Aqueous Flare/Cell Meters, Laser

Definition : Ophthalmic instruments designed to measure aqueous flare (i.e., protein concentration) and the number of cells in the aqueous humor. These instruments usually consist of a computerized unit with a low-power laser (e.g., He:Ne, diode) as a light source, a slit-lamp microscope, photo-multipliers, and dedicated software. Aqueous flare/cell meters measure the light scattered from the protein and cells in the aqueous humor using a photo-multiplier and typically analyze the results using a personal computer; they are used mainly to assess anterior chamber inflammation.
