  • Axial length
  • Corneal curvature radius
  • Anterior chamber depth
  • Central corneal thickness
  • White-to-white distance
  • Pupil size

The AL-Scan also acts as an imaging system providing high-resolution images of the anterior chamber:

  • Lens image (Scheimpflug) which assists in the evaluation of the severity of the cataract
  • Pupil image which assists in the assessment for multifocal IOL
  • Reflective double mire ring which assists in the detection of an irregular corneal surface.

The AL-Scan also provides an Assist for Toric IOL alignment by allowing a line to be drawn through a prominent vessel or other landmark that can indicate the angle from the steepest meridian.
The AL-Scan can optimise the IOL constants by statistically calculating with the post-operative refractive power. IOL constants optimisation helps to improve post-operative accuracy. The system has 8 IOL calculation formulas incorporated into its software allowing for full IOL power calculations.
