Understanding wavefront aberrometry can seem overwhelming, but it does not have to be! You can learn a great deal about your patient’s vision by knowing what visual symptoms are caused by particular higher order aberrations (those that cannot be treated with conventional glasses or contacts). And the iTrace can tell you whether the aberrations are coming from the cornea or the lens, so you can treat the patient’s complaints at their source.
Using Ray Tracing technology, the iTrace measures where 256 individual and consecutive light rays enter the pupil and land on the retina. From this, the iTrace calculates the higher order aberration and refraction data.
Using the unique iTrace lenticular aberration analysis, surgeons can make better decisions from better information.
