Camera Applications in Ophthalmology

Sensitivity, reproducibility, exact color reproduction and the highest image quality with optimal resolution and speed – all of these are requirements for the imaging component for imaging-based technologies for eye diagnosis and therapy. Application examples are examinations of the anterior and posterior section of the eye using a slit lamp as well as the detailed representation of the fundus with the help of a fundus or OCT camera. There are also applications in modern ophthalmic surgery such as cataract surgery.

Functional Diagnostics

Functional Diagnostics

Digital camera technology forms the basis of many methods for inspecting and diagnosing the eye. These include, among others, fundus copy, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and slit lamp microscopy. Basler cameras offer powerful technology for all applications and yield precise diagnostics. For example, they are used as fundus or OCT cameras. Their digital image capture simplifies documentation, monitoring the course of a disease and the exchange of several doctors with each other.

Therapeutic Methods

In Germany alone, more than 150,000 people opt for laser eye treatment every year. The prospects of being able to live without glasses and contact lenses led to a strong increase in the use of laser procedures, e.g. for the correction of myopia or hyperopia as well as for glaucoma or cataract surgery. In these systems, Basler cameras offer highly reliable support for diagnostics, laser treatment or surgery, as well as progress monitoring.

Color Calibration in Medical Technology

In ophthalmology, images – for example of the retina – contribute to the diagnostic process. Color reproduction is important to distinguish between healthy and pathological structures. Color fidelity is therefore essential.
