The Standard in Corneal Topography

Keratron Scout, in its three configurations - portable, fixed, intraoperative – is a compact, transportable and practical device. It adds flexibility of use to the precision, high repeatability and the capacity to highlight the slightest details, characteristics that have made Keratron™ the topographer of reference in the sector.

The exclusive design of the “mires cone” with EPCS (Eye Position Control System) makes Keratron Scout fully adaptable to the most complex cases, ensuring the best efficiency and a lower number of repeated attempts.

The instrument becomes portable, inserting a special power supply module at the base and, thanks to the headrest device and the repeatability control, it allows easy acquisition and maximum reliability measurements.

The Keratron ™ Scout, thanks to its integrated display, allows full control during the image acquisition process and a quick transfer of the same to a PC.

Main Functions

  • Wide Range Corneal Topography
  • Corneal Aberrometry
  • Pupillometry
  • Non-invasive Break-up Time

Keratron™ Scout, with integrated display, offers full control during the process of image acquisition and enables a rapid transfer of these to the PC.
