Do you really know what biomechanical properties are?
And what it has to do with the cornea?
Watch our video to find out in only 3 minutes!
By combining tomographic data from the Pentacam® examination with biomechanical data from the Corvis® ST, you are able to further improve sensitivity and specificity in the detection of patients with a significant risk for developing ectasia after refractive surgery.
Take care of more patients with greater safety!
The recordings of the OCULUS lunch symposium at ESCRS 2017 are available.

This publication is about the clinical validation of the Tomographic Biomechanical Index (TBI). On a database of more than 800 eyes, it is proven that the TBI provides higher accuracy in detecting ectasia than all other methods including corneal topography, corneal tomography and biomechanical analysis.Download
