The Zeiss ATLAS 995 Topographer is a medical device used in ophthalmology to map the corneal surface of the eye. The device uses advanced technology to provide precise measurements of the cornea, which can help ophthalmologists diagnose and manage a range of eye conditions.
The ATLAS 995 Topographer uses Placido disc technology to capture multiple images of the cornea and create a three-dimensional map of its surface. The device uses a rotating cone-shaped mirror with a series of concentric rings to project a pattern of light onto the cornea. The reflected light is captured by a camera and analyzed by software to create a detailed map of the corneal surface.
The device is commonly used in pre-operative planning for refractive surgery, such as LASIK, as well as for diagnosis and monitoring of corneal conditions, such as keratoconus and corneal dystrophies. The information obtained from the ATLAS 995 Topographer is valuable in determining the precise shape and characteristics of the cornea, which can aid in the selection of appropriate treatment options and the assessment of treatment outcomes.

5 Best Things:
- High-Resolution Imaging: The Zeiss ATLAS 995 Topographer provides high-resolution imaging that allows for detailed examination of the cornea. This helps to identify any irregularities or abnormalities in the corneal surface, which can be important for diagnosis and treatment planning.
- Automatic Alignment and Focusing: The device uses automatic alignment and focusing to ensure accurate measurements and reduce the risk of operator error. This makes the testing process faster and more efficient.
- Ergonomic Design: The Zeiss ATLAS 995 Topographer is designed with patient comfort in mind. It has a soft headrest and chinrest, and a compact design that helps to reduce anxiety and improve patient compliance.
- Multiple Analysis and Display Modes: The device offers a variety of analysis and display modes, including axial and tangential curvature maps, refractive power maps, and elevation maps. This allows ophthalmologists to choose the mode that is best suited for their specific needs.
- Pre-Operative Planning for Refractive Surgery: The Zeiss ATLAS 995 Topographer is commonly used in pre-operative planning for refractive surgery, such as LASIK. The information obtained from the device helps to determine the precise shape and characteristics of the cornea, which is important for selecting appropriate treatment options and assessing treatment outcomes.
