orbscan-ocular-response-analyzer.jpg Lasik and laser eye surgery is performed to correct visual problems like myopia. However the procedure is not suitable, for people having thin and irregular cornea. If Lasik procedure is done without knowing that cornea is weak, it might lead to a disease called keratoconus, which causes bulging of eye and distorted vision.

Orbscan’s ocular response analyzer is a new technology which helps doctors detect the strength of cornea. This enables them to decide upon whether the patient can undergo lasik or not. Right now, there are only 60 Orbscan machines which have ocular response analyzer available in the US. The price of Orbscan is around $299 and is usually done before the lasik procedure.
