Wavefront Aberrometer

The instrument shown in these photos is an aberrometer and the technology is known as “aberrometry”. This is a new technology that allows us to design a scleral lens with enhanced optics that can eliminate vision distortions that many patients experience with their eyeglasses and contact lenses. There are millions of patients around the world who have lost quality vision due to refractive surgery, keratoconus, corneal transplant surgery and corneal disease. who suffer vision defects known as “higher order aberratrions”. or “HOA’s”.

HOA’s are complex vision disorders responsible for patients experiencing ghosting, double vision, starbursts, and halos. Measuring these aberrations cannot be done by simply scanning the anterior surface of the eye. In order to identify and measure these aberrations, the aberrometer seen here is used to send a light into the eye. This light passes through the cornea and the lens of the eye and is reflected back to the retina. The reflected light is then identified and measured by the aberrometer.

Finally, these aberrations (HOA’s) are displayed in 3D on the aberrometer’s computer screen. How light passes through the eye is known as wavefront technology. The resulting aberration profiles are uploaded to a special laboratory that embeds this information into the surface of a highly oxygen permeable scleral lens so that these HOA’s (halos, ghosting, starbursts, double vision) can be eliminated and the patient’s vision improved. This is exciting technology that has proven to be a game changer.
