Within a mere 2 seconds the Pentacam® AXL supplies you with precise diagnostic data on the entire anterior eye segment. In addition to anterior segment tomography the Pentacam® AXL has integrated axial length measurement, a feature which allows you to make accurate IOL calculations. Automatic measurement activation with quality test guarantees fast, reproducible and delegable measurements.
The Pentacam® AXL comes with an extensive basic software package which can be extended according to your needs to include further optional software packages and modules.

3D pIOL Simulation and Aging Prediction
- Pre-surgical planning of an iris-supported phakic anterior chamber lens
- Simulation of the post-operative position of the phakic anterior chamber lens
- Simulation of age-related lens growth and the position of the anterior chamber lens resulting from this
The examiner enters the data on the patient's subjective refraction. Depending on the type of lens in question, the software calculates the necessary refractive power of the pIOL. The examiner selects a phakic IOL from the current database accordingly. The position of this pIOL in the anterior chamber is calculated in 3D and displayed in Scheimpflug images. The minimal distances between the phakic IOL and the crystalline lens as well as between the pIOL and the endothelium are calculated automatically and represented both in colour and numerically. This enables the examiner to give the patient visual information and facilitates patient selection.
