Covid-19 Impact On Wavefront Aberrometers Market 2020 Update Fast Change Strategies by 2027

A wavefront aberrometer is a diagnostic device which is used for measuring the total refractive aberrations of the eye. The wavefront aberrometers are widely used in laser eye surgery for the obtaining high accuracy. It is used for the measurement of every variation that occurs in the eye from cornea to the retina. The wavefront aberrometer provides detailed information about the refractive power and visual performance of the eye. A wavefront signifies the quality of the light that is passing through the eye. Different distortions that occur when light travels through the eye are commonly known as specific vision errors.

The wavefront aberrometers are used for the diagnosis of both lower and higher order of vision errors. These errors include coma and spherical aberrations which is the main cause of comet and halos like streak around light foci. Usually wavefront passes through the opening in the front of the pupil for measuring pupil diameter; beam of light is projected into the eye and is reflected back by the retina and further captured by aberrometer. However, by comparing the shape of the captured wavefront with preprogramed wavefront, the wavefront of the eye is obtained which is popularly known as an optical fingerprint. Detection of various vision errors including astigmatism, hyperopia and myopia is done by wavefront aberrometers.
