The AX1 will provide direct axial length measurement - within a compact, portable, handheld non-contact device. The AX1 utilises a similar form factor to the Occuity PM1 Pachymeter enabling Occuity to accelerate the development of the device.
The AX1 is currently in development and is planned for release in 2023.
Axial length (AXL) has been well established as the critical measurement in studies looking at the progression and control of myopia.
The Occuity AX1 will be the world's first handheld, optical, non-contact meter, capable of directly measuring axial length quickly, easily and safely. The AX1 will provide optometrists with a superb solution for their need to accurately measure axial length to monitor the progression of myopia and provide a valuable tool in monitoring the success of orthokeratology treatment in reducing myopic progression.
The Occuity AX1 Axiometer will retain the same form factor - shape, style and operation - as PM1 Pachymeter – ensuring it offers similar key benefits:
Direct Axial Length Measurement
Accurate, simple and straightforward operation - bypassing need to induce cycloplegia.
Perfect for children who often can struggle with existing desktop devices.
Potential to use at pre-screen, as part of the eye exam or in a school screening environment
Small Footprint - easy implementation in practice
Precision Optical System
The patented optical technology within the Occuity's ophthalmic series of devices uses a tightly focused beam of light to scan the eye. When the focus passes through a surface a bright reflection is seen which allows the meter to know exactly where that surface is. The precision optical system collects these reflections allowing for very precise measurement of structures within the eye.
With our expertise in optics and miniaturisation, Occuity’s proprietary technology ensures that in addition to being accurate, our devices will also be compact and very cost-effective.
