The newest intraocular lens inspection system from Lumetrics is headed to a major U.S. manufacturer this month.
Lumetrics has shipped its CrystalWave 765, the latest design in the RRPC member’s CrystalWave line of intraocular (IOL) and contact lens inspection systems. CrystalWave systems are used by the major IOL manufacturers in the world as well as the FDA. Focal length, wavefront and MTF measurements are combined in a single instrument to minimize handling of the lenses.
The CrystalWave 765 system allows lenses to be inspected either wet or dry and can be configured either horizontally or vertically for inspection. The new system can incorporate Lumetrics’ latest IOL rotating cuvette. The cuvette rotates each IOL and allows the axis reading on the CrystalWave to be a direct measurement of cylinder axis error. This measurement is critical, especially as newer, more complex lenses are designed for use in patients.
The CrystalWave K765 also supports production line installations and is insensitive to vibrations. The measurement zone accepts a single IOL or multiple IOLs in a carousel. The optional CrystalServer software allows user-written programs to control CrystalWave in coordination with robotic equipment for fully automated inspection.
With the recent addition of products acquired from Abbott Medical Optics, Lumetrics provides wavefront analysis of IOL and contact lenses, and laser beams in industry, government and independent research labs. The systems provide real-time measurements to improve quality, reduce costs and increase yields.
