LADARWave
 
 
IN BRIEF

Trade name for Alcon's wavefront aberrometer.

 
DISCUSSION

LADARWave, like most aberrometers developed for this industry, may be used as a simple diagnostic tool to measure the wavefront aberrations of the eye and may additionally be used to program an excimer laser ablation, a process of laser energy delivery known as wavefront-guided ablation.

The LADARWave specifically is used in conjunction with the Alcon LADARVision excimer laser system to perform a wavefront-guided ablation procedure known commercially under the trade name of "Custom Cornea".
