Abbott Announces Availability of iDesign Dx System for U.S. Ophthalmologists and Patients

Abbott announced availability of iDesign Dx System for U.S. Ophthalmologists and Patients. With the introduction of Abbott's iDesign Dx system, U.S. ophthalmologists now have a diagnostic tool that can capture five optical measurements in one three-second scan to determine the patient's visual abnormalities. This highly advanced diagnostic tool measures the internal optics and surface of the eye more precisely than conventional methods, allowing doctors to fully evaluate imperfections that result in poor vision. Obtaining these measurements in one three-second scan enables ophthalmologists to screen patients more efficiently to determine if they are eligible for LASIK or other refractive surgery and to assist in diagnosis of other conditions. The iDesign Dx system uses advanced wavefront sensing technology to measure and map 'aberrated' eyes - i.e., eyes with visual irregularities. This same technology, developed by Abbott scientists, was used by NASA to measure and precisely shape the mirrors in the James Webb Space Telescope to ensure it transmits high resolution images of deep space back to Earth after it launches in 2018. The iDesign Dx system measures not only the optical system, but also individual components of the eye. This means the iDesign Dx system can capture the shape of the cornea; its curvature/power; the ocular wavefront; a patient's refraction (how light passes through the eye); and pupil diameter under different lighting conditions - all in one scan of the eye.
