Corneal Aberrometry

Corneal aberrometry is used prior to custom ablation in order to measure the way light travels through your entire optical pathway, and compares it to the way light travels through an optically perfect eye. By bouncing the light off your retina and measuring the imperfections of your eye, the aberrometer creates a three dimensional map of your cornea. This unique map is then used for pre-operative screening to design a refractive procedure specifically for you. On surgery day, the information from the map is transferred electronically to the laser, enabling your provider to customize a laser vision procedure to your unique needs.
