Since the advent of soft contact lenses, no solution had been found for accurately and easily testing these lenses. The same systems that had been used for testing dry lenses were applied. This resulted in difficult training of each operator in properly drying the lens, and then quickly testing it before it dried too much causing large power changes. Lenses were not tested in solution because the decreased accuracy caused by the refractive index of the solution was much lower than what was allowable. With the moire deflectometer, a new method has been developed for testing soft lenses in their saline solution, with a much higher accuracy than what is required by the market. In addition, the moire deflectometer allows the quantitative testing of lens quality, and a straight forward method for testing toric lenses. Multi focal lenses can also be analyzed and tested.
