Specialists consider this software to be a very valuable tool for their profession.
ATLAS employs an alignment system called "Cone-of-Focus" that eliminates errors as much as possible. It uses a state-of-the-art algorithm to generate accurate topographic maps for each patient. And it is especially useful for studying corneal aberrations.
With an infrared light, the system captures data without producing miosis in the patient's eye, which is very important for correctly planning the ablation zone. In addition, the ATLAS compact system offers important advances in software for corneal typography, setting new standards for diagnostic, refractive, surgical, and contact lens needs.
The patient should suspend the use of hard contact or gas permeable lenses at least 15 days prior to the examination, and the use of soft contact lenses should be suspended at least five days prior to the examination.
