Upgrades to intraop aberrometer enhance surgical feedback
Technology provides continuous, real-time measurements to verify refraction
Another component of the software upgrade addresses astigmatism management.
A toric IOL alignment is provided in the graphical user interface to allow surgeons to identify the correct position of the lens. This is achieved when the user aligns, in real time, the toric IOL with a white line on the screen while simultaneously watching the magnitude of the refractive astigmatism decrease.
For toric IOLs, Dr. Hill said the process represents a net solution, taking into account the toricity and alignment of the lens, the posterior corneal astigmatism, and the anterior cornea.
