Scheimpflug camera

The “Scheimpflug cameras” are instruments that use two cameras: one fixed (central) and one rotating (Peripheral).

The central camera is assigned to the pupillary evaluation (measurement, position and control of fixation of the patient); while, the peripheral camera captures images of the entire front segment of the eye (up to the back face of the crystalline lens) which, after being processed by a software, are represented by maps color.

The advantage of this instrument is the possibility of also measuring the posterior corneal surface through the capture of over 25,000 points; therefore, it provides a complete analysis of the corneal structure with its pachymetry (total corneal thickness).
