”Very clever and very accurate
It does it all with a vector analysis feature, a surgeon adjustable nomogram and a very clever LaPlace calculation that takes into account corneal rigidity based on IOP. The only down side is that you have to have a blade with a micrometer adjustment for depth.
Our results so far have been outstanding.”

I thought I would let you know that I bought a PalmScan a year ago for use in the refugee camps on the Thailand /Burmese border where we conduct regular “eyecamps”. The conditions look primitive but we have been extremely pleased with the performance of the PalmScan. It has stood up to the conditions and is so easily moved from one location to another. With the immersion mode it is easy to teach local workers to perform accurate biometry. For your interest I attach a photo of my colleague using it.

“We have really enjoyed our unit. It works great. As a referral practice, it is nice to see that our referring doctors are impressed by the technology as well.”

“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.”

“I wanted a Pachymeter and A-Scan. The AP 2000 does both exceptionally well. It is very easy to use in both modes. The accuracy of the immersion A-Scan continues to amaze me. I absolutely love it.”
