Advanced industrial design and high miniaturisation technology has resulted in a practical and manageable unit which ensures the same features of precision and reliability that have made Keratron the reference topographer in the field.

Keratron Scout's operability can be adapted to each user's requirements through a variety of options:

  • On a slit lamp by means of a slide adaptor plugged in the tonometer hole, the operator can use the joystick of the lamp to precisely align the instrument with the patient's eye. The Scout can be set in a lateral position with the completely lengthened slide to use the slit lamp freely.
  • In replacement of the keratometer a joystick unit can be situated giving the operator full control over patient and topographer alignment. Alternatively, if space permits, an electric table can be used to house the joystick and Scout topographer. This gives the operator the freedom to situate the equipment where they please.
  • By inserting a battery power supply module into its base the Scout becomes portable. Measurements are easy to acquire and reliable thanks to the headrest device and the "repeatability check" feature.
  • The intra-operative weight-balanced arm ensures easy alignment of a reclining patient's eye even if the patient is not able to fixate. The degrees of movement, the display controls and software features like the "Move axis" make intra-operative use easy for any operator. The disposable covers guarantee sterility of the operating field and surgeon.
