  1. Medical Advice and Rayner Products

Nothing contained in the Rayner Site is intended to offer medical advice for the treatment of any illness or disease or to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.

Nothing presented on the Rayner Site is intended to give instruction or guidance on the use of any Rayner products. You must refer to the product labelling and Instructions for Use in all cases.

  1. Medical Device Regulation

Our products are medical devices used by healthcare professionals in the treatment of eye conditions. Our products are regulated by government agencies in every country to which we supply them.

The Rayner Site may contain information about products which may not be available in and/or approved for use in your country. Nothing in the Rayner Site should be taken by you to promote any Rayner product or to promote any use of a Rayner product which is not authorised by the laws of your country.

  1. Access to Raytrace and User Obligations

Access to our proprietary online calculator “Raytrace” and a licence to use the Raytrace software is available free of charge through the Rayner Site. Raytrace is provided for use by medical experts.

Raytrace calculates a non-binding recommendation for a Rayner intraocular lens suitable for the patient whose data has been entered in the calculator. In most instances the calculator will generate a number of lens options to best match the patient’s desired post-operative refractive outcome. The recommendation is not a substitute for the calculation of a customised lens performed by a medical expert, nor does it obviate the need for the user to exercise independent medical judgment. The Raytrace user must verify the recommendation against the biometric input data, the accuracy of which cannot be verified by Raytrace. Raytrace may identify atypical or invalid data but careful checking and verification of the data by a user is essential. Any warnings or advice notes generated by Raytrace must be carefully heeded by the user who has full responsibility for ultimate lens selection.

As a Raytrace user you accept unlimited liability for the accuracy of the data entered in Raytrace and for the practical implementation of any recommendation produced by Raytrace.

Once registered on the Raytrace system you become fully responsible for all access, use and activity on your account and with your password. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and you agree that you will not transfer your account or password, or permit either to be used by anyone who is not you, save with our prior consent.

When you order lenses via Raytrace you will be advised of our Conditions of Sale by which you will be bound once the order for a lens is placed. We shall not be obligated to fulfil any order on the basis of a recommendation generated by Raytrace.

  1. Licence of Raytrace and Restrictions on Use

These Terms give users the right to access Raytrace and to use it for the limited purpose of performing calculations to determine the recommended Rayner lens and its suggested axis placement. Users acquire no ownership rights or interest in Raytrace or in any intellectual or other proprietary rights of Rayner.
