Introduction to the iTrace

Better Design. Better Information. Better Decisions.

As a cataract or refractive surgeon, you know the value of better decisions. Better decisions can mean the difference between a happy patient and an explant. But, you cannot make better decisions without better information. Not only better information, but complete information. And better information is not available without a better design. The iTrace Ray Tracing Wavefront Aberrometer and Corneal Topography gives you a better aberrometer design and better information, so that you can make better decisions. 

The iTrace measures quality of vision and visual function using a fundamental thin beam principle of optical ray tracing, a first in eye care diagnostics.  The iTrace sequentially projects 256 near-infrared laser beams into the eye to measure forward aberrations, processing data point-by-point. This 5-in-1 system provides auto-refraction, corneal topography, ray tracing aberrometry, pupillometry and auto-keratometry, saving time, space and money.

By integrating wavefront aberrometry with corneal topography, the iTrace provides a unique analysis that subtracts corneal from total aberrations in order to isolate the internal aberrations of the eye.  Surgeons benefit from this information when planning surgical procedures such as refractive lensectomies, AK's, Accommodative and Multifocal IOL's and for post-op evaluations.  Additionally, general eye care specialists can use this information to select and recommend the best vision correction treatment. You can also have better information about the patient's optical system's alignment so that you can decide which IOL is best for the patient.
