Topcon KR 8000PA is a “3 in 1” equipment including also topography and color mapping software
Commercialized by ESSILOR AKRC500 under the name of AKRC500 or AKR500 Cornea and also manufactures and commercialized by the japanese Topcon under the name of TOPCON KR 8000 PA.
Topcon is a leader in the eyecare field. Now, he offers the most advanced technology that provides more and more significant operational conveniences and totally reliable diagnostic results in AKRefractometry.
Topcon KR 8000PA also features a highly sophisticated CORNEAL mapping System.
Operational conveniences supported by Advanced technology
Morever, the KR 8000PA features superior handling and multi-functionality in a compact design. So, it offers you the most relaible and accurate keratometry values by making use of Placido rings. In addition, you’ll find a sophisticated measurement principle, using data coming from measurement points on human cornea.
This allows you a Mapping/ Overlay thanks to an accurate refraction and keratometry measurements. It also displays corneal mapping very quickly and even overlays the mapping output onto the anterior segment by a single touch.
But also a Corneal Irregularity Detection using Placido ring projected on the cornea will be sort of distorted. However, if the irregularity is not substantial, it will not be noticeable. So, KR-8000PA detects corneal irregularity like irregular astigmatism and gives a marking to attract the operator’s attention.
Therefore, with this AKR, wider area of diameter 1.5mm to 9.2mm can be measured using 10 Placido rings.
Thus , based on the mapping data, it advices the base curvature for the contact lenses adapators. And also it reconstructs corneal shape from mapping data of the whole cornea obtained by the projected placido rings. Thereby, the internal soft calculates the radius of curvatureof a circle consisting of 3 points.
Advanced Ophtalmic technology inside the multifunctional KR-8000PA
Thanks to KR 8000PA, you have a 3in1 machine: it provides you with the functions of an auto-refractometer, auto-keratometer and even a mapping function in a single compact and designed instrument.
