What Is Artemis?
Mr Glenn Carp – “The Artemis is an ultrasound machine which is able to measure the corneal thickness but not only the entire corneal thickness, the different individual layers of the cornea as well. The Artemis was designed approximately fifteen years ago by a team at Cornell University of which Profession Dan Reinstein was a member and we have managed to use the Artemis over many, many years now, both in terms of helping us to ascertain patients’ suitability for surgery, but also to ascertain suitability for enhancing surgery and also to help us in complex repair work.”
Artemis Explained Further…
Our surgeons work with the most advanced and accurate device to perform pachymetry, which is the Artemis™ VHF digital ultrasound. This measures corneal thickness more accurately than either the Orbscan or hand-held ultrasound machines. It produces a 3D image, which means it detects the thinnest point with great accuracy, and displays a profile of the depth of your cornea. This technology is currently only available in a handful of clinics around the world.
