Wavefront technology, or aberrometry, measures the way light passes through the cornea and the crystalline lens, which are the refractive (light focusing) components of the eye. Distortions that occur as light travels through the eye are called aberrations, representing specific vision errors (All About (R) Vision). Wavefront allows ophthalmologists to diagnose rarer conditions, as well as those more common, resulting in more accurate management choices.
This text and atlas is a concise guide to aberrations and wavefront technology. Divided into four sections, the book begins with an introduction, and discussion on statistics and clinical research. The following section provides an overview of eye aberrations, then in depth detail on wavefront technology and its uses.
A section on clinical cases describes aberrometry in more complex situations and the final part provides an atlas of basic wavefront images.
Edited by Roberto Pinelli from Istituto Laser Microchirugia Oculare, Brescia, this useful handbook includes more than 120 photographs, graphical images and illustrations.
