The Zeiss i-Profiler eye measuring system analyses distortions within the eye with extreme precision. The system’s Wavefront images, developed on laser eye treatment technology, measures the cornea shape in fine detail.
The machine projects a light wave into the eye, passing through cornea, pupil, lens, vitreous jelly and reaches the retina at the back of the eye where the images are focussed. The light then reflects back to the machine which is able to detect and graphically represent what has happened to the light wave as a result of distortion of the eye system.
Benefits of i-Profiler Eye Distortion Measurement
The i-Profiler will identify if the eye’s irregularities. These distortions, known as high order aberrations are not uncommon and in fact are present in 60 – 70%. For most people it is not a problem and requires no action.
Having identified and measured high order aberrations, the i-Profiler indicates whether the distortions are sufficiently significant to recommend the use of spectacles incorporating an additional correctional element – this is known as i-Scription.
If you have distortion of the cornea, spectacles could improve several conditions, prime amongst these are night vision, contrast and colour.
We have recently added the award-winning Zeiss iTerminal to our range of dispensing technology. This enables us to measure exactly how your chosen frame sits on your face, taking spectacle customisation to an even more advanced level.
