Speaker describes new device for measuring corneal biomechanical strength

BOSTON — Avedro is developing a new initiative, Brillouin spectroscopy, which would enable surgeons to create a 3-D strength map of the cornea, a speaker here said. “What we want this for is treatment planning for corneal collagen cross-linking,” David Muller, PhD, president and CEO of Avedro, told attendees at the Ophthalmology Innovation Summit. “It’s built to take information from other mapping systems, combine them and filter them through a computational engine to pump out a map that a surgeon can use to assess an eye’s corneal biomechanical strength.” Muller (Read more...)
