The Orbscan 11 (the one at the eye centre is just one out of 200 in the world) is a highly sophisticated diagnostics platform, which offers the surgeon the best planning tools for a procedure without any surprises.

This scanner is also being used by ophthalmic consultants to unveil certain serious eye defects, which could not be assessed before the Orbscan's arrival.
