Abbott Medical Optics’ iDesign Advanced WaveScan Studio Aberrometer has been awarded CE Mark. The device is a diagnostic tool used to map and assess corneal aberrations in the eye for wavefront-guided LASIK procedures. By making a “blueprint”, the device is able to map out the cornea with its aberrations and set out a treatment plan, which is custom-based per patient and computer-driven.
The device provides precise alignment for accurate wavefront measurements and its ability to map highly aberrated corneas potentially expands the number of possible patients that may qualify for the procedure. The device is to have more user-friendly features for physicians to promote ease of use.
Studies in the United States are currently under way.
