evaluation of your eye, your doctor will review the health of your optic nerve, retina, and blood vessels. Photodocumention is very important in the management of systemic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, as well as ocular side effects of many common medications. Eye diseases like macular degeneration and glaucoma can be properly monitored to help maximize our most precious gift of sight.
Tonometers are used to measure Intraocular Pressure (IOP) as a routine part of diagnosing and managing the 2nd leading cause of blindness in the world, glaucoma. However, traditional methods of tonometry, including the Goldmann Applanation Tonometer, are significantly affected by corneal properties, compromising the accuracy of their IOP measurements. The 7CR incorporates the patented bi-directional applanation technology, first used in the revolutionary Reichert Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA), to quantify the biomechanical properties of the cornea. This in turn permits the determination of Corneal Compensated Intraocular Pressure (IOPcc). IOPcc provides clinicians with a better understanding of patient tonometry values, enhancing their ability to make critical diagnosis and treatment decisions.
