At first glance, the iTrace from Tracey Technologies and the OPD III from NIDEK/Marco Ophthalmic (US-only) may appear to have similar attributes. Both devices offer the same suite of tools: a combined autorefractor, pupillometer, keratometer, wavefront aberrometer, and corneal topographer. So how can you determine which visual scanner will better suit your practice, the iTrace or the OPD? The answer starts with an analysis of how these tools capture data about a patient’s vision.
HOW WE COMPARE
WHY IT MATTERS
In Practical Terms: The iTrace vs The OPD III
In addition to the core differences in the technology used to scan patients, the following are key differences in the functionality and outputs available with the iTrace and the OPD III
The iTrace Dysfunctional Lens Index
Doctors can track movement on a ten-point DLI scale with changes in a patient’s vision and make an informed decision on the right time to recommend a lens replacement procedure like cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange (RLE).
Toric IOL Planning
The iTrace Toric Check
The iTrace generates a precise visual depiction of a toric IOL placement compared to the optimal axis location. It provides the patient’s current refraction and the exact degree of rotation it will take to get to the best outcome for a patient, guaranteeing the best possible results from toric lens surgery. All of this can be done without ever dilating a patient’s eyes!
