“I have been using the PalmScan for the past few months with the immersion a-scan unit and pachymetry with the 50 MHZ probe.
The axial length measurements of the PalmScan immersion are comparable with the IOL Master. For the calculations of the premium IOL, I measure everyone with the IOL Master and the PalmScan and use the ACD and lens thickness from the PalmScan.
I use the 50 MHZ pachymetry probe for central and peripheral measurements of corneal thickness. This probe easily measures the peripheral corneal thickness unlike a 10 MHZ pachymetry probe. There is a built in program for limbal relaxing incision using the Nichamin NAPA nomogram.
PalmScan is very easy to use and is comparable to the IOL Master for axial length and is more accurate for the ACD and lens thickness needed for calculation with Holladay II. A big plus is the portability.”
