New Products for Myopia Research
Striatech offers new products for research on Myopia, a chronic progressive eye disease. It is estimated that by 2050, almost 50% of the world population will be myopic. But Myopia also leads to numerous secondary eye diseases that can even lead to blindness.
Journal Club: IR Photorefraction and IR Photokeratometry – Measuring Refractive State and Corneal Curvature in Animals and Humans
It is difficult to measure small eyes of animal models. In this Journal Club, Prof. Frank Schaeffel presents his inventions for IR photorefraction and IR photokeratometry that facilitate such measurements. He focuses on the history, application, advantages, optics, software algorithms and calibration.
Striatech’s Photorefractor can measure the refractive state in alert and moving small laboratory animals within seconds.
