Biometrics in general now accompanies us in many ways in our everyday lives. Biometric data is used, for example, to identify people (fingerprints, facial recognition, integration in passports, etc.). Biometric authentication is often practical, but data protectionists are generally critical of the excessive collection of human data.  

In the world of optics, biometry offers the possibility of optimising vision care through precise measurements and individual adjustments. Eye measurement, ocular biometry refers to the exact measurement of the anatomical characteristics of an eye.  

The use of biometrics in ophthalmic optics and ophthalmology is already extensive and diverse today, whether it is prior to surgical procedures on the eye (cataract operations) or in the use of biometric progressive lenses with the aim of achieving optimal visual performance and promoting eye health. 

Significance for optics: 

Biometry in ophthalmic optics ensures optimal correction and treatment of vision disorders. This can be used to build up a targeted awareness of one's own visual health and personalised vision correction for long-term health. As the trend towards individual and precise vision correction will continue to grow, the goal of all parties involved - from ophthalmologists to industry to opticians - in this regard is to create individual, personalised vision care.   

As varied as the application of the continuously achieved research results may be, whether the use of biometrically measured spectacles or individually fitted contact lenses, all methods are increasingly based on a precise measurement of the ocular surface.
