Optimeyes 1.0

The OptimeyesTM software predicts the influence of physical interventions in the cornea in a patient-specific way, thus allowing it to simulate and evaluate treatment results in the intervention planning phase.

Optimeyes 1.0 will be launched as a class IIb medical device in Q4/2017

Astigmatism management

Arcuate Keratotomy is a valuable treatment method, and has been used in astigmatism management for small up to moderate cylinder values (0.5D to 3.0D) for many years. It's nomogram-based predictability, however, has never been satisfactory.

Optimeyes 1.0

This has now been solved in the Optimeyes™ software. Optimizing the incision parameters to the individual cornea by accounting for age, preoperative astigmatism, central-, and paracentral curvature, full pachymetry, and corneal biomechanical characteristics is now possible. The OptimeyesTM arcuate keratotomy planning and optimization module features two different operation modes: Prediction and Optimization. Prediction calculates the post-surgery cornea, based on given AK parameters. Optimization calculates the optimal surgery parameters for the individual patient:

  • optical zone
  • incision length
  • incision depth
  • orientation

The software knows symmetric incisions, one sided incisions, anterior penetrating and intrastromal incisions. Furthermore, incisions can be planned orthogonal to the patient bed, or orthogonal to the corneal surface.

Data import, comparison and difference maps

Besides surgery planning, the OptimeyesTM software is capable of comparing different measurements and predictions side-by-side or as difference maps.

Thereby, the measurements may come from the same or from a different cornea measurement system. Currently supported devices are:

  • Pentacam / Pentacam HR by Oculus Optikgeräte GmbH, Germany
  • Galilei G2 / G4 / G6 by Ziemer Ophthalmology, Switzerland

Core technology of the OptimeyesTM software is a personalizable virtual human eye, capable of predicting shape changes upon any type of physical interference. Among others, this virtual model can be used to predict the outcome of arcuate keratotomy relaxing incision surgery for individual patients.

 

Important Safety Information

Arcuate Keratotomy surgery is frequently performed and is a safe procedure for astigmatism management today. However, make sure to discuss your medical history and medication use with your doctor prior to scheduling a surgery. 

Optimeyes 1.0 is a prescription medical device that can only be used by eye care professionals. Only a trained eye care professional can determine if an Optimeyes planned Arcuate Keratotomy surgery is appropriate for your condition.
