IOL Master 5.0
The IOL Master is the most sophisticated and accurate optical instrument used in preparing for cataract surgery. The IOL master uses partial coherence interferometry to quickly and accurately measure the eye and to provide the physician with information such as: the length of the eye, the curvature of the corneal surface and anterior chamber depth. These measurements make it possible to choose the most appropriate lens for each patient.
The IOL Master has proven to be five times more accurate than traditional technologies such as ultrasound or (ASCAN). Although, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) does not cover IOL master examinations, we have purchased the technology for our patients and for those who are considering a Premium IOL it is recommended they get it.
