  • Testimonials
  • « Jelena and I were very impressed with the wave front analyzer. It was VERY user friendly and intuitive. It was easy to use it, walk away for a couple of days, and go back to it with comfort. The data were accurate and complimentary with compared to the other ancillary measurements performed in the work-up of a cataract patient. On more than one occasion, the analyzer helped refine the data to increase the accuracy of the pre-operative measurements.

    A definite "must have". »   —    Read full testimonial
