Ophthonix closes it's doors

Previously on this and other bulletin boards, wavefront aberrometer-designed prescription lenses were touted as a possible means to correct irregular astigmatism (visual aberrations) that plagued refractive surgery patients. In theory and in the marketing, it sounded great. However, even if precise measurement of lens vertex distances for a spectacle frame could be calculated, the slightest slippage or maladjustment of the frame would render the aberrometer-adjusted prescriptions inconsequential. Patient feedback was generally "no better" than conventional spectacle corrections. In addition, aberrations can vary with pupil size and gaze, something this technology could not address.
