Dr. De Gracia lab counts with reserved research space (291 sf) at The Eye Institute of Midwestern University. De Gracia Lab will house a state of the art psychophysical system that will measure eye movements as a function of the level of defocus of the image presented and of the refractive state of the patient. The main components of this system are an Eye tracker (Eyelink 1000 plus), two motorized badal systems, and a Hartmant Sack sensor.

A list of the available equipment at the clinic can be seen below:


Topcon TRC-NW400 Camera TearLab
Topcon KR1

Topcon CA-800 Corneal Analyzer


The equipment and the patient populations present at The Eye Institute of Midwestern University offer the perfect enviroment for conducting clinical research.

Particularly, the Nimo TR1504 and the Zeiss i.Profiler Plus are a great combination that allows to explore the optical profiles of multifocal contact lenses. Allowing also to consider the optical aberrations of patients.
