The OCULUS Keratograph 5M
The OCULUS Keratograph 5M is an advanced corneal topographer with a built-in real keratometer and a color camera optimized for external imaging. Unique features include examining the meibomian glands, non-invasive tear film break-up time and the tear meniscus height measurement and evaluating the lipid layer.
This state-of-the-art, non-invasive equipment allows our doctors to diagnose and manage ocular surface disease and dry eyes like never before. We are able to see our patients’ tear film and analyze their Meibomian glands, which are responsible for the tear lipid (oil) layer.
