Wavefront Aberrometers Market Analysis | United States | 2017-2023 | MedCore
Wavefront aberrometry is used for measuring the total refractive power of the eye. A wavefront represents the quality of light passing through the eye. Factors that affect a wavefront are optical elements such as lenses or the cornea of the eye. Aberrometry provides detailed information about the visual performance and refractive power of the eye. Wavefront aberrometers can detect errors including myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Aberrometry is especially useful for higher-order refractive errors and lenticular changes that cannot ordinarily be detected by routine ophthalmic exams. These include spherical and coma aberrations, which cause halos or comet-like streaks around light foci.

The wavefront aberrometer market is expected to grow over the forecast period. Wavefront aberrometers are sometimes associated with excimer laser systems, which are used for refractive surgery. As a result, the market for wavefront aberrometers is somewhat dependent on the number of laser eye surgeries. However, wavefront aberrometry is increasingly being used during the planning phases of cataract surgery.
