"Ocular surface condition and dry eye is a critical assessment. I use the placido disc map of the OPD III to illustrate patients' level of dry eye: if the rings are not perfectly round, a little wobbly, irregular, broken up, or have dark spots on the corneal surface. I show my patients and let them know they have a pre-existing disease called dry eye syndrome that will not be affected by cataract surgery – that this disease process may indeed get worse over time so we can treat that separately. I distinctly want them to know that cataract surgery did not give them dry eye. Patients are able to understand for the fi rst time the irregularities of their tear fi lm and ocular surface condition." The OPD-Scan III provides integrated wavefront aberrometry and corneal assessment with topography, pupillometry, autorefraction and keratometry. In just 10 seconds, per eye, over 20 diagnostic metrics are integrated.
