Oculus Pentacam® HR: Partner in achieving perfect vision​

Each surgical procedure must be thoroughly planned. Preoperative examination of each patient is part of that plan. The largest number of preoperative exams are done to the patients that will potentially undergo laser vision correction, cataract surgery, or refractive lens exchange to correct near vision.

One of the machines that helps in this process is Oculus Pentacam® HR.

Accuracy in the first place

In just a few seconds, this machine gives us precise diagnostic data of the whole anterior
segment of the eye. Anterior and posterior corneal curvatures are very important when assessing
candidates for the laser vision correction procedures because corneal thickness is one of the key
factors that need to be included in the final decision about the procedure. Furthermore, the data
from the posterior corneal curvature help with the detection of corneal ectasia, particularly with
keratoconus. The most important aspect is that the machine itself can classify keratoconus just
with the acquired data. All this information can be helpful in taking further steps with the
treatment of ectasia.
The picture resolution with Pentacam® HR is five times higher than the one gotten from the
previous Pentacam® models. This unique feature can be very useful with patient follow-ups after
cataract surgery, refractive lens exchange, and phakic intraocular lens implantation.
It is well known that glaucoma (high intraocular pressure) is directly correlated with corneal
thickness. Pentacam® HR measures the corneal thickness and compares it with the measure
intraocular pressure levels, giving the exact value and compares it with the previous
measurements.
Finally, Pentacam® HR can easily diagnose the density and the type of cataract. This may be of
great importance in preoperative planning of complicated cataracts (old patients, mature
cataracts), and decrease the chance for intraoperative complications.

Bojan Kozomara (Banja Luka, December 30, 1978) is a Doctor of Science, Doctor of Medicine, specialist in ophthalmology, and the director of the special hospital for ophthalmology "Dr. Kozomara" in Banja Luka.

In his hometown, he completed both high school and medical school, and in 2009, he specialized in the field of ophthalmology. In 2021, he became a Doctor of Medical Sciences in the field of ophthalmology, and he honed his profession at the Clinic for Eye Diseases, Military Medical Academy in Belgrade, Serbia, and at the Oculistica Universita "Careggi" Clinic in Florence, Italy. After completing his specialization in Italy, he decided to return to his native Banja Luka and start a private clinic there, which in a very short time became popular and recognizable in the region, as well as in the world.
