ALCON Wavelight Vario Topolyzer
The Vario Topolyzer is an advanced corneal topographer that is used in Contoura LASIK to identify and correct for any irregularities in the cornea. This can help to improve vision quality and reduce the risk of glare, halos, and other vision problems.
The Vario Topolyzer maps the surface of the cornea in great detail, capturing up to 88,000 data points. This information is then used by the topography-guided laser (ALCON EX500) to create a customized treatment plan for each patient to correct the patient’s refractive error which can help to achieve better vision results while minimizing the risk of side effects.
Detailed Corneal Imaging: – The Vario Topolyzer is a highly accurate device that can map the surface of the cornea in great detail, capturing up to 88,000+ data points. This can help to ensure that the patient receives the most precise custom treatment plan.
- Placido Disk Technology: The Vario Topolyzer is a non-contact device, which means that it does not touch the eye. The placido disc is a series of concentric circles that are projected onto the cornea. The Topolyzer measures the way that the light reflected from the cornea is distorted by the irregularities in the cornea.
- Comprehensive Data Analysis: The system software provides comprehensive data analysis including Zernike analysis, tangential maps, axial maps, and refractive maps.
- Reliable: The Vario Topolyzer is a reliable device that has been used in millions of LASIK procedures. This means that patients can be confident that they are receiving a high-quality treatment.
