The Anterior Segment is the front part of the eye between the cornea and the iris (the cornea, ciliary body, iris, and lens).
Within the anterior segment, there are two fluid-filled spaces:
- The anterior chamber (between the posterior surfaces of the cornea to the iris)
- The posterior chamber (between the iris and front of the vitreous)
Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography – AS-OCT
The Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography – AS-OCT evaluates and manages the ocular conditions of narrow angles and primary angle closure.
The AS-OCT assesses the patients with narrow or suspicious angles—angles that are not completely wide open. The fact that an AS-OCT can perform scans for those with the angle patients in the dark makes it stand out from the rest.
Anterior Segment Swept Source OCT (SS-OCT)
The SS-OCT combines corneal examination, eye and anterior segment biometry, IOL (Intraocular Lens) calculation, and anterior segment imaging via four different applications. The SS-OCT device delivers high-resolution images of the anterior segment using 1300 nm along with the image depth, at a fast acquisition speed.
The detailed images of the anterior surface allow reliable measurements in the planning of anterior segment surgeries, such as cataract surgery, refractive surgery, and keratoplasty. Furthermore, high-quality images also serve as a diagnostic aid for many anterior segment abnormalities.
Anterior Segment OCT – Optovue
The Anterior Segment OCT – Optovue provides a broad range of applications covering eye care practices. The OCT generates high-resolution three-dimensional images of the retina, cross-sectional optic disc, and anterior segment. The results aid in the diagnosis and management of ocular diseases.
The OCT system includes visual individual retinal layers that dissect from the dense 3D cubes of data. The information provided gives a detailed analysis of the retina for the ophthalmologist to understand the patient better.
